This Christmas Eve, I brought my camera to the Tunbridge Church’s annual service, which concludes with the sanctuary filled with candlelight and song. About 12 hours later, I photographed a father and mother’s reactions to their children’s excitement on Christmas morning. It’s rewarding to witness such special moments with my camera.
