I’m Still Here

Oh, hello. Remember me? I’m still here. Sort of. Well, I’m dipping my toes in the water, at any rate.

Shortly after my most recent blog post, my kids starting transforming from little blobs who just slept and ate into… well… people, with personalities and desires for things other than just milk. They started moving and grooving and rolling around. And now they’re a few days shy of six months old, starting solids, laughing and chattering away, and oh man, do I love them. (And – surprise, surprise – they are extremely time consuming.) At any rate, my ambitions of keeping up a steady rate of blogging throughout my maternity leave were crushed, but I can’t say I’m too upset about it.

Friday I’m shooting the first of a handful of weddings this year. And I do mean only a handful. Turns out I like hanging out with my kids A LOT, so I’m only coming back to work on a very, very, very part-time basis for the time being. I also realized in the chaos, I never got to blog the last wedding I shot before maternity leave, so look out for that tomorrow.

It recently occurred to me that this is my fifth year blogging in this space. Over the years my posts have gotten increasingly less personal, and the last two years have been mostly wedding and travel related. While I don’t intend to blog about my kids/family, I do miss writing in this space, so I’d like to open it up again. I’ve been shooting a ton of personal film work lately, and I’d especially like to give that a home here. So, we’ll see what happens.

I hope you’re all having a beautiful spring. The flowers are finally blooming here in NYC.

I don’t like to share very many photos of the girls publicly – there’s a private Instagram for that if you’re a real life friend/family member – but the last photo I shared of them was just after they were born. This is what I’ve been working on for the last six months…

    Lovely. Welcome back.
    the girls are so precious. Can we meet up for coffee one day so I can see you and them live?

  • “Hiiiii!!!!” (waving at you from Chicago) CUTIES!!!

  • Heather

    Hi girls! And Katie!

  • Jasmine Eaglin

    Katie! They’re beautiful! Hope you’re enjoying motherhood!

    Big hugs,
    Jasmine & Aloysius

  • Congratulations Katie! We have a little boy exactly the same age, he just turned 6 months today! It’s so much fun and we have to cherish every moment!

  • Oh they are ADORABLE…. And at 6 months you’ll be kept on your toes when they start to crawl soon. Motherhood is amazing and exhausting and double for you. Congrats. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane
