Lisa is a wife, photographer and mama of three. She’s raising her little ones in the PNW and while her feed may be perfectly curated & filled with her amazing photos, the captions are filled with beautifully raw life moments & stories.
What is a real life mama moment you have had recently?
We are in the thick of it currently. We have a kindergartner, a 3 year old, and a newborn. Shortly after having our baby, my sweet beautiful 3 year old came downstairs with a MULLET. She cut the most perfect mullet I’ve ever seen, but I was horrified. I was so bent on the notion that I should have it all together, because it’s our third after all…and then our daughter gave me a not so gentle reminder that motherhood is just a whole lot of finding bliss in the chaos. So we cut off some jeans, grabbed a mop, and did a Joe Dirt inspired photoshoot.
How have you grown as a woman since becoming a mother?
I’m a big believer that Motherhood changes us in the quiet. If we allow it to, it softens and grows our hearts. In the beginning of motherhood I lost myself. I felt stripped of my own identity, and like I was sort of wading through. Slowly I learned we were never asked to give up everything and only be defined as “mom.” It takes time to get the balance down, but I think motherhood has made me love deeper, and pursue my dreams harder.
what is your favorite goumi product?
We love loungewear because it is perfect for adventuring. We can layer it for snowboarding, use the stirrups in rain boots for puddle jumping, and the pockets hold so many treasures.
