Erika has done our family photos for two years now. Each photo shoot was a wonderful experience and the photos have been stellar! She has a calm, casual demeanor which puts our children at ease but still provides great ideas and direction to get beautiful and touching family photos. We would recommend her to anyone as our annual holiday card would be lost without her.
I can't say enough excellent things about Erika! Most importantly, her photos of our family are beautiful. She was able to capture the small, ordinary details of our interactions which we will cherish for many years. She was kind, patient and very caring with my two young children and made us all feel very comfortable while she worked. We will definitely be using Erika again!
We recently had our first professional family photo shoot with Erika and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. From the very beginning, Erika made us all feel at ease and she developed an immediate connection with my children. The photo session was relaxed and natural. Erika captured many stunning images that truly express the individual personalities of my kids and images of our family that we will cherish forever. I can't wait to display these photos in my home and share them with our family and friends. Erika is patient, professional and talented and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.
I was not disappointed when I chose Erika to photograph our newborn. She spent the morning with my husband and I and took some pretty incredible shots of not only the little one, but us as a family! I am in LOVE with our photos! Erika really did a great job capturing such a special time in our lives as new parents. For that I am grateful to her and look forward to more sessions with her as our family grows!
Photographing four boys 7-11 years old is no easy task! Erika made it a fun experience for my sons and a joy for me, I am so in love with the photos! I asked Erika to capture the essence of childhood and she couldn't have done a better job.
Erika was amazing with my 3 year old! She made him laugh and smile and brought out his fun side despite it being nap time during our shoot! Additionally, despite the dreadful weather, our photographs came out amazing! I cannot speak highly enough of Erika's creativity and patience with kids! Highly recommend!!
Erika is truly amazing. Her natural talent and warm personality makes the session a breeze even with a toddler. Loved her natural and style in our family photo shoots. We have a huge print of her work at our home and we don't stop getting compliments on it. I can't wait for the next time for her to capture our memories.
Erika is a true talent. The requests we asked of her were not simple... we asked her to capture photographs of three different extensions of our family in a short amount of time before the guys "had enough." Erika could not have been more wonderful to work with. She has that really positive, easy-going energy about her; the kind that just makes everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. The result of our time with Erika was a stunning set of photographs that were used as holiday card photos, engagement photos, and lots of shots that were framed on the walls of many family member's homes. Thank you, Erika! We feel so lucky to have discovered you!
While her photos truly speak for themselves, one of the most wonderful parts of doing a session with Erika is that her true passion for the art of photography shines through. Sessions are relaxed, natural, and free flowing, and she works with you to make sure you've accomplished everything you'd hoped for. Being a mother herself, she understands the finicky nature of children and works with them to help even the most stubborn and uncooperative children somehow yield to her camera lens. I can't wait for more sessions to come to see what beautiful memories Erika will capture of my family.
