I love my two daughters but seriously, parenting can suck hardcore sometimes. There is the washing, cooking, cleaning, school events, extra curricular activities, sickness, fighting, mess and just general chaos. Most days are just a battle to get everyone through the day in one piece, with as little crying as possible (including me). Sometimes when you scroll through Instagram it can feel like everyone else is nailing parenting with their picture perfect well-behaved kids.
Photographer Dannielle Guenther was inspired to create a series of photographs that show what parenting REALLY looked like. The series ‘Best Case Scenario’ was born after a regular client of Danielle’s “just laid down on the couch, and I [said] we should do a funny one. She has a wonderful sense of humour, [and] she was all about it! And then it just spiralled out of control in a really great way.”
The photographs show what a shared experience parenting is; from chaos at the supermarket, to being sick with kids, to crawling out of a sleeping baby’s room. These pics are hilarious, real and totally brilliant and make me feel like I’m less alone in this parenting battle. Now I’d call that insta worthy!!
