If you know me you know I love photos. Mainly looking at them, mainly posting them. I’ve always been so fascinated by the ability to capture a moment, freeze it in time and have it with you physically forever...as a little kid I remember ripping out magazine pages and stockpiling the oddest prints because I loved the photos so much. It was weird and beautiful - but anyways, when was the last time you were actually IN a photo with your kid(s)? Easier for others than some, but no less important. Enter @little.explorers.photography 📸☺️ our new resident photographer who will be joining us on all our #wildandtiny2018 adventures this summer! 🌼☀️Lindsey is a Paediatric Occupational Therapist by day and a budding adventure photographer by night. To say she knows her way around a bunch of playful baby & kids is an understatement 💕She’ll be snapping away on Monday and providing you with photos of it all so come join us! We’ll supply the memory making you supply the cute babies. Details and registration in bio. Can’t wait to see you there! 💛📸 🌿 • • • • • #wildandtiny2018 #wildandtinyfitness #outdoormamas #hikingwithbabies #regainyourstrength #postpartumfitness #postpartumhealth #northvancouver #northshore #momgroup #hikinggroup #strongwomen #healthykids #happylittlehikers #adventuremamas #pnwoutdoorwomen #vancouvertrails #outdoorvancouver #explorevancouver #vancouverhikes #explorebc #vancouver #yvr #explorevanNS #momswhohike #hikebc #modernhiker #modernmomgroup

"The healing way of Shinrin-yoku Forest Therapy, the medicine of simply being in the forest. Shinrin-yoku is a term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine." 🌱 Yup. We feel that 🤲 #linkinbio #joinus • • • • • #wildandtiny2018 #wildandtinyfitness #outdoormamas #hikingwithbabies #regainyourstrength #postpartumfitness #postpartumhealth #northvancouver #northshore #momgroup #hikinggroup #strongwomen #healthykids #happylittlehikers #adventuremamas #pnwoutdoorwomen #vancouvertrails #outdoorvancouver #explorevancouver #vancouverhikes #explorebc #vancouver #yvr #explorevanNS #momswhohike #hikebc #modernhiker #modernmomgroup

Today feels like a good day for an introduction. Hi! 👋🏻 My name is Hilary and Motherhood blindsided me 😅 It isn’t lost on me the blessing that is conceiving, carrying and exclusively feeding a child...I know that now, but I didn’t then. Our baby days were suffocating. With all the support and love in the world (and the shiniest of instagram photos) I felt scared. Alone. Unworthy this perfect being and the title that so many women long for. • • • So came the guilt, followed by the shame. Followed by tough days that turned into tough weeks. My solace during this time was escaping to Mother Nature🌿The trails, the trees, the forest, the green. Ryah would sleep and I could somewhat control my mind. • • • After months like this and a solid dose of family, therapy and medication I began to see the light that followed my season of darkness, my season of PPA. One day I thought. “I wonder if anyone else feels this way? Would anybody actually join me out here?” They didn't have to be feeling what I was feeling, but surely there were others who would share the trail with me. Maybe they want to get out but don’t know the way. Maybe the timing doesn’t work and they need somebody to say HEY YOU. Meet me here and bring your baby, let’s do this together. And did they come? OH DID THEY COME. New Moms, veteran Moms, old friends, new friends. Dads, nannies. They came and here we are now @wildandtiny ❤️ While I really have no idea how to run an “events company” the truth is, this is my story and regardless of yours I want you to join me. If you’re still reading this, I want you to you know that I see you. I see the work you’re doing as a parent and let me tell you it’s the most important work you’ll do in your entire life. You are killing it. Some days will look like your Pinterest page and some days will look like a complete disaster. No matter the day, you are not alone. You can sit with me and tell me all about it ✨ Join me and the tribe we’ve built at Rice Lake, 12:45 tomorrow June 25th. Registration required, link in bio. Will you be a part of our community? #wildandtiny #wildandtiny2018 #hikingwithbabies #youcansitwithus #notyouraveragemomgroup✌🏻💕

• “I started @allthemamafeels because as a new mom I was feeling lonely, crazy, craving a tribe and an outlet to understand if I was the only one struggling. Now, we are 400+ strong in our private Facebook support group, and creating life-altering moments in our Mama gatherings. I’m realizing my vision has grown immensely. My ultimate vision is to activate maternal power and have mothers know themselves as a graceful force to be reckoned with, taking on positions of leadership & influence to restore balance on planet earth 🌏 👑” • • • • • Join @stephjhala from @allthemamafeels tomorrow during @mamamondays as she brings us through a Mama Mindfulness session, and help us bring the focus back where it should be. Even just for an hour! 👋🏻💁🏼‍♀️✨1:30-2:30 @kidsphysio • • • • #yvrmama #yvrmoms #vancitymama #empoweredmoms #motherhoodrising #mothermusing #mindfulmama #brenebrown #leanin #ppdfree #conciousparenting
