20 photos that show what it's like to be a mom to 3 sons

Sara Easter was an only child who always wished she had brothers or sisters. She grew up to not only become a professional photographer, but also a mom to 3 boys now aged 4, 7 and 9, which led to her documenting the daily antics of her  young brood.

As she says herself, "At this point the boys are pretty immune to my picture taking. I photograph them almost daily so they hardly even notice me doing it anymore. It's just a thing their mom does."

Like any other parent, Sara started photographing her boys so she could immortalize their childhood, but it rapidly turned into a series of improvised snaps so that she could capture them unawares going about their daily lives. She hopes that they’ll keep these shots to one day show to their own off-spring, but she admits that she too would prefer to keep memories of who they really are, rather than create a series of formal or portrait-style photos. The settings may remain the same, but you’ll see the boys rapidly growing up, with new toys arriving and new tricks up their sleeves. These candid shots show Sara’s kids as she sees them – three funny, gentle, kind boys caught behaving naturally: photos that will strike a chord with every parent!
