podcast on Hey Brooklyn

June 12, 2009 |  Category:   press the biz


After months of rescheduling due to illness and other life stuff, I finally got together with Amber of Hey Brooklyn this week to record a podcast interview, the latest in a series of interviews with seriously cool Brooklyn peeps, some of whom are our friends (I mean c’mon…look at that lineup, how great is Brooklyn?). I’d never done an audio interview before and I think I said a lot of “ums” and “you knows”, but overall I think it went well and you can listen to it here. I confess I haven’t listened to all of it because IT IS REALLY WEIRD TO HEAR YOURSELF TALK if you’re not used to it. Amber also laughed at me because I didn’t want my picture taken. What can I say, I am not a camera loving ham like the girls.

Which brings me to these photos – how do they relate to the podcast? Mark wasn’t able to be part of the interview because he was going to be at the kitchen all day, but I really wanted a photo of the both of us posted since I’m trying to make more of an effort to make sure that people know we are a 2-person company and not just a 1 person company. We’ve been getting more requests of photos with the both of us, but if you may recall from our anniversary post, we don’t have any recent shots. But you know what I remembered? Camera self timers, hello!! So I snapped these while Mia was at school, except Claudine kept sneaking herself into the frame. We’d think we’d be safe because she was over on the other side of the room playing with her toys, but then the self timer clock would start ticking down and right before the camera snapped the picture she would suddenly be standing there, right next to us. Every single time. It was both hilarious and creepy, like “what the…how’d she…huh? How’d she get here so fast!”. So if you look at the photo that is posted on HeyBrooklyn.com, you can see Mark’s arm extended out of the frame, and at the other side of his arm is Claudine trying to push herself back in the shot.

    Claudine is too funny!

    love the last one too. it made me crack up. Was that after you kept pushing her out of the shot? She looks a bit annoyed in a totally adorable way.

    Ah, these are so great! She’s so cute. I was wondering if that photo was holding a little one at bay.

    I have a hard time listening to Hey Brooklyn, too, because it’s weird to hear MY voice! But I’m glad I got to interview you. It was fun!

    Here’s another vote for that last photo. And for how funny she is, inserting herself into every photo.

  • Lois June 12, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    And yet another vote for the last shot. Claudine is hilarious!

  • Jenna June 12, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    Erinn, yes! that was after we pushed her out. This was the final shot. I guess she decided that she’d better plant herself on that chair than get pushed out again.

    You two (three) are absolutely adorable, and I really laughed when I saw the shot on Hey Brooklyn, having read your background story. Kids have an uncanny radar for knowing when they aren’t wanted :)

    AWESOME pics! I love every one of them and Miss Claudine just makes me crack up. She’s hilarious.

    PS Way to represent for the PNW with the Evergreen shirt, Mark!

    Claudine actually did make her way into the photo on Hey Brooklyn. You can see her reflection in the TV! I love how she brings her toys with her.

  • Jenna June 13, 2009 at 10:53 am

    OMG, you are right. There’s her head on the TV. I am cracking up all over again!

    C is for character! I love that girl.

    Claudine is so sweet – she couldn’t understand why she couldn’t be part of the fun. You made me smile looking at the pictures.

  • HaeWon June 14, 2009 at 8:18 am

    What an adorable couple! You should be in photos more often. Great interview. I’m totally inspired by you guys!

  • manya June 14, 2009 at 8:30 am

    You sound exactly as I have imagined you! Very sweet! I need a favor to ask since you guys are in the business. I’m also a pastry chef, living in Greece. I have this huge project coming up for a baptism. The theme is “Luna Park”. I was thinking of making carousels for each table made out of gingerbread dough. Do you have any other ideas because I’m stuck! Thanks! As a matter of fact if anybody who reads this has a suggestion PLZ tell me!

    Hee hee – I love all of those shots – hard for adorable Claudine to imagine a photo that doesn’t have her in it! :)
