Alloway New Jersey Victoria ~ Sacred Empowerment

 “The time has come for us to take accountability and responsibility for the innate power and wisdom that we have.  This is not only for us but for our families, community, planet and our Universe.” ~ Parvati Victoria Goodwin

  Victoria is an enchanted being.  Her presence is one of magic and mystery.  She is whimsical yet grounded and her sense of self and innate power is contagious.  She is passionate in her journey to help others heal themselves and to empower them to step into who they were sent here to be.  So it was my honor to collaborate with her and create some magical images that convey her message of exploring our lightness and darkness to truly step into our power. 

  It was a stormy summer evening and there was thunder rolling in a distance but the dark and moody ambiance set the perfect tone for our adventure.  We flowed through yoga and explored the forest leaving no dark corners or light openings unturned.  The purifying water of the stream and the inviting tree bridge were the perfect accents to this beautiful scene and I loved how Victoria embraced the elements.

 I honestly felt the magic in the air as we created this unique art together.  These images are powerful and symbolic and encompass everything I strive to capture when I'm in this space with a woman.  I cannot express how grateful I am for the opportunity to work with Victoria and my soul has been forever touched by this extraordinary experience.

Alloway New Jersey Tiffany ~ The Woodsy Witch

"An artist is typically a being that is filled with so much passion, love, or pain for certain lands, people, ideas,or images that all they can do with that overflow is bleed it out by creating. And with this type of art, the energy will be shifted from the depths of them and into the depths of the audience to be felt. It is a dance. A transference. An intimacy. It is to touch and awaken another human in a place they hadn't known was aching, or sleeping. Both are opened. Both are nourished. Both are transformed." ~Victoria Erickson.

  Tiffany is a metaphysical artist to the core.  She creates beautiful dream catchers, jewelry, and more.  It's a therapeutic process for her as she struggles with autoimmune illness as well as cognition and physical limitations.   In the past she has battled PTSD from sexual trauma and assault as well as depression.  Through creating art she heals and brings joy to so many others with her magical creations.

  Nature plays a big role in Tiffany's life and it's also a large part of her healing journey.  So I aimed to capture her inner light as she gazed at the trees and embraced their healing properties.  She is a fierce warrior fighting for her health and peace of mind so it was important to capture her fire within , her shadows, and her light. 

  This woodsy witch possesses so much strength and beauty and it was an honor to connect with her and share this magical experience with her.  The snow covered landscape and the stillness of winter's beauty provided the perfect backdrop as we ebbed and flowed through the woods exchanging energy, love, and light.
