why i photograph: a guest post by Kiley

Hi. My name is Kiley and I blog over at Click and Capture. I am a teenage girl with a huge heart for Jesus. I've loved photography since about a year ago, when I bought my first SLR. Ever since I've been a little snap crazy....I'm also very sarcastic. ;) I love every second of this life but can't wait to be with my Jesus. I love my friends and family, they bring more joy to my life. Oh, and I'm kind of new to this blogging thing. But it is awesome.

Photography has really taught me some things. Like to cherish moments, and don't take advantage of them.
I know it sounds weird, but I never noticed how beautiful the world was until I started photographing things.
God gave us this life to enjoy, and teach others about him before we live eternally with him in an even more beautiful place. ♥
Photography is what I love to do. It is my creative side, my "sport", my "hobby."
It is what I LOVE.
I love to capture little moments that may be forgotten at some point. 
When I'm older, I want to look back and remember the beautiful live I lived with my family and friends. 
And that, is why I photograph.
