baby&me magazine { blue world }

WE got the cover - WOW
I conceived and art-directed this story and it appears in the febuary issue of baby & me  a british parenting/fashion/lifestyle magazine.   the talented photographer alli cottrill shot it. we put together an all-star  team of freelancers and made it happen on a wintery day in jan. in portland,maine. 
the story was the culmination of many things. 
when we were living in the netherlands, i very much wanted to work on a kids' fashion shoot, but it never happened. instead, i began this blog and organized my posts by color. my title for the story was BLAUW KIDS( dutch for blue) - all of the wardrobe -styled by 
melissa dunne was inspired by the color blue and was one of the themes running thru.
this fall i did a blog post on heather chontos and her artwork & studio. her love of bold color and gift for creating spaces - made me want to do a kids' shoot in her studio using her paintings as backgrounds. she agreed & it was the icing on the cake.
some of the  images ( below) didn't make it into the story in the magazine so i've included them here.
 a few of the lines represented on the kids: Seam, Fleur & Dot, Ted Baker, Marni, Catamini, Zara, Bonpoint, Anais & I, Ikks, Jcrewcuts.....
