Before I clock out to spend some quality time with family for Christmas (it will only be my husband and my sister, thanks to covid times), I want to reflect on what this year has learned us to be the most important: being present, being in the here and now, enjoying the valuable time you have with friends and family. Nothing else matters than loving, respecting, nurturing, accepting, looking after one another, staying humble for what we have and especially who we have in our lives.
And looking at this beautiful family that I photographed a few weeks back - they resemble all those things. I was in awe to see how they interact as a family, nothing was posed, nothing was rehearsed, nothing was "put on", I was merely a spectator capturing their everyday being. This made my heart happy.
