Katie Hintz-Zambrano is an S.F.-based journalist by way of NYC. Her work has been seen in Marie Claire, Style.com, Vogue.com, Elle.com, GQ.com, Nylon, i-D, New York Magazine, Details, StyleList.com, and many others. She was most recently the Senior West Coast Editor of Refinery29.com, where she launched the San Francisco edition in 2011.
Immediately after having her first child — a son, Diego — in April 2013, Katie noticed a gaping hole in the market for a full-service, style-leaning parenting site. After meeting James on a press trip later that year, the two hit it off and exchanged information. A month later, Katie dialed up James to get some feedback on her business idea. Lo and behold, James had been mulling over a similar site. And, that brings us to the birth of Mother.
James Kicinski-McCoy is a Nashville-based blogger, photographer, and mother of four. In 2008, while living in Texas, James launched the blog Bleubird to correspond with her online shop of the same name. Here and there, she would add personal stories and photographs of her children, which resonated with her growing audience, who requested more. After closing her vintage shop in 2011, James morphed her site into a chronicle of her growing family, which includes two boys (Julian and Sailor) and two girls (Milla Plum and Birdie).
Bleubirdblog.com is now one of the leading lifestyle blogs on the web, filled with posts on fashion (for kids and adults), beauty, food, and more. Her social media channels are also cult-followed. Appealing to readers beyond the typical “mommy blogger” demographic, she’s partnered with the likes of Stella McCartney, Barney’s NY, Madewell, Land of Nod, Bugaboo, and Gap on a variety of projects.
