Sarah Nicole Landry is chasing both motherhood and a career as a content creator — and she’s happy even without a balance between the two.
The Canadian influencer, also known as The Birds Papaya, graces the cover of Swagger's special Mother’s Day edition. Landry, 34, poses with her husband Shane and two of their children for the issue, all of them sharply dressed in monochromatic beige business casual outfits.
Hundreds of fans shared their love for the Guelph, Ont.-based content creator on Instagram.
“WOAH! Unreal,” wrote 29-year-old model Hunter McGrady. “Such a gorgeous family.”
“You’re goals!” penned fellow fashion influencer Deddeh Howard. “So beautiful.”
“Omg this is FIRE!” one fan raved.
“Wow,” another person replied. “I LOVE the cover and you look absolutely stunning with suspenders.”
“You are gloriously stunning and your family is compassion and love personified,” someone commented.
“The Papaya Podcast” host dove deep into finding self-love and confidence for her Swagger cover story, hurdles she found challenging to overcome when she started her blog as a 23-year-old mother of two.
“I tried to be this picturesque mom, and have this picturesque family,” Landry explained. “I thought that my body had to be a certain way. I went on this quest to lose all of this weight, only to find myself absolutely miserable in a marriage that had failed, and in a body that was small; yet I was keeping myself small and away from my life, and away from my world.”
But Landry eventually showed up for herself, transforming into an advocate for self-love and body positivity while forging her own path to self-confidence.
“I am happy,” she added, “and I love being both a mom and career woman, and I'm happy to chase both and allow grace through that duality.”
