One Job Will Change My Life
The Power of a Picture
By: Paige Davenport
The lighting frames their faces as their smiles shine larger than life.
My eyes are mesmerized knowing this sight will soon turn from a moment in time into forever.
All this beauty contained in a snapshot.
More graceful and perfect than any words could describe.
For it is the memories it holds when looking back on this day.
And I am grateful.
Because nothing brings more joy than having the power to capture this moment.
For in a second it will be gone and this is all we will have left.
And I have the opportunity to be a part of it.
To bring smiles to peoples’ faces and joy to their hearts.
For this not just a colored piece of photo paper.
But a moment lived to the fullest that we get to remember.
And I’ll grow old and grey one day, happy that I lived my life doing what I love.
For it is not just a job, but a passion.
A passion to see that one perfect moment where lives can be captured in the simplest most detailed forms.
And I will not say this job may have the power to change my life.
Because I know it will without a doubt change me from the inside out.
And until then, I look forward to the day that I will live my dream and never look back.
