Dôen and Ergobaby

Photography by Nicki Sebastian, and film photography by Phoebe and Helen

 

"For us, the experience of birth and parenthood was one of newfound empowerment – a reminder of our capacity to create, and a spark that ignited a new zest and passion in us both. It was with this feeling in our minds and hearts, amidst the chaos and magic of those newborn days, that we dreamt up the idea for Dôen (MK’s son Julian was only two weeks old when we first drafted our plan for the business!).

As we have navigated the parallel journeys of raising our kids and growing our business throughout the years, we have often found ourselves with hands full, joyfully juggling it all. In our busiest moments, Ergobaby’s carriers have truly been a godsend: a practical and invaluable gift that in so many ways aligned with the vision of parenthood to which have always aspired. The carriers awarded us the freedom to hold both parenthood and career together as one, carrying our babies close every step of the way. From MK’s first trip out of the house to take Julian to the beach, to KK’s very first solo-with-a-baby trip to France for our Fall 2019 photoshoot in France, Ergobaby has been there to support us through some of our greatest milestones as parents and as business owners.

We are so thrilled to have collaborated with Ergobaby’s team to put our own touch on their most beloved carriers, each one ergonomically designed to hold your baby safely and comfortably to your chest or back as you go about your day – taking them with you wherever you may go. Made to last for years and years to come (we personally have shared the same carrier between five babies over the past nine years!), these carriers are an unbelievable gift, allowing not only for new levels of bonding, but also for the freedom and – perhaps – the empowerment that comes with the comfort of free hands and a happy baby. See below for a look behind the scenes of our shoot with the Ergobaby team in Ojai, as well as some photos of our family wandering through the Arroyo with our carriers (the kids love to wear them too!) and click here to shop!"
