Elaine contacted me for a Spirit Session a month or so ago. She shared with me that she is in the process of adopting a child and was needing photos documenting her life for a book that is to be presented to birth mothers. Being very camera shy, Elaine felt Spirit Sessions may help her find a more confident and relaxed way of being in front of the camera. This of course was super important for the purpose of these photographs. I felt honored that Elaine was entrusting me with such an important task, that would ultimately play a large role in connecting her with her child.
Spirit Sessions are designed to create a space to process where you are in your life and what you are ready to welcome in next. I take in all that you share and mirror back for you the beauty and opportunity that lies before you through my perspective. In a way it is like having a gentle spiritual alignment. An affirmation that you can embrace yourself as perfect just as and where you are, while still welcoming change. Sometimes journeying to a new space, whether it is metaphorical or physical brings along so many components that we become a bit off kilter and afraid. In The Spirit Sessions I assist you in grounding and centering into what you are creating .
Here are a few favorite pictures I captured of Elaine, and below she shares what the experience was like for her.
Trey got to spend some time with Elaine. She taught him how to blow bubble gum bubbles and I caught some of the fun.
Elaine…thank you for sharing your story with me, and for bringing laughter and joy to us. You are a lighthearted beautiful soul and a natural mama. I look forward to celebrating with you when you are finally connected with your child .
“Thea helped me in a much deeper way than I ever expected, and in a way that I desperately needed and didn’t even know it. I felt remarkably cared for. She is so present and quick to understand what is needed, and made the whole process which I would normally dread, really, really fun! I kept thinking that how incredibly smart and ingenious these spirit session are. They were even therapeutic in a wonderfully creative, joyful way. I look forward to doing more again sometime in the future!” ~ Elaine
