Photo Booth Photos

The Constructor Craft Fair took place on Sunday in my neighborhood. I’ll have a recap soon, but first here are some photos taken in the Magnolia Photo Booth at the show.

I went with just Eleanor at first, but then Brandon came out a little later and we were able to get the three of us. Those baby sunglasses crack me up.

    Love your haircut. You don’t happen to have a good photo of the whole style do you? Looks like you went dark again.

    Your family is so cute!

      It’s still red, but a little darker. There are tons of pictures on flickr.

    The ones of the three of you goofing about are adorable!

    I hope those baby shades are UV filtering. Not sure if it’s still the case, but kids sunglasses used to always be ultra cheapo and not be UV filtering… which is terrible since wearing sunglasses makes your pupils dilate, so if there’s no filtering, it’s letting in more of the harmful rays.

      Thanks, I hadn’t realized. I looked them up though (they’re from Baby Gap) and they do have UVA and UVB protection.

    oh my gosh, so cute.

    and your haircut is so adorable. it’s very fun and suiting for you! with your shorter hair, you remind me of the girl from ‘the bird and the bee’ sometimes (or maybe not, i don’t know).

    These pictures are great! I’d like to know what you are eating and how much exercise you are doing to lose the weight too! I lost 50 pounds in two months after having my son, but have been stuck at the same weight for 5 straight months since then! ahhhhh!

    Also, which carrier are you using in the picture?

    not to be too personal, but you look like you’ve lost weight. i know this is on your 30 before 30 list, but i can see it more in your face and neckline. be encouraged if you’re trying- it’s starting to show.

      I am glad that you got to experience one of my photo booths. Sadly I was not in Chicago at the construction fair personally. My sister Alex T turned me on to your blog and it’s fab. let me know if you ever want to take more pics, I can set up your own private photo booth session if needed.
