I wanted to share this shot not only because she looks beautiful but also because I snapped it on a whim. You may not be able to tell from the fierceness but it was actually freezing outside and poor Desi was literally shaking from the cold. And yet somehow I was still able to capture the beauty, even with the struggling. I think that’s one big part of what appeals to me about photography: you never really know what you’ll create and often times the best pictures just happen. And of course, that kind of cheesy wisdom can be freely applied to life, if you so choose.
