  So back in February Karyn Thurston of the blog Girl of Cardigan wrote this awesome post that knocked our socks off. With poetic grace, Karyn brought "the catbird seat" (the phrase our company is named after) to life. And this project was born. [caption id="attachment_760" align="aligncenter" width="640"]PORTLAND_SHOOT_5 Karyn smiles for the camera, while Liz, our director, makes sure that Clark doesn't fall down while perched on the stair railing.[/caption] Since Karyn is based in Portland, OR, we decided to shoot there. Karyn hooked us up with her friend, filmmaker Liz Vice (who sings beautifully in addition to making amazing films) and we got to work. Making a video was a new endeavor for us. We learned so much along the way. At first we were nervous about taking on this kind of project, but by the end, we knew we had created something special.

We hope you agree that it shows both moms, dads and babies in the place of best advantage—the catbird seat. From convenience, to connection, to mobility; from comfort, to security, to freedom—there’s no better place to be.

My favorite was the family scene in the woods, discovering things together.

I love the flower scene with sunset mei tai! Love doing that in the garden with baby! The nature of color and fragrance are best source of wisdom and creativity!
