Today we have the privilege of hearing from, Kayla Gane, a local mama and daughter of Kendall, our LuvmeEco founder. Kayla is mum to an adorable blue-eyed, dimple-cheeked toddler named Vera and a businesswoman who runs a photography studio called Erah Studio. Kayla leads a beautiful, family-focused life and has so much gold to share. Let’s dive in!
To get to know you a little bit, can you tell us Kayla, what’s one thing that makes you feel alive?
Ocean swims for sure! With the whole family!
We love following along on your socials and watching Vera grow. She’s just a delight! How has motherhood changed you?
In so many ways…it’s definitely made me slowwww down, which I love! It’s also made me appreciate time with people so much more.
That newborn phase might seem like a blur now but what would you say are your top three newborn essentials that you couldn’t have lived without?
Good nappies! Pandas Not just saying this to boast but having good nappies definitely eases the pressures of newborn days (not as many poop explosions haha) and no nappy rash! A white noise machine and silver nipple shields saved my nipples!
Motherhood sure has its ups and downs, doesn’t it? What has been the hardest part of motherhood and how did you deal with it?
Not having much time to myself and to spend on my businesses! I’ve definitely had to take a step back from doing as much in my business, which has definitely been the biggest struggle, but on the flipside I absolutely love being a mama and spending the days with Vera. Also, some days the sleep is hard! Haha
Being a busy mum and creative, how do you not lose yourself in it all?
It’s definitely a juggle I think being comfortable in the uncomfortable moments is key — I’m only just learning to do this! Also just being okay that the to-do list will never be done! :)
Thanks so much for sharing with us, Kayla. We know what you shared will resonate with so many mamas.

Postpartum is a wild time… you’re in a baby bubble, flooded with so much oxytocin yet you’ve never been so exhausted. You are getting to know this tiny human that you brought into the world but you’re still discovering who you are as a mother. You have a deep sense of love that came so naturally but you also feel like maybe you don’t really know what you’re doing. So many beautiful paradoxes make up that post birth period.
Ah, bath time with your little bundle of joy – it's a splashy adventure filled with giggles, bubbles, and a whole lot of cuteness! Orrrr depending on the day, it could be a screaming, get it over as quick as possible nightmare! You just never know with babies haha! We do know this for certain, that our bath time essentials make whatever kind of bath time it is easier.
