Ahhhh December. The start of “slow season” for photographers. Time to enjoy family. I have decided that I am going to take advantage of the slowing of business to start a personal project to share with all of you! As you know if you follow me, I specialize in children and family lifestyle photography. I take pictures of my children all the time, but rarely make the time to sit down and edit the everyday magic I capture of my own children. I am going to begin sharing a photo everyday from my own life.... something that speaks to me. Children are just magic. Everything they do and say- these sweet moments are just so fleeting, and I want to create images for your family AND mine that I can go back to years from now and it pull me right back to that sweet moment in time. As I share some of my family, I will also be booking some cozy indoor lifestyle “documentary” sessions for clients. This is the perfect time of year to let me come to your home and document the little details of your everyday life you will want to remember! Message me to book a session. *I will be running a $50 off special through the end of the year for anyone who books a documentary lifestyle session for the new year!* #documentyourdays #kidsofinstagram #indiantrailphotographer #lifestylephotography #documentaryphotography #familyphotography #candidchildhood #momswithcameras #ig_today #shared_joy #lookslikefilm #our_everyday_moments #ourcandidlife #clickinmoms #childhoodunplugged #shared_joy #magicofchildhood #thesincerestoryteller #mom_hub #charlottephotographer #charlottelifestylephotographer #ncphotographer
👼🏼 Saint Nicolai 👼🏼 . As you already know, we are a Moldovan family living in Italy. So, how about our holidays? Many of them are similar, and those that differ, we just combine them. In this way, this year David will have two Christmas 😍 and other celebrations twice, because in the Republic of Moldova they are celebrating holidays from another calendar, the old Julian. . Tomorrow in Moldova will celebrate Saint Nicolai, a celebration with great significance to me (my father was Nicolai). So the legend says that Saint Nicolai is the protector of the childrens and that on this night he comes to every child to bring something, if he was good then he would receive sweets, and if he was naughty then Saint Nicolai would bring him a nugget. For this the children had to prepare the boots on December 18th, to wash them, to clean them and to put them near the stove. . When I was little I cleaned many many boots 🤗🤗🤗 . . . . . . . . . . #cuddleandkind #candidslumber #uniteinmotherhood #letthembelittle #thehappynow #ig_motherhood #momlifeisthebestlife #mommylife #persuepretty #themotherhoodcorner #postthepeople #posttheordinary #lifeofadventure #magicofchildhood #candidchildhood #dailyparenting #instagood #darlingmovement #lifeandstyle #lifedailymoms #thatsdarling #livethelittlethings #sharegoodness #flashesofdelight #documentlife #realmotherhood #thehappycapture #letthekids #thesearethedays #creatingmoments
352/365: homemade essential oil playdough this morning was a big hit 😄 . recipe (this makes one serving, I made two total, one for each kid): 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt, 1 TBS vegetable oil, 5-7 drops food coloring, 2 drops essential oil [we used orange & peace+calming today], 1/2 cup warm water- mix all ingredients together in that order and you’re good to go! add more flour if it’s too sticky 👌🏼 . . . #hanlonfam365 #ronanandever
So many people message me and ask, how did your girls get so close, they truly seem like best friends? The truth is they ARE best friends, but it’s nothing we did that made them that way. Maybe it’s the 2 year age gap? Perhaps it’s that their personalities just jive well together? Or it’s that it’s me and them almost all day every day and so they’re forced to be each other’s best playmate. It’s probably a combination of all of the above. There’s one thing I’m sure of though. I gave them the very best gift I could in giving them a sibling. #notalltreasureissilverandgold #sisters #roryandryan 📸: @katrinalawtonphotography
We are so excited about today! Dan is going to be on the boat for the sea-trial and survey, and I’m so jealous! But the kids would miss nap and that’s no fun for anyone, so we decided he’d go alone. He’s going to keep me updated with videos, so keep an eye on the stories!
Santa came to our town this weekend! Mila used to be so scared of him and now she is obsessed! Swipe left to see the joy in their faces. And yes baby Xavi fell asleep on Santa. 😍
Some days as his mama are hard. He was an early walker and talker and has always been a sharp thinker. At two, he was telling me which way to turn so he could get where he wanted to go. Now at four years old, he’s talking back like a little adult. Most of the time, I don’t even think he’s trying to be disrespectful but his curiosity leads to endless questions about why we’re doing things and what comes next. When I’m at my best, I’m thankful for his imagination, curiosity, and desire to learn. Other days, I’m exhausted and just.want.the.questions.to.stop. So here’s to reminding myself to save my best self for home and to just let my kid be a kid, extra marshmallows and all. . . . . . . . . . . #parkersturg4 #sturgeonchristmas2018 #motherhoodslens #motherhoodrising #clickinmoms #santamug #boymom #boymama #momofboys #motherhoodissantifying #storytellingmama #myhonestmotherhood #magicofchildhood #transracialfamily #mamahoodsquared #rainbowsofmotherhood #withlovemomma #newlymama #honestmommin #momentsinmotherhood #fullhandsfullheart #bedeeplyrooted
Enjoying a cozy cup this morning
That look when you feel the wind in your face, see the sky above you and the leaves below you. That look when you feel the rush and exhileration of flight, and that sensation where, just for a moment, you wonder if you might not come back down. Nothing like playing wild and free out in nature⠀ ⠀ #tinkergarten #letthembelittle #raiseawildchild #playmatters #playislearning #wildandfreechildren #getoutside #natureplayground #optoutdoors #childhoodunplugged #optoutside #getoutdoors #wildchild #vitaminn #kidsinnature #letkidsbekids #runwild #growingupoutdoors #magicofchildhood #kidsoutwild #runwildmychild #letthemexplore #raisinglittlewilds #weekschronicles
This boy loves his dog 😍 We rescued Abe from the Antietam Human Society back in April but it feels like he’s always been part of our family... It seems like Baby Q thinks that, too. It was love at first sight for these baby boys! . . . #documentyourdays #candidchildhood #momswithcameras #cameramama #cameramom #momtogs #teamcanon #canon5dmarkiii #shotwithlove #celebrate_childhood #igmotherhood #thefamilycollective #magicofchildhood #clickinmoms #lovewhatmatters #art_of_exposure #shared_joy #artofstorytelling_ig #p52clicks #aos_life #adoptdontshop #beagle #beaglesofinstagram #babyanddog

