Meet Erika

 

Hello There!

        Thank you so very much for your interest in my photography services.  As a mother of three, I know how stressful it can be to take photos as a family, which is why I have customized a very laid back and organic, ALL-INCLUSIVE photographic experience.  

I want to photograph your family exactly as they are. I believe that great photos are MUCH more than just saying “cheese” and looking at the camera. They should capture your family’s personalities and you should be able to feel the emotion when looking at them.

I want to make this whole experience as simple and painless for you as possible, so I will guide you through the entire process. I will help you with outfit suggestions as well as pick the best location based on your family’s personalities and interests. When it’s all over I will present to you all the photos that are the best of the best! And on top of delivering ALL the digital files to you, I will also design a beautiful heirloom photo book filled with up with your favorite images from your session!

My clients mean the world to me, which is why I have crafted photography sessions like no other to ensure I deliver unforgettable memories that you, your family  and your friends can treasure forever. Photography is more than my passion and I strive to deliver a totally awesome experience to you … one that you will be happy to recommend to your friends.


Q & A’s:

What is your style?

    I specialize in laid back organic sessions that do not feel overly posed and stiff.  I take my time making sure my clients are comfortable to ensure I get relaxed and genuine expressions.   All of my sessions are captured outdoors (except newborn) and are customized to fit your family's style and needs.    

Do you direct us during a session?

    Yes. I typically will give you general directions as to where to stand and in which direction to face.  I will also give direction to capture pure and genuine expressions. 

How long does it take to get our photos?

7-14 days

What areas do you serve?

I am currently serving North and South Carolina.  I reside in Fort Mill, SC and will travel up to 20 miles from here.

  I can travel further for an additional charge.     


A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME:

I am a California native (born and raised in San Diego), but have called Fort Mill, SC home since 2009. 

      I am a mother of three crazy kiddos and a wife to an incredibly supportive man. 

My photography venture started when I was in high school as a photographer for my year book committee.  I lived in the darkroom and I instantly fell in love with the whole process of developing photos.

   Once I graduated high school, I  attended the University of Michigan with the intention to major in something that allowed me to be creative. But being an athlete,  my competition schedule didn't allow for me to be a part of the Art School,  so I ended up settling for a degree in General Studies.

  In 2009, after giving birth to my second daughter,  my husband surprised me with my first DSLR camera and I instantly re-found my passion for  photography all over again!  Since then, I have not put my camera down and I have decided to share my passion with other families.    

      On top of being a photographer I am also a part-time preschool teacher and I absolutely love what I do!  It warms my heart knowing that I can both impact little people's lives as well as provide families with images that they will cherish for a lifetime. 

I can't wait to work with you!

   XOXOX, 

Erika
