I don’t think surviving unscathed is a sign of strength. Like the crashing sea smooths the stone, the difficulties in life strive to make us soft and strip us of who we are. No, our damage is evidence we stood against the tide, and found the courage and resilience to go on living. -Beau Taplin
Okay so day ✌️of sick kids! Now it’s Brayden turn to be sick!! . . Do you know how frowned upon it is to call in sick ✌️ days in a row as a hygienist?? Especially when it’s not for you?? . . I used to be sick to my stomach trying to figure out what I was supposed to do when my kids got sick! 🤷‍♀️ daycare wouldn’t take them! And todd can’t take off work when he is the broker running his own company with employees under him! . . So I always felt so trapped! 😫My kids needed me but I knew work needed me too but I had no one to watch them!! . . I am so stinking grateful I work from home on my 📱 💻 now!! . . Cause now I don’t have to call in sick! I don’t have to ask permission to be home with my kids when they need me!🙌 I don’t have to stress and worry if I’m going to get fired! . . Cause as an entrepreneur- I’m my own boss! And honestly as an introvert there is no where else I would rather be than 🏡 !! . . Curious if you could do it too? You can! Get paid to take care of yourself with at home workouts and share your journey to help other mommas do the same! Drop a ❤️ and I can give ya all the details!! . . . . . #dreamjobbing #liveyourdreamlife #makeyourownlife #livelifebydesign #liveyourbestlifenow #mompreneaur #goalsettergoalgetter #momclub #momofboth #sahmstyle #momhustler #theeverymom #30somethings #mynameismommy #ohheymomma #mommingsohard #inbeautyinchaos #hygienists #realmotherhoodseries #thehappynowproject #beautyinthestruggle #findingmypurpose #findingmypassion #nohood
I am always amazed at Courtney’s creativity. Her photos are magical and her use of light is always breathtaking. I don’t really feel like this week’s photo even does hers justice, but it was fun giving it a try. Thank you Courtney for always being a source of inspiration! 💗 Swipe to see Courtney’s original pic! We are inspired daily by the amazing artists in this community. Time and time again our minds are blown away by the creativity, magic, and raw talent these artists constantly share. Welcome to the #youinspiremeloop - a group of fellow photogs recreating images that have inspired us by our fellow artists. . . This week we are inspired by @courtneyathome . .

This picture means so much to me. Tyler hasn’t seen his grandpa in almost two years and now he is finally here. It’s the first time he comes to visit without my mom, but I know she is here with us ❤️
I’m one of the few mums who stays to watch the whole ballet class (behind the one-way glass). I’ve been trying to decide if this makes me a total helicopter dance mum and I suspect perhaps it does - the more sensible of us would use the time to Get Useful Things Done (or just have a well deserved solitary cup of coffee). Often I mean to do the same, but I can’t seem to tear myself away. I can’t take my eyes off her when she’s dancing; it fills me all the way up from the bottom of my boots to the top of my head - to see her joy in it is everything I could ever wish for her. It’s what innocence looks like. And I want to watch it always. • #wildandfreekids #wildandbarefoot #runwildmychild #realmotherhoodseries #motherhoodunplugged #clickinmoms #freespiritedchildhood #loveandlightgallery #embracingtheedge #theeverydayportrait_ #parentinginthewild #honestlyparents #illuminatedchildhood #littlepiecesofchildhood #illuminatedchildhood #littledancer
It was a regular Sunday night, my husband was on a work call and I was getting her ready for the bed. Earlier in the day we had got logs for fire, but couldn't squeeze in our campfire in between the dinner, dishes, night time chores and his call. Then suddenly he came, and suggested we should still do the campfire. It was already 7:45, my first instinct was to say no, she had to sleep as she had school the next day... But I gave in... And I am so glad I did! Her face says it all 🥰😍 . . . . #moodandcharacter #talesofthemoment #Littleadventures_BigPictures #realmotherhoodseries #our_everyday_moments #themindfulapproach #macro_moms #lightyourjoy #thesincerestoryteller #deeplyauthentic #dearestviewfinder  #lookslikefilmkids #shotwithmoxie #galleryoflightfeature  #exploringcreativephotography #sharesix_ . #thebeautifulreal #colorchasechallenge #RunWildMyChild #hellostoryteller #bokeh_is_life #hiyapapayaphotoaday #documentyourmemories_  #wildandbravelittles #theilluminatedartist #strivetobeanartist #chasing_light_photohub #storyofchildhood
I mean, just look at this darling girl. The baby of the family 💗 {swipe for more}
She just kills me. . On a different note, I am working on breaking free from some of the bad habits that were established during my months of first trimester sickness. I am specifically working on creating rythyms/routines: daily, weekly, seasonal. Obviously, these are not to be rigid about, but to establish good habits/patterns/and order, which I believe in turn creates peace and comfort in a home. So, do any of you have any routines like this you want to share with me to help me in crafting mine?
Never lose the kid in your heart! ❤️
I needed to make this wedding dress project to breathe a little easier, I think. - Watch this short compilation through the link in my profile.

