Love is in the Mix



When I first got the call from the publisher asking if I’d be interested in shooting the cover and inside images of Kate’s upcoming cookbook, I was extremely honored. But I have to admit I wasn’t completely sold on the idea at first…

First of all, the twins were still infants and I was still breastfeeding, so the logistics of driving to Kate’s house and shooting all day were tricky.

But also, posing LARGE families is not really my forte – when I get inquiries for large extended family type shoots I generally decline.   So when I heard that they wanted a shot of all NINE of them for the cover my first thought was just that this isn’t a project for me!   But then, when I learned more about the project and that the whole book was geared towards MAKING FAMILY MEMORIES and connection in the kitchen I realized that this was actually the perfect project for me!

And as a twin mama, I have to admit I was completely in awe of the way Kate manages her large brood. It was absolute pleasure to spend the day in the Kitchen with Kate and her Eight and I hope to get the chance to do it again sometime.

For anyone interested the book is available on Amazon – I’m still waiting for my copy from the publisher, I can’t WAIT to get my hands on it!
