A young family of adventurers living by the sea

New Here?

First comes love, then comes a baby?! It's not normally how things happen, but it did for us. 



Max and Mummy is a parenting blog based in Bournemouth. What started as an outlet for post-natal depression has turned into a collection of memories for our young family. Me and Scott met in our first year of university and within a year we had a home, baby, jobs and degrees. Whilst it may not have been the most conventional way, we wanted to prove to ourselves and society that young parents aren't a stereotype.

Since starting blogging we have raised awareness and challenged how society perceives young parents. We've spoken on TV, in newspapers, and even challenged MP's in parliament about everything from benefits to maternity discrimination. We've teamed up with the Young Women's Trust and the Equality and Human Rights Commission on various campaigns aimed at young people and parents.

We want to prove that having a child young isn't the end of your life, that being told to quit your job because you are pregnant isn't the end of your career, and no matter the circumstance you can achieve your dream. 


I am Laura and I am 26, a senior bookseller, freelance social media manager, photography graduate and an aspiring author. I've recently retrained with Digital Mums to give me a career that really works for our family. I'm normally found behind the camera and spending too much time on social media or watching box sets.

I love anything interiors and bookish, love spending too much money at Ikea and I'm a total Disney addict. I've just finished my time on the advisory panel for the Young Women's Trust. It's made me more outspoken and passionate about young women's rights and I've been campaigning ever since. It's led me to be on TV, radio and various places online talking about my experiences and I've spoken at conferences and in parliament about how important things such as maternity discrimination.



Scott is 27, a tech addict and a scriptwriting graduate who wants to make hit comedy shows for British TV. He's a phone shop assistant manager and is always researching the next big thing tech wise. He's an aspiring beer connoisseur and loves nothing more than to stick a box set on with a pizza. When he's not doing that you can normally find him playing American Football outside with Max (Seahawks fan for life) or attempting to play guitar.


Finally the man himself! Max is 6, full of energy, music addict, aspiring rockstar or west end star and in year 1. He loves going on wild adventures, building Lego houses and trying to save the day like any superhero would. Being obsessed with Disney, we are normally singing along to a soundtrack at full blast or pretending that we are on a west end stage. He's the life and soul of the family. Always on the go and definitely lives up to his Wild Thing namesake.


We are a PR friendly blog and have worked with many brands on different levels from competitions to reviews and sponsored posts. We love building up long term relationships with brands and pride ourselves on fantastic photography and copy that will whisk readers away. We are also just starting to use video as a way of capturing our escapades.
