Five on Five – December | Minnesota Family Photographer

A beautiful and continually inspiring group of ladies and I have been doing this favorite five on five blog circle for years and it continues to give me such remarkable joy – I’m not sure where I’d be without it! Every month we post a small selection of favorite shots from the previous month, add a little bit of commentary and link on to the next gal in the circle. So, be sure to head over to check out Audrey’s beautiful work when you’re done here – thanks for looking!

December – that month of coming together, of bundling up and cozying in, of sparkling lights, of wonder and of awe. I actually took it pretty easy, photography-wise, this month, just catching little bits and pieces of the month: box forts, Christmas trees, snows and trips to the zoo.
