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 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.

How will you remember 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.

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. I highly recommend using Erin for your newborn photos!!

Erin has been taking photos of our family for 6 years. She is absolutely amazing. Always calm and infinitely patient, she gets great shots every time despite the antics of our four active boys. Her photos are flawless and always show the character of each family member. The quality of her work is phenomenal. I have also had two newborn sessions with Erin. She made each baby totally cozy and comfortable and went to great lengths to make every shot perfect. The photos from each session were out of this world fantastic. They are absolutely my most prized possessions.

I always hope for at least one great shot, and I always end up having a hard time narrowing down my selection because she captures so many amazing pictures!!! She is very patient, professional, and does so well with kids. I will definitely be calling her for this year’s family photos."
