Room Refresh by Robyn Birkey

The idea of sharing a room with a sibling is very familiar with me because I did so with my sister for most of my childhood. We are four years apart and I would say it was pretty great for the most part. Of course we fought about whose stuff was on the other person’s “side” of the room most days but I wouldn't trade it for anything because for all the fights we had, I can recall all the good times as well. Sharing clothes, watching my sister do her makeup and hair to go out, sneaking into her bed if I had a bad dream and staying up just talking into the night.

Our three kids are now in the position of sharing one room and though I had some fear going into it with how it would all go down, I’m excited for their memories that they will share, similar to mine.

Having two boys in a girl in one space got my wheels turning as far as how I was going to create a space that felt fun, warm, and welcoming to each of them. To be honest, it was a little overwhelming thinking of going to multiple places and pulling things together on my own, so I quickly decided I needed a one-stop-shop for all their bedding and it was the right route to go.

Pottery Barn Kids made the experience stress free when finding coordinating colors, patterns and textures that tied both the boy’s bedding and Nova’s crib bedding together beautifully. The multiple sheet options they have gave me so much more variety that I could’ve hoped for. I could see everything in my cart that I was considering and visualize how the room would come together so easily. The major cherry on top of this was knowing that their sheets are organic and fair-trade! How amazing is that.

Sweet baby Dwight by Robyn Birkey

This sweet babe Dwight or JR as his parents call him, came a few weeks before his due date and very soon after I did his mama’s maternity session!

I find it incredible to meet with a mama who is expecting and have the chance to chat about what’s to come while photographing her and the little miracle within.

Then, to have the opportunity to photograph that darling baby that is now earth side, witness as they draw him so close, soaking in just how little he really is (I do not have baby fever, I do not have baby fever… I do not…) and watching their pure love pour out for this new life is honestly so special and wild.

Just seriously incredible.

I love it.

Also.

Yes. Those are Cats…in a cradle.

No, we did not pose them.

And yes. You bet that song was played shortly after discovering said cats.

Now Cats in the Cradle is probably stuck in your head.

Sorry, not sorry.
