Mommy & Me in Suakoko Betty

Would you believe me if I told you I wasn’t sure if I ever wanted kids?  I was never a “kid” kinda woman.  I was still on the fence about kids even after I hit 30.  Maybe it was because I saw how my mom struggled and thought it wasn’t worth it.  Maybe it was because I heard  were so many horror stories of being a teen mom I was turned off.  Or was I just scared.  Would I be a good mom?  Would I be able to provide for them.  Fast forward ten years, I don’t know what my life would be like without my girls.  I’m so excited that I can include my baby dolls in what I’m passionate about.  I’m also grateful that brands like Suakoko Betty and Creative Soul Photography  help me capture beautiful moments with my girls.

Dresses by Suakoko Betty

Creative Soul has done it again!  I think you can feel the love and bond with my girls just by looking at these pictures.  I wanted to do African print looks for this shoot to celebrate being strong brown girls,plus I love Suakoko Betty!  Designer Charleene of Suakoko Betty killed it with these looks!  She doesn’t usually do girls clothes but after asking for the last 4 years since we met, she finally said yes.  You can shop Suakoko Betty HERE.

Did you know at a young age that for sure wanted kids? Or were you like me, a little scared of motherhood?

    Like you I didn’t consider myself the motherly type so I am surprised at how well I fell into the role. I didn’t want children but once I had one I knew I had to have two. Children are indeed the greatest blessings.

    You and your babies look amazing. I hope to see these blown up in your foyer!

    You ladies look fab! I first learned about Suakoko Betty at this year’s Texture on the Runway show. Loved the pieces she created so I was excited when I saw the title of this post.

    Growing up, I wanted 2 kids… then just one… then none. LOL! As I got older, the world got worse and I knew how hard it’d be to raise a child. I was like #teamnobabies! Never thought I was good with kids. AND I found a man who also didn’t want kids LOL. But surprise, surprise! We have our little man and we ADORE him! I hope to able to include him in my passions as you have done with your girls. 😉

    I always said “I don’t believe in kids or marriage (for myself)” and here I am married with two girls of my own! God has a sense of humor & his plans are perfect! I wouldn’t have my life any other way!

    I wasn’t sure if I wanted children as I didn’t think I would be a good enough mom. I saw all my mom did for us and I didn’t think I had it in me. But I’m a wonderful mother of 3 beautiful children, hoping to have one more.

    You three look gorgeous 💖
