    Edit Photo Details Time to Sleep   #motherhood #selfportrait #documentaryfamilyphotography
    It's 10:44pm in Sacramento, CA and I'm still awake rocking my newborn to sleep, while my other three babies are passed out on the couch. In an hour or two, my newborn will wake up to be fed or held; my toddler will wake up crying for me to lay with her so she can fall back asleep. With 4 children, a night of interrupted sleep is normal. While I still find myself chasing the elusive "full night's rest", I'm very aware of the fact that these sleep-deprived moments are the times I'll miss most.
