She is well taken care of by each and every one of her doting siblings. I love seeing the interaction and affection between big families!

Feeling at home takes work. It takes time. And it takes trust. It didn’t take long for my heart to feel settled in amongst nature. Basically everywhere outside of our four walls. It’s felt familiar, welcoming and calm right from the beginning. Behind the doors, on the other side of the windows it’s taken me longer. There’s been a shedding of other, as we’ve painted colours we connect to, slowly adding bits of us. Cleaning, cleansing. Making memories and spending time. It’s been almost six weeks and it’s starting. That rested feeling. When you can exhale into safety. And breathing through each moment takes less. Less what, I’m not sure. Just less. The tightness in your chest loosens. And the trust, it’s grows too. 12/365 #herwildandpreciouslife #herwildandpreciouslifecl

Anyone else not ready for Christmas?!? 🎄 I have to say that this is the first time in a very long time that I’m actually panicking about being ready!  I’m usually wrapped and ready to go before December even hits!  I LOVE Christmas and start counting the days in July (I’d even put up my tree then if my husband would let me!) But this year I am struggling...might be these 4 little boys tearing up the house all day, or the 3 older kids pulling us in every direction at night...but I haven’t wrapped a single present 😲! At least I get to stare at these pretties!  Aren’t they absolutely beautiful ❤️

The square crop kind of takes away from the beauty of this image. So, I’m going to post it to my photog page, too, just so you can see the full size. 👉@sterling.imagery

The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. 
The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper's nest. 
They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the Earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
Isaiah 12:6-9

How do you take care of yourself in the juggle?
💫

Self care has been on my mind a lot recently. 
I find it really hard to carve out time to take care of myself when there are so many other things that need to come first. 
And from the conversations I have with many other women, the struggle seems pretty much universal.
💫

But I’m beginning to realise that it’s not sustainable to carry on like that. So, inspired by an episode of “Letters from a hopeful creative” with @jencarrington_ and @me_and_orla I have been trying a simpler and more manageable approach to my own self care. 
I’ve written about it on my blog, I’d love you to take a look. 
Do you have any simple self care tips to share?💫 I’ll be sharing some behind the scenes from making this selfie in my stories soon!

Mornings with them are just what I need to recharge and get back on track. Sometimes I get stuck in the wrong frame of mind. The wishing game begins and the comparison starts to set in. I wish I lived in a nicer home (not a duplex), I wish I had nicer things, I wish I lived in a different state for grander adventures. I have to stop myself and refocus on what matters. These boys. These boys are what matters. They don’t care about nice things or what state we live in. They only care about each other, mama and daddy, family. So this week I’m focusing more on togetherness. And Christmas seems the perfect season to focus on that anyways. We’ll be putting the star on our tree, baking Christmas cookies, and cozying up to some favorite holiday movies. What are some Christmas traditions you and your family like to promote togetherness?! I’d love to hear all about them and maybe add them to our Christmas traditions!

The festival of light! It is definitely a wonderous & magical thing!! Hope everyone enjoyed their hannukah celebrations this year! The girls learned and sang the hannukah prayer each night (clearly mesmerized by the beautiful light of the flickering candles) and we hosted our annual hannukah party filled with homemade potato kanishes, kugel, potato latkes, menorah sugar cookies, tritip, and an awesome bonfire. It's was pure magic!

Sending out Christmas cards (and receiving them) is one of my favorite traditions during the holiday season. We love filling up our fridge with photos of family and friends, and it feels like receiving a gift in the mail every time a card comes. Swipe to see the photos we've used in the past two years of marriage - 2017, 20 weeks pregnant with Georgia, and 2016 newly married. (I used a photo from our engagement session ♥️)

What happens when I ask for a picture of them together 😆.
.
Sometimes I wonder if I’m doing right be these 3.  They’re all so close in age.  They need so much of me individually and because of the close age range there are fights and power struggles between the 3.
.
If someone is upset or gets in trouble - they are the first to comfort one another.  It never fails, if E is crying, one or both of the boys are often the first to get to her. If E sees one of her brothers upset, she’ll waddle her way over, put her hand on their arm, and hug them.
.
Those kind of moments remind me that I am doing something right.  These 3 are growing to be close.  That they love one another so fiercely and can rely on one another.  I’m hoping this is something they’ll continually do as they grow up.  You bet, I’m going to encourage it too!

