hi. welcome! pour a cup of coffee and stay awhile. i'm erika. i am inspired by light, locations, nature, architecture & design, texture, color, fashion, art, music and most of all love. life is beautiful and i love photographing every moment. i have a passion for lifestyle photography and capturing pure, genuine and raw emotion whether it be love between a family, laughter of children, wonder of a toddler, innocence of a sweet baby, anticipation of birth or the miracle of new life. i believe in doing what you love and love what you are doing. while i have a degree in psychology and interior design and a love for both, i finally figured out what i want to be when i grow up, a photographer. i feel very grateful and honored to capture life's most precious moments. If you want to get a feel for my style just look at my work. I like to combine lifestyle photography with modern portraiture. when i am not taking pictures and editing i am spending time with my dashing husband Cam, two beautiful children Sophia and Finnegan + a teacup yorkie named bam-bam. my kids are my muse and what got me started in photography. i also love coffee, summers, running, crafting, cooking, creating things with my kids, watching modern family with my honey, family dance parties, the beach, anthropologie, spicy food...ok food in general, traveling, a captivating book, my family and friends, a good glass of red wine and most of all God who makes all things possible. thanks for stopping by!
