It’s soon my niece birthday!

My niece is going to celebrate her birthday soon. And although this birthday is obviously not coming as a surprise I’m now sitting here thinking about an appropriate present, consulting Google for a great idea.

The Diagnosis

Every mother knows it it feels when you finally hold your child in your arms and know he is healthy. It was in 2008 that my niece Lea was born, she was the first baby in the family, everyone was glad that the birth went well and that we finally welcomed a new family member.

Every road leads to the beach !

We are lucky enough to live on the island of Oleron, 500m away from the ocean, right next to a forest. For our holidays, we travel searching wind and waves!


4 at home, a new life

“The most important for me is to be with my family and enjoy every moment the four of us can spend together because time passes all too quickly!”


Home is a retreat – home means to arrive

This family feels comfortable when it is not too cluttered – Not too much things hanging on the walls and not too much color. Lori likes to keep the appartment clean and organized. Sometimes, however, a little bit of a mess is ok, even if there is somebody coming for a visit- thanks to her daughter Merle she became more relaxed, because time is running too fast, she prefers to do something with her.

Stuttgart is home – “We feel good here, that’s where we want to stay.”

I've known Flo for a long time - unfortunately, we had lost contact. When I heard that he had a daughter, I thought I finally had a good reason to visit him and his family in Stuttgart. In the interview, they tell us about their parental leave, their needs and what they prefer to do when they have time.


“Survival trick? Say good-bye to perfection!”

When we visited the small family in Stuttgart, I realized immediately that I wanted to portray them after the Homestory. We chose a sunny day and met again in Stuttgart, in the heart of the city that Flo loves to ride on his BMX. Read more here!

Living in the Stuttgart Heusteig district – the city life with a child

OH LA LA MAMA visited Tine, Flo and her two-year-old daughter, Ilvy. It wasn't only about checking their appartment out, we also wanted to know about their life in Stuttgart with a child and how their lives as parents changed. Read on and learn more about this sympathetic three and sometimes even four-headed family.
