As we begin to reveal a very personal rebrand transition, I thought I’d slowly start posting and sharing elements of what our brand is all about. So why not start with a post and share what inspired me to start my passion in the first place; my family ❤️ . . This past weekend was a very special weekend. I know I’m a bit late but I’d be lucky to find 5 minutes for both my hands throughout my journey into motherhood. . . This weekend my beautiful baby girl, officially turned 1 month and I am shocked with how fast time is flying by. It made me sad every time I would notice all of my nieces and nephews growing up but now this is time speed on a whole different level. Happy 1 month my little Chicha-Ronnie ❤️ . . The 2nd most significant thing that happened this weekend is the 1 year mark of being married to my amazing husband. This past year definitely strengthened our relationship but I didn’t think I would fall more in love with you until the day I gave birth to our beautiful girl. I don’t think I would have been able to do 15 hours of labour and everyday of this past month without you. You have been incredible. You have been so helpful, encouraging and seeing how you are with our daughter helps me through the rough days. Motherhood is NOT an easy transition to ease into but something inside of me finds strength to keep going because I have you by my side ❤️ I love you Hunn. . . #husbandsofinstagram #menofinstagrams #torontomom #mother #motherhood #pregnancy #momlife #womenempoweringwomen #mothercare #dailyparenting #parenthood_unveiled #mommyblogs #socialmediamoms #mamasofinstagram #momitforward #mytinymoments #mynameismama #stopdropandmom #heaventhrumylens #ladypreneur #onthegrind #womeninbusiness
On day 8 of our #spauldings25daysofchristmas2018 , we did one of my favorites... our annual ornament and cocoa outings. This tradition came about in 2008 from sadness - my dad passed away suddenly and tragically at the beginning of that December, and our newborn son was having a lot of struggles due to reflux. It wasn’t the happiest time in our house. But I wanted Christmastime to always be special and happy for her, so I began this tradition of taking the kids out (one-on-one) to pick out an ornament and then go for cocoa. Year after year, we love seeing all the ornaments they’ve chosen when we decorate the tree, and - year after year - I’m grateful that we turned a sad time into a special, loving memory. Swipe to see her ornament outing eight years ago... and to see her brother’s (who’s no longer a struggling newborn!) selection this year. 🎄
It doesn't matter how old Ava gets, she will forever be her Grandpa's girl. Her love for this man & his love for her knows no end. If given the opportunity she would leave me in a heartbeat to go live with him. ___________________________ Now, how long it would last, that I don't know. Because growing up him & my mom didn't make things easy for us. I was definitely that Child who always felt that other kids had it better and life was just so unfair. But now looking back and being a Mother myself, it's so easy to see all the reasons why they did what they did when it came to our upbringing. And I honestly wouldn't be half the person I am today otherwise. ___________________________ So when I hear those sweet little words dart out of my teenagers mouth that form "That's not fair" or "you're the worst mom ever" it's like music to my ears. 😂 Because that is when I know that without a doubt I am doing my job and I am doing it right. 👏
I love love love seeing your little ones grow! Just finished a 3 session series (maternity, newborn and one year milestone) and I have to say these baby's first year collections are my favorite thing EVER 😍. Swipe to see when this little buddy was brand new and when he was still growin' away inside his sweet mama!
I had an evening session cancel Nov 17th. I had been shooting minis all day. I called my husband, he dressed our trio so i could capture these priceless images. I do believe it was a gift from God. They are the last images my children will ever have with their father. He died unexpectedly Nov 20th from sepsis. #sepsis #sepsisawareness

Just a couple more sessions to go before my season is complete! So fun to have this crew as one of my last sessions. They sure do love that little lady 🙌😍👶🏼 can you blame them?!!
A sneak peak from Amos’ newborn session today!! 👶🏼
We're all snowed in today, so we took some time to make Salt Dough Ornaments as a family. Aelynn had a fantastic time and there were lots of laughs throughout the night. I could use a few more snow days with these two 💕❄️👨‍👩‍👧 . . . . . . . . #letthembelittle #letthekids #candidchildhood   #magicofchildhood #momswithcameras #dearphotographer #mom_hub #pixel_kids #simplychildren #cameramama #childhoodunplugged #momtogs #documentyourdays #follow_this_light #celebrate_childhood #atdiff_kids #the_sweet_life_unscripted #sharejoy #letthemexplore #the_sugar_jar #enchantedchildhood #heaventhrumylens #lifewellcaptured #childrenseemagic #jj_its_kids #runwildmychild  #shotwithmoxie
I’ve been going back and forth lately on whether I should post studio stuff on insta or if I should stick to more of my outdoor sessions, (gridproblems, amiright? 🤣) but the thing is... I REALLY love studio stuff! So if I’m being true to what makes my heart tick, I guess I should be posting both. But since that feels a little risky to me, I’ll start with a studio one that was “outside”. P.s. this is the little fire thing I was making in my stories last week. I’ve had two people request I make them one... sooooo I’m probably just going to go full time as a plush toy creator and forget this whole photography thing anyway 🤣🤣 send in your orders, friends! 🧵👩🏼‍🎨🧶
I mean someone had to shovel the driveway right...?? 😂😂😂

