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


Sofia: Looking over at my Polaroid camera longingly, you beamed with joy when I let you push the shutter button over and over.  You didn't even care that film wasn't popping out anymore, the simple joy of the flash firing was enough for you.  We spent the next twenty or so minutes taking pictures of each other and practicing our best "say cheese!" PS- every time I hear the phrase, "say cheese!" I can't help but think of this and laugh.

Alba: Sweet, newly-turned four month old.  I can't get over how much you're changing daily.  It has been so exciting to see bits of your sister, bits of me, bits of Papa shine through.  It's like a surprise daily to see what's in store for us next. You've been drooling like a water faucet and everyone thinks it's pretty darn hilarious - I'm wondering if this is the precursor to some brand new baby teeth?

PS- thanks to all of you on your super sweet encouragement and heartfelt comments on yesterday's post. I was in no way expecting that sort of support, my heart is full to the brim. I feel so much better just letting it all out sometimes, no matter how raw and un-pretty it is. When I feel that when I can write with honesty from a place that is close to my heart, everything is going to be okay. Hope you're all ready to start enjoying your weekends - I know I am!


  1. Aww wonderful photos :) ps: I have the same polaroid camera :)

  2. Your children are perfect.. and so is that Polaroid camera, the colour is great!

  3. What precious faces. I love how children find enjoyment in the things we so often take for granted. You've captured that joy so well :)

  4. i love these photos! perfection, kate :)

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…

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…
