Making summer memories one day at a time ☀️🌿 Some of my favorite memories growing up are from summertime. So I’m determined to make sure my little ones have fun memories that they will always remember.
Ellie made me run, jump, and dance with her through the water and I know this day will be one I always remember with her and I hope she will too 🌸
This summer we have been enjoying our @getsplashez pool. It hooks up right to a hose so no blowing up anything. The set up couldn’t be any more simple. Which is what I look for when I have two little ones 🌿

✨Do you DREAM about being a work from home mama?✨
I bet you think to yourself "I can't quit my job" "why would I start something that doesn't have reliable income" "what if I can't pay my bills" "would I have to constantly clean" "would I feel undermined" "what if I fuged it all up & failed" .. The answer to all of those is WHO CARES, YOU WONT KNOW UNTIL YOU TRY!! right!? .
I made a HUGE jump for my dreams, luckily I have an amazing & very supportive husband. I'm not ashamed to say we use the heck out of our resources!! we penny pinch, eat in more often, & buy less drinks at the store! But it's SO WORTH IT! .
Why? Let the picture speak for itself 😍
Wishing this beautiful girl a Very Happy First Birthday!
We love, love, love first birthday, cakesmash sessions! Watching this little one grow and learn this past year has been an honor and a joy! We love you bunches-n-bunches sweet McKenzie. Praying you are blessed with a fabulous day, celebrating ONE-derful you! #oneyearold#happybirthday

Marriage should be the biggest competition between you and your spouse of showing love and deference to the other. A sweet lady at Bible study said this this morning and I was so encouraged and convicted. In our culture so much is about me and what I want but God calls us to think of others as more important than ourselves. What a calling that is! I know I will never be able to fully follow that command, but by God’s grace I can continue to shift focus from myself to my husband, my kids, my family, and my friends. It is a difficult change, but one that is so rewarding!
Also, I should really clean that mirror more often! 😂

Our reviews speak for themselves:
“Finally a truly all natural diaper that doesn’t leak! Some of the other “natural” diapers on the market contain rayon and other toxic fabrics. I love that these are made with GMO-free cotton and are so soft. Love them. And best of all, they show up at my doorstep when i need them and I never have to worry about running out.” -Jeanna B

Hey daddy, I OWN you earthling. Thanks for being my throne. PS I’m a fond of the view up here... #3 😂 she didn’t like the grass, I swear
☕ Today has been stressful. I tried to make a coffee this morning, and the kettle refused to work, so I was just about devastated. Then I realised my washer wasnt working, or my oven, or anything else for that matter. The electrics had completely went, nothing had tripped in the fuse box and nobody could come out until tomorrow morning. Although secretly pleased I didnt have to do the dishes, it also meant we had no boiler for hot water too. After pretty much begging the property company they finally sent someone and sorted it out for us and I was free to make a coffee again 😂 how does one survive without caffeine?!
•On another note, how beautiful is this rose bush? We walk past it every single day and she always wants to sniff it for half an hour 😍

These two are always such a joy to photograph! Love them so much!
SELF LOVE// this is something we all struggle with I’m sure& all in different ways. I realized last week this is the longest I haven’t been pregnant, nursing or had a new born in almost 8 years. Getting to know your body again once you’ve reclaimed it is HARD guys. Nothing is the same, everything has a bit for give& fluffiness, my hips will never never be as narrow as they once were and my 🍈🍈 are basically deflated😜 it’s so easy to pick apart everything we hate in pictures of ourselves, but instead I’m challenging you to list 2 things you love about yourself instead! I’ll start: my body created the four most important people in my life, my arms are more toned because they always want uppie🤪 YOUR TURN to tell me what you love about yourself💛💛
My favorite blue eyed, blonde siblings of all time! If you are wondering what an amazingly loving,badass, fun mom looks like - she's in one of these photos and Im OBSESSED with how these turned out! ***Clients please feel free to share this photo! Please do not crop

The sunflowers didn’t last long this year and sadly I had to cancel some sessions 😭Good news though, I found some others that bloom in October! If you’d be interested in one of these sessions, message me! 🌻

