MOON RIVER OVER MIDTOWN, AND HUCK THE CATERPILLAR


we are so excited to be featured on the small fry blog today! we made this little video in midtown back in april when the girls were in town for the bugaboo launch, with jenner brown of lumineux films. we love it so much! we are so lucky to have such a beautiful memento of this exact moment in our lives with our beautiful little boy. jenner was the greatest, he is so talented and so much fun to talk to over the course of the shoot. and obviously the whole weekend with the girls was just about the most fun ever. thank you, small fry!

and now, for huck.
isn't this ridiculous? huck was asked to be part of real simple magazine's round up of cutest kids' halloween costumes earlier this summer. doesn't he make for a very roguishly handsome bookworm? the shoot took place in tribeca over the summer and it was so much fun. (so much work, being a stage mom!) huck is a natural, the goof. i think i fall more in love with that turkey by the minute.

you can see more adorable kids in costumes at real simple HERE, and read more from our day with the small fry girls HERE.

  7. In a non-freakish, completely innocent way, I am totally smitten with you two. I love to watch your love. My boys are older now and we didn't have the technology... Instagram/blog love like we do now. Meaning, there is no way they would let me constantly post pics of them present day! It takes me back to a time when mine would let me nuzzle on their neck and hold their wee little hands. This video is just the sweetest and the music is perfection. Btw, those lashes...

  10. I may have shed a little tear watching that video. How beautiful and romantic and just sweet it is to be raising your boy in your city the way that you are.*



    *not that it isn’t without trials, but they are, in life, a given.

  11. 1. Huck as a caterpillar forever, please. 2. I've said it before but will say it again, if you ever need an industry recs/advice/thoughts, please don't hesitate! Been at this biz since I was little, and am now business coaching other actors as a side gig. Plus I think I've just got a secret dream of Huck the Actor that I'm holding on to ;) Love the blog name change and overall look, as always.

    1. haha it's a funky bug from the URL swap! normally it looks muuuuch prettier. we're on it we're on i! you CAN use nRelate for ads but we don't. we've just been using it instead of linkwithin because it's more customizable if you want a prettier look. blerg blerg technical difficulties. ;)

  27. this little video made my two year old daughter hop out of the tub to watch it on the bathmat next to me. she giggled and my eyes teared up... i can't help but feel a little silly, but the "two drifters off to see the world" always makes me cry.

    such a precious way to capture such memories.

  28. Hi Natalie Jean! I've been reading your blog for at least a year now and this is my first comment (that I remember; sorry, I'm a slacker)! Love the new site!

    And this little video? So beautiful. Every mom should be so lucky to have a film crew document a day out with her child and produce such a magical keepsake. I couldn't help but think your lil guy is the luckiest boy in the world. My teary eyes made me want to tell you thanks for sharing.