Such an enchanting time of year ✨
Twinkle twinkle little star how comfy this sweater is! It’s glittery but super soft! Cotton + Lycra which makes it bling! With little frills in the bottom to make it girly girl 💕 Made to order on our Etsy shop! Check it out now
Definitely my new favorite outfit 😭😍 Levi has been borderline too big for his 6 month size clothes so when there were black Friday and cyber Monday deals I went a little crazy. 😬 I bought him A LOT of clothes on accident, but they’re soooo cute. . I also find myself always buying new stuff for the house, and new stuff for Levi, but never anything for myself anymore! I think that happens to all moms. . I decided to get the @fabfitfun box to treat myself - because self care is important!! 😉 I’ve been pretty happy with it so far. If you’re interested, I posted a video on my IGTV showing off everything in my winter box. . I’m thinking about also treating myself to a nap tomorrow. 🤣 . Do you have any subscription boxes that you love - or anything you like to treat yourself with? Or is it all about the babies all the time?? 💕
Adding her wish to the wish tree. It’s not for world peace, but a snow fort would be pretty nice right about now. ❄️
At the tree farm again just for the tire swings and the smell of freshly-cut trees. When I saw that our loop theme this week is something red, I made sure the kids dressed in red whenever I had my camera around! _________________________________ I'm teaming up with some of my friends again for another magical loop filled with all things fall!

Last week we were on vacation on a Disney Cruise! We had so much fun! My daughter got an Anna makeover at the Bibiddi Bobbidi Boutique before meeting her idol and favorite princess, Anna! It brought tears to my eyes with how excited she was! It took me by surprise! What moment with your kids made you unexpectedly emotional? . . . #disney #disneycruise #anna #makeover #bibbidibobbidiboutique #frozen #momlife #childhoodunplugged #magicofchildhood #mytinymoments #acupofmotherhood #parenthood_moments #heaventhrumylens #littlepiecesofchildhood #mumlife #momentsinmotherhood #watchthemgrow #momlifeisthebestlife #moments_of_mom #justmomlife #magicofmotherhood #mommymoments #momlove
Have you ever considered birth photography? Moments like this...the moments in the first hour or two after your child birth...these moments make it SO worth it. They are THE most precious. Those moments are ones you will never get back. These are my favourite moments and they are only possible when you hire a birth photographer. So seriously. Consider it!
So you how you get these great ideas from pinterest and then you decide to actually try them out and it's not all sunshine and rainbows? Nailed it! The last ones my favorite by the way! Photo credit to my 5 year old who actually did an awesome job! It's not his fault the waves were throwing us around and his mom is a crazy person!
I can honestly say baby Zeke is an awesome sleeper, but I have never had so much lack of sleep in my life. Raising four kids, I can’t help but constantly worry about them while they’re sleeping. It’s insane how much your mind can race and have all these scenarios playing in your head. After all, our main goal as parents is keeping your kids safe, right? Today over on the blog I’ve partnered with @myLevana and I’m talking about their oma sense monitor that tracks your baby’s breathing while they are sleeping!

12.8.18 {Greenery} Holiday prep is in full swing around here. Lots of lights, cookies, and pine in the air. Not to mention a little trip to the ballet to see "The Nutcracker" put on by American Midwest Ballet. But... my shopping is only about half done. Oops.

Christmas at the White House last night ... one of the privileges of a lifetime 🇺🇸🎄#christmasinwashington
Church, basketball, recitals, decking the halls... we need a longer weekend. No one was kidding when they told me to wait and see how busy life gets as they grow older. But, here we are growing, happy, healthy and more than grateful to be knee deep in normal... ❤️ . . . . . #dailyparenting #motherhoodrising #ig_motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #bestofmom #motherhoodthroughinstagram #ohheymama #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #momtogs #momswithcameras #littleandbrave #pixel_kids #letthembelittle #honestmotherhood #umh_kids #our_everyday_moments #simplychildren #clickinmoms #mytinymoments #childofig #thepursuitofjoyproject #mom_hub #magicofchildhood #motherhood #b1withdetails #documentyourdays #heaventhrumylens #embraceeverydayjoyfully #magicinthedetails
To the guy out there who‘s hesitant about dating the single mom—look at this picture and shoot your shot, guy. The package deal includes a love like no other. Ever since the day they first met, my man and my daughter have built up such a strong bond and I’m only a little jealous. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀———————— ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . #celebratechildhood #dailyparenting #pocket_sweetness #ig_motherhood #momtogs #thehappynow #candidshots #dearestviewfinder #momblogger #momswithcameras #sharetheeverymom #thatsdarling #savorlifeintensely #pursuitofjoyproject #darlingmovement #dadgoals #our_everyday_moments #flashesofdelight #iphoneonly #dontforgetdads #fatherhoodislit #myhappycapture #daddydaughter #holdthemoments #lifestyle #liveauthentic #igers #lovelysquares #honestmotherhood #heaventhrumylens

I went on a impromptu trip to NYC today to be the classic tourist and see all beautiful Christmas displays. I just love going on random adventures, there is just something about it that makes it so fulfilling. After a busy Fall season it was so nice to unwind and have the weekend off from work. I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend with their loved ones ❤️ • • • #dearphotographer #documentyourdays #magicofchildhood #simplychildren #thesincerestoryteller #childhoodunplugged #dearestviewfinder #thebloomforum #ourcandidlife #letthembelittle #littleandbrave #heaventhrumylens #candidchildhood #thefamilycollective #ctvisit #fairfieldcountyct #westport #ridgefieldct #wiltonct #connecticutlife #katonahny #lifestylenewbornphotography #lifestylefamilyphotography
LOVE this... it takes me back... bathing the babies (so many grandchildren!) at nan and pop's were always in the kitchen sink, why is that? It's not as though they didn't have a bath. Maybe it's because they lived in the country, on a farm, with tank water. #memories . This was taken for our free 7 day mini photography course. FEATURED | @jennigphoto .
