Is Santa’s beard real? | Dallas Family Photography

On the way to hubby’s work holiday party this weekend, the kiddos giggled in the back seat about Santa’s beard being real…and who was going to give it a little tug to see if it was. My eyeballs bulged in the front seat — nervous that one of them would really go through with it!!! :)

Good thing his beard was the real deal (and it was obvious, thank goodness!) so no parents had to be embarrassed in this little venture.


I love watching the initial interactions and glances with Santa after a whole year has gone by. During that year, kiddos grow up so much and it’s always a mixture of a little shy, a little sweet, and a little spunk. The magic of the season is truly something I cherish — hope you’re getting to enjoy it a bit even though this time of year is so fast-paced!

Have a wonderful day!

    I love the glow from the tree and Santa’s gentle hands.
