I am 4. I am not built to sit still, keep my hands to myself, take turns, be patient, stand in line or keep quiet. I need motion, I need novelty, I need adventure and I need to engage the world with my body. Let me play. (Trust me, I’m learning.) ✨🌈
Little babe sat there smacking his lips together watching his brother & sister enjoy their @mollywoppynz
gingerbread kids (que he wants a piece of goodness too 😂) & with no nasties, artificial flavours, colors or preservatives & handmade using only the best & natural ingredients why not let him enjoy one too 😜❤ #mollywoppycookies #nzbest #gifted
As he gets older I notice the way their relationship changes. He doesn’t tolerate her “imagination” very well unless it’s part of a game they’ve created. He’s very much a rule follower, and when I look at them together sometimes I almost see a reflection of my husband and me. She has all these ideas and feelings and stories and he just wants those stories to be what actually happened and not always based on dreams or emotional conjecture. I like to think though that they will also compliment each other the way that we do, in that as they grow she’ll help him learn to dream big and he’ll help her learn how to pursue those dreams.
Let’s jump into a br@nd
Woensdag is hier tegenwoordig omgedoopt tot ‘tostidag’, apart eigenlijk hoe een gewone boterham met kaas en ham ineens heel snel verorberd wordt als hij gegrild is ;-) Zijn jouw kinderen goede eters?

Desde que pasamos a Santino a su cama, la hora de dormir incluye: acostarse a su lado, contarle un cuento y abrazarlo un ratito, pero justo cuando ya lo dejo listo para dormir y salgo de su cuarto, me pide agua.
Al principio creí que eran cuentos, pero como yo duermo con mi pachón al lado, no podía pensar en que se acostara con sed.
Muchas veces llegué a perder la paciencia, hasta que me topé con la explicación, del porqué los niños piden agua antes de dormir.
Resulta ser que esto lo hacen, más que por sed, para comprobar que sus padres estamos ahí, y que puede confiar ciegamente en nosotros, porque responderemos a cualquier inconveniente o llamada, y que cuidaremos de él.
Más que el vaso de agua, nuestros hijos quieren saber que estamos disponibles para ellos, fiables a toda costa.
Eso si jamás le llevo un vaso de agua, para que no se lo eche encima, los mejores son los zippy cups o vasitos entrenadores, para evitar cualquier accidente.

Eine kinderleichte Herbst Bastelei, die eingefilzte Kastanie. Und jedesmal aufs Neue ist die Freude über den braunen Schatz in der weichen Hülle groß.
My number one goal in life is not to be on the cover of a magazine, or make millions of dollars, or be a household name. These things aren't wrong, (they can be if they're put first in your life) but anything outside bringing glory to Christ while enjoying him falls short. It just does, because that's what we were created to do. So my number one goal in life is to raise these two babies (and hopefully more) to be unshakably confident that their identity comes from Christ and Christ alone. I want them to know, so deeply it's a part of their mind's framework, how his love for them changes everything. No more striving, no more trying to live up to expectations, no more putting their hope in how other people see them. They can just be whoever they think God created them to be.
What is YOUR number one goal in your life? If you're a christian, does it ultimately bring glory to God? Big dreams are great, but as christians our MAIN goal should be to bring glory to God. If you're not a christian, go think about why you'd want to bring glory to God in the first place, and then seek out the answer if you're still thinking about it. I promise it will be worth it.

Today Erika came over and did a mini session in my backyard. I think we were outside for a total of 10 minutes and she was able to capture a ton of photos in those 10 short minutes with the girls and me [as they ran around like their crazy selves]. 📷: @itserikachristine
Such a beautiful Mum to be... This was an outtake, the light was so patchy and bright against the shadows from the trees but there's something about it I just love.
Sweet Momma... She looked so beautiful in this red dress, this is one of my favourite @miiestilo
dresses from my collection, I also love outdoor maternity sessions.
Eskimo kisses... I remember the first time
When I held you tight
In my arms
That is when I learnt
To live life to its fullest.... I remember immediately
Falling in love
With those shiny eyes
Tiny little hands
Holding my fingers strongly... And then your magic
Spread all around
And I felt the breeze...
The breeze of happiness
Opening doors of love
One after another
And turning my sad days
Into a joyful one
I remember your laughter
Ringing bells in my mind
And giving me strength
To seek a unique dream
In the journey of life... You are my first born
And love of my life
For when you were born
That is when I learnt
How it feels to be a mother
And be on top of the world.....
I love those in between moments during family sessions. ✨
We both love to play with our travel accessories when we are not traveling.
Playing hide and seek with our favorite @decathlonsportsindia
Double exposure practice on my little one. 💙 I love capturing him play!
It’s gonna be fun. The food amazing. The location, forgetaboutit...
But most importantly. We want you to leave feeling BETTER.
To have a better BUSINESS.
To know your WHY better.
To feel a better sense of DIRECTION.
To know how to BUILD a better website, instagram + tribe.

