I sort of suck at adulting and have a tendency to be scattered and forgetful (sorry friends who are reading this and nodding because it’s true) I promised myself I would start trying harder because mom brain is real and mine isn’t going anywhere anytime soon; so I caved and bought my first @eccololtd
planner. My friend from @krissyannedesigns
(who is KILLING it in the planning world, btw) was gracious enough to send me some of her beautiful stickers to help me along.
Go check out my blog for more pics and info! Link in bio.
For me it really is the simple things. Slow mornings, hot tea, cuddles, sunshine on my skin and being together. It just doesn’t get any better than this!
I love photographing families year after year and capturing them as they grow. Thank you @postlady628
for sharing your sweetest family with me.

one of the very first orders of business Z wanted to attend to after arriving in tokyo... was finding a library.
when she misbehaves or melts down or loses her marbles, the absolute worst discipline imaginable to her is losing her books.
she loves reading, she loves being read to, she loves holding books and just looking at pictures. she loves visiting libraries and she loves books in a way i have never quite seen before in a child.
yesterday we discovered our first library and what i’m sure will be a favorite hangout spot for years to come. ❤️ .
Beautiful carved wooden vase 😍

When you baby does those bloodcurdling screams when your driving , the kind where they lose their breath and you have absolutely no choice but to pull over and whip out the boob! 😅 I’ve totally got this right ?! 🤪. #mumlife
Spontaneous lunch time picnics with @steph_fahie
are always super relaxing when the baby sleeps all the way there, during and on the drive home! 👏🏼

Her last time to Disneyland for a while!
"I love how extremely easy this buggy is to fold up and down, how easy the buggy travels in the city and how great it is to just grab with you in the car or on the bus"
head out with our go buggy like @tanjaamandap
& Emma! designed for the city, go is compact & fuss-free for your parenting day.
Loving this spring sunshine!!! But... Please help a mama out!
What do you do when the playgrounds are scorching hot the slippery dip could fry an egg?!? 🍳
I can’t believe my baby girl is 22 months!!!
We have another family friendly Seattle area hike to add to our list! Yesterday, we headed up to Granite Falls, Washington, and hiked along the historic Lime Kiln Trail. Round-trip to the Lime Kiln (built in the 1890s) is just over 5-miles along easy to travel, flat terrain. With big leaf maple leaves piled along the trail, mushrooms a plenty, and a chill in the moist, foggy air, it’s an autumnal wonderland this time of year!
[Paid] the equivalent of £20 for this bucket and spade set in Seychellois rupees, and now Chance *doesn’t want it* 🤦🏾♀️
How sweet is our reindeer set in our gorgeous double layered bows. This set has been hugely popular and I can definitely see why 💗 we are cutting off all Christmas orders on the 26th of November ladies, so I have plenty of time to get these beauties out xx
Finally catching a breather to upload this family session that I got to sneak in when in WA for the workshop with @willow.and.wilde
and my oh my has it been fun to get to play with this sunset over the water factor!! Take me back 🙌
It's blurry, but sometimes that's what you get when you're trying to capture the joyful face of a 2 year old 😍
Anyone else’s nearly 10 month old refusing naps? This little munchkin hasn’t had a single nap today, despite all my best efforts. Which doesn’t help when I’ve been saving all the important things I needed to do (a billion assignments) for when she is asleep. You win this round Matilda. But you just wait till bedtime tonight 😝 Mummy will finally have her ‘metime’ which let’s be honest, consists of browsing through my phone until I pass out...
🐍 Craziest thing I’ve ever seen, Halloween days at a historical park.... walked into this room with London to a table with tons of snakes, kids coming and going, grabbing and pulling on these snakes, say whatttttt?! London kept her distance, but loved it! #WeLoveOctober
It’s been a very busy week, so I’m posting this a bit late but Happy Second Birthday to my Baby! The changes that have come about in him just by the age of two are enough to leave me baffled! I see the changes in him as he develops his little Atti-two-tude (see what I did there?), and personality! It’s amazing how smart these little people are! The inquisitive nature, the love you feel, it’s something unimaginable!
I feel grateful to have such amazing family and friends in our lives! Thank you to everyone who attended and to everyone who helped me put this Sesame Street in the Fall birthday party together! ❤️ Zakariyah loves seeing Elmo, Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch everywhere! ——————- Here are the personal shoutouts:
My MIL and Cousin (cakes by Bushra) for the amazing sweets table and cake!
My very talented cousin at Zarsh Decor for helping me with the decor, centerpieces, and support!
My two BFF’s who are always there to help no matter how crazy life is, and I couldn’t have set up everything or captured these moments without them: Suzanne Abubaker and Rabia Khan, you two are family for life! Also shout out to Rabia for the mind blowing tiramisu!
Afifa Ahmed for the awesome matching shirts!
Finally Sameed S. Khan for busting out the camera and taking the amazing photos!

I love how in home sessions always have something extra special about them ♥️
Today I was going to literally pull my hair out. OR run outside to chuck a whole carton of eggs on the street because my boys were driving my CRAZY! Lots of tears this afternoon (on all our ends) so I’ll just look at this loving smiley family of four to remind myself why I wanted children. AND because The Reid’s are just so dang awesome.
The pace of nature is patience. While we are slaving in the hustle of this life, it is the nature that's evolving patiently, secretly indulged in flourishing itself, enduring all odds of each season and coming out strong. There are lessons in it to learn from. You can't speed up a phase in life. Be it growth, loss, or pain. The only way to transcend it is through. And holding onto patience gives all the strength that you need in the time of growth. A humble seed toughens up to sprout its roots, the roots expand enough so that adequate water is sucked up to boost the shoot against the gravity, the shoot breaks away the shackles of soil and extends upwards towards the light. Isn't it hard work? The wisdom of nature is beyond comprehension.
A walk in the path of the fields teach you some grave lessons about life and humility. There’s something so beautiful about a tree that has stood the test of time and continues to thrive for years and years. The stronger, the taller, the firmer the tree is, the more extended, expanded and widened the roots will be. And this pretty much sums up the laws of this life. The law of humility. In the process of reaching out to the sky, seeking the light, staying true to one's roots, having a spiritual connection with Allah swt is so crucial. Imagine if a tree didn’t have deep roots then as it grows taller it would become top heavy and would fall in a strong wind, crumbles by its own weight. What a perfect picture of the life of a believer. When your roots go deep in the faith you have in Him there’s no opportunity for the external things to get to you, just like a tree with deep roots is unaffected by strong winds, fierce rain and tumultuous storms. So hold onto Him. The only anchor in the storms of change
