My family doesn’t have many family traditions.  The ones we do have just kind of happened they’re little things usually.  One of them, and one of my favorites, is having the girls put on my bow tie before a wedding we’re going to shoot.  It’s so special to me and I can’t even tell you why.  It’s also rare as the girls are usually at Melissa’s parents house by the time I’m getting ready.

They pick out a few they like then Melissa chooses from there.  (notice how I have no part, haha)  You can usually find the pink bow tie in the mix every time.

This past weekend we were shooting a wedding so the girls helped me as always.  They then asked to wear one themselves. Bella with pink and Ava with purple.  Which are their colors of choice these days.  This is the opposite from when they were younger by the way.

I loved doing this with them and it was nice helping them put theirs on.
