LIFE ISN'T ALWAYS
SUNSHINE AND RAINBOWS

Some days are lovely, some are messy. Some days try your patience, and some leave your heart feeling more full than you ever imagined.

I have a feeling that years from now, when we look back, we're going to discover just how wonderful it all was.

Something is missing, though. Most of the time, we don't think to bring along a photographer because it seems like nothing special is happening.

But something pretty lovely and amazing is happening.

It's called your life.

It's delicious and it's irritating, it brings great joys and great pains, it's both sticky and sweet. And all of it is worthy of saving and savoring.

I can help you turn your seemingly everyday moments into great photos that you'll want to hang on your wall and hold in your heart.

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

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

 
 
 
 
 

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.

The only thing I like better than hanging out with my family is hanging out with families like yours, where I can make pictures that help you discover the sweet beauty hiding in everyday life.
