Motherhood: Not all days are good days.

Motherhood: Not all days are good days.

It’s not always rainbows and lollipops.

I am here to validate that motherhood isn't always easy. Some days suck and are rough, and you have yelled more than you want or cried more than you want, but tomorrow is another day.

It is more often than not my three year old will try to make it to the backyard. It is summertime, and Bug would almost always rather be outside. Even in the sweltering heat.

Talk soon,

If you are wondering what Documentary Family Photography is, here is my spin on it.

Why is your son crying hysterically you ask?

Because I wouldn't let him watch TV in the bathtub. #worstmomever

My mom always told me to find the humor in motherhood or else you will go crazy. Boy was she right! The raw honest emotion flowing from him was too much. I had to capture it. It is hard to see your child this upset, but the reason why was just too golden.

Life has been moving fast. How has my baby grown so much in what feels like a blink of an eye? While Bug is doing circles around us while it happens. Both boys are coming into themselves. I can't wait to see what sort of human Bean becomes.

Talk soon,

This beautiful, tenacious infuriating sweet love-able boy. I won't pretend I haven't been struggling. Motherhood is messy sometimes; it is hard and beautiful and challenging and heartbreaking. I was so glad to hear that my girlfriend had a similar experience with her little one. I cried with relief.

Those beautiful brown eyes.

We have to share our stories, mamas. Building our tribe around one another and supporting each other is so important.
