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. “

Angus is a sweet spitfire of a ninja. He was much fun to get to play and photograph back in the spring! Seeing these photos again have me so excited to start up the Fall/Winter series of Simple Sessions – there’s already a wait list for them!!! So if you want to be one of the first to get notified please let me know! The first installment will probably around Thanksgiving. How sweet would these photos be for holiday gifts?! ;)

By the way, there are only 125 days till Christmas. Just so ya know.

But for now, keep enjoying the warm and delightful summer sunshine!


August 11, 2014 · Personal, Portraits, The Simple Sessions

To be an artist is to have something deep inside you that needs ignition; a yearning that calls to be awakened. To be an artist is to cultivate that fire into a vision; organic, unique, representative of whom you are as an individual. Anyone can call themselves an artist, but many are merely imitations struggling to be a lesser version of somebody else. It is those who never stray, those who commit to who they are, those who believe there is purpose in keeping the fire ignited that will succeed. 


It has been a pretty intense year for me personally. And I needed to push myself creatively. Staying in one place is not ok with me – my gypsy heart – and I think it is important to change things up and break your own barriers.

More from this session coming soon…

I seriously cannot put into words how much I love this simple session. These two cousins were a riot together – already filled with personality and gusto! Each image just makes me aww, smile or laugh. And seriously, what is more adorable than nakey baby bottoms?! TWO nakey baby bottoms!

Cy is just the sweetest boy – with his rocking tie and blue glasses!

The simple sessions were so incredibly fun! Just long enough for little ones attention spans and to get some great images of them in the moment! I can’t wait to do another set of them during winter! I have started a list of people for the sessions (as they will be first come, first serve) so if you want to make sure you get a spot, let me know soon, and to lock in the current rate! :)
