They say it's about the journey and not the destination. I believe with photography, it's truly about both. There is a journey that lies in each session you have, through each moment you capture in time, and every memory that becomes etched in mind.

There's bound to be some laughs, some tears, and painful lessons learned along the way. That's life though, isn't she beautiful?
