A Day in the Life of a Boy Mom – Wisconsin Family Photographer

I’ve taken a little break from working and blogging to regroup and start up some new projects, and mom the heck out of this winter. With both of my girls in school full days I’m a ‘boy mom’ full time at home. Christmas was so great this year and we had a streak of asthma at it’s worst but, this day to day life with my boys is pretty darn good.

I’ve learned so much from my boys, they fill our home with such a different energy than when the girls were home at the same ages. Being a boy mom is not for the faint of heart. I love watching my boys form such an crazy brother bond together during this time but also they get sooooo excited when their sisters come home. When the crew is together life is never boring and it is always filled up to the brim.

My man Gus… wow, is he stubborn but then so sweet too. Nothing with him is fake or forced. He has the best and most contagious laughter of anyone I’ve ever met. He is also my particular one… if you mess with something he has ordered God save you, and more importantly God save his little brother who wants nothing more than to touch all is treasure.

Sam at almost 20 months is starting to find his way in the wild pack. His opinions are always heard. Gosh is our house loud! He is a thinker and a planner always watching the big kids, always learning. He loves playing in the girls room when they are away and wants so bad to be with Gus always, even when he punches him…

Here is a taste of my life at home with my wild boys. Never boring or the same.

As a full-time photographer and mom I struggle with photographing my own children with a full list of edits for my clients already on my to-do list.  But my memories are important and my children deserve photos of their everyday too!  I’ve been very intentional about keeping my old camera charged and at the ready in our main living area. It makes grabbing it quick for a photo so much easier than going to my work closet and opening up all my gear and getting a camera to take an at home photo.

Parents, get your camera charged and leave it out… don’t let your images die on your phone memory card!
