For the past 12 months, there have been moments where life felt normal again. It was almost as if there wasn’t a worldwide pandemic going on at time.

Yes, they photographed the struggles of COVID-19, but throughout the year they also treated our readers to some very memorable moments filled with light, love and life.
Here are 30 of the best images of the year taken by our staff photographers.
