Those dimpled hands. And on another note, I want to say thank you for all the kind comments and messages regarding Leo. I’m still making my way though but please know we appreciate every single one.

Today is the day! I woke up early this morning, crammed in a tiny hotel room with my husband and 4 children. It’s been a familiar scene to us, and while I may not get much sleep because at least one child is hitting me in the head and back all night with his hands and feet, it’s become something I look forward to because we are together. I know what it feels like to be separated from your family. To have half your heart in a hospital bed unsure of the future and the other back home. To take shifts with your husband so one parent is carrying for your sick baby on the 9th floor of oncology while the other takes care of the other babies safe in their beds. I count my blessings because we are together. So many... too many, do not have that luxury. I woke up early, lying crammed in a bed with three that was very clearly made for two. Today we are making the last leg of a familiar journey to celebrate an unfamiliar event. Today Leo will be walking the oncology halls to finally ring the bell celebrating the end of his treatment and being cancer free. For those who are unfamiliar with leukemia treatment, this doesn’t mean no more appointments. It means the end of chemotherapy which of course is huge, but he will continue to have count checks till around 18. While we celebrate the significance of today, it also doesn’t come without a heavy heart for those who never got their chance to ring the bell. So many of us, in some way have been affected by cancer on a personal level. But when a child gets cancer it can be soul crushing. These kids are forced to grow up and endure so many things they should never have to go through. While we celebrate today, we also send love to those who were not able to. I don’t think I’m particularly ever poetic with my words and perhaps that’s why I typically resort to visually expressing myself. And I’m far from perfect and had my selfish moments. But I hope in some small way this gives hope to those that may need it. Please know that when a parent shares their child’s story, it doesn’t come lightly or easily. It can be hard to know what to say. Please know that something is better than nothing. I see you. I hear you. Your story matters. 🎗

I had every intention of making her a beautiful leaf crown like I do for Leo every year on his birthday (it falls on the first day of fall🍂 ). I don’t know if it’s because she has copper hair, or the fact that I made the crown tall, or the colors I used but she looks like the Heat Miser. And if you don’t know who the Heat Miser is, see stories 😬 “Just when you think you know love, something little comes along to remind you just how big it really is.” Every other week we will showcase our growing babies during this season of life that is so fleeting.

Another installment of #myNormanRockwellproject This has been my favorite personal project to date. I had meant to replicate a painting once a month but truthfully, these take time. The best part of this whole experience has been the collaboration with my children. Norman Rockwell was most famous for his depiction of daily life in American culture. One of the many reasons I’m drawn to his work and capturing the everyday. His incredible art celebrated youth, diversity, patriotism and human rights. (Original inspiration in stories ) . Every fall has its own story. Follow along to see ours #jj_forum_2734 Next up: @blondieandbears Sigma Art 105mm 1.4

He’s gone picking with me every year since he was a tiny tot. This was the first year I noticed he actually picked ripe ones. It’s funny how the things that may have drove me bonkers before (all the unripened fruit picked and sneaking apple bites ) are the things I actually miss the most. 🍎 🎉30k Celebration Giveaway Loop 🎉 • Today we are celebrating @jj_its_kids reaching 30k followers.

Scrub a dub dub Miss Sass in the tub 🤨🛁 This sweet pea has been feeling unwell on and off the past couple weeks. With her starting daycare part time, we knew that would happen. So lots of warm baths it is for her ❤️ • @sigmaphoto Art 35mm 1.4 • Inspired by the talented @callred25

🎗September is pediatric cancer awareness month. 🎗Today, 43 children will be diagnosed with cancer. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the whole family is affected. From siblings who may not understand why their brother or sister is sick to parents who are consumed with worry and want nothing more than to cure their child, we want them to know they are not alone in this journey. To show our love and support for the many families affected by childhood cancer we are turning Instagram GOLD this September with the #gogoldloop and The Gold Hope Project. For those of you that don’t know, The Gold Hope Project is a registered 501(c )(3 ) non-profit organization of photographers who aim to provide free portrait sessions to families battling pediatric cancer while funding innovative cancer research. Join us by tagging your images #teamup4goldkids and to learn more, please visit @thegoldhopeproject Up next @haymason 🌻Inspired by @jamieeilts hope image last year🌻

Love grows best in little houses, with fewer walls to separate. Where you eat and sleep so close together, you can’t help but communicate. And if we had more room between us, think of all we’d miss. Love grows best in little houses just like this.

Arrived at my parents to find this pretty little spot. Just a bunch of logs, piled up ever so neatly at the edge of the basketball court my brother and I played countless hours on growing up. There’s something about watching your children play in the same places you used to. And I FINALLY captured this expression of Scouts. She does this all the time but it’s fleeting... and my favorite 😆 Zoom in for leg rolls. 🌿 @sigmaphoto Art 105mm 1.4

The last nurse. Our journey is dwindling. I’ve always loved nursing even though it’s never come easily. I’m grateful for these moments and savoring our single, sleepy nursing session each night. Maybe you need to hear this... maybe I need to remind myself... Fed is best, no matter how. 🌿 Dawn Presets - coming soon @sigmaphoto Art 35mm 1.4

What do you want to be when you grow up? Archie: A waterman! No I mean a fireman. No Spiderman! Woody: A pumpkin picker. Leo: A police officer. Every year these keep getting better and better 😆 I can’t wait to see a little Scout walking alongside them soon. They are officially off to school. It’s the first year all three boys are in a grade. Obligatory letter board photos coming soon 🤗

The other day I read this quote by @marymarantz that really resonated me, “Remember: You don’t have to hustle more, weigh less, earn more, sleep less, spend more, slow down less, people please more or say no less... in order for your Story to Matter.” Everyone’s journey as we all know is unique. It doesn’t come without sacrifices and hard work. Over the years I’ve had more struggles than I care to count... late nights, 4am wakeups to work before my children wake, self doubt, 5 month rut, and more. Like everyone else I’ve had achievements that I am still in disbelief over and this one, for me, was a career highlight. I never could have imagined Scout and I being on the cover of Click... a magazine filled from cover to back with artists I have looked up to for many years. There’s so much to be thankful and grateful for and this is certainly one of them for me. And congrats to many of my talented friends and artists who were in this issue including beautiful spreads by @kdokoza @jensebringphotography @tampabirthphotographer @jessie b.photo • Sigma Art 24mm

Late summer evenings at home. While I’m looking forward to autumn 🍂 , I’m going to miss these long days with no schedule. We have made a lot of beautiful memories this first summer in our new home. 🌿 The boys have been collecting treasures in these reusable bags by @erimova_ Anything we can do to reduce the plastic we use, no matter how small, makes a difference. 🌿 Knits by @oeufnyc
