The Dixon Family’s Session/Deer Park Washington Family Photographer/Love and Honey Photography

the transmission of customs or beliefs from generation to generation, or the fact of being passed on in this way.

The Dixon Family’s tradition: to come together as a family to celebrate, to share stories, to give gifts, to share ideas and beliefs, to have long discussions, to enjoy moments of togetherness.

I enjoyed listening to them as they got ready for their session.  The girls were helping each other with finishing touches, the littles were trying to escape the house without boots or coat.  Grandma was trying to herd them, like cats, toward their boots and coats, Grandpa was helping.  It was perfect family chaos.  The good kind, the kind where everyone is together, there is laughter floating through the air and little boys excitedly trying to get out to the fresh snow.

As I look through their pictures one more time I remember the day.  It was cold, so we didn’t last long out side, but it was fun.  It was fun to watch the behind the scenes.  A little mischief, a bit of sledding, a Jedi sword (what session is complete without one?), a family coming together, because that is their tradition.
