Who doesn’t want to watch someone play with their kids?
A children and family lifestyle photographer just released a new photo series that perfectly captures a “day in the life” that most women, and all moms, can relate to. Because, we’d take an unclogged toilet and someone cleaning our car over flowers any day.
Photographer Danielle Guenther, a mother from Hoboken, New Jersey, titled the series: “What Women Want!” and decided to photograph the scenes with humor in mind. “I thought it’d be super fun to start photographing the humor of what women want,” Guenther writes on her Facebook page. “After speaking to several women, I found it to be the SIMPLE THINGS. Life can be all too crazy and complicated, but if you focus on the simple things, it can be quite beautiful.”
There’s her “I’m Gonna be Late Tonight,” photo featuring a shirtless man (possibly her husband, possibly not – we aren’t judging) unclogging the toilet, and the toilet’s owner looking particularly pleased at what she is witnessing. And hey, who can blame her; it’s the little things, yo.
Guenther’s series also features a photo titled, “Mom Juice,” of a dad taking care of the kids in the backyard while his wife sits back, feet up, chugging what we can only assume is vodka-spiked KoolAid, because what other kind of KoolAid is there?
Another titled: “OLD School Girls’ Night in,” shows a bunch of ladies whooping it up how we do in our 30’s and 40’s, by eating in bed and falling asleep by ten. Don’t judge. “You’re never to old to bring back the Zima,” Guenther writes. We couldn’t agree more, Danielle, Zima is making a comeback on the market for a reason.
And who doesn’t want their car cleaned out while they sit, thumbing through a magazine and having their hair braided? Sounds like a dreamy Saturday to me.
This next shot, “Heavy on the Errands,” features Guenther’s brother, Michael. Or as he shall henceforth be known, “Hey, now, are you single?” Not sure what to love more, the look of concentration on his face as he weighs up the cardboard versus plastic applicators or the six-pack in his basket. “This one is inspired from my childhood when my dad ran out to get me tampons in the middle of the night. Talk about saving the day!”
Guenther tells Scary Mommy she found it incredibly interesting that most women said they appreciated the small things the most. “How beautiful is that?” Guenther said. “I think as we age, we can lose sight of what’s important in life, and really, it’s the small gestures we do for people in our lives that go such a long way.”
