Big thanks to everyone in the photo department at Patagonia, Inc. (especially photo editor Cameron Tambakis & samples coordinator Andrew Marshall) for supporting my photography and our family adventures. I could not imagine putting any other technical clothing on these wild kids. The kids' line simply works for every part of our lifestyle and all our outdoor pursuits.

Family Business: Innovative On-Site Child Care Since 1983
By Malinda Chouinard & Jennifer Ridgeway

What an honor to have some images included in Malinda Chouinard & Jennifer Ridgeway's new book Family Business: Innovative On-Site Child Care Since 1983. I feel so fortunate to work with a company that values family as much as Patagonia does. 

Since my first child was born, the staff at the photo department at Patagonia have always given me the support I needed to pursue my career as a photographer, follow our path of family adventures, and bring my own kids to work with me. So grateful for this company and its values. Hoping very much other corporations follow this healthy initiative. When it comes to work, parents should not have to choose between career and family.

Thank you to Patagonia, Inc. for supporting my photography & our lifestyle of family adventure.  All three of my kids have lived 24/7/365 in the kids' technical gear since birth. It works for all our pursuits as a family - both on land & out at sea.

"Southern Ocean, Family Style" - Story & Photos by Somira Sao

A story I wrote in 2013 (just after Pearl's birth) appears in the current issue of Cruising World (USA).

The 8-page spread documents a 30-day non-stop family passage we made aboard Anasazi Girl in the Southern Ocean in April 2012 from the Cape of Good Hope (Simons Town), South Africa to Fremantle, Western Australia . At that time, Tormentina and Raivo were ages 3 and 1.

The story and the type of sailing you experience at this latitude is without a doubt some of the most difficult and challenging you can take on. It takes a certain level of sailing experience, risk management skill, the right kind of boat, crew & conditions, as well as a very high mental & physical threshold for discomfort.

Tough is tough, but when the sailing here is good, it's really damn good. It's that feeling you ride long after the voyage is over.

Thanks to editors Mark Pillsbury & Jennifer Brett for supporting our sailing program and a big thanks to Dave Weaver for his work on the story layout.
