Treasured words from RL:
"Erika, at every instance - from booking the appointment, to discussing ideas, on the actual day of the shoot, reveal, and beyond- made me feel comfortable, seen, inspired, empowered, and safe. She always treated me, and my images with respect and honor.
My Ivory Rose Boudoir experience was beyond anything I could have imagined. It was magical, in a profoundly spiritual way. I had some personal challenges four days before my scheduled shoot. I emailed Erika, who was extremely supportive, she gave me some options, but ultimately left the decision of whether or not to keep the session up to me. I decided to go ahead and keep the scheduled session. I am so grateful I did. That day marks a truly remarkable experience where I felt held by the Universe in a powerful way. Erika was one conduit of the love and support surrounding me. Our session gave me a moment of light when I was shrouded in a mist of darkness, and that moment has helped me to find my way. I can not express how transformative this experience has been.
I love the way Erika works. She let me do my thing, never posed me or adjusted me when I moved into a new pose. She was a witness to my experience, a champion, and facilitator of beauty. My images are so deeply personal. They don't even feel like a photo session, but rather a memory drawn from the mind and placed to the page. That is how magnificent this experience was and remains. As I admire the art we created the magical quality of that day fills my spirit with hope and joy.
I look forward to working with her again in the future. "
