Real Home - Baby Nursery

In May, a friend of a friend asked me to design her wedding album. She and her husband have been married for three years, and are now expecting their first child. I had a blast working with Heather on her album. She is such a sweet girl - I like to now consider her my virtual friend :) Here's a link to her blog to see the post she wrote about the album.

A couple weeks ago she asked if I could help with some wall art for the nursery. She liked the Rod Stewart "Forever Young" print, but wasn't sure if the colors would work. So she sent me some pictures of the room decor and the corner where the sign would be hung. I did a couple variations, with different shades of grey and yellow. But when she found this beautiful grey frame at Michaels, I knew a cream background would be the perfect fit. I matched the yellow accent to the pillows and ribbons in the room and...voila!

I'm so excited to "meet" Heather and Christian's sweet little one. Now that the nursery is ready, Baby can come any time!

Amanda and Bradley

Another pretty album to share. I love the details from this wedding. Most items were handmade or bought on etsy. The invitations on the first page were custom designed by her bridesmaid Chelsea Windlinger. To see more pictures from the wedding, you can check out their featured post on the Ruffled blog.

Erum and Moiz

As a friend pointed out this weekend, I've been behind on updating the KruBooks blog with recent work. And it's not for a lack of having beautiful things to share! First up, this gorgeous South Asian wedding shot by photographer Julie Wilhite. Luckily I've done a Hindu wedding album before, so I was prepared for the number of pictures and festivities. There are so many different events involved in the traditional South Asian wedding that Erum and Moiz decided to do two albums - one for the Mehndi and Sangeet, then another album for the wedding ceremony, reception, and crying ceremony.
