Lifestyle – Mummy and Me

β€œIn a child’s eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.” ― N.K. Jemisin, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

Years and years ago, I decided I was going to do EVERYTHING RIGHT as a parent. Teenagers are dumb. There is no right way. There is the way we choose, the path we walk, and in that way it is right for us and that is all that matters.

Years ago when I learned about the power of breastfeeding, I knew, I KNEW that I would nurse my children.

A year and a half ago when that baby was born–despite much apprehension about the actual breastfeeding, I was determined to make it work. But we hit a snag and my little J and I needed help. I was distraught and lost because this was what I wanted and the mum featured today changed that. She calmed the storm and put us back on course. She humbly turns all the credit back to mom and baby–but no ship arrives in port without a navigator.

As a thank you for making our lives better, I wanted to give her a gift so I invited myself over, sat them down, and started making them laugh. I asked mummy to tell embarrassing stories (she did not disappoint) and the girls to share what they loved about mum and they laughed nearly the entire time! Their family is one of love and laughter and empowerment–because both daughters loved how much their mum listened to them, valued them, and treated them with respect.

Thank you to my friend, midwife, and lactation consultant. You will always hold a special place in my heart!

The Biggest Family Yet!

Sorry for the delay in posting, we’ve had a busy week here welcoming a new family into our unit, preparing for our own move, and taking care of out little mess maker! I have been working diligently on some amazing sessions in the mix of all of that so be prepared for some gorgeous family portraits!

I had the pleasure of working with this cute BIG family and we had such a blast and it was such a challenge to make sure we captured all of the small connections and the big. But I think we succeeded in getting a ton of laughs and a ton of great memories to have for a lifetime! Stay tuned to see more of the littlest one here with her mom, dad, and big brother!
