I received an email this morning that brought a smile and tear to my eye. It was a simple gesture of thanks for taking a family photograph and what that photo meant to her family. A gentle reminder to never forget the importance of a single photograph.
For some it is the process of taking the photograph itself. The act of being connected with the people around you... the fun you have together and those special moments you've shared.
for others... as "painful" as the picture taking process is ;)
...it is the final result that has frozen a place in time that will forever bring a smile to your eyes.
