When this mama, expecting her second son, and her family left California for a new life down under, she knew she had to bring that laid-back California style (which just so happens to mesh super well with life in Australia) into her home. Cassie, who also owns the shop The Coastal Cactus, and her first born show off the beachy indigo nursery in this sweet maternity shoot! Baby boy Leo looks equally confused and excited about his soon-to-be baby brother, and he couldn’t be cuter. After scrolling through the fun photos, be sure to check out Leo’s boho surf first birthday party!
Our growing family recently made the big move from Venice Beach, California to Sydney, Australia with our toddler, Leo, while I was also 5 months pregnant with our second boy, Lennox. With not much time to get settled, I went into nesting mode immediately to create an oasis in our new home. Inspired by the laid-back Californian lifestyle, and using many pieces from my own collection The Coastal Cactus, I created a surfer boy’s dream nursery for our newest arrival.
The beach has always been another member of our family and living only steps to it at our new home, it was only natural to finish my maternity shoot in our new backyard. We may no longer physically be Californians but we’ll carry that lifestyle with us wherever we are in the world!
