Lulu and Pip Book Launch and Giveaway

One of the best things about having worked either with my children or by myself these past several years as an actor and print model has been the artists and community I have been able to connect with.

I met Stephanie Rausser 7 years ago when she was shooting Ella for Pottery Barn. Her energy is infectious and her photography is breathtaking.

Her first collaboration with doll maker Jess Brown and writer Nina Gruener was an instant classic. Kiki and Coco in Paris still gets pulled out at our house and read over and over.

Lucky for us these 3 amazing women got together again for a second book.20140505-201319.jpg

Lulu and Pip

The story of a city girl, Lulu, finding her way in the big outdoors with her sidekick Pip.


I was at the book launch this past Saturday and purchased my own signed copy. Stephanie wanted to give another signed copy away to an Our Urban Playground reader! Woop Woop!
