On this celebrated day of LOVE I want to acknowledge the person I've chosen to do LIFE with. He's my best friend, my right hand man, my travel partner and my unlimited source of random facts. 🧐 His takes his role of "pool boy" 🤣 to the next level by keeping my studio pool in working conditions – even known to work into the dark hours of the night to fix the feisty pump in time for shoots! He carries around mermaids 🧜♀️ (he never complains!), carries heavy gear and tanks, assists in the water, takes behind-the-scenes pics and is constantly coming up with new, innovative ideas to help my business grow. His role in Flashpool and in my life doesn't get near enough recognition. So today, and every day, I thank you – you have my whole heart and always will. 💙💦
Photo is from the first time I wore a mermaid tail – to say this was a challenge for me is an understatement... I guess you could say I'm used to being on the other side of the camera, not having my legs bound together or waves crashing into my face! Of course Matt was right by my side, was an encouraging voice and even though I felt like I was trying to drown myself in the ocean, he still made this magical, romantic scene happen.