Hand to heart, this season has surprised me with clients who are such a good fit with my philosophy and approach.  Clients who are responding to the emotional core of what they see.  This 3 generational family from Perth invited me to spend a morning with them on their first trip together to Singapore.  I might have shown them around a building or two, but they showed me much more through their genuine kindness.

“Friends, I hope you know it’s ok if your strength looks a little different in this season.
I hope you know that the fire inside of you is still there. Even if it burns quietly and gently, as candles do on windowsills.
I hope you know it’s ok to not feel the same as everyone else.
I hope you know that even in the rush of it all, there is time and grace to heal.
There is time to take your time, seeking peace and quiet beyond your understanding. Even if you feel you have a long way to go.
Breath after breath, depth into depth, the steps you take not only matter but they reveal the quiet strength that has been in you all along - and has been growing ever since.
I hope you know how perfectly and wonderfully you are made and the fact that you are YOU is a magnificent gift in itself” ~Extract from a quote by Morgan Harper Nichols~

Happy Tuesday lovely Insta peeps. Be blessed today 🧡🎄🧡

Transparency...I’ve literally unravelled the past couple of weeks. With selling our house & open inspections the last couple of months, my heaviest workload to date, moving house, overdoing it and hurting my back and a husband who is struggling with the heat and due for his 6mthly meds and really struggling, IM SPENT!!!! I’ve been angry, emotional and highly anxious. After my back not bouncing back quickly enough I came to the realisation that I’m going to need help for this upcoming wedding or not photograph it at all. I’m devastated. My bride and groom were amazing when I gave them the news and for that Im thankful I have surrounded myself with such beautiful people. 
It also meant I had to put my big girl pants on and ask for help. I approached the lovely Dana from @_willandco_ and she didn’t even hesitate to come and help me. 
I’m without words. Running a business is hard, doing it alone is hard. This makes me feel a whole lot less alone and that I have people in my corner. 
This means the most to me, to be able to deliver for my clients and also take care of myself.
Forever the juggle, work v life balance...2018 you have really stuck the boot in.

It’s been weeks since I’ve done a self portrait. In fact the last time I posted one I said I was getting back into it again so no more lies to myself, I can only do so much in one day and at the moment there is way too much going on. But here is me, I think I’m up to week 32 of my self portrait challenge and have no idea what the prompt was for that week but a photo with my boys is better than no photo with my boys. As you can see it was a grab them and click kinda moment and the focus isn’t great but hey it’s something. Still thinking of all my lovely cyber IG friends out there, I’ll be back in action real soon 😘.

The original Bless Bear, the old girl who started it all.

Our week visiting family in Oregon is well underway. We have spotted many deer, collected pinecones, passed fields of cows too numerous to count, and eaten very well. The temperature continues to drop and rain keeps us company most days.

The best part of it all is Nana Bin, that sweet and generous woman who raised me and continues to raise me up in new ways all the time. She feeds me, puts my kid to bed and wakes up early with him, and is happy to join us in whatever activity catches our fancy, all while working full time during the daylight hours. This means she wakes up when it's dark out and returns home in the dark. And yet her heart shines.

Nana Bin is good and strong, just how I wanted Bless Bear to be, and just how I want me to be too!

