A Rice Family Christmas, Murrieta Family Photography


Just days before Christmas, our friends BJ and Melissa—along with their little family—were in town and we were able to get together to take some family photos!

My hubby and BJ have been friends since forever, BJ was in our wedding and my hubby in theirs… so it was an honor to be able to capture some memories of their sweet—and growing—family!

(And if you’ve been reading this blog from the very beginning, you may remember them from one of my first ever vacation post series: Roadtrip 2010 when we all drove to Kansas, South Dakota (part 1, part 2) and Colorado in a week.)

A dad and his son, a mother and her daughter…


These next few are my absolute favorite!

Thank you so much for spending the afternoon with me and smiling for my camera!

I believe in magic. I believe in the power of true love. I believe in fairy tales and happy endings. And I live to create stationery and art for the young at heart to allow my fellow dreamers to treasure all of life’s most wondrous moments!
