This is Tequila a female Tiger Shark, My first Tiger that I have had the pleasure of swimming with. These sharks have a reputation of being “garbage cans” and eat everything they can get their jaws into....Well that reputation was crushed by the tranquility she brought amongst our group, she was incredible, her eye changing direction to look at me as I swam up to her. Just amazing. .

As we are young the world seems so big and full of adventure, most people lose sight of this, They get lost in the struggles of life and can no longer see the bigger picture that surrounds them, stay motivated and keep working hard just don’t forget how you got where you are today.
I am writing this caption with tears in my eyes. Part of why I love my job is because I get to witness so many beautiful moments and meet incredible people along the way. And to be honest, I get really attached to my clients. I invest my whole heart into telling their story through my lens and often times I come across people with so much light and love in their life that it changes me. Chandani was one of those people that shone so bright, her goodness and kindness brought joy into my life and so many others. It is with great sadness that this beautiful wife and mother passed away suddenly last week. My heart is so heavy, but with this family during this absolutely unthinkable loss. She embodied so much love, I will cherish the images that I was blessed to capture of her shining light forever.
Just trying piece my life together. Since the beginning of the year I've been in a very dark place. I put my camera down and gave up on my dreams. I was battling demons & going through a deep depression. Suicide felt like the only way out. I had to meet certain people, lose so called "friends" and i realized i have alot to LIVE for. I had to seek help because i sunk into a very low part in my life. My anxiety, depression & addictions kept me from my family, friends and my craft.. Im doing better now and getting back on my bully.. I just know this WAR isnt over and i WILL not let the DEVIL keep me away from being the BEST i can BE!
