Why Fresh 48 Sessions Matter – Becci Ravera Photography

Roseville, Sacramento and Northern CA Photographer | Family and Newborn Lifestyle Photographer I was talking to a friend the other day. This friend is a beautiful soul and mama to two little ones. We were talking about all the things that mom friends talk about, how we manage to juggle everything, how we used to be cool a long time ago, but how we wouldn’t change any of it for the world. Then we started chatting about those first few special moments in the hospital after a little’s were born. My sweet friend looked at me and said “Do you know …

Day 12 of 12 Days of Stress Free

This is probably my second favorite subject after my Vacation one- and it has truly been an incredible blessing for me in my life this past year. Anxiety and depression are my key cornerstones to help women- but more so- I meet a lot of women- for reasons on their own- who want to wean off their medication, or avoid prescription drugs, or stop taking them after they start to get better. That is a choice that THEY make- all on their own- and I am more than happy to try and provide them with options to help manage their …

Day 11 of 12 Days of Stress Free

Remember yesterday- my soap box about nutrition? Well today I’m going to talk about another foundation block- Sleeping This is totally a taboo subject as well- because somewhere between the 90s and 2017 we developed this belief that sleep was overrated. All nights, energy drinks, energy pills and supplements were developed to keep us awake and performing more. So we could work harder, longer, and basically exhaust ourselves into a mental break down. Add kids to the mixture and GOOD LORD are we TIRED. So not only have we been trying to literally be superman- doing EVERYTHING: WorkVolunteerClean HouseRaise KidsRun …

Day 9 of 12 days of Stress Free

On the opposite side of the spectrum from my normal posts I’m going to share with you something I love- but rarely have the opportunity to actually do. And that is- getting all dolled up. Let’s be honest for a second- I rarely get dressed in anything worth batting an eye. Clothes haven’t fit me properly since I was rocking a cute baby bump- and with a toddler, hardly anything is comfortable chasing her around all day. So usually I’m in some sort of lounge clothes- I won’t even try and pass it off as “active casual” because it’s mainly …

Day 4 of 12 Days of Stress Free

We’re going to roll right into some more organization tools after yesterday’s post about writing. Organizing can make or break my stress level. I briefly mentioned how if I fail to set aside time each week to plan out my week- everything just kind of falls apart. I’ve learned that there’s a right way to organize and there’s a wrong way. And just like with everything it takes practice. And trial and error and some really bad weeks to really see what needs to be tweaked. So I want to tell you not to get discouraged if this takes time- …

Day 3 of 12 days of Stress Free

To go along with reading from yesterday- let’s talk about the otherside: Writing As moms we probably all make lists of some sort. Maybe it’s post-it’s, maybe it’s old fashioned lists, maybe it’s on our phone or paper- but mom brain is real and in my world if I don’t write it down- then all hope is definitely lost in my world. Enter in where writing comes in handy. So I’m going to share two types of writing with you- each have different purposes. But they each matter greatly in my world. First: Writing Lists Writing lists make or break …

Day 1 of the 12 Days of Stress Free

In the beginning of my postpartum journey- there wasn’t much that made me calm down. My husband was deployed and I was learning to be a mother alone. But I had to control something- something needed to be tackled because I am a do-er- and if you have kids- you know very well- THEY DO NOTHING THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO. They’re super schedule destroyers and life suckers in the beginning- don’t hate me- you know I’m right.  This tiny infant invaded your body- was an alien inside of you- kicking you, making you sick, cramping your organs and when it came …
