Carly Connors with her mum Rachel, and brother Jackson

On my last visit to New York I had the privilege of meeting the lovely Rachel Roberge Connors & her beautiful daughter Carly on a shoot at Molly Magnuson’s studio in Brooklyn. Carly is incredibly shy in person, but in front of a camera she transforms into a bright shiny star. Rachel and Carly live with husband and dad Skip, and sports enthusiast son and brother Jackson. Watching Carly’s transformation to confident model in front of the camera makes it easier to believe she stars alongside Nicole Kidman in the eagerly anticipated movie version of the number one selling novel The Goldfinch.

Interview with Kristin Coia designer and founder of Go Gently Nation

Kristin Coia designer and founder of Go Gently Nation lives in Manhattan Beach, CA with husband Henry, her son, also called Henry, 10 yrs old and a daughter, Katherine (Kit), 7 yrs old.

Henry is an old soul, protector of all living things and his Mom too. He is kind, compassionate and full of goodness. He is a loving little boy that may never ever grow up (Kristin’s little Peter Pan). He tells me “he will never go far away from home”.

Kit. Well she is a redhead, need I say more!? She took every ounce of my energy since the day she was born. She is more determined than any human I have ever met and will fight for her cause till the end. She is the cutest little girl however and her darling voice, and spirit for life will make you melt. Before even realizing it, you are woven into her little web. She will be a leader someday, and how very proud I already am of her!
