  • Laura & Perry

  • Two weeks ago today we said goodbye to 2015.  The new year always gives us reason to pause and think about where we're at in life.  I can tell you with great certainty that when 2015 started, I had no idea how it would end.  I didn't know I would start a photography business, and I would have never guessed that we'd be [...]
  • A Thousand Words

  • There is a saying (one we've all heard) that a picture is worth a thousand words.  As a photographer, I believe that firmly.  A thousand words, and so much more...

  • Capturing Thanksgiving - VLOG

This is the deal, though, people: if it connects to someone, encourages anyone, and propel [...]

"Dear Erin, Unfortunately we are declining your sub [...]
  • Not Just a Photographer

  • Its crazy how much can change in such a short time, isn't it?  Six months ago I was terrified to call myself a photographer.  I was intimidated by the assumptions it would seem I was making about myself if I did.  Now, a few months later, I am constantly needing to remind myself that there is more to me - who I am and [...]
  • Family Pictures with the Fourniers

  • Last night I had the fabulous privilege of hanging out with this cool crew and taking some pictures!!  We had a blast, and these two boys could not have been more photogenic... seriously.  They were hamming it up for me at all the perfect moments.  Every time I start a family shoot I get this adrenaline rush and pure e [...]
