To say that this was a labor of love would be the understatement of my life. My wife Katie and I are so delighted to share that our first daughter Willow Grace Peloquin was born at 1am Sunday April 28th, 2019.
“Dear Daughter” is a poem we created while she was in the womb as a gift to welcome her into the world. It's about preparing for one the greatest unknowns we've ever come up against. How to find hope amidst the fear and ready ourselves to become more than we were. It's a little over 4 mins. We hope you enjoy it and, if you do, please do comment and pass it along.
Special thanks to the following people for making this video happen:
Ted Maniatakos for filming and editing the project at our home in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Greg Tiefenbrunun and Andy Green at Duotone Audio for sound design and mix.
Andrew Pandolfino at Nice Shoes for the color correct.
Helios / Keith Kenniff for the music.
Dan Burt for music supervision
And our famous feline Betty, for being such a good sport on the shoot.
They say the future is feminine and we agree. Grateful to have WIllow Grace here to help lead the charge.
