Last month, I held my final of four mini sessions for the year.  In addition to the 10 families that have been with me through the entire year for my Capture the Whole Year – 2016, I was lucky enough to have ten other families join me for their Holiday Mini Sessions!  Most of these have already been shared either on Facebook or Instagram, so I’ll try to keep it quick by just sharing a few.  Scroll to the end of this post for a Free Holiday Tags download from Alison Bridges Photography!


Now onto the free Holiday Tags!  About four years ago, my family adopted a new tradition for Christmas.  Our kids had everything they could ever need and we noticed a real problem when they were having a hard time even coming up with gifts to add to Santa’s letter.  So, from there on, they each began receiving four gifts:

  1. Something they want
  2. Something they need
  3. Something they wear
  4. Something they read

The first year I was so nervous it would seem like they didn’t have much under the tree.  But we quickly realized this was more than enough!  And the kids haven’t complained once!  They actually enjoy coming up with ideas for their four categories.

So each year, Santa wraps each kid’s present in their own wrapping paper and tapes tags on the gifts specifying if it is their “want, need, wear or read.”  And that’s where the free holiday tags come in!  I’ve created simple PDF for their four gifts and want to share them with you!  Just type in your name and email address below to access the download of your free Holiday Tags.  Who else has this or a similar tradition when it comes to gift giving?  Add a comment below, I’d love to hear!
