STUDIO SHOOT: Scott

Scott: My theory is that the reason we can't ever see a mermaid is because every time their curiosity about us humans brings them to the surface of the ocean, the water gets protective of its own, precious inhabitants, and lifts itself to keep them out of view; this is where waves come from.

GROUND FLOOR SESSION: Natalie

One Boise-hot (which means desert-scolding-what-the-fuck-i-might-pass-out-hot) Sunday morning I met up with Natalie and her best friend to create some visual poetry - playing with shadows, cats and abandoned houses.

Natalie had emailed me to take pictures because its her senior year in college in Portland and she wanted to have some images to give away and also to reward herself for being awesome (obviously!).

So we made some magic.

Enjoy ♥

LOVE SESSION: Ben & Scott

“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.” 
― Sarah Dessen

These images are very special to me. I love these two so much. They share such a beautiful, deep, magical love.

I captured the two a few days before Ben left to depart for his adventure in Europe to be a dancer for the Nederlands Dans Theatre. Even though they will be living on two different continents for quite some time their souls are always together. Because love has no boundaries and knows no time!

Here are some beautiful words written by Scott that say it better than anything I could ever write:

I've noticed that during these past few months, my thoughts and feelings have been with me, not against me. I've been fighting with myself, inside myself, for as long as I can remember; now I'm sitting here in complete comfort, in complete contentment, forgetting about my skin and feeling the blood traveling beneath it, knowing that my body is functioning. For a reason. That my head and heart are clear and collaborative for a reason. I've never met another person who has taken me out of myself, who has made me so selfless, who has replaced my doubt with eternal hope, until recently. I am genuine in saying I haven't been in love before, until recently, because I've never wanted anyone else to be happier than I could ever be. Until now. You know who you are, and we know this is worth it. I am finally elated to be me, and I can't wait to start the rest of our life.





Want me to capture your love? Check out my pricing or email me for a custom session!

xoxo Erika