If I make it to be a great grandmother, I hope I can be this relaxed with four kids rolling out dough/sprinkling ALL the sprinkles/making ALL the messes 😳. Remaining calm in these kinds of situations isn’t my forte, but I guess when you’ve baked cookies with three generations, you realize what’s important. Love my Nana and I’m so grateful my kids get to enjoy her too! ❤️ . . . . . #childrenseemagic #magicofchildhood #candidchildhood #pixel_kids #thesincerestoryteller #themindfulapproach #thedocumentarymovement #thefamilynarrative #clickinmoms_holiday #documentaryphotography #ourlightwithin #galleryoflightfeature #instagrambham #bhamnow #hoto_19 #cameramama
I moved more than thirty times in my life, yet this time is the more beautiful & exhausting time ever ... 🤪moving with the two little ones with no help and doing lot of work by our own is truly challenging but THIS house is my dreamy house 🏡 and I wouldn’t have it any different ♥️. 📷 squeezing fresh picked oranges 🍊🍊🍊from our garden 🌿
“I must stop this Christmas from coming… but how?” —the Grinch . How is Christmas only ONE WEEK AWAY?!? Anyone else need more time? Just me?! Ok cool 😬
Coral had her winter performance with her school. She did wonderfully! 😍 I loved the songs they signed. • We told Coral we want to celebrate how amazing she handled the performance by going to Publix. She wanted cake and ice cream. She was so nervous and originally didn’t want to go up on the stage which we were fine with. She surprised us all by going up on the stage with her classmates. Ok, cake and ice cream it is! 🍰 🍦
Christmas Tree farms are definitely one of our favorite places to shoot! The greenery, the smell of all those pines, the togetherness and holiday feels, the sparkly bokeh .... It's all just amazing ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #beonewiththegirls#magic_marvels#ig_eternity#cpcfeature#beinstainspired#b1withteens#great_captures_children#insta_familyshots#art_of_exposure#magicofchildhood#cameramama#candidchildhood#pixel_kids#the_sugar_jar#childhoodwonders#talesofthemoment#storyofchildhood#documentyourdays#galleryoflightfeature#hellostoryteller#momswithcameras#storytellingmama#emotionalstorytelling#beyondthewanderlust#b1withfamily#thesincerestoryteller#savorlifeintensely#splendid_vibe#thefamilycollective#thebloomforum
Toddlers don’t care about a perfect gingerbread house. Toddlers care that your let them eat the gumdrops off the roof in the middle of making the gingerbread house. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During our trip to Galveston the three of us assembled and decorated a gingerbread house in the hotel. It started off a little rough at first (some crying was involved) but once Brent and I let go of our silly expectations that our gingerbread house should somehow resemble the one on the box and accepted that CJ’s idea of helping was licking the icing off the house, we were all more relaxed and happy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Years from now will we say, “remember that time we built the perfect gingerbread house?” No. But who says that? We will say, “remember that time we didn’t read the instructions and the entire roof of our gingerbread house fell off and CJ licked the icing off faster than we could put it back on? He was so happy”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The best memories are in the messy moments. 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #magicofchildhood #lifewithlittles #childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #candidchildhood #documentyourdays #gingerbreadhouse #tilinsiders #familyadventures #adventureswithkids #thatsdarling #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #storytellingmama #ig_motherhood ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #parenthoodmoments #motherhoodunplugged #simplychildren #christmas2018 #abmhappylife #theheartcaptured #momentsofmine #thepursuitofjoyproject #ourcandidlife #darlingmovement

"I'm in a Christmas tree!" His first ever baseball stadium experience was filled with millions of Christmas lights, but he's not complaining.
A lovely morning for some Christmas stories in a sleigh, by the tree. I'm so glad I can capture these moments so that over time when they seem so distant, I can bring myself right back! Our mornings are so special together. 🎄🎅🎄
This morning this little one woke up a 5 year old. She rolled over and whispered in my face with super stinky breath, “can I get up momma?” . Celebrating this ball of energy that still wakes with the best bed head! Has already lost one tooth! Loves to play with her brother and sister! Never met a baby she didn’t want to mother! 😂 A true artsy middle child! A girly girl at heart. She is definitely her own person and makes her own way! We love you Penny Peanut!
While my sister is focused on meeting Santa Claus 🎅🏻 I am fixated on the Christmas cookies 🍪 Happy Tongue Out Tuesday! 🎄🙌🏻😋 . . . #mysisterisareindeer#santashelper#holidaytongueout

It is unreal how big she is now{😭}, my heart!! I’m feeling extra grateful this morning by seeing my baby become this independent young girl, that loves to smile, dance & play. Thank you God for my healthy baby girl💗 #pajamaday
SANTA’S COMING!!! The countdown is on! The excitement is real!! I say it every year, but this Christmas might just be my favorite, the girls are so into the magic and it just makes it so much fun. #santaclausiscomingtotown #betsybrown
