New photos up on Jenna Cole photography  

embracing the messiness and capturing the Realities of Motherhood. Every mom should have photos like this with their kids.

 


Needless to say, she prefers the Realities of Motherhood when it comes to visiting a friend rather than interacting with her own children. 

It's probably just me but…. The second photo, of the mother laughing with her messy toddler while she holds the spray can in her hand, makes me think she's just sprayed him in the face with cleaning fluid.  Maybe it's cream and she sprayed him to create the mess? 

None of it says Reality or Motherhood to me.

Both of those photos look like there is a magnetic knife rack on the bottom shelf of that Ikea kitchen console (ie in reach of the baby). Surely that's not what it really is. I even went back and found the picture Jenna posted on her personal instagram to check, but the baby is sitting in front of whatever it is so that didn't help.

Also it made me roll my eyes so hard that this is somehow 'real' motherhood. Maybe it's somebody's real motherhood? But it looks nothing like mine. It looks like a performance. Twee clothes, nice house, god she had time to do her hair this morning! Spraying your baby with cream inside? (I have done that, but outside)

What in f**k would this woman know about the Realities of Motherhood?!? Maybe she is so removed from it that she thinks those pictures are actually representative of what motherhood looks like – it's as if she doesn't have children or something – oh wait…

My Flawless Danish Complexion meowed

That lighting in that sofa-in-a-field photo looks to direct/harsh.

Not to mention those flat pillows. uh

I imagine the light source to be headlights from the truck that hauled in the furniture.

This image could not be worse. Its like a parody of a Grace Coddington Vogue shoot. Only its no parody, it's a sincere effort of yokels. I actually think it's brilliant, it's so awful.

 

Yes! It looks like a parked car/truck is sitting out of range with the headdlights on.

Can we talk about that latest IG film pic of the kids? Scrubby median strip in front of a bank, unimpressive backdrop of the parking lot. Why would she pull out the film for that? That is a quick phone shot at best and T1's eyes are closed. Was that the best she had to share???? What am I missing?

 

I agree. I don't know why anyone would bother taking a photo with that background and crappy dirt-tastic foreground.

Yeah…anything to make motherhood look bad. And "a touch sardonic".

In her latest Instagram she tagged #filmmama AGAIN. Recently she was invited to moderate the #film_mama site for a week, but most of her tagged photos didn't make it onto their Instagram because she kept tagging #filmmama instead. Now, she's clearly keen to keep reminding us that she was a moderator on Film Mama, but it's still not important enough to get the tag right.  Well if it didn't matter when she was [air quotes] working there, why would it matter now…

I get what they're trying to do with those photos. But, yet again, it's not all that well executed and I think that has a lot to do with Jenna's photography. And while it's an interesting idea, it doesn't actually say all that much. At least, I don't think it does via the photos she's shared on her IG.

This motherhood portrait is bullshit. No one dresses up in their totes adorbes clothes and lets their kids fling sticky whipped cream everywhere. It reminds me of this commercial, and is about as realistic. But why should I expect Jenna "Not Defined By Motherhood" to have any concept of what actual motherhood looks like? She was probably confused when she arrived at Ms. Twee's house and there was nary a nany or a PB&J in sight.

Should you continue with this type of photography series, here are some suggestion for actual Realities of Motherhood:

-Child demanding irritating television program over and over again.

-Parents up at 2 am changing puke-soaked sheets and playing Work Roulette to see who will have to miss work the next day to stay home with the sick kid and who will have to go to work on 5 hours of broken sleep.

- Parent taking child to Target just for something to do, and because it's too cold to go to the park. 

-Parent making a nice meal for the child and the child refusing to eat it. 

 

Are these the finest moments of motherhood? No. But if her goal was to show what actual motherhood looks like, then a staged shoot where a woman with perfect hair and makeup, wearing high f**king heels and a nice dress playacts a fun scene with her children did not meet her goal.

Jenna's caption reads:

Thank you thank you film, for teaching me that the soft ones with just-barely-off focus can be gems as well.

Uh, no Jenna. That's a shot that shouldn't have made the cut for your project. And not just because it's out of focus (stop trying to make "just-barely-off focus" happen, it's not going to happen.)

Oh My CAT

Can't quote you, B***hin', but I soooooo agree. She should NOT have posted this image. Can you imagine how it looks blown up? 

 

She has to stop calling blurry images "soft." They are blurry.

#TRUTH and let's not forget about you know being up in the middle of the night feeding your child or pumping or trying to get them back to sleep just because they're having a nightmare, meanwhile looking at the clock and wondering how you'll get back to sleep yourself once you get the opportunity to and then how you'll function on the miserable amount of sleep you got in the last three days because your child is going through a growth spurt and nothing you do just works. Jenna really needs to stop pretending about knowing about motherhood, because honestly she knows jack shit.
