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.