1, 2, 3, 4, I declare a tickle war! . This gorgeous family kicked off the limited sessions last weekend, and I couldn’t have asked for a better family to start with. There are only a couple of spots remaining for this weekend, but I did add one last date for 27 October! This will be the last chance to get family pictures with me before I go out of the country next month and possibly the last chance to get your images before the holidays, so make sure you secure your spot! Link to book is in my profile.
I am so behind on this, but this fella is now 4 months old & I am a wreck. why is he growing so quickly?! 😭😭😭 #12monthsofrhenn
Love and laughter ❤️
This is Tanna. She is our good girl and I love her to pieces.
Her two favorite things, bikes and pink. L E N N O X

Lunches and dinners are almost always spent around the table, together. Breakfast, on the other hand, in this house, anyway, was made for pajamas, couches, and apparently dinosaurs! If you like dry cereal and Paw Patrol, then come on over. 😄 #whateveryoudodontliftthecouchcushions #andbringcoffee
"Ok Jess...I cried. The slideshow was beautiful ❤️❤️ Do many fantastic shots!! I'm like actually dying lol. So Good.

I found the company that makes these necklaces a few months ago. It was one of those things I had on my bucket list to get once we had all our babies. After everything with Percy, I yearned for ways to feel closer to him and to, especially, feel him and Harlan together. At times, I find myself holding it and thinking of the moments that will never be, but mostly, I think about the few wonderful moments that were. My two boys, together. . . . . I am so excited to be participating in a weekly theme loop, #shooting_fromtheheart . This loop is filled with an awesome group of photographers and we're challenging ourselves with weekly themes. This week’s theme is Connection (#Shooting_fromtheheart_connection ). Next week our theme will be "Trees". We would love to have you follow along, participate with us, and tag your photos as well. Next in the loop is the talented @that_mama_gracy ! . . . #thesincerestoryteller #cameramama #cm_fall #the_camera_clique #ccc_orange #beunraveled #dearphotographer #mom_hub1122 #hellostoryteller #beinstainspired #thehonestcapture #themindfulapproach #remarkablyimagined #journey_into_photography #art_of_exposure #talesofthemoment #follow_this_light #memoirsofmotherhood #realmotherhoodseries #documentyourmemories_ #theeverydayportrait #dearestviewfinder

Seriously mom.... I've been so insanely busy with life and sweet nutmeg and kids and shows and pregnancy that I shamefully realized I hadn't touched my camera in a week 😶 So Gav and I went to the french bakery for goodies then stashed them in the cupboard and went for a walk in our woods. Never have I gotten so many eyerolls or been thrown so much shade in my life. I think he's on to me... And just really really wanted his macarons 🙄 #photographerschild

Kids do silly things 😜
This spicy little thing!
Wish I could sleep like this right now...😴
Sandal season! Who is keen! I am so obsessed with this I upsized at the end of last season, you will find them at @anchorandfox if you love them as much as I do. . I am always looking for new brands to love, feel free to comment or dm me with your favourite brand!
Those little eyes looking up at mama 💔😭
OH. My heart.
A beaut Sunday morning spent with the best lil family 💖
Just one more, because I like to do things in threes (and babies’ heads are delicious) • And while I’m here, I’d love to know - I’ve gotten into a bit of a habit of splitting my images into grids every so often. Do you find them imposing and annoying on your feed? Or do the details make you want to click through to see more? ♥️

Third trimester summertime naps
Breakfast at McComb Boulevard. 🍳 • I’m hyper aware of how quickly these moments slip by at the moment; every morning, Ilias wakes with a seemingly completely different level of awareness. It’s not just the new words and expressions that get me, it’s the change in his whole energy, like someone ran around overnight and just switched on a whole bunch of lights. • I keep finding myself frantically scribbling notes, like how he pronounces apple (ap——paaaaaal) and trying desperately to etch these outrageously adorable details into my memory. • The light only flickered like this for a second before the whole room pooled with sunshine. I’m so glad I’m able to catalogue these quiet little moments - but oh, how many of them I’ll only get to enjoy fleetingly.
