Instamom: Anna Ciolina

Bloesem Kids | Instagram mom: Anna Ciolina

Welcoming Anna to our favorite group of instagram mommies! Find out her 3 favorite times of the day, what being a mom means to her and how instagram has become something she did not expect it to be..

I N S T A M O M:

am Anna Ciolina, 25 and a (children-) stylist and photographer. I've always loved styling and taking pictures, and ever since my pregnancy that changed into everything becoming kids-related... I live in The Netherlands, Rotterdam with my big love Christopher and daughter Stella (Pomme).
 
Number of kiddos: Stella just turned two years. For now, it's only her. But I would love to have a big family.
 
Sundays are for: Sleeping in, yes really: I'm blessed with a kid that loves to sleep. Breakfast at our favorite place around the corner and family. I come from a big family (5 kids) and on Sunday we always eat at my parents. Stella loves it there, because there are animals and she gets to help her grandfather ('opie'): getting the eggs from the chickens and feeding the goats. I have so many great memories there and although I love living in the city, in a couple of years I would love to live like that: in a old house with a big garden and animals.

My favorite Time of the day: I work from home, so my days are usually very scheduled. I use the morning to completely focus my attention on Stella, we go out and I will leave my phone at home. I love my mornings with her, although it can be really hard to work at home sometimes, I'm so happy I've seen her grow up these two years and have this amazing bond with her... After our morning together, we come back, eat lunch and she will take her nap. This is the time I have a couple hours to work. I also love this time, so I can focus and can relax because I know I did what I needed to do. And of course in the evening when Chris comes home, is that lame? Maybe it is, but he still makes me laugh every day and love to see Stella and Chris having their moment in the evening. So I have three favorite times a day ;)

At the moment I am very busy with work!! Instagram is an amazing place and it's so fun to see brands/people finding you through such an amazing app. A family portrait, a lookbook for a store and shooting product pictures: these are just a couple of the things I need to do this week and most of them found me through Instagram. I never thought Instagram would provide me work and also friends!! It's a fun (but sometimes also weird) place... 
 
My day consists of.. Stella and work mostly, but now that Stella is going to pre-school, I get three mornings 'free'. So I will see friends and do stuff for myself...
 
Bloesem Kids | Instagram mom: Anna Ciolina
 
Other passions are: My work (kids fashion, photography and styling) is also my passion but next to that I spend my time at our home. I love to change things around here... I've always got bored quite fast but now with Instagram and Pinterest it's getting worse! I don't mind at all and love to get inspired but Chris isn't always very happy with me. But in the end we have a cozy home so he can't complain too much. 
 
Being a Mom means… trying to be the best version of who you can be. So your kid has a good example and grows up to be a happy, social, creative and independent person. Maybe that's different for every child you get, but this is what I hope for Stella to be.

Instamom: Take a picture lady

Bloesem kids | Instagram mom Emma of @takeapicturelady

We're on a roll with amazing instamoms who are coincedentally amazing photographers as well. Emma of @takeapicturelady impresses us shot after shot with her daily instagram photographs, so we thought we'd get to know her a little better. A passionate lady with an incredible talent behind the lens, Emma's photographs reminds us not to forget to go out and enjoy nature.

I N S T A M O M:

I am a mother, photographer, inspired, old soul, chasing my tail, aiming for the stars, too tired to concentrate, rubbish at housework, in love with the outdoors and natural light, easy-going, going grey at 34, a good cook, procrastinator for at least a week of the month,thinking about being a vegetarian and always looking for ways to be more environmentally conscious, dream of moving nearly every day.

Number of kiddos: I have two children.. I had Monty, who is now 9, when i was just 25, which felt young. Two years later, Agnes arrived. Now I feel I am getting life back, but also wondering whether to have another child?!

Sundays are for: slowing down. A leisurely bike ride or canoe on the river, reading, and most definitely cooking. We all love to cook in this house and I'm gradually giving jobs to the children. Cooking is such a big life skill, from day to day survival, conversations, interaction with local producers, and bringing together family and friends.

You can't leave now.. the rest of the question and answer sesh awaits you after the cut..


My favorite Time of the day are is that first sip of wine, just before tucking my chair around the kitchen table to eat and chat with my family. We always cook from scratch every day, and sit together. 

Bloesem kids | Instagram mom Emma of @takeapicturelady

At the moment I am embarking on some fantastic projects with other mother photographers and some wonderful brands. They inspire me and drive my work forward. And I'm usually trying to fit that around sweeping, laundry and the school run. We also own a cafe bar, gourmet burgers, cocktails and milkshakes. It's a family business and is a part of our life, with the hustle and bustle, part of the community and continuous work that it brings.

Bloesem kids | Instagram mom Emma of @takeapicturelady

My day consists of much of the above and never getting round to doing half of the things I hope to do.

Other passions are around the corner. My family, work and weekends keep me busy. We dream of a life ahead where things might be different from what we have. But at the end of the day, we must be grateful. I am passionate about good craftsmanship and ethics, in all areas of life. 

