First family pics!




Our sweet friend Megan is starting up her photography business and took some family pics for us...pretty great right?! I love them and these are really all I have seen. We will be getting the rest sometime soon and I am pretty sure I will love those as well. I must give her props because it was literaly about 110 degrees when we shot these and so she must have some mad photoshopping skills to edit out all of the sweat that was pouring out of our bodies. It was sick.

Hey there! You don't know me, but your blog is one of many that I quietly stalk as my hubby and I go through the process of adopting in Ethiopia. I just wanted to tell you how fabulous your family pics turned out. Malak is adorable! Makes me want a boy now:)

So cute! I love the one in the truck. Definitely a favorite. Him looking up at you guys. Priceless picture. :)

megan said...

I love them! She did an amazing job! I love the kissing pic could that be any sweeter!!!

Ashtin said...

I must say I am very sick of looking at your blog. Every bloody time I do, I CRY!!! At first it was because I was excited, then because I was sad, now because you are too freaking cute. Enough already! I love you guys!
I really love the family photos. I am not sure if I have said it, but I am so happy for you and your new family. How very wonderful. I hope we will get to meet Malak soon.

Jess said...

Mmmm...I love the family pic where you are all looking at the camera. Too preci! (you like my spelling?) You have one handsome little boy...is that the hat we got while I was there or did you find another that would fit on his cute little head?

emily said...

So precious-- I love Malak looking at you two love-birds kissing in the back of a truck!!

MajesticSix said...

How adorable! Yes, Megan does a great job. Thanks for posting on our blog and adding us to yours. I love reading about little Malak and your family. We are moving ahead with our adoption, but it is slow going. We actually changed agencies (which scares me a little), but have a local friend that just adopted six siblings from Ethiopia and is working with us using the new agency. Did you go through the mixed emotions (male/female, age, etc.), or did you and Eric know instantly? Would love to hear feedback from other adoptive parents because I am really struggling with doing the "right" thing. My husband doesn't care, but I keep thinking how best they will fit in with our other children (ages 5,8,22,25). WHEW...

Keep the posts coming...LOVE seeing new pics of Malak. He seems to change daily!

What I don't love? That we'll be in Oregon just FOUR DAYS AFTER you leave. Seriously thinking of re-scheduling trip. If only my kids weren't in school!!

The last one, the truck pic with Malek looking up like, "hey whats going on here, the attention is supposed to be on me?!?!" is my fav! Great pics! Sherry

Eric and Cheryl said...

Gorgeous pictures! It would be very hard to pick which ones to get. I am super excited that you are coming to town and hopefully will get to meet that precious boy of yours.

Safe travels...Cheryl