"Wszystko fajnie, Mamo, ale raczej już mnie postaw, wiesz?" 🙈
Na endlich, der Lernturm für mein Kletteräffchen ist fertig geworden - zusammen mit @zweihandvollglueck wurde dieses „Mal-eben-Projekt“ trotz anwesender Minimenschen verwirklicht, die sich plötzlich nicht mehr als 10cm von der jeweiligen Mama entfernen wollten, von der nassen Farbe wie Motten vom Licht angezogen wurden und natürlich die Schere vieeel spannender fanden als alle tollen Spielzeuge im Garten 🙈 #flohzirkus
Um so stolzer waren wir, als wir endlich unsere Meisterwerke vollbracht hatten 😁 #mamacandothis
Und die Mäuse waren sofort Feuer und Flamme und genossen die Aussicht - so 5 Minuten, der längere Begeisterungsfaktor muss noch in längeren Studien getestet werden... So, noch vier DIY Projekte in der Warteschleife, läuft doch 😅
YAY. so happy this little one is finally sprouting another tooth! It’s been MONTHS since he had a new pearly white. And I can’t wait for all the teeth to be in and done and dusted. Bring on tooth number 7! Anyone else’s kids took long to teeth? 🦷🦷🦷????

The family and I had some fun yesterday doing some DIYs. I posted up on the blog. But just so you know, simple crafts are never a quick little blurp like they show on TV, lol, it’s an all day thing over here! And a complete bomb of a mess afterwards! 😂
How early do you start planning your parties? This little girl doesn’t turn 1 for another three months but the party planning has already started 😍🥰😍🥰
Her birthday is in October, any guesses as to the theme?!
This boy challenges me in ways Finn never did. I tend to complain about it more than I’d like to admit 😬 I have to frequently remind myself that each child comes down with their own unique spirit and to embrace his. I’m working every day at accepting that he is NOT the same baby Finn was (as bad as that sounds) but that he has his own adorable attributes & positive qualities. His scream may make me want to scratch out my eyeballs, but this kid is also FUNNY. And independent. And tough. And oh so squishy. Even after the toughest of days, I just love my little Dukey Bear 🐻
Hey, I hope everyone’s summer is off to good start! Here is a little DIY I did with the family yesterday! All on the blog ✨

We have been dealing with serious separation anxiety since I had hand surgery almost 6 weeks ago. I don’t think any of the others did this, and if they did it definitely wasn’t for a long period of time. She tells me she wants to go places and when we get there she watches me like a hawk to make sure I don’t leave her. This too shall pass?! 😬 #spencerbleu
Мишки в сосновом бору 🐻😍🐻 Вот в такой чудесной компании я провела свой профессиональный праздник, по-моему лучше не придумаешь☺️ и настолько мне понравилось, что и сейчас с лечу на встречу с ними☺️ Если хочешь присоединиться к нам то у вас есть возможность 28 июля и 4 августа
P.S. А мне вот интересно вы меня воспринимаете только как фотографа снимающего детей с животными?

El otro día leí este fragmento y se me erizó la piel con la primera frase. “Te deseo que te animes a mirarte y que te ames como eres. Que tengas el suficiente amor propio para pelear muchas batallas, y la humildad para saber que hay batallas imposibles de ganar por las que no vale la pena luchar. Te deseo que puedas aceptar que hay realidades que son inmodificables, y que hay otras, que si te mueves del lugar de la queja, puedes cambiar. Que no te permitas los “no puedo” y que reconozcas los “no quiero”. Te deseo que escuches tu verdad, y que la digas, con plena conciencia de que es sólo tu verdad, no la del otro. Que te expongas a lo que temes, porque es la única manera de vencer el miedo. Que aprendas a tolerar las “manchas negras” del otro, porque tú también tienes las tuyas, y eso anula la posibilidad de reclamo. Que no te condenes por equivocarte; no eres todopoderoso. Que crezcas, hasta donde y cuando quieras(...) Te deseo que logres ser feliz, sea cual sea la realidad que te toque vivir. “

Everyday in every way! Be the one who steps forward the one who gives a friendly smile! The one who lends an ear and always asks “are you ok?"
When I read this little lady’s school report I cried, a lump was in my throat and I felt pure pride 🥰 You see to me it’s always been about raising good humans. It would seem so far I’ve got it right ❤️ Layla you are everything we have always known you could be, keep shining bright 🌟

