diary of a Mama: around the home

 In this photographic series “diary of a mama” I want to simply share inspiration and captures from my days with my children. Honouring the sacred work of homemaking and child caring. You’ve all heard the saying, “a picture speaks a thousand words”. My intention is for these images to fill your soul with nourishment and a deep knowing that the work you do in your home + raising your children is sacred.

    Your photos are always so beautiful Natalie. All of that food looks delicious and your spot by the sea looks like a lovely spot to relax and celebrate with friends. Your little girl is so very cute, those little investigating:) xx

    How exciting to see your little girl making a little faerie garden with an Elfin Trail Faerie Garden Kit. I hope it's bringing lots of joy, and faeries.

    Glorious photos! I bet that chicken was delicious! I made your beef bone broth yesterday (with lots of added celery). It's waiting in the fridge next to a piece of defrosting beef ready to be turned into a hearty soupy stew (or stewy soup, I'm not sure yet). x
