*so the credit for this picture goes to my younger sister b. (i did edit it though : ) but, as i was looking through pictures i recently put on my computer i came across this photo. it made me remember why photography is so important to me personally. i mean look at that smile! through a picture we have a way of capturing a small, instant moment, yet the memory of it and the joy, sadness, every possible emotion and experience can be preserved forever! what an amazing gift we have!
