This month, our 30 minutes were simple and festive. The 30 minutes it took my daughter to open her Christmas gifts is also just about the most festive thing I can think of. There’s so much joy on Christmas morning. Not because of physical gifts.  But because it’s together time; a reminder of all the magic we work hard to provide all year long, wrapped up simply and festively to celebrate the holiday season.

I’m wishing you and your family a joyous and festive holiday season and new year!

Can you tell what her two favorite gifts were?

These were all taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Sigma 35 mm Art lens and edited lightly for color in Lightoom.
