Merry Christmas!

Dear Friends,

We write today to wish you, and yours, a very Merry Christmas. Hanukkah Sameach to our Jewish friends, and may peace, love, and unity bring a happy Kwanzaa to all who celebrate. 

This time of year is truly a festival of love, warmth, and sharing. We do hope this letter finds you all in good health, and in even better spirits.

For many of you, it has been some time since last we photographed and explored the world together. Our hope for 2021 and beyond is to see you all at one point, or another, behind the lens and in front of something magical.

We wish for all of our holiday festivals, whatever they may be, to bless each of us with a bit of magic, and may the coming year bring with it glad tidings and great joy for all people. 

Happy Christmas!

“Frost on the windowpane,
Carolers singing,
Snow falling gently.
And gay sleigh bells ringing,
Isn’t it wonderful!
Christmas is here –
The gladdest and happiest
Time of the year!”
-Mary Dawson Hughes