This is my promise that from this day forward I will no longer doubt or second guess my self. 🙅🏽♀️I will no longer let the past dictate my future. I am committed to learning and growing.
I promise I will be prouder of myself, believe in myself and have confidence in myself with who I am. I promise that no matter what- I will learn from disappointments and rejection and not let it stop my focus.
I am doing this because I want to be an example to my children and show them they’re capable of anything and I owe it to myself and my loved ones to not let life get in the way of the future I want.
I may not always get it right, I may have my weak moments, but this is my promise to fight EVERY DAY to become the person I’m meant to be.
Old Me 💋
I really don’t care to cook, but I must say it’s fun to have help.
I’m a day late; I don’t think I wanted to admit it, but this boy is one month old. Damn. #watcharcherallengrow
Yes he really is this sweet! He is a lover! He is sensitive and loves his mama sooo much! I love him too! So thankful for this little guy!

It does not matter what others think of you.
Repeat 👏🏻 After 👏🏻 Me 👏🏻 It does NOT matter what other people think of me.
Stop letting that haunt you! Stop dwelling on it. Stop letting it affect your every thought.
Your self-worth, your success, your happiness- do not depend on other people’s opinions. There will always be someone who does not approve. There will always be someone who thinks they know better. If it’s not about this, they’ll find something else.
But none of it matters. Their opinion does not matter.
Are you happy? Do you approve? That’s what matters.
Stop trying to control things you have no control over. Start focusing on what you think of yourself. Start believing in yourself and knowing that you are who you are meant to be.
If it doesn’t serve you, if it doesn’t bring you happiness- throw it out 👊🏻
A friend asked me tonight what my favorite thing to capture is. Hands down it’s births! It’s an adrenaline rush when I get the call! I can barely think clearly as I gather my gear. Witnessing and being able to capture one of life’s greatest miracles.....its a huge blessing that people entrust me to be there to capture these moments. I am waiting for this mama to give birth to their firstborn! I love the magic and the excitement in all of it! I can’t wait to find out if this little is s girl or a boy!
If you’re ready for lots of family snuggles, sweet kisses, and a couple of adorable preschoolers, I’ve got you covered! LIVE on my blog is the adorable Carney Family!!⠀
I had the honor of photographing @courtneycarneyphoto
’s family this past weekend, and I’m so excited to share photos from their session because it was such a beautiful night for pictures! 😍 ⠀
Head on over to the BLOG! (Link in my profile!)
After two long days of battling it out, this papoose finally conceded and picked up her room. Mommy wins, but I'm so exhausted and mentally drained that it doesn't feel like a victory. I'm just hoping that this strong will is channeled into good, positive causes one day!
needing to hit the “redo” button on the last couple of days for all 3 of us 🤷♀️ tears, tantrums, more tears, lack of sleep, mom hogging, and lots of saying “sorry sissy”. and what do I do when I have 5 minutes to myself?!..look at pictures of my little nuggets and remember... mamas, we are doing some pretty amazing work. some would say the most important work. we are teaching our little people to be compassionate little humans. we are teaching them love, kindness and a lot of forgiveness. 💚 keep up the life-changing work. it’s not hidden. it’s very much alive. like this sweet smile on my babie’s face.
Two peas in a pod!! It felt so nice outside tonight so they spent a good amount of time swinging & laughing. Looking forward to those cooler temps that should be showing up soon! ❤️
People: Four little kids and a traveling husband?! I don’t know how you do it. You must really have it all together!!!
