We’ve worked with Chloe on a few projects lately and have loved getting to know her. She is mama to almost 2 year old Ava.
Tell us one of your favourite things about being a mother.
Anytime her little hand grips mine in a tight hold while we walk.
What is one piece of parenting advice you heard and tried to follow as a mother.
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Tell us one of your favourite memories of parenthood so far.
When Ava realised she was Ava. She kept pointing to herself again and again saying Ava, Ava! She was so happy to be her own person in the world.
What if your idea of the perfect way to spend a day with your little one?
In nature, swimming.
What are your favourite books to read to your babe?
Dr Suess is always on rotation as well as a collection of vintage Beatrix Potter books that belonged to my step mother as a child.
Do you have any family rituals?
My husband gets up every weekday morning with Ava and makes himself a coffee, Ava a baby chino and me a cup of tea. Ava climbs into bed with me and we drink our beverages whilst reading stories in bed.
What one thing we will never catch you doing as a mama?
Saying “I’ll never….” because I’ve done everything I thought I would never do as a mom.
What is the biggest surprise to you about having children?
How clever they are and their ability to teach you. I feel like she teaches me far more than I teach her.
What do you love most about your husband being a dad?
Aw man, EVERYTHING!? Seeing them develop their own relationship that’s separate from me is pretty special. I shoot over weekends so they spend a lot of time together and it really shows.
