THERE IS A
SIMPLE BEAUTY
IN THE EVERYDAY

Something kind of wonderful happens when we strip away the pretenses and allow the truth to emerge. When we honor what's authentic and special about our lives. When we let everything just be.

Your daily life may not always be pretty. Some days are sweet and some are sticky; sometimes things are tidy and sometimes everything is a hot mess. But your everyday is your truth, and if you ask me, every family's truth has a simple beauty that deserves to be saved and savored.

As your photographer, I'm not just photographing you; I'm photographing your life happening.

Let's redefine the family photo. Because real is pretty darn amazing.

 
Erika immediately had everyone at ease and was able to document our family interacting naturally. Our children immediately took to her, allowing her to capture their true personalities and interactions with each other.

HELLO THERE! I'M ERIKA.

 

I learned to drive on a 1979 Volkswagen Rabbit, I'm a pretty good Scrabble player, and I'm old enough to remember the wonderful simplicity of life before smartphones existed.

It's a wonderful thing to see ourselves through someone else's eyes; to have a chance to see that, in the end, it's all good, it's all beautiful, and it's everything that it's supposed to be.

Even the messy bits.
