Richmond, Virginia Newborn Session | With Photography by Kara Powers

May 26, 2022

When we received this submission, we were instantly drawn in, not only to the connection between the new mother, Dani, and her new baby, but also to the nursery. The details and aesthetic are stunning and deserve a feature all on their own.  Yesterday we shared the newborn portion of this session, today we are sharing the nursery.

“Storytelling has always played a huge role in my inspiration and design process. For our daughter’s nursery I drew inspiration from the freshness of spring felt in Virginia gardens before the first bloom pops. My vision was to create a space that would feel airy yet homey and feminine without the fuss.
After finding my inspiration I looked for images that helped me assemble a color palette and potential patterns or furniture pieces. Once I’d built a color palette and basis of design I began looking for pieces that fit within these design parameters. Finally, I assembled a page with all potential paint colors, fabric patterns, area rugs, lighting and furniture pieces to make sure everything flows nicely and compliments one another.
Don’t be afraid to shop what is already in your home or have a DIY moment. After carefully selecting a beautiful side table that refused to come back in stock I realized that wasn’t going to make or break the space. Instead I opted for a vintage rattan and wicker side table that we already had in our living room. I’ve also long admired the pressed botanicals from Blackwell Botanicals but wasn’t able to splurge on them for the nursery. In their place I pressed some of the florals from my baby shower and mounted then framed them myself which made them a bit more special.” Dani, Mother and DesignerRichmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0012 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0017 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0023 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0016 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0004 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0014 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0018 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0019 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0015 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0022 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0021 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0024 Richmond-Virginia-Newborn-Session-with-photography-by-Kara-Powers-and-featured-on-The-Fount-Collective_0020
