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


Sofia: Just over the past week you've started speaking in sentences that I never thought were possible from such a tiny person. You're quick to remind your sister to "top touching my zebra!" and making me incredibly proud with your exclamations of "mumma I GOTTA GO!" Potty training is well underway in our household and has been going very well. I'm not trying to get my hopes up for anything too soon, but I will say that I've never been more excited to see pairs of My Little Pony underwear strewn about and less dirty diapers in my wastebasket.  Success!

Alba: My sweet, ever so worried little girl. Your facial expressions just slay me when I take you somewhere new, when you hear an unfamiliar noise, (especially) when your papa talks in his scary funny voice or your sister cries at the top of her lungs. Oh my heart! You look to me for reassurance and your eyebrows furrow in the adorable anxiety of it all. I'm sure you'll be more like me, with your fidgeting and uneasy moments. Quiet and keen on cuddles, we are all relishing in every minute of watching your story unfold.


  1. Your children are so precious. I love the way you capture their emotion! :) makes me teary

  2. I can't believe how big Alba is getting! Looking so much older!

  3. love that little serious face!

  4. you're such an awesome mama. beautiful babes. as always.

  5. Your black and whites are so perfect! I adore that one of Sofia so much. It's amazing to hear them speak in sentences already! Some of the things that Chloe says just crack me up. xx

  6. These are ABSOLUTELY gorgeous, Kate! And your writing is beautiful, as always.

  7. These are the best, Kate. You've captured them so well.

  8. Precious, such beautiful shots and words xx

  9. What a gorgeous baby and those worlds of yours... Nice!!!

  10. We are starting potty training and it's so daunting. How long have you been potty training/what method are you using? Love the photos per usual. :)

  11. oh my loooord, the cuteness! Alba's personality is so clear in this shot. I love hearing how happy they make you xx

  12. Love the black and white theme. Divine photos of your gorgeous girls, as always. Boy I wish we could all meet up!

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 Niño 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…

Hi friends. I wanted to take a minute to catch up together and fill you in on a few new things! To anyone new to our space, thank you for visiting and I'm glad you're here. You may have noticed the look around the blog has been much simpler and clean. It's something I'm trying to do not only in just the blog, but with my life itself... a bit of a spring-cleaning, if you will. My Facebook feed filled with "friends" I haven't talked to in ages, a twitter name that no one could pronounce or understand, blog columns and categories I couldn't keep up with, even pressure to post when I know I should just be enjoying my time with my family. The list is seeming never-ending for a lot of us out there, and I just wanted to be honest and say that I too have gotten "stuck" one time or another, and here's a few things I did to streamline my way out of it:

• Keep as many things cons…
