As the memories start to fade, the images will endure
Welcoming new life into this world is an incredible blessing, and I love capturing this special time in your family's story.
As a mom myself, I know how stressful it can be those early days with a newborn, especially for first-time parents! That's why it's so important to me that my clients have an enjoyable, stress-free session experience. I'll take care of everything before, during, and after your session so you can sit back and enjoy these precious moments.
"The BEST photographer I could ever ask for! In addition to her being so welcoming and kind, she was on point with everything, and made things SO comfortable and easy, even with tackling 3 kids and a mama who was 7 days postpartum. I had such an amazing experience with her! And I couldn’t have asked for better photos! Amazing quality to say the least! I’m looking forward to working with her from now on and continuing into the future. I couldn’t have asked for better Maternity/Newborn/Family pictures. Thank you again!!!" - Lacey C.
It's amazing how much a baby changes in their first year! In the blink of an eye, that little newborn nugget is sitting up on their own, crawling, sprouting little baby teeth, even walking! All of these "firsts" are precious and fleeting– you won't want to miss a moment!
I offer a variety of Baby's First Year Milestone options, from a single session to multiple session bundles.
"Erika is fabulous! Very patient and flexible with my twins. Looking forward to working with her to capture more memories!" – Melissa S.
It's the big ONE!
Celebrate baby's special day with a super fun Smash + Splash Birthday session! Milestone portraits, cake smashing, and a clean-up in the baby tub!
"Erika’s work is amazing! She was so patient and kind with my 1 year-old twins. It was about 100 degrees the day of our photo shoot and it didn’t faze her, nor did the craziness of twins! I would highly recommend her and can’t wait to use her for family photos in the future!" – Sara H.
Mothers-to-be have a unique beauty all their own. It's an incredible transformation that women go through with each pregnancy– truly a special time to be remembered in their family's story!
Maternity sessions are available to clients when they book a newborn session, and the Bump + Baby bundles also include a discount on the maternity session fee.
"It was awesome working with Erika. She was very friendly and definitely made you feel comfortable. She did our maternity and newborn session. Both pictures turned out amazing!" – Tiffany L.
Whether it's a newborn cuddled on daddy's chest, the unabashed laughter of a tickled toddler, a quiet moment in the arms of your love... these are the kinds of memories that should be preserved forever. Memories that create the unique story of your family.
"Erika is so patient and kind! She always gets amazing photos and we have 3 young kids who can be stinkers about getting their picture taken. How does she do that?! My daughter was so grumpy the entire session this summer, yet in the photos you would never know! I’d recommend Erika to anyone and will be back for more sessions in the future! Thank you Erika for capturing my sweet family and the forever memories of them at this precious young age." – Kimberly M.
Mini Session specials run throughout the year and are fun for updated photos of the kids or the whole family!
Each mini session event is limited edition and features a different theme/set– they often sell out quickly! Make sure to follow my social pages for the sneak peeks prior to when booking opens!
"Erika was amazing! We couldn’t have asked for an easier, more comfortable Christmas session. We love all the photos so much! She really did an incredible job! I would recommend her to anyone." – Abigail S.
