In spirit of Diwali

Diwali is known as, "the festival of lights." In spirit of Diwali, I like to take the time to celebrate all the lights in my life that make me into a brighter person. The person in the picture is an important figure in my life who helped me see the importance of finding your own true self. The image you see is who she defines herself to be. Me taking the picture defines me and my passion to always capture beauty and happiness.
