our family of four

These are our last family photos before we become a family of five. I was glad we had time to take some before the baby comes.

My sister's boyfriend, Christian Cruz, who happens to be starting his photography business, took the photographs. Both my sisters also tagged along for the show as one did my hair, she is a hair stylist, and the other just likes to take pictures and hang out with us. My baby sister is also quite the photographer, she took the first photograph below and I can't wait to see how her pictures turned out too!

These are just a few that Christian was able to send me, but I can't wait to see the whole batch! You can also see a few more on Christian's blog. Christian's experience is mostly in rock band photography, but he is working on branching out to weddings and families. He is currently working on his website, but if you are interested in your own family photos, you can send him an email at christian.cruz2021@yahoo.com. Thank you so much Christian!!! And tell your girlfriend thanks for doing my hair...


polaroid of ben and me
Of course at the end of the shoot, I had to make sure to sneak in a polaroid. Does the scenery look familiar? I just love kissing pictures because I love my Benny so much!!!

  27. thank you so much! the dress is not made by me, but was a great steal at anthropologie! i didn't know what to make myself and wasn't about to buy a maternity dress at the end of my pregnancy, so when i saw the colors of this, i knew it was perfect!

    i will be sure to share more when i get them!

  28. WOW!! I hopped on over to the photo blog, and LOVED it. You look so incredibly beautiful in those pictures! You are the most gorgeous preggers lady I've ever seen. I love love love the pictures of you and your hubby because your cuteness and happiness together makes me smile. Also, your little girls are the two cutest in the whole wide world. I found your blog through Smile and Wave quite some time ago, and had to become a regular reader because your kids are just darling (and cause of your great craftiness). I especially love the expressions on their faces when they are attached to the legs, so precious! Can't wait to meet the new little one on this blog :)u

  31. thanks so much! you really know how to boost a make a girl feel good! and seriously, i don't know what Christian did, but my legs don't feel how they look! they feel swollen all the time! if anyone in southern ca want some pictures done you should try Christian. He is starting out and so his prices are really reasonable.
