[a note from Erin]
“Embrace the glorious mess that you are. ” Elizabeth Gilbert
I have this quote hanging on my bedroom wall so that I can see it every morning when I wake up. This year has been a season of change in my life. This photo shoot was my way of living these words. Having been a wife, lover and mother for 1/2 of my life, I felt the pull to embrace my glorious mess, physically and emotionally. I was my strongest self than I had been in many years. Mikell helped me feel comfortable and at ease in my own skin. She was able to pull out my strength and vulnerability in these images. I am so pleased and in awe of the work that we created together.
