Small Fry Films : Midtown

Natalie Holbrook is one of those people that is as tiny as a pixie, truly the wind may carry her away, but everything besides her body is large. She is wickedly smart, and that brain sends her miles away before you’ve take your first step, she is a thinker in the best sense of the word. She is loyal and true and that heart of hers is bigger than her brain and worn right on her sleeve. It’s clear as day that she adores her family; Brandon her husband, and Henry her darling boy, just by looking at the glint in her eye when they’re nearby. She blogs as Natalie Jean, but with her recent blog name change, we refer to her as the artist formerly known as Nat the Fat Rat. She writes about everything from Meg Ryan movies to her on going infertility journey and anything important or fleeting in between. Born in Arizona, raised all over the world, married in Oregon, felt like a woman in Idaho, Natalie is filled with experience. So relatable, and an instant friend to many. We come back again and again because she has an unmistakable voice, and it never fails to entertain and delight us.

Our afternoon with Natalie and Henry Holbrook prancing through Columbus Circle was dreamy to say the least and we loved watching Natalie and Henry on their playground known as Manhattan.

See more of Natalie via Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest (@heynataliejean) and keep up with her as she takes on authoring her first book (due Spring 2015) on her site Natalie Jean.

Filmed by Jenner Brown of Lumineux for Small Fry.

    The most beautiful video of Natalie and that sweet Huck. She is even more gorgeous and loving than I imagined from reading Nat the Fat Rat for so long. That little video just embodies motherhood.