How to avoid power struggles with your 3nager.
Baby A is at an age where he sometimes tries to test his limits & boundaries. He is a typical 3nager with occasional temper tantrums. Sometimes power struggles happen with us asking him to do something or rather asking him not to do something & him totally ignoring our words.
Well, it’s easy to loose your temper on such occasions & get frustrated. But that won’t help & infact frustrate your child too.
Kids at this age rarely want to do stuff you ask them to do. They also love to dawdle, drag their feet, be lazy when you want them to hurry and run like a 🌪 when you want them to sit down.
You see they are testing the limits & your authority too. Getting angry will only make it worse. It helps to play around this. .
Reading sundry parenting articles & my own experience has taught me a few tricks.
Eg. after we reached home, It used to be a struggle to get him out of the car & Make him walk till the elevator lobby. He would dawdle, sit, jump around, get stuck in his seat while I waited outside with the bags hanging on me begging him to move. But I learnt a way around this. Now the moment I stop my car, I hand him the access card & tell him, Baby you need to help mama & open the lobby door. Trust me it works like a charm. Kids love to play the hero. He totally obliges, gets out of the car without fuss & walks calmly with his hand in my hand towards the lobby. Then uses the access card & holds the door open 😃.
Same trick works in the elevator. Earlier he would drag his feet to get inside, but tell him he needs to help with the lift. He is inside in a flash! (They love elevator buttons btw.)
Same applies with cleaning up mess. As a 1-2 year old, he used to love cleaning up. Every night he helped me put all his toys; each in its own place. But this has changed now. 3 year olds are Slobs! So now I tell him I need your help as you are the super hero who can help mama complete this real fast. And lo, my super hero is ready to the rescue.
So handling power struggles is easier if you let them be in control. Treat them like adults & give them authority. Tell me how you deal with it with your toddlers?
Y’all, it’s almost boot season, or in our case you embrace the 100° heat index and go riding. Just maybe a breeze will blow in and make Fall seem that much closer, saddle on up cause girl your in for a ride.
Yesterday, was magical, both girls rode horses for the first time and fell in love with these beautiful animals we call horses. Do I see a future in equestrian, maybe? They were naturals, but most of all my littlest was so so gentle. While riding she kept encouraging the horse to “be happy in the heat,” and saying “your sweet as sugar,” while petting her mane. She stole the show when she got off the horse “I do it all by MYSELF!” then walked over kissed it on the head and would not leave its side, she left in tears.
Charlotte on the other hand, would not stop smiling, it was painted across her face. Melted my heart to see her so so happy; she conquered a fear of wearing the helmet (daddy once clipped her skin while buckling her bike helmet and that did it for her) and could have rode this horse all day! She must have thanked me 1000x after for taking them riding.
Gallop, @shrimpandgritskids Fall Collection releases tomorrow 7/18, neeeiiighhh, can I get a yeee-haw?

At what age did you stop seeing failure as an adventure?
I think I started feeling ashamed of my failures around kindergarten. That’s when I really started to feel the push to “be like the other kids”. Suddenly, what made me different made me weird. And what used to be a fun game of figuring things out became this terrifying, shame-filled experience of “What if I get it wrong?” I love watching Sam play because I can see how he tries new angles and new ideas with no reserve. Sometimes he gets frustrated and bothered, but it never lasts more than a minute or two before he’s approaching the challenge with new insight.
It had me thinking about how I approach challenges. To be honest, there’s times I just don’t. The idea of falling flat on my face is an option I don’t even want to think about.
Do you know what I mean?
Like the worst thing ever is that I fail. That feeling.
Realistically, the worst thing ever is never failing at all. Because, let’s be real, if you’re not failing, then that means you’re not moving forward. You’re not trying new things. You’re perpetually in your comfort zone.
Failing doesn’t mean you’re a shameful loser that should be tucked away from the joys of life. It just means you tried, it didn’t work, time for a new angle.
You’ll get there. Maybe with a few scratches and a lot of lessons learned, but it feels so much better “getting there” knowing that you fought and were brave and kept going even when you wanted to stop.
But you can’t do it without embracing the game of failure.
Who else struggles with allowing themselves to fail? Don’t leave this perfectionist hangin’ 🙏🏻😩👇🏻
We take so many pictures these days, but in my experience as a mama there are a handful that capture everything about my child. In a single image. Their spirit, their song. I love spending time with your little people and creating images that tell their story. Who’s next?
