"Monday Mornings" aims to prove there is beauty in every mother's morning, even if we need an outsider to see it. Thanks to a partnership with Allstate, I am flying lifestyle photographer Raquel Bianca across the US to document the morning routines of twelve mothers in five different cities. This is our third stop in Los Angeles.
Anna is a stay-at-home mom and freelance writer who lives in Hollywood with her husband Chris, their 21 month-old Noah and their new baby Rose, born just three weeks ago.
"We are far from a 'Hollywood' family - we're not rich or glamorous and we don't work in the entertainment industry. We're very real. I mean, we're so real, I can tell you I haven't washed my hair in almost two weeks. That's glamour, right there!"
Anna says their duplex is large by NYC standards "but seems to get smaller and smaller with each loud and annoying plastic toy that enters our door."
