  • Minis with a Mission

  • Last week I announced a series of mini sessions that I'll be offering this fall. It is an opportunity to make a positive impact in this world, all while creating beautiful images in this paradise we call home. Today I'm going to announce the specific dates and details and begin booking - but before we get to the detail [...]
  • Rose Colored Lenses

  • Several months back I started something called the "Wholehearted Newsletter." It was a heartfelt attempt to utilize a consistent and easily accessible medium for spreading encouragement and love. I had the best of intentions, you know... I think it went out a solid 3 times. Maybe 4. In other words, it was a wi [...]
  • The Princess Sessions

  • The Princess Sessions are an idea that began brewing in my mind a few months ago.  I am so excited that the day is finally here for me to officially announce this project and begin scheduling sessions!! While photography is a passion of mine, it is not my only focus. Even more important to me is finding ways of spreadi [...]
  • When You're Overwhelmed

  • This week in the wholehearted newsletter I shared a vlog post that includes a fun little photography tip at the end!!  With that in mind, I decided to share it with you all here as well, in case you're looking for a way to capture even more fantastic images of the people you love most. I hope that as I share my meth [...]
  • Introducing Prints and More

  • When Rejection Stings

  • A few weeks ago I submitted to an online organization to be considered for their "pro" status.  I did it on a complete whim of courage, confidence and crazy.  I've been waiting super patiently (definitely not) to hear back, and this morning I finally got the email. "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 [...]
  • The Creativity Gift

  • Today when the kids arrived home from school they dropped their backpacks and immediately ran to the playground.  They were armed with flip flops and sticks to reenact scenes from Harry Potter.  I decided to follow them out with my camera because, hello cuteness.  As I sat at my computer uploading the pictures later I [...]
  • We Can All Be Awesome

  • A few weeks ago I returned from a lovely vacation at my parent’s house in Colorado. Some of my favorite things about being there are slow mornings, coffee, and long chats in the kitchen with my mom. One particular morning she was telling me about a horse show she was at recently. There was a group of more seasoned ladi [...]
  • I am a photographer.

  • I bought my first DSLR 3 years ago. My best friend from high school had become this amazing and highly sought after photographer, and I desperately wanted to learn how to capture my own children the way she managed to capture hers and coutless others… At first, it was just a desire to document our family and not to [...]
