"No water, no life. No blue, no green."
- Sylvia Earle
  • "I explained to her what I wanted and why; an underwater shoot as I had almost drowned as a child, I wanted to conquer my fear! During our first skype consultation, I felt as if I had known Erena all of my life. I give all thanks to Erena because she made me feel comfortable and I was able to put my face under water after 36 years! I am so glad she captured these beautiful memories for me and my unborn son."

Her work is amazing and she really is a true artist. She was on time/ready and really made it feel effortless. We would recommend her to anyone anytime! She even made us cookies!!! Thank you so much Erena!!!"
