"Hello my Dear Karla.
Wow, I am starting to tear up trying to find the right words to convey my heartfelt gratitude. What started out as a gift for someone else, turned out to be one of the best gifts I could ever give myself. It was one of THE most liberating and empowering things I could have done, and it was only possible with your guidance, reassurance and beautiful, gentle manner. From the bottom of my heart Karla, thank you!"
"Karla, the photos are absolutely outstanding! Thank you. Thank you, not just for the pictures which are so tasteful and awesome, but also for what it has done for my wife. For 13 years we've been together and I've tried to tell her how beautiful she is but I don't think she ever believed me. She sees it now. When you sent her the teaser, she even said, "You have to see this. If you hung it on your wall, no one would ever know it's me!" I told her she was right. "It is a beautiful picture, but Honey, it does look like you." You should have seen her Saturday night. She was absolutely a knock out! Thank you again. You are doing much more than photography. When my wife sees herself as beautiful as she is, my life only gets better.
Husband of C.
"Hi Karla. I can't begin to explain how the experience boosted my confidence. I remember thinking the day of the shoot that I looked like a porcelain doll, and I didn't feel like me. I am normally not the type of person to wear makeup and to do my hair all pretty-like. And to be honest I still don't. But what I do know is that I intended to have a remarkable gift for D, and I got that and so much more! After seeing the pictures for the first time, I thought "Wow, those are tasteful and I am beautiful!" At that moment I truly felt beautiful both inside and out. When D saw the pictures he told me a) you were an amazing photographer and b) he absolutely loved how you were able to capture in my eyes the immeasurable amounts of love I have for him. He also told me that what I was seeing in the pictures, he sees everyday in me. He is so sweet.
The experience you have provided me was empowering, invigorating and fun! I will never forget that experience and will treasure it forever!
