It's the first week of January and we are all awash in the topic of New Year's Resolutions. Every magazine, blog, and morning tv show is telling us how to do it right. And on the flip side, scaring us with the statistics of how many will fail. I don't know about you, but to me it feels a bit overwhelming. Should we even bother if 90% of us aren't going to succeed?

One of the most amazing parts about our jobs at Little Nest Portraits is that we get to meet the most amazing moms literally daily. Everyone who walks into our studios has a powerful story to share and getting to be a part of that-- learning about it exactly what brought them to us in that moment of time.
One of our longtime friends, Rebecca Fox Starr is a mom and client that we've loved from the moment we met her. Becca started her blog, Mommy Ever After after the birth of her daughter and through the birth of her son. Shortly after her son was born, she published her struggles with post-partum depression in a powerful blog post that has since created a support system and community of moms and folks everywhere who share a similar story and struggle. Becca was kind enough to sit down with us and talk about what it meant to share her personal story, what "real life" looks like in our Instagram world and her life now. Her story of hope, overcoming and sharing is one that will resonate with anyone. We loved every second of it, and think you will, too.read more ⇒
