A million suns

December 23, 2016 · Announcements, Families, Film


Sounds of laughter, shades of life
Are ringing through my opened ears
Inciting and inviting me.
Limitless undying love, which
Shines around me like a million suns,
It calls me on and on across the universe


Showing families and people and even doggies how beautiful they are is my happy place. Letting people see their beautiful bonds and side-eyes and giggles and quiet love is what my goal is. Let me show you your beauty in 2017. I’m offering a (very super rare) discount on family & portrait sessions for 2017 if you book by Dec. 30th. Hit me up for details.

Spring Simple Sessions!

February 3, 2015 · Announcements, Kids, The Simple Sessions

Simple Sessions are specifically designed to let your childs(ren) personality shine through. These kid focused sessions are fun, fast, and always super adorable (because obviously your kid is super adorable!). These sessions are a great way to get updated photos of your kids showcasing their personalities. I strongly encourage they bring their special things that they are into (lovies, favorite toys/book, anything special).

You can see how sweet, silly and awesome these sessions are from some of last years sessions:

Camden & Harlow in a Simple Session

What their mom had to say:

“We have been lucky enough to work with Erika in nearly every type of session/photography she offers, and the Simple Session remains one of my very favorite. The joy, innocence, silliness and exuberance kids have all on their own was exposed and captured beautifully with the simplicity of the white background. The setting of the Simple Session paired with Erika’s artistic eye, and her ability make my kids feel comfortable provided amazing pictures – much much more than we could have hoped for; I plan to do Simple Sessions for my kids time and time again to truly highlight in photographs everything they are as kids!”

Milo & Colt in a Simple Session

“Our simple session was a wonderful experience. In addition to being endlessly patient and flexible with the kids, Erika captured their personality and spark to create priceless photos for our family. The setting was easy and stress free, the prices were affordable, and I would recommend them to anyone, again and again. “
