What Ava really thought about her half birthday photoshoot

Jan 9, 2018
Just a Mamma DIY 6 month photoshoot

On Saturday Ava turned 6 months, yes a half year! And like “good parents” we knew we had to mark the occasion with a memorable half birthday photoshoot. It’s a little tradition that in the past have always involved food seeing as 6 months was the time we introduced solids to Eliana and Lia. Ava has however happily been enjoying food for a month but we like the tradition and thought a watermelon cake would be clever. I had it…

Just a Mamma Turning 3 all about me cover

3 It’s always been a favourite of mine… 13 Feb 2003 – the day I met Mr. Perfect, October 3rd – our wedding anniversary, also the amount of little ladies we currently have and 3, the age of our middle little. Isn’t 3 just the cutest? We’re past the hard work of those 1st few years and everyone survived the “terrible twos”… no more bottles, diapers, no trying to decipher the wants and needs of a 3 foot dictator. Yes, 3…

Today our Ava is two months old. I celebrate by sharing her birth story. It took me a while to post because finding words to describe the emotions and experience of that day is impossible, but I’ll try my best. So here goes… Being my 3rd Caesarean section you’d think I’d be calm, knowing what to expect and ready for the day. This however was not the case. I felt more nervous and anxious than ever before. The knowledge of…

From styling my bump, sharing pregnancy and baby must-haves and more, my favourite collaboration has to be our maternity photoshoot! In the past we’ve always made a big fuss when…

Milk bath Maternity Photoshoot: A Cleopatra moment.

Aug 1, 2017
JAM Milk bath 7

Pregnancy circa 2016 / 2017 and Milk Bath Maternity Shoots are all the rage. I completely get the appeal… Unleashing your inner Cleopatra in a time when you are creating life; why not? At 1st I was on the fence; not sure if I should take the milky plunge but then I came across the most beautiful purple roses and I simply couldn’t resist. The purple had me and although I never liked purple much it would become a re-occurring…

Just a Mamma Art Maternity shoot setup

Maternity shoots are usually all about the belly, the mommy and the love between the couple that helped create this new little human. When you are blessed to experience a 2nd, 3rd or even 4th pregnancy, siblings add to the joy and while expecting our second little girl back in 2014 we knew we wanted to include big sis, Eliana in a family maternity photoshoot. Being only 2 at the time and naturally camera shy, posing wasn’t really her thing…
