More Family Photos… (A little late)

Looking through my “Draft” posts last night, I realized I put this one together back in October and never actually published it! Since I LOVE these photos so much, I figured I may as well share it now. :)


To say I love our family photos is an understatement. If I had the time to sit and stare at them all day, trust me, I would. They turned out so amazingly, and they just capture Blaire’s little personality so perfectly. I just had to share a few more.

Hopefully she doesn’t want to kill us for those last two someday. Her baby rolls are just the cutest, how could we not document them?!? I actually went in to this shoot with the mindset that I was against “naked” baby pictures. But then our photographer found the amazing spot with the long grass and asked if we wanted to try some with just the crown. Seeing how happy she was and how adorable she looked in the crown made me change my mind and I was down to do whatever we could to document our adorable little girl. The floral crown was custom-made to match the little dress she was wearing. My friend Tiff at Tied in Twine  did an amazing job and she had such a fast turn around time. With Blaire growing and changing every day (or so it seems), I wish we could get them taken every month. I know that’s extreme. So, how often do you get family photos taken? I’d love to hear which milestones you schedule your photos for. xo

Brunch with Santa

Last Sunday we had brunch with Santa! It was my MIL’s birthday, so it was the perfect excuse to have both sets of our parents come along. Jason, Blaire and I decorated cookies and made Blaire a Christmas stocking. Blaire was okay with Santa when he was standing a few feet away while offering her a candy cane, which she did NOT want to give up. Santa had a gift for each child there and Blaire was excited to help rip off the wrapping paper and then play with her new Elmo bath toy.

BUT… when it came time to sit on Santa’s lap for a picture, Blaire was not a fan. However, it was past her nap time. She was grumpy and hungry, and just not having it. Poor girl! I thought she might calm down if I held her, and as you can see in the photo below, it didn’t help. We still plan to take Blaire to the mall to see Santa. I’m hoping if there are less people around and she’s not hangry, then it might go better. PLUS, she has the cutest outfit to wear to see him. If you follow me on Instagram, which you should DEFINITELY be doing, then you already have seen a sneak peek! ;)

I just had to wrap up with a family picture! Blaire is looking down at our dog Mocha, in case you’re wondering. HA! How was your little one’s visit to Santa? What traditions are your favorite for the holidays? I’d love to hear them! xo
