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. All lead to the destination of enjoying the journey through it's photographs.  I'd love for you to follow along on both my journeys and my destinations. There's bound to be some laughs, some tears, and painful lessons learned along the way. That's life though, isn't she beautiful?

SAN DIEGO December is my favorite month in San Diego. Most people flock to San Diego during the warm Summer months, but little do they know about San Diego in its Winter beauty. The weather is in the low 70’s during the day, and then drops down to the high 40’s low 50’s at night. […]
