Look at this awesome photo @nicoleryee took of Marcus and I?! We don’t have many pictures of us together so it was a lot of fun when I got to hand off my camera to her and be on the other side of the lens.
Waiting for the show to start!🌟⠀
Her first time at a real theater watching a show that wasn’t on TV. 😂🙈⠀
The only thing better than watching her face was watching my mom right beside her. 😍😭 Three generations enjoying the Nutcracker ballet; new traditions are what this season does best! 🎄
So for the second year running, Nolan doesn’t seem to be the biggest fan of the big red guy named Santa 🎅
Still gives us an excuse to go out and enjoy the holiday spirit, even if Nolie refuses to crack a smile 😂
This kid is sooo obsessed with Christmas! And it’s been going on since August!!! I’m treating him with “Santa see everything” sentence couple times a day. I just don’t know what I’m going use as my go 2 parenting sentence after the holidays 🤷🏼♀️
Why Christmas cards? Why do we expend all the time and energy and expense to make such a feat happen? Because as Roland Barthes has put it, "every photograph is a certificate of presence" and Presence is exactly what Christmas is about. We send our well wishes and our photographs and it certifies a blessing of Presence between us. We love you, we're with you, God is with you, our God-with-us Emmanuel has come and we know it even more in the being together. Is it easy to get all the cards made and assembled and stamped and shipped and all of it? No. But it's so worth it. 📸 : @candacedchaney * Thank you all so much for sending cards to our homes- every one is a gift. You can see a sampling of what we've done this season in our story today! And there’s more on the blog today! #mamaslovephotography#joypreserved#shreveportphotographer#dallasphotographer
Wrapping up the last minute details this weekend. Life has been so crazy, I haven’t sent Christmas cards in two years. I gave myself the grace to not worry about it, but it’s time to resume the tradition. 75% are already in the mail and that feels great! Do you send Christmas cards?
Simply one of the cutest families I’ve ever worked with. She’s such an adorable child who loves her daddy plenty! 2018, you’ve been really good to me and bringing me all these beautiful and lovely families. I’m looking forward to seeing them again in 2019! •
How’s your Christmas planning going so far? Plenty of bubblies, Christmas parties and exchanging presents? Have you taken the time out to reflect and feel grateful for 2018, too? •
Have a lovely weekend ahead everyone! 😘
Zaphora has been asking for a pet this year, to which I said “Wow- what? 😳OK, let's take it one step at a time, like, how about getting a TOY pet first? 🐶😅
Luckily we discovered these adorable @lolsurprise Biggie Pets, and they have been a hit with my pet-obsessed gal. They can be worn as a backpack and double as a piggy-bank. And the best part? Opening all the little surprises that come with it! 🤩For real, the surprise factor and ingenious packaging make these babies so fun!
Who feels like they have their Christmas shopping under control this year? For the first time 👉🏼🙋🏻♀️🙌🏼🙈

I’m not the least bit sad that our nativity set is adorable and plastic for the foreseeable future. 😂 Tiny hands playing with little toy bible characters is quite possibly the sweetest thing ever. 😍⠀
Is your house rocking the kid-friendly nativity this year, or have you been upgraded to the grown-up version?🎄
Believe in the magic of Christmas 🎄 .
