About Lola's Child

Hi there! I’m Alexa, but most people know me as Lola! I’m a 32-year old writer, photographer, and mama-to-be new mama, living in the Northern Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.

On the most basic level, this blog is about truth. I want to put an honest voice out there to give others something to relate to, or at the very least, something that inspires them to be confident in their own truth. I give you the real, inside scoop poop on life as a mama. Just like life, sometimes my confessions will send you into a laughing fit, and sometimes you may just nod in tears. Either way, you can expect a whole lot of TMI.

The name Lola’s Child is meant to have double meaning (though that’s probably not very obvious) given my life is about two things right now: my actual child, and my brainchild (my writing and photography career).

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you stay and read a while! Feel free to comment or shoot me an email! You can subscribe by email (on the left-hand side of the blog) to receive alerts to new posts.

If you dig back into my archives, you will find that this blog used to be quite different. Though my blog has most definitely grown into something entirely new, I decided to leave all those years of writing intact here, because it is where I began.
