Let’s get R E A L . Mom life is hard. There’s many times when I haven’t showered in 2 days, feel overran, patience is thin, and just plain DONE. ⠀
My photography is marketed towards all things Mommy and it’s an absolute passion of mine to produce those sweet connections that you hold with your littles, but also to SUPPORT YOU, ENCOURAGE YOU & BE IN YOUR TRIBE. ⠀⠀
One way to support you is to encourage you to take some much needed time to pamper yourself. Unwind and recharge. Whatever that looks like! I will be giving $60 to one sweet mom to go towards pampering 💆🏼♀️ YOURSELF! You just have to PROMISE that the $$ will go towards taking care of yourself while KID FREE! DEAL?! 💃🏼 Bonus points of sending me a photo of your pampering date. ⠀
Here’s how: comment below sharing your favorite meal- guilty pleasure or not! & tag 2 mama friends who needs spoiled. I’ll pick the winner on Friday, 01/18/19 @ 9am. (Please have a PayPal or Venmo account!)

I just realized that tomorrow, I'm in charge of bringing snacks in for my son's class. It seems like as a parent, there are SO many things to keep track of. It can be a bit mind boggling and I should really invest in a flow chart or something. It's hard, right? Or am I the only one? But, despite all of the juggling, it's totally worth it.
I loved seeing this family again! So many great snuggles and love during our mini session.
About this same time, one week ago, this little guy joined us. I can’t really tell you where the last 7 days went as it was all a blur of diaper changes, nursing, snuggling, napping THEN repeat. Honestly, I’m just trying to soak up every single minute as they’re only this tiny for a fraction of time. #oneweekold#babylove#newbornsnuggles
A warm bath on a snowy day is just what these kids needed! Something to break up the day a little bit. And now for this mama to take her own advice and do the same 🍷💆🏼♀️

Is anyone else starting to feel cooped up because of the rain? There’s only so many days you can watch movies and be lazy. Bonus if you can name what movie Elle’s currently in love with #itmakesmecry#pregnancyhormones#elleleddy

15|365: Oliver has been making his own mac & cheese lately (and is very excited to be such a big boy), and today, Lyla wanted to help him.....or she just wanted to see if he would be willing to share.
This heat || My goodness 😅 feels like we are still in Isa it’s that stifling hot. But today we got out and spent a couple of hours at the pool. I was anxious about 3 kids and a preg mama- but they were amazing and we had so much fun together ✨
Lesson from today: sort out swimming lessons for the bigger two 👌🏼 How are you keeping cool in this heat?
Today I ran out of brave tokens. My last one spent on a beautiful engraved glass apothecary jar of my Mum’s smashed on the floor in front of me. It slipped from the hands of my toddler who I’d had my back turned on as I made lunch. Thankfully no one was hurt. As I crouched down to make sure she didn’t cut herself I broke, the sobs began and didn’t stop. These last few months have been amazing, seriously amazing. Moving to New Zealand is all my soul needed, all we all needed. But holy f*** the adjustment has been hard. I’ve been focusing on the joy, the beauty. But every day I’ve been spending big from my brave token reserves. Holding it together, rolling with all that’s changed, all that I’ve given up, those I’ve said goodbye to, the people, my support network. And today I’m out. The bank is empty. Thank goodness A has gone down for a mid-day nap, for the first time in over two weeks because right now I simply need to sit and breathe deeply for a while. And tomorrow I’m going to get out of the house, change my scene, not unpack anything or set expectation on myself. I need to refill those brave tokens. To recharge. For me and for my family. // ‘Brave tokens’ is a term I made up some years ago now when I needed to understand what was happening inside. Why I sometimes had the ability to cope with huge things and some days I couldn’t even manage the little things. It’s my way of looking from above at all the choices I’m making at that point in my life, because we all choose to spend our brave tokens on different things. And we can’t be spending in all areas of our life all at once or well, you may just find yourself on your knees on the kitchen floor sobbing. I’m a risk taker and have been most of my adult life, but even when you’re a risk taker you need to have a safety blanket, whether that’s money in the bank, a home to go to, people who have your back. Only you know what that is. Just don’t go spending in all areas all at once. Save some brave tokens just in case. #wednesdayramblings 51/365 #herwildandpreciouslife#herwildandpreciouslifecl

Daddy of the year!
I know... The year has just started... But I've been dragging myself ever since... Miles caught a cold and it lead to an ear infection and as he is finally feeling better... Now I caught it from him 🤦
I feel tired and demotivated and this rainy weather isn't helping... 😩

I had been wanting to do a comparison photo of Piper and Sawyer for so long. I think it’s amazing how twins can look so different and wanted to show how unique their eyes are from one another.
This photo didn’t turn out how I had envisioned but I think I like it better than my original idea. Ideally I would have had their eyes completely level, their faces completely on the same plain, and no breakfast left on their chins or chapped lips.
But In trying to capture their visual differences I think I more so ended up capturing their personality differences. When I look at this photo I can see Piper’s quiet, patient cooperation-waiting for Sawyer to follow suit. Her relaxed calm is completely juxtaposed to Sawyer’s tense fidgety impatience. You can see and feel the tension on his face at trying not to blink and trying to be still. He’s also trying to resist the urge to completely defy my instructions and run away.
Not what I envisioned and not perfect, but truly better than what I had planned anyways because it’s raw and real and it reminded me to always strive for that first and foremost, because when I look back on this photo diary of mine I don’t want to see perfect scripted moments (sleeping babies aside 😂). I want to see us as we were truly were.
Sure Theo, I’d love some cream in my coffee. You know what else I’d like? For you to sleep at night, so I can sleep at night 😴
Looking at my page you probably think I have a great sleeper but don’t be fooled! He’s a great napper but he parties all. night. long 😩 I’m actually considering trying some type of gentle sleep training. Soon. Maybe 😴 please share what worked for you!

Ethan had his repeat swallow study tomorrow morning. I’m feeling anxious about it. His feeding trials didn’t go well and it gave him feeding aversion. We stopped the trials in hopes he’ll forget about the whole thing and be able to participate in the study tomorrow. Several specific prayer requests:
1️⃣: we need him to eat. In order for us to see if he’s still aspirating he needs to drink
2️⃣: that he passes. We really do want him to be able to eat on his own, and be safe while he does it. Even if he requires thickened feeds. With that, we also need confidence that the window we get during the study represents his abilities. It’s a short window.
3️⃣: that if there still is an issue, it will show up. The swallow study only looks at a short window of his overall feeding ability which means issues can get missed. We don’t want that. If there is a problem, we want it to show up.
Our ultimate goal is for him to be safe. We want him to be able to eat in his own, but if it’s not safe we need to know that and be confident in whatever decision gets made.
It’s a big day tomorrow, and it will determine his next several months, or longer, in regards to feeding so it’s a big deal and any prayers would be very much appreciated 🙏🏻
I never thought in my wildest dreams that a little spirited brown-haired girl who dresses up her brother’s stuffed animals in doll clothes and a baby in a bear suit with the most mischievous smile would complete me in the way that they do! #myheartishappy
