Mama & Papa Muse with Chelsea & Brad

Mama & Papa Muse with Chelsea & Brad

Posted by Jessica Friend on

We were beyond excited to work with Brisbane high school sweethearts - Chelsea and Brad on our latest shoot with Ingrid Coles Photography. We spent the day laughing, cuddling baby Navy and capturing their daily life as Aussie parents.

Before we left, we got to squeeze in a quick Q & A to share on the journal!

Tell us a little bit about your family?

Brad and I have been together since we were sixteen. I’m a flight attendant and have a small lash extension business and Brad is a busy stay at home dad. We have two beautiful daughters Morrissey who is three and Navy who is seven weeks now.  

How has  babywearing helped you?

I don’t think a day has gone by since Navy was born that we haven’t worn her in a Chekoh. She’s happiest snuggled up on our chests and Mo is happiest when our hands are free to play with her. So it’s a win win.


When or where is your favourite time to wear your little one?

Definitely our sunset walks as a family.


What has been the highlight of your journey through parenthood so far?

There have been countless beautiful moments, but my favourite would have to be when our girls met for the first time. My heart just melts seeing them together.
