"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Sofia - Running from the tide at our first beach trip of the summer. 
Alba - Doing what she does best.

We fittingly celebrated the first days of summer by taking a trip to the beach, the four of us.  It still doesn't get old saying that! Alba sleeps most of the day until she decides she'd like a snack of milk or realizes gas bubbles are on par with the world ending. Sofia's fear of sand has vanished, and she is determined to swim by herself though she hasn't the slightest clue of how to do it yet. It's amazing watching her throw herself into the water, smile on her face and sand in her hair.

Favorites this week:
• Cole telling his mum to "stop!"
• A beautiful birthday girl
• Eleanor and Felix looking gorgeous in the summertime
• The ever striking Biet

Linking up with Jodi from Che & Fidel


  1. I am just a little, slightly, bit jealous of your warm beach-y weather!

  2. she is so precious. I've been quite absent over the past wee while but absolutely loving your pictures of sweet Alba and especially the two girls together. Sisters are so special. xx

  3. Oh man. I can't wait to take Lotus to the beach!

  4. these are fantastic! living a good 4 hours from any beach is like a slow form of torture for us when summer comes. little kiddos belong on the sandy shores!

  5. Ah the fear of sand. E was the same, we went to the beach many times with her in socks and shoes and her bathing suit because she couldn't hand the feel of sand between her toes! Jealous of your sunshine, it's freezing here!

  6. Oh Kate your pictures are, as ever, simply stunning. Sofia's joy shines through x

  7. Snuggled in with Daddy, so sweet x

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El NiƱo weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)

And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
