Looking for a great story this summer…check out the new book, Just Cate, which as co-authors Angela Martin and Noelle Alix note, “is a dual memoir and story of lifelong friendship, of being there for each other through it all. When Noelle’s daughter Cate was born with Down Syndrome, we unknowingly began our second stage of growing up. Discovering little by little that it’s the simple things that matter most. And so life continues, the road behind us and the road ahead of us. Forever friends, forever changed.”
Last year I photographed Cate in her blue robe holding her favorite fruit for the cover shot of Just Cate and it’s been great getting to know their families! I love how the cover came out with it’s beautiful design from Liz Panke. I recently spent a day traveling with Noelle and Angela to Angela’s parents’ home in the Hudson Valley to be videotaped and interviewed about the project. In fact, that videotape was for B.I.G., an organization of women who are working on the next stage of the careers, going back to work after kids, completely changing what they want to do in life, growing their businesses…or like Angela and Noelle, driving a 10-year writing project to completion.
A huge congratulations to Noelle and Angela and Cate!! You can order Just Cate at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble or direct from their website: justcate.com.
