  • Traditions

has them. Big or smal…. every family has their traditions. I’ve been hearing some CRAZY ones recently!!! My parent’s weren’t big on the Santa thing growing up. They just never made a big deal about it… instead, we focused on family traditions. However, I LOVE hearing about what some families do to make the season extra fun!

Or leaving out reindeer food on the front porch…. I don’t know what your traditions may be but I’d love to hear them!!

Love the Alsops!!

It’s just fun to see what’s behind all of the pictures…. and to be honest, the behind the scenes isn’t quite as pretty as the actual end result. I think a general rule of thumb is if the photographer looks rough, the pictures will look great! No photographer should look 100% put together and perfect after shooting for hours upon hours!
