about Erin

I have been a photographer at heart for nearly all my life. In high school I worked as a photographer's assistant and loved every second of it. I started my college career as a photography major but the love for children tugged at my heart so strongly that I changed to elementary education. 

After teaching kindergarten for six years, I became a full time mom and fell in love with photography again. I have been married for twelve wonderful years and have two amazing children. They are probably among the most photographed children in the world. 

I decided to pursue a career in photography after friends started asking me to take their family portraits. My casual style and easy interaction with children and adults help capture the essence of a family. That perfect moment is a lasting legacy that your children and their children will appreciate for years and years to come.
