Here’s a bit from Sarah about the shoot:
Meredith, Eva, and I had a wonderful morning adventure in Brooklyn that started in a nearby park, and led up to the roof deck of their building. I loved hearing Meredith’s travel stories, and was so inspired to hear how much she had already traveled with the little one! Also, Eva is just about the most easy-going baby I’ve ever met – her smiling ways get me right here (in the heart).
Names: Meredith and Eva
Neighborhood: Boerum Hill
Ages of Kids: 1 year in 2 weeks! (Sept 18 is her birthday)
2 Favorites Places in Brooklyn to hang out with your kids: Carroll Gardens library and Artscetera’s “Open Play”. A close second would be Cobble Hill park.
Special interests / hobbies / passions (of yours): I’m a writer, so I enjoy live readings in the neighborhood (BookCourt is wonderful for that; plus they have a reading series for children) and when all the stars align, I’ll spend a few hours at a cafe on my own work. I frequently stay up way too late with a book, knowing full well I need to get up at the crack of dawn with Eva. And along with Eva’s father and uncle, I run a budget travel site (www.EuroCheapo.com), so travel is a huge passion in our household. This fall, we will be taking Eva overseas for the first time. I know she likely won’t remember it, but I’m so excited that she’s now officially part of the crazy ride.
Anything you would like to say to your kids? Yes, two things. 1) I would do anything for you. Seriously. Anything. 2) You are allowed to be and do whatever makes you happiest. Always.
