Whoa how is it holiday season already? You guys this year I got our families holiday photos taken way ahead of time. And you know what? I’m so glad I did, because Jezriel has been extremely busy and traveling for work a little more than what I anticipated.
I am loving each holiday season that comes along more and more ever since Jezriel and I started growing our family. One commitment I’m promising myself are family photos for each holiday season. This year I’m partnering with JCPenney to give you behind the scenes and tips to take your holiday family photos at home.
I think this is the last year I can get a way from a birthday party because she’s so obsessed with Minnie Mouse. Jezriel and I thought it was time for Cataleya to meet her at Disneyland.
So I meant to publish this post a few weeks ago, but I really wanted to get a photo of our whole family. That meant finding and dust off my tripod.
A couple weekends ago was Enzo’s baptismal, we kept it intimate with only immediate family and his Godparents Angel and Keith. I was looking through the blog to find Cataleya’s baptismal, but realize I wasn’t even blogging yet, so I only have a couple precious photos of her’s <3.
You guys I just couldn’t wait to share with you Enzo’s newborn photos that we got done, it was so hard to pick and chose which ones to share. Corinna is just frigging amazing and talented she did not disappoint! Best investment ever and absolutely wish I got them done with Cataleya.
A month old already and Enzo’s tininess and soft lanugo hair is fading away. It’s so hard to image what life was before we became a family of four.
I wanted to share a few must have items that were essentials for us. There were a ton of items that I felt we could have bought later down the road, but… hey I didn’t know our parenting style ??♀️.
In addition to stocking up on those diapers, wipes, and clothes, below are items that popped into my head.
