A beautiful mommy and baby photos by AIS Portrait with motherhood story by Megan Olynick
How has motherhood changed you as a woman?
Motherhood has changed me as a woman by giving me a better appreciation for my body and what it is capable of. Women spend our adolescence and early adult years so focused on looking a certain way. But once I had my daughter I realized how strong and amazing my body is!
Tell us a little about your family?
Katelyn is our first child. My husband, Shaun, and I were married for 5 years before we had her. We live quite a distance away from all of our family, so we rely exclusively on one another. We try to spend as much time together as a family as possible, even if it that just means running errands together or laying on the floor playing with blocks.
What is one family tradition you have raised your children with?
We are raising Katelyn to have a strong appreciation of books. I grew up in a household where books were everywhere and trips to the local library were frequent. We have read to our daughter since she was an infant and books are now one of her favorite things. She even “reads” them on her own.
Favorite family vacation?
Most of our vacations involve going to visit family. I think my favorite was our first time taking her home to meet my grandparents during the Christmas holidays. My husband’s family traveled to my hometown so that we could spend time with them as well. It was a busy trip, but so full of love and laughter!
What advice would you give new mothers about raising children?
Do not stress! It doesn’t matter if your house is spotless or the nursery is decorated to a tee. What matters is the time spent with your little one and the memories that you create as a family. There will always be more laundry to do and dishes to put away, but each day your child is a little bit older and you can’t get those days back.
What are your beauty must-haves as a mom?
Good skin care! As a mom you don’t always have a lot of time to spend on yourself. I go a lot of days with very little or no makeup, so having a skin care product that I can rely on is a must!
