being MVP: Kids Holiday Photo Shoot @chasenfireflies

Kids Holiday Photo Shoot @chasenfireflies

Disclosure: I received two outfits and snowballs for review from Chasing Fireflies. All opinions are my own.


Can you believe that Christmas is merely a month away? It's the time to break out the camera and get your kids in their holiday best for photos. Kenzie loves to dress up in fancy dresses and I thought it would be awesome for Mason to rock a suit for the holidays now that he is a full on toddler.


I've seen the adorable costumes that Chasing Fireflies offers but when I saw the outfits in the All Dressed Up category, I was giddy. Little kids looking precious and dapper in holiday best - what more can you ask for? They offer head-to-toe outfit suggestions which is really nice if you don't know where to begin in your search. My dear Kenzie is pretty in her Snowstorm Dress which is accompanied by a book. I love the subtle holiday design with the trees and snow. When it becomes chilly, just toss on the coordinating green cardigan. I'd love it in my size! The black patent Mary Janes are classic and complete the outfit. Kenzie exclaimed that they look like tap shoes and began tapping all over the place. *Note that she has never taken tap before so I have no clue where she came up with that.


Kenzie sure loves dressing up like the princess she is so to top off her holiday outfit, she is wearing the girls crystal tiara. This is really exquisite for little girls - almost like my wedding tiara. I just used bobby pins to adhere to her hair and she was ready to pose. Sparkly and can be worn any day of the week for a little glam.


Mason is a handsome tot in the Mod Suit. He was a meaty baby but has now grown into a tall, lean toddler. This is one sleek suit with impeccable detailing. The cut is slim and fits Mason quite well. With a white dress shirt and the Monkey Business tie, Mason looked like a handsome little man. I thought he may be uncomfortable but he was running around and playing with ease. Hmmm.. does that mean he could potentially grow up to be in the corporate world and look GQ all the time? A mom can only hope.


Although it has been a wee bit chilly in the mornings and evenings, the daytime highs still reach into the high 80s here in So Cal. So even though I would have loved the background for photos to be changing leaves with wind blown hair, alas we had to settle for the beach. I had the setup thought out in my head but the afternoon didn't go quite as planned. Taking photos of young kids means just going with the flow and chasing them while snapping away. The Snowtime Snowballs didn't quite make it into the air to imitate snow falling as Hubs kept tossing them to random areas and the kids kept on chasing them down instead of looking perfectly straight at the lens while the snow fell around them. We'll need to get a bit of practice in on that!



What I've learned over the several years of being a mom is to cherish all the moments captured in time rather than just posed. Kenzie loves her dress and I can't wait for her to wear it on her birthday - Christmas morning!

Chasing Fireflies has a fabulous selection of boys suits & coats, girls dresses & sets and holiday decorations for your kids holiday photo shoot.
