Small Fry Films : Brooklyn Heights

Part of our tour of New York City was a quick stop to Brooklyn Heights to see Kelsey Nixon. Kelsey has had a whirlwind couple of years, landing her own show on the Cooking Channel called “Kelsey’s Essentials”, giving birth to her first baby, Oliver, and even scoring a Daytime Emmy nomination (nominated with Ina Garten and Giada Di Laurentiis), there’s no arguing Kelsey is busy!

One of the many things we love about Kelsey is that she has a contagious zest for life. Her passion for food bubbles over and inspires. Cooking is her love language, and we loved catching a glimpse of her sharing that with her family. Check out her interview filmed by Jenner Brown of Lumineux Films:

It seems that every parent has a special labor of love that they enjoy doing for their family. Where they go that extra mile because they enjoy doing it: It may be taking beautiful photos, a special Saturday breakfast, assembling a bicycle, a creative scrapbook, or like Kelsey, a delicious meal. We’d love to know, what’s yours?

Catch up with Kelsey on her websiteFacebookPinterestTwitter and @kelseynixon on Instagram.

      I think it’s Holly Maher, but we’re waiting on Jenner to get back from Paris so we can ask him. Hah!

    This is great! My favorite part is when she says she doesn’t know if she’ll ever have the answer to figuring out the balance between work and family, but that every day she gets up and tries the best she can. Such an important message.

    So cute, Kelsey! Oliver is such a doll baby. It’s so fun to see our beautiful city represented as a wonderful place to raise happy, healthy children—we love it so much, too. Beautiful, beautiful video. Of course I teared up. 🙂
