• LIFE

    It’s all four generations. It’s a mother and daughter. It’s a little boy climbing a tree. It’s a chance encounter with a horse. It’s chasing down a windblown hat. It’s an unexpected wave soaking your feet.

  • LITTLES

    There are toothless smiles, sticky kisses, dirty hands, rain-booted feet jumping puddles, and bugs in jars. There are chubby chub thighs, hands waving bye-bye, and rides on daddy’s shoulders.

  • LOVE

    Love looks like your grandmother’s wedding ring, love sounds like an inside joke, love feels like his sweatshirt, but love will also tell you there is spinach in your teeth.

Missy Marie Photography . Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

holiday cookie exchange pin_rev

I am so excited to be a part of a cookie exchange blog hop where I get to share a favorite cookie recipe!  The most awesome Paper & Cake put this fun idea together, and this week, you can gather up some cookie recipes to bake for your family, or for holiday gifts!

My girls and I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies.  This is a little combo of the traditional Toll House recipe paired with the Cuisinart Mixer cook book. Here it is:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup butter

2 eggs

1 ½ teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

3 cups all-purpose flour

12 ounces milk chocolate chips

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees; Combine flour baking soda & salt in small bowl. Beat sugars, butter, eggs, and vanilla in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheets.

 

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Missy Marie Photography . Manhattan Beach children’s photographer . Jackson

I about died when this handsome fella showed up with his momma and his red tricycle on the Manhattan Beach Pier.  Every year the city of Manhattan Beach puts Christmas trees along the entire length of the pier, and it provides a perfect backdrop for photos at the beach.

Enjoy!

Missy Marie Photography . Hermosa Beach photographer . Kira + Brynn

Oh, these girls.  SO lovely, mature, smart, fearless and downright awesome.  Each has their own passion…Kira, a lead singer in a rock band, and Brynn, an extremely talented dancer.  I love seeing these gals, and photographing them every year.  Oh, and by the way, I love their parents, too.

Enjoy.

Missy

Manhattan Beach maternity photographer . Missy Marie Photography . Abigail + baby sister

I absolutely love doing maternity photo sessions; being a maternity photographer is one of the perks of my job!  I love them more when the session includes my awesome cousin, his awesome wife, and their darling daughter, Abby.  I did their maternity session when they were expecting Abby, too.  I can’t wait to meet the new baby girl, and to see those little girls grow up together!

love you guys, xoxox missy
