If you’re here, it means that you’ve been checking out my work, and that you think photographs of your family are important. I couldn’t agree more! Delivering real, true to life, images of your baby’s giggles, and your family’s moments together is what I strive to do. Photography is something that has been a part of me since junior high school, it literally feels like a part of my being, and I know that in some form or another I’ll be doing photography for the rest of my life.
hello! I'm erika
I shoot film. Why? Oh, so many reasons. I could talk for days about how beautiful film is, how much I love the grain, the colors, how it makes me connect with my clients because I have to slow down and think about what I’m doing…. all of those things. There’s also a certain nostalgia about it. All the photos of me from my childhood were on film, and guess what? My parents still have those negatives. Negatives that I can take to a lab, have printed, and hang on my wall. Film negatives don’t crash. They don’t disappear into an icloud abyss, they don’t get lost somewhere on a hard drive never to surface again. Among the many many reasons I shoot film, that is the biggest one. The images I create for you and your family are images that can stick around for a long long time. Your grandkids might find these negatives one day, when things like the icloud sound archaic, and they’ll be able to look at them, print them, and reminisce over them as though the session was yesterday. Who wouldn’t want that?
Ok, now down to business. The real questions you have about a session, what to expect, what to wear and all that good stuff. Head on over to the FAQ page and I’ll tell you all about it!
