Erika Kao Photography  |  Bergen County Photographer  |  Ridgewood, New Jersey

Stacey and Michael have invited me to photograph their family a few times now, and each time, my camera seems to love them a little bit more.

As the mother of two little ones, I understand well the joys and challenges that make parenthood so interesting.  The beauty of being a photographer is that when it comes to children, my job is simply to allow them to be themselves, whether they're squealing with joy or having a contemplative moment.  And that allows me to catch and capture them at their most pure nature.

If I can provide a family with a few photos of their family simply being themselves, then I have succeeded at my job.