Bloesem kids | Instagram mom Emma of @takeapicturelady

Being a Mom means that I'm happy and tired. Busy and heartfelt. And always there for a hug.

Free & Wild Child

Bloesem kids | #instamom: Karianne of Free and Wild Child

It's thursday and we are back with another Instagram Mom ! We have Karianne of @freeandwildchild who is also a fellow blogger with an organic and ethical blog that we adore. If you like childrens fashion and are keen on all things ethical, we suggest you head over for a peek. Plus her two little ones are simply precious!

I N S T A M O M: 

I am an Oslo art student and concert going skateboard chick turned stay at home mama blogger in Sydney. 

Number of kiddos: I have two kids, Mr C (almost 4) and Miss W(2).

Sundays are for family fundays: exploring, relaxing, milkshakes, sleep ins if super lucky and yummy dinners/ togetherness.

Bloesem kids | #instamom: Karianne of Free and Wild Child

My favorite Times of the day are when we come home from being somewhere, normally between 2-3pm, the kids have had lots of fun and are worn out, happy, and I make myself a coffee and sit down and feel good about our day.

At the moment I am laying next to Miss W who just went to sleep for the night. I still breastfeed her to sleep and sometimes I just stay in bed for a while after, just cuddling. Sometimes I don't even get back up: it turns out I don't just wear them out, they wear me out too.

Bloesem kids | #instamom: Karianne of Free and Wild Child

My day consists waiting or rushing.

No day is the same but we have to be out the door before 10:30am or we just wont make it out at all. (If we haven't left by then miss W gets cranky, followed by sleep, then its suddenly 2pm before she wakes: then Mr C is tired.... If we manage to leave then Miss W lasts till 1-2pm) funny how their sleep can run our days! That is the rush bit. We go places: parks, walks, playdates, shopping (generally all or some of the above in a day) . We also have days at home where we count, learn the alphabet, sing, dans, jump, climb, play with water (a lot), play with balloons (a lot too), play with playdoh (even more) and stickers and trampoline etc.
Our days are not filled with chores: we dont have a car, no kindy or school to rush us so we just do whatever is needed and wanted that day. 

Bloesem kids | #instamom: Karianne of Free and Wild Child

Other passions include:  my kids. I can list a handful of other things but in all honesty: i have 2 hours to myself pr day: 9pm-11pm .. And then I just want some dark chocolate and a tv show while I'm also on instagram or blogging.

Being a Mom means everything.

Instamom: The Stork and the Bean Stalk

Bloesem Kids | Instamom: We get to know Ashley of The Stork and the Bean stalk

One of our favourite columns on Bloesem kids is our thursday Instagram Mom features... so we thought we'd get to know our favourite moms abit better by asking them a few questions .. this week Ashley of @thestorkandthebeanstalk was so kind to give us abit of her time. We love how open and honest she is and of course her beautiful photography of her 2 boys as well as other families ( she's a photographer!).

I N S T A M O M:

I am in love with banana chips, banana bread, and bananas baked into pancakes, but I hate bananas by themselves.

Number of kiddos: I have two boys, aged 2 & 3. Most days I'm dying for just one more; other days I tell people to punch me in the ovaries for considering such a thing.

Sundays involve trying to pull my husband away from football on the TV so he can help me get stuff done around the house. I kid. We like to have as much fun on the weekends as much as we can. We go to the desert, visit family in Arizona, hit up flea markets, and spend a ton of time at the beach.

My favorite Times of the day are in the morning, when the kids wake up, and at night, when they go to sleep. Such is motherhood, right?

At the moment I am hot. We are in a mean heat wave here in Southern California and do not have air conditioning. The pumpkins at the grocery store keep telling me it's nearly fall, but the stagnant air in the house is making summer look more stubborn than ever.

My day consists of a lot of typical mom activities: making meals, cleaning dishes, attempting to keep the kids from strangling each other, taking our dog Jimmie out to do his thing, playing whack-a-mole around nap time so I can get a moment of "me time", and so on and so forth. And then there are the days where we throw it all to the breeze, tell routine to more or less kiss our behind, and go explore a new area or do something we've been wanting to do for a while or even something that just popped in our head that morning. Those are my favorite days. Despite the messy house, unkempt kids, and inevitable tantrums, those days are the memory makers. I live for those days.

Other passions include: Music. I can't sing or play an instrument to save my life but I strongly believe everything in life is better when set to a soundtrack. I'm also passionate about birth and support women in taking control and educating themselves about the process. Before I became a mom, I traveled all over and that helped shape who I am today,so I guess you could say I'm passionate about self-exploration, autonomy, and adventure. Oh ya, and greasy french fries; specifically, McDonald's.

Being a Mom, for me, means accepting that all phases in life are temporary. When I struggle with my role, I remind myself that it will pass. And when I'm head-over-heels in love with my role, I remind myself to stay present in the moment.
