The Holiday season is upon us! This is the most exciting an magical time of year as a parent.
The music, the baking, the shopping for gifts that will make your children’s faces light up. There is nothing better than the Holidays!
We live in TN, and we don’t have a single family member nearby. This means that we are extra busy this time of year planning visits to celebrate the season and planning for guests. Unfortunately, it also means that we are unable to see and celebrate with everyone that we would like to. As a photographer, this is where I play another role in the Holiday magic. I am that mom who takes far too many photos of her children and posts them all over social media. One reason is because I enjoy taking the photos and will have so many to look back on when my children are grown. I can look back and see each stage of their little personalities captured perfectly in a photograph. The second reason I enjoy taking photos is because I know it makes someone that we love who lives far from us, smile. To me that is the most magical part of the Holiday season, is doing things to make other’s feel Joy.
As a photographer, to me it’s all about the details. I like to let the kids do as they please, smile, laugh, run, snuggle- candid photos are my style. The only thing I like to control is the clothing they wear. I love a lot of neutrals when it comes to clothing. Timeless has always been and always will be our style. Lucky for us, we have a Carter’s close by and often shop there for the kid’s clothing. They have a variety of styles perfect for every moment- especially this holiday season! I was able to pick up some perfect Christmas outfits for the kids along with some adorable and cozy outfits for the days leading up to Christmas!
The selection of sweaters, rompers and PJs are going to make you want to buy one of everything in the store- which is just fine because Carter’s clothing and PJs are not only cute and comfy BUT they come at an affordable price without sacrificing quality! You’re going to mark your calendars y’all because they are having Black Friday deals starting on Friday November 17th that you DON’T want to miss! Seriously, you don’t want to miss it- Carter’s and Oshkosh B’gosh stores are having a Dash In to Win Sweepstakes, giving away over $700,000 in Dash Cash to the first 100 people to visit their local stores on Black Friday (either 11/23 or 11/24, check your local store for hours!).
My favorite items I snagged were this adorable and super-soft bear romper for Wes and the thick and cozy cardigan that Grey is wearing. They’re items that can be worn ALL season long, and even beyond that! Don’t get me wrong, I love holiday plaids and prints, and even purchased some BUT to me the best finds are the ones that are holiday appropriate and can be dressed in a different way to work year round!
They kid’s day time looks this season are incredible BUT lets also talk a bit about at night! Since my first born, Ada, was a baby (almost 6 years ago now!) Carter’s PJs have been my favorite. Seriously, all three kids have worn almost exclusively Carter’s brand PJs. The soft cottons, the terry cloth, the fleece, the fun animals on the feet and bums- so cute! Well there’s now one more reason to grab your jammies from Carter’s this season! Carter’s believes that every child deserves a good night so they are partnering with Pajama Program, an organization that provides children new pajamas from November 1 st – December 31 st . When reading about the Pajama Program I was so moved and I love that Carter’s is partnering with this organization. Customers can help by donating a pair of new pajamas in store or simply by making a monetary donation at check out (in store or online). Carter’s will match up to 100,000 pairs of pajamas- WOW! The best part of this is your local community benefits directly from your support!
If your stumped on what gift to give a family member or friend with a new baby look no further. Wes is cozy all day in his new holiday clothing! We play, shop and even nap perfectly content and in sweet baby style!
Big brother approves too.
