The Worm Family has its Picture Taken | Family Photo Promotion

Several weeks ago, I received an email from my friend Francine of The Voracious Reader – a wonderful children’s bookstore with whom I’ve partnered many times over the years. Francine served the Westchester community in her brick-and-mortar shop in Larchmont for 12 years, and is now continuing that service online. She had just gotten word of a new book that was to be published in May that made her think of me.  (It’s funny how kindred spirits/businesses find each other, isn’t it?)

The book, titled “The Worm Family has its Picture Taken” is beyond adorable. It chronicles a family of worms as they plan and agonize over their first family photo session, and (spoiler alert!) eventually allow their well chosen photographer to help them relax, be themselves, and take the most perfect and unique family photos that are reflection of their own family story.

I was amazed – honestly, it’s as if this as if this clever author and wonderful illustrator read all my rantings and created this masterpiece just for me.  Hooray for worms, and hooray for celebrating and capturing every family’s unique story!

I’m including some peeks inside the book, but before you scroll and become enchanted, listen up — to advance the cause of independent booksellers, small businesses and unique families everywhere, Francine and I will be offering $50 off a newly booked full family or newborn session with ME to anyone who purchases this wonderful book between now and July 1st using THIS link. Just send me a photo of the packing slip and let’s find a date.


Would it be overly self-serving to also give a big three cheers for Mr. Muskrat?  I think not.

Thanks for looking,
