Amber Fife, photographer and mother to a 1, 4 and 6-year-old, shot KIDS’ first photo shoot and said she was honored to be a part of the collaborative project.
Fife said the photos have a spring feel and she tried to make all the clothes pop.
“I love that the magazine is a blend and there is something for the little ones to the big kids,” she said.
Mary Webb, mother to a 2, 5, 7, 9 and 11-year-old, said she also was excited about the calendar of events and hoped in the future, the magazine would include a list of restaurants that offer kids’ specials.
Even though it was her dream, the development of KIDS was a community effort, Collins said.
Kyle Allison, general manager of Andy Alligators, said Andy Alligators wanted to contribute to the magazine and launch party because it’s all about kids.
“It’s a publication that Norman needs to showcase all that it has to offer,” he said. “Andy Alligators is all about kids, so it’s a natural fit.”
Paul and Kelly Wright, EarthFruits Yogurt franchise owners who served yogurt and toppings at the launch party, said they wanted to support the magazine because kids drive their business and giving back to the community is important to them.
“Kids are some of our best customers,” Kelly Wright said. “We’re excited about the magazine.”
KIDS is available on shelves now. The next issue of KIDS will be available in August and will focus on back to school and the fall season.
