Working Mom

Social media supermoms would have you believe that raising a child and running a business simultaneously is easy. I want to be transparent about the fact that it is actually far from, regardless of what our highlight reel may project. Due to breastfeeding challenges, the thought of Levi sleeping peacefully to the hum of my machines has been usurped by takeout meals, drastically reduced work hours, and a perpetually messy home, despite my husband’s decision to take parental leave. Nevertheless, there are countless moments in the day that make it all worthwhile, like those captured below.

Baby Levi, super cutie extraordinaire!
