A Day In The Life {A Family Film About Real Life | Family photographer | Brandon, FL}

Mom Life

Sometimes we get so busy being a parent we forget how beautiful being a mom is, how beautiful our life really is. We think it's boring, not exciting enough for someone to photograph it. So many people ask, what do we do and I when I say just be you, they look at me like I have 3 heads. 

I get it, I understand the feeling that things have to be extraordinary to be worthy of a photograph. That we think we have to show our best faces to the world, don't show the dirt or the "normal" things, clean before company comes over, hide all the "stuff" in the closet. 

You don't know me from Steve, but trust me, our lives are perfect just the way they are. Our life is our own and there is beauty in that, beauty in that simplicity.

Just being in our life is enough. 

These images represent how gorgeous our everyday life really is! That our kids make messes and do their own laundry (well some of our kids do). That life is dirty and fun and boring but that is ok! That not every day is extraordinary but it's our every day that makes up our life! The day in and day out grind that makes the days turn into years. 

This is the life of a mom. A mom doing her best to make life work while her husband is deployed. To get her kids to school on time, to make sure they have healthy choices on the table, to order pizza on the days that just need to be simpler. To be the only rock until the time when she has her own rock to lean on. To just make things work and do and be. 

This is a family just being a family. With fights and giggles, hard work and quiet moments. It's siblings stepping in to help, sometimes with a smile and sometimes not.

This is life. Real Life. Normal Life. 

This beautiful.

This is what Sunday mornings look like. Breakfast, slowly waking up, morning coffee. 

This is what happens when your mom isn't looking, when you start to giggle with your siblings, when you start to show off as a kid to a stranger.

This is life with older children and a breastfeeding child.

The demands of a teenager and toddler, both depriving you of sleep and groceries, both creating grief and joy in your life, sometimes in the same moments.

This is what life is like when your husband is deployed.
