What Parenting REALLY Looks Like

Life with children is not Instagram-worthy all the time. Danielle Guenther's photo series documents the funny, unglamorous reality of parenting.

Children are fantastic fun but lets be frank, life with children is not Instagram-worthy all the time. Sure we curate the best moments to post online for our friends and family to coo at but a lot of the time, raising little humans is a dirty, smelly, noisy job (that we wouldn't give up for anything!)

Self taught photographer Danielle Guenther, based in New York realized this during a family shoot. She has since shot to fame with photos that recreate unglamorous and imperfect parenting moments. They are pretty funny, and you might find yourself nodding your head at some of these situations!
