This Mom Of Two Took Darkly Humorous Family Photos And It’s One Of The Best Things We’ve Ever Seen

This woman deserves a standing ovation for the family photos she took with her family.

Who is this queen of motherhood truth and hilarity? New York based actress and mother of two, Susan Copich. We love her so much. Copich is totally breaking down the barrier of truth in social media, especially when it comes to being a mom.

If you’ve met me, I have a very seemingly sunny disposition, but I have a whole interior world where at different times I’ve felt depression and angst. For many years, I put it in a little ball, and I decided to just explore it this time. It’s been so fun to bring those feelings out and give them light,’ she says. Each image has what Susan calls a ‘twist of darkness’ that challenges the ordinary perception of family happiness.” (via)

Thank you, Susan, for these amazing photos which are making all of us feel better. If we said every moment of motherhood was sunshine and crafting, we’d be damn liars. So much of a being a mother is feeling like you might tear your hair out at any moment – and that’s okay! The more we talk about and acknowledge that none of us are perfect and life can be really hard, the more we can appreciate those beautiful moments in between.
