Friar Tux Feature

Well this was way too cool not to share.

My pictures I took for my bros prom last year were featured on Friar Tux Shops blog today! Take a look!

Location: Mission San Juan Capistrano
Photographer: Alaina Kraning of A Kreative Kraning
Friar Tux Shop Selection: Black Lorenzo Tuxedo

Mission San Juan Capistrano couldn’t be a more perfect place for a prom photo shoot! Kalen and Celest were lucky to be shot by Kalen’s sister, Alaina Kraning, who is a professional photographer. It’s not always easy to know how to pose for prom photos so these ideas are very helpful. Some of the poses they did are: a kiss, holding hands, dancing, laughing, dipping and sitting on a bench. Try various poses for your prom photos so that you’ll have lots of options to choose from when you see the final images.
The mission has a natural beauty with Spanish culture that goes perfect with the style choices for Kalen and Celeste of Yorba Linda High School. Kalen is wearing our slim fit Black Lorenzo Tuxedo with a black bow tie. His tuxedo has a shawl lapel, which has been a popular trend for celebrity red carpet events. Celeste is wearing a prom dress with a mermaid silhouette from the Los Angeles Fashion District. She accessorized with a rhinestone hair brooch to match her earrings for some sparkle. For couples that want a little bit of color, the roses on their corsage and boutonniere had just the right amount of red for a slight pop of color. Overall, it was a beautiful neutral palette for their prom style.

30 weeks and kickin’

how far along: 30 weeks.

what i’m wearing: lots and lots of loose clothes, basically anything that makes mama comfortable. Oh and my rainbow sandals are the only pair of shoes that fit my feet right now! Yikes!

stretch marks: still none…(yay)! my doctor was pretty impressed by this as am I, because I AM HUGE!

sleep: The past two weeks have been semi brutal, luckily my mama gifted me a pregnancy pillow that has helped tremendously with my back pain, but I still wake up a bunch, mainly because how hot I get!

highlights: I had a check up on Tuesday and my Doctor thinks I am actually further along than he expected and has scheduled us an ultrasound today to find out more.

things i miss: This week I miss red bull. I know, I know, it’s horrible for me, but it sound sooooo good! Don’t worry, I can wait it out to have one after Everly decides to show up.

lil e’s movement: We felt her lil head…or bum…something round that’s for sure. My eyes filled with tears knowing that our lil miracle is only 10 short weeks away!

food cravings: Still anything spicy. Oh and Reeses Easter eggs were a nice treat this past month ;)

anything making you queasy or sick: Traffic/motion sickness. The good ol’ 91 freeway and all its stop and go doesn’t agree with this mama.

have you started to show yet: I think this question is irrelevant now ha

overall mood:  Smitten. I am so eager to meet our baby girl and it shows!

looking forward to: Baby Showers!!! Whoop Whoop!

baby ‘e’ update

how far along: 26 weeks (well, tomorrow, friday).

total weight gain: too much! ha

what i’m wearing: still rocking lots of dresses, and any sandals that still fit me. – my feet decided to start swelling this week.

stretch marks: still none…(yay)!

sleep: I’ve been waking up at 4am most nights and have trouble falling back to sleep. It usually only takes about 20 minutes fall back asleep. around the same time I have to start getting ready for work. blah.  also, getting out of bed is so hard with this big old belly! i count to three before i hoist myself out of the bed most mornings.

highlights: kolin and I have been busy. REAL busy with our families. I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend at home getting baby E’s nursery together.

things i miss: I pretty much miss being skinny. ha, but am happy about the weight when I think of my lil peach.

lil e’s movement: lots of it! I feel her kicking throughout the day mostly on my right side. I love it.

food cravings: anything and everything spicy, please.

anything making you queasy or sick: kinda, the thought of bananas still gross me out.

have you started to show yet: I think it’s safe to say, YES!

overall mood:  I have random boosts of energy to clean, organize, and exercise more in the past two weeks than I did a month ago, but mostly I’m just tired all the time.

looking forward to: meeting miss everly lennon!