I shared this on my stories and just had to share here too because I love it so much. And yes, how bizarre that this feed has gone from being wedding photography focused when I started it in the Seychelles in 2015, then to families back in Dubai then more recently it’s been pretty much all my story. And now these guys too. If it’s one thing that’s certain in life and that is ‘change is inevitable’ alongside growth, evolution and path finding. However whatever the subject I’ve always always, from the very beginning, been about telling stories. Sometimes it’s your story and right now it’s mine. When asked what kind of photography I do I often stumble. It sounds a bit funny to say but if ‘story telling with light’ is a thing, then that’s my thing. And these guys, well I just love this boy band pose living in our paddocks.

I saw you born, heard your first cries and I'm so lucky to have your family by my side raising all our boys up for Jesus. .

Raise your hand if you believe modern family photography doesn’t have to be looking and smiling?⠀
•⠀
It’s evolving into more than that and I’m so grateful for mamas that allow me freedom to play. I’ve been intentionally trying to spend some time looking for those magical streaks of light in the home, such as this.

This too, is the story of family.

Somewhat inadvertently I’ve fallen into an Instagram hiatus. Life has been happening and this was one of the things that fell off. Keeping up with four boys is no joke! I am grateful though. Some of the days are long but the time is short. In two weeks we’ll have a four month old on our hands. Didn’t he just arrive like 10 minutes ago? Along with the day-to-day with my crew, I’m thankful for the last few sessions of the year and for beautiful families like this one. You couldn’t tell by this image but it was a cold, cold afternoon and these four were absolute champs! This is one of my favorites from the session. Sweetest brothers! .

These busy toddler days can sometimes feel really, really long but I also know how precious and amazing they are, and how quickly they disappear. I’m enjoying and preserving every moment I can. 11/365 #herwildandpreciouslife #herwildandpreciouslifecl

Doesn’t the first year of your baby’s life fly by? 
I remember when I was in it, being afraid, a little over protective, worried, and exhausted. 
Now, I drop my kids off at the drop off line at school, kisses in the car, and a wave good bye. 
What I wouldn’t give to have them this small again for just a day. •

This photo session meant the world to me. I have never worked with special needs children, and Camden’s mom specifically sought me out based on my philosophy of capturing more of the in between moments- as Camden has a hard time sitting still. Camden and his brother were a dream and this session is one that will tug at my heartstrings for years ❤️

But I don't want "good" and I don't want "good enough". I want "can't sleep, can't breathe without your love", front porch and one more kiss, it doesn't make sense to anybody else, who cares if you're all I think about, I’ve searched the world and I know now. .

Honestly this is the only corner of our dining room that is really presentable.. but that's ok. We're working on it. 😉 I never understood how people's homes are put together and beautiful all at once, everywhere. Or at least, it seems like that sometimes. For us, it has taken time, money, and inspiration throughout the three years we've been together. And it is a constant effort. But I like that, because it makes each space feel more intentional. •

we’re 58 days away from celebrating Oz’s day of birth. I was asked to share our birth story at a home birth info night next week, and as I gather my thoughts I honestly can’t believe we’re nearing a year of spending every moment snuggling and learning from this amazing boy. lucky, lucky, lucky ✨ also, all the mamas are with me on the emotions surrounding first birthdays, right? Like 💔😭💔😭💔😭💔

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
Romans 5:3-5

i stopped playing the lotto bc i already won with this guy right here.🥰
• • •
i’m so happy i decided to send that @facebook message 9 years ago 😂📲
• • •
in doing so it lead us to daily messages, then to the daily texts, to the good morning phone calls (even tho i hate talking on the phone)😏, which led us to me hopping on a plane for a weekend visit, ✈️ to then a week visit the next month for his birthday 🎂 where he introduced me to the best sushi 🍣 ever and my very first root beer float😬, then FINALLY we just packed my shit one night and he helped me drive across the entire country so we could be together. 🚙 🛣
• • •
driving from NC ▶️ WA in the dead of winter was quite the adventure but that was only the beginning.

no adventure will ever compare to the one we get to do every single day called parenthood. 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦👧🏻

i wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else except you babe! @mr_mcmurder
