There are some Instagram clichés we’ve had enough of. The Brunch Shot. The “Plotting xx” caption that accompanies a photograph of the perfect frothy coffee and a neat notebook. However, we love the Insta-mum – the mother who shares her beautiful intimate family moments online. Total Awwwww fodder.
How these fabulous mummies manage to juggle phenomenal jobs, a healthy lifestyle and an inspiring life for their children is beyond our frazzled expertise. But we’re glad they’re sharing all the candid moments. Love, kindness and joy through heart-throbbing pictures – sign us up. Here are some Insta-mums we love.

Jools Oliver is a very busy mummy, and she was one of the first Insta-mums as we know it. Her three wonderful girls are all named after flowers, and the youngest only boy is called Buddy. You couldn’t get a better family vibe than the Oliver family one. From dressing up to helping dad in the kitchen, the children stay busy and creative. @Joolsoliver
