Banksy Balloon Girl
Street art is part of city life. I love watching my regular drives transform even without structural changes. It makes me think, creates interesting conversation sometimes just confuses me...
Either way, I love it.My all time favorite piece is Banksy's balloon girl. It has always reminded me of my daughter. Her hair blowing in the wind, little dress over jeans..
I see innocence, I see loss, I see hope, I see myself... Let Go.
I have had this shot in my mind for a few weeks. Last night my husband, daughter and I went for it! We hike as high as we could over Griffith Park and set up this Banksy inspired shot of my 5 year old Kara Justice.
If you are not familiar with Banksy or the art that inspired my photo you can find more is his work at www.banksy.co.uk
Yesterday my daughter woke up with a fever. She stayed in bed and cuddled me most of the day. Getting some (any) food in her was a priority and was thrilled when she requested yogurt! What better food than probiotics and fruit when your sick. I made this recipe for her yesterday and when she woke up feeling better this morning she asked for more. So I showed her how to make it herself, with a little help from her brother. I hope you and your kids enjoy this simple recipe as much as my kids did.
What you need:
Cut the tops off the strawberries
Just like this... :)
Get your bananas and make a phone call..... call your grandma and tell her about the yummy yogurt you are making!
Now cut up the bananas
Put the bananas and strawberries in the blender
Add the yogurt... tasting some along the way is a good idea too!
Blend it all up!
Add any topping you like. My kids used bananas because they opened an extra but ground flax seed, strawberries, whipped cream.. all sound yummy too!
If you make this or any other recipe on my blog with your kids share your pictures on my Facebook page! My kids would love to see them!

First of all, WELCOME to my new website! After a week of serious frustration, some snapping at my husband and a few tears that were thankfully followed by "AH-HA!" moments I am so happy to finally share it with the world.
Who knew I was a web designer?? I sure didn't! I had been telling my self for a few years that to have a site like this I would have to pay for it. When in fact.. I just needed to quit Facebook for a week and FOCUS!
My website and blog are now ONE! No more confusing back and forth for you or me. I hope you will have a look around, but keep in mind I am still adding photos to galleries and making small tweeks!
To celebrate (really to thank my kids and husband for sticking it through "Christina pretending to be a website builder week") we headed to the beach for a much needed family day at the beach.
Here is a little peek at the fun we had.
Lex working hard!
Kara "catching a wave!"
Luke and Kara working together! haha
My boys ♥
How cool is this shot!!! Kara and daddy jumping over waves!
All of my loves...
And the last two photos of the night...
"At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun."
Want me to send the day photographing your family at the beach? Send me a message and lets make it happen!
Dana is a mama of a little guy already and expecting a daughter in a few weeks. Last week she came over to my house right from work (and got a peek at what life with more than one kid looks like... I hope my kids didn't scare her!! haha). She was pampered by my lovely Hair and make up artist Hiroko. Then we headed to Santa Monica for the evening. It was such a beautiful day. The sun was warm, the breeze was light. Dana was so much fun and up for anything... including going into the ocean.. dressed! By the end of her shoot we were both soaked and had sand where sand just shouldn't be :x It was so worth it for these pictures we got! I can not wait for meet your daughter Dana ♥
Oh and shouldn't we all be so adorable in our bikinis when we are 8 months pregnant??
