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.....


  1. Stunningly beautiful. Everyone should have style from an early age, no?

  2. Wow, blast from the past! I was just peeking at Cup of Jo blog and noted your unique, memorable name in the credits. Immediate recollection pointed to us attending Camp Ketcha together back in the 70's...then I clicked though and see Maine as one of your places. I look forward to checking out your blog and work! If you glean my email (not sure how that works) from the publication of this comment and are thusly inclined, zap me an email! I went by Kim Dutton/ Kim Spencer as a kiddo.
