Life is messy. Life is complicated. It’s fun and adventurous, sad and terrifying. It’s not a series of perfectly coordinated, little square photos on a screen. It’s so easy to get caught up and lost in the beautifully curated feeds of other accounts, I’m absolutely guilty of it. I’m still very new to this world of blogging through social media, I have a lot to learn. Some days I still think about packing it all in, I let the anxiety get the better of me, I compare myself to others and the little voice of doubt grows louder. But every now and then I’ll receive a message of support and encouragement. It’s something small but it’s enough to drown out that niggling negative voice. That’s the thing about social media. It can make you feel depressed, it can shatter your confidence and peak your anxiety. And just when you think you’re ready to delete everything, your community reaches out and pulls you back from the brink. You find inspiration in the everyday. You can share an experience that helps someone else through a challenging time. Reading the stories behind the posts, speaking honestly about parenting and building a network of support, that’s what I’m here for. Sharing the chaos and excitement of life and parenthood through little square photos on a screen 🖤

Artie meets Aunt Kate ❤️And look at that tiny smiiiile- even though it’s almost certainly gas-induced, it’s still pretty darn cute. Which is good, because he’s discovering just how loud he can yell and exercising that option at 2am these days. I’m a horrible napper but I’m pretty sure I need to make that happen todaaayyy 😴#illjustputonmysleepypants #alreadydone #simplewillphoto #cameramama #cville #charlottesvillephotographer #virginiaphotographer #virginia #crozet #crozetva #clickinmoms #honestly_parents #our_everyday_moments #bnw_littles #dearphotographer #runwildmychild #therebelliousstoryteller #pixel_kids #tinybigadventure #wildandfreekids #blackandwhiteisworththefight #clickinmoms #jj_its_kids #magicalfamilymoments #themonochromaticlens #candidchildhood #kids_in_bnw #shamoftheperfect #beunraveled #talesofthemoment #documentyourdays
Look who came to say hi! 🐶
Wild and free!!! Oh to be young again and do it all over. Hindsight is such a good thing. I wouldn’t change much but I’d definitely take different paths....
She brings SO much joy into our lives. Looks after EVERYONE around her (literally she was trying to hug an ant on the pavement this morning...). She has more empathy than I feel like she can actually manage some days. . Last month she had to say goodbye to her puppy (I call him a “puppy”, but Tana was actually a 14 year old, 50kg dog... but they’ll always be our babies won’t they ?!). . . Trying to explain death to a 4 year old ... god. Hardest part of parenting I have ever had to deal with. I thought we had it under control... at the time when we told her, she took it all in her stride, she didn’t ask any questions and we naively figured she was OK... then, out of the blue a couple of weeks later, the questions came, and they haven’t stopped. . . We went with a full honesty approach to explaining what happened to Tana but now I can’t help but feel like maybe she was too young for that ? Because her concept of what a “long time” is, is when she has to wait a week for something... so trying to explain old age and a “lifetime” to her feels like it’s just not enough comfort. Which is all I want to be able to give her! . . Perhaps we should have told her he went to the farm? Or heaven ... and each to their own, but it’s just not something we believe in so we didn’t feel comfortable with saying that. But now, her fear of dying is the first thing she talks about when she wakes in the morning (before her eyes have even opened) and she brings it up multiple times a day... Talk about feeling out of our depth.
I smile because you’re my sister, I laugh because you can’t do anything about it ♥️
Flash back to the days where this little mini was just managing “Dada” & “Mama” instead of “No mummy! You pick it up” 🤨🤨🤨 Today was a toughie. There were multiple forced deep breaths and stink eyes being thrown across the room. Mamahood is hard some days, like really really hard. But as I sit delving into much needed chocolate I watch her on the monitor and feel so absolutely blessed to have her. Dammit they’re so god damn cute when they’re asleep/quiet 🙈🙈🙈 #aintnohoodlikemamahood
Liebe, Wärme und Licht. Das ist ein Teil echtes Leben. Dokumentarische Familienfotografie bedeutet nicht, nur das Chaos zu sehen, das Unperfekte zu sehen, das Gewöhnliche zu sehen. Sondern auch dahinter zu sehen. Das Besondere im echten Leben zu sehen. Das, was Leben und Familie ausmacht.

Some quiet time this morning with my little honey. She had a pretty terrible night but woke up excitedly pointing and saying 'beeeshh beeeshh' 'muumm-mmmy!' 🌊🙋🏼‍♀️ . This past few months we can't seem to catch a break. It feels like one thing after another in our house at the moment. I try so hard to keep our lifestyle as clean and healthy as possible with lots of variety, but lately it feels like we just keep getting struck down with one thing or another. . On the flipside, OMG how beautiful was today! I feel so so lucky to live by the beach and to be able to dream our days away together in such a magical place...especially days like today🐚👣
Finally there. ❄️🙏🏻❄️ Having a website of your own is like finally buying a house for yourself. For those who have made this decision, know how the smallest of decisions get critical enough when you have your own place to do up. ✨✨✨✨ As much as this digital world today makes having this super duper easy, the creative world gives a tougher space to stand out. It was a good experience to deep dive into my own creative thought process and into the old stacked hard disks. And @wix made this journey worthwhile. ✨❄️✨❄️✨ Link in bio...Check it out.

