Book Week!

It seems rather unbelievable to me, but Naptime with Theo and Beau officially comes out tomorrow. This beautiful story-that I sometimes have a hard time believing actually is my life-has taken a tangible form to reach the rest of the world that so adores these two little loves of ours. The scope and scale of what has been happening is beyond my mental reality meter.


It’s here though and this book is very real. It is my heart and love for these babies, my family, my art form of photography all wrapped up in one adorable package that the team at Macmillan/Feiwel & Friends has so perfectly put together in this gorgeous book. I couldn’t be more proud of the way it turned out, and I truly hope that those feelings and that pride is conveyed to all of you when you see it. Coupled with the donations to the Santa Cruz SPCA via a portion of profits, that would be the ultimate accomplishment for me through this project.


This process has been mind boggling. The support that I’ve seen from my friends, family and blogging community is has overwhelmed me in the best way. I am humbled and completely honored to see this book appearing on the websites and social channels of highly esteemed colleagues and close friends.

This week will be incredible. What a ride this has been. Thank you all so much for your love and support throughout this process. I couldn’t be more grateful.


If you’d like a signed bookplate from Theo, Beau and myself, you can order the books by any of these retailers here and upload your receipt by following this link here:
