My Bio
I was born in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, and moved to the United States with my mom when I was 3 years old. I've lived in California, Hawaii (Maui {w/ family} and the Big Island {for school}), Oregon, Wisconsin (less than a year there), and currently I'm a resident in Orlando, Florida, going on 4 years. I've also done a lot of traveling, especially in recent years. I have family in both Spain and Switzerland

I have a very strong passion for the natural world. I love photographing the nature world, with a strong emphasis on animals. I am currently a photographer at SeaWorld Orlando's Dolphin Cove. I'm also a writer. You can find my book in my gallery in its own folder,"Legacy of the White Tigress", along with other writings. It is available as an e-book on Amazon Kindle…. It will soon be in the process of being published in print.
I have also opened a shop on Etsy for my and :iconraptorfire:'s prints:…

I feel that I now need to insist restraint from negative and anti-captivity comments. They will be removed. As much I'd rather see any animal in the wild rather than in captivity, especially whales and dolphins, I don't want such comments on my photos or profile. I'm not advocating that captivity is a must, nor that it is the only to see whales. I take these photos for the admiration of these animals, and share them so that others can enjoy their beauty as well, including those who have not (or will not have) the chance to see them.
Thank you

My heart is broken. My whale girl is gone. I have no words for the pain I've been feeling all day, and even now as I write this. We had some amazing moments, and I cannot express how incredible it was to be able to spend so much time around such a wonderful creature. This was a loss no one saw coming. So many were inspired by your beauty, grace, personality. My lovely Kayla, you will be deeply missed.

It's Been Rough

0 min read
Those of you who are friends with me on Facebook or know me in rl know about this already, but last Thursday, 5/4/2017, my grandfather passed away after a long battle with aggressive lung cancer. It's been a rough week. My parents are currently in Spain helping my grandmother, and next week Raptor and I are flying out for our trip, which was supposed to be a final visit to see my grandfather, but of course, that has changed. So if I seem a bit distant, irritable, or a bit off, this is why. Thanks everyone for understanding. ~EarthEmerald
