clean, classic, timeless

Hi! I'm Erin! I'm excited you're here because it means you value family photography and are searching for the perfect photographer to capture gorgeous images of your baby. You're in the right place!

I specialize in "white studio" style newborn photography. You won't find a lot of distracting bright colors, props, or unnatural filter tones in my photos. Instead, you'll see clean, timeless images that focus on your baby's unique features.

Classic images will showcase the newest love of your life without becoming dated or mocked (I'm talking to you laser beam yearbook photos!).

Let's work together to plan a newborn session that's both stress-free and endearing. Click the button below to read more about me and my Grand Rapids area studio.

You know these moments are fleeting, right? You hear that all the time! You feel those first uterine flutters, then you're skin-to-skin with a wrinkly, wide-eyed newborn. Suddenly that chubby-cheeked baby is starting her first day of school, or learning to drive, or walking across the stage to accept a diploma. And you sit there in disbelief wondering where did the time go. It's so cliche, but so so true.

capture these moments

You don't have to settle for *just* memories. Let me capture your family's history in portraits that can be cherished for generations. Your memory WILL eventually fade, but that giant archival quality canvas showcasing your brand new bundle's long eyelashes and pouty lips will not.

So stop passively letting these times in your life fly by! Move your family's legacy to the top of your to-do list. Send me a message so we can start brainstorming the perfect session that preserves the ones you love IN. THIS. MOMENT.

After deciding you want to schedule a session, I'll send you a booking proposal. That's where you'll choose your package, sign the contract, and pay the retainer fee. Once the proposal is completed, your session will officially be added to my schedule.

We'll then start the fun process of planning for your session. Depending on your session type, this may include questionnaires, welcome guides, or prep guides. You'll be kept informed and involved in the entire process to ensure your expectations are met.

Proof Gallery

Shortly after your session, you'll receive your proofing gallery. This is where you'll choose your favorites from lightly-edited, watermarked photos. If you love more than the number of images included in your package, you'll have the option to purchase additional images also.

"Erin made the newborn photography session a dream. She made me and my baby feel comfortable, was well prepared, and helped to make the whole experience fun and stress free. Her communication was excellent beforehand and she even provided helpful info to help the session run smoothly. Her studio is beautiful and she had everything needed for the session. All I had to do was show up with a fed and sleepy baby! The photos she captured of my 1 week old baby are stunning. We love and treasure them."