On a bouclé les valises, enfilé nos vielles baskets et nos nouvelles doudounes, on s’est brossé les dents en se disant que c’était la dernière fois avant 5 mois qu’on le faisait chez nous, on a fermé la maison, essayé de faire une photo de famille, on a ri, on a pleuré, et puis on est parti... America here we go ✈️🇺🇸🤩 @thisisamericatrip #familytravel #travelwithkids #lifeisajourney #travelblog #documentyourdays #instatrip #thisisamerica #americanousvoila #iphonephotography

This spicy little thing!
I was so excited that my 2 grocery store trips with 3 kids went so smoothly I had to document. My wide eyes show how elated I was. No tantrums, no emergent bathroom trips, a happy and sleeping baby. I mean things could not have gotten better. Well, the only thing that could have gotten better is if everyone took naps. Can’t win them all. • • • • • #capturingchildhood #littlepiecesofchildhood #momofboys #momoftoddlers #momof3 #watchthemgrow #documentyourdays #momentsinmotherhood #simplemoments #everydaymoments #honestlyparents #myhonestmotherhood #inspiremothers #cameramama #storytellingmamas #joyfulmamas #houstonmoms #joyfulparenting #therealparenthood #lifecloseup #motherhoodintheraw #blackchildren #blackmothers #browngirlblogger #blackbloggers #blackblogger #blackswhoblog #browngirlswhoblog
When the only way to get a half decent photo is to bribe her with sweets 😂 . . Both my girls are confident and strong minded, and I have no idea where they get it from haha. . Feeling quite sorry for this little lady today as her cough and runny nose has returned, which of course had this mummy up again most of the night! Those darn nursery bugs!!! .

We were loaned this EPIC @ramtrucksaustralia truck for a family adventure last week and it was so much fun getting to drive it off road through terrain which would normally be too rough for our own car to go. I was adamant we had to find our own private beach to drive down onto! . We found this perfect dramatic red rock beach hidden down quite the treacherous tack. It had puddles for the boys to splash about in and a glorious sun set that went from blue to pink to orange which we watched from a cosy bed I set up in the back tray. . We’re so sad the truck has now been returned.. Quill thought all his Christmas’s had come at once getting to ride around in a huge real life version of his favourite toy truck 💪🏼💪🏼 #unrivalledEveryday #EatsUtes
Stay home with me Logie, I miss you when you go to school 😭😭😭 . Words I hear every morning 💔 I hope they are always this close 💓💓 . Outfits from @little.bohemian.traders and sandals from @walnutmelbourne 💛
I hope you know how much you're appreciated, How much you are needed, Me and the kids love you and need you ♡ We wouldn't be able to do what we do without you. We are so proud of you and how hard you work for us. At your job and then how hard you work when you come home. You are not only the best husband and daddy, you are ours ! And how lucky we are to have you around. ♡♡♡♡♡
When your little lady suggests heading into the garden to get some flowers for her bedroom. 💕 She’s definitely my daughter.
Wish I could sleep like this right now...😴
There is no better sound in the world than this 💕
Up close and personal!! While I love a good positive outlook on life, it isn’t always this way! And that’s life! It’s a roller coaster of good and bad! Raising little bear cubs, running my own business and trying to be there for my other half is overwhelming. Some days I nail it, and others not so much.!! I think it’s important to communicate with others of all the outlooks on motherhood and the journey it takes us on, in these little squares!! . . . . #realtalk #itsnotawaysroses #motherhoodintheraw #rawmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #mamaofboys #boymama #littleloves #documentyourdays #motherandson #canon5dmarkiv #printyourphotos #ig_motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #raisingthemkind #raisingboys #sendingmegrey
Jace enjoying some time with his new best friend 😍 (no kangaroos were harmed by Jace 😂😂)
I look at your sweet little boy face and in it, I still see that perfect baby face you once had that will forever be engrained in my memory. These past five years that I have been blessed to be your mommy, have been the best years of my life. From the day you were born, to your first steps, to the very first time you told me you loved me; each moment has made me a better person. YOU have made me a better person. And today, on your fifth birthday, I hope to make more memories that you will hold close and always remember because you, my angel baby, deserve every bit of joy that today, and everyday, brings. Happy birthday Grayson! Mommy loves you to the moon and back, to infinity and beyond, more than life!
This is just a random autumn 🍂🍃 shot, nothing to see here, move on 😄. I'm definitely enjoying life currently. Yesterday my PhD thesis 🎓 was approved for publication and now I'm free. In combination with this lovely weather life is wonderful 😊.

So maybe dessert this late at night wasn’t such a good idea 🤣 Someone has a serious case of the giggles 💕 Having a bad day? Watch this.

“Mommy, am I as wide as the Bald Eagle!?” Almost my little love, almost! It’s hard to believe that just a week ago we were in the 90’s and right now it’s in the 30’s. • • #hesgrowingtoofast #littleloveofmylife
Just one more... with beautiful little twinkle bear (the @babyballetworld mascot) in the picture too. Last I heard which was yesterday evening, the amount raised so far for @tommys_thebabycharity is £216,248. That’s a huge amount and on target to raise the full £500,000. For more information on how to get involved in this amazing @officialpeppa danceathon fundraiser, please refer to my post yesterday.
