I'M ERIKA, THE GIRL BEHIND THE LENS CAPTURING ALL THE LOVE, LAUGHTER, AND MEMORIES IN BETWEEN.
i'm glad you're here
I'm excited we've found eachother and I hope to connect with you soon!
A bit about me... I'm an outdoor enthusiast and fun-loving momma to my son Oliver James and four-legged English Labrador Gus. Photography has quickly become my deepest passion and greatest blessing. I honestly have the BEST job in the world because I work with clients in such meaningful ways. From large weddings and intimate elopements, to a maternity or family milestone session, I consider myself lucky to be a part of your amazing memories. I particularly love documenting my clients in locations that highlight the amazing landscape that is our backyard here in the beautiful PNW. If you're in need of a photographer to capture a special moment or significant milestone, I'd love to hear from you. Now let's have some fun!
Photography can sometimes get a bad rap, mostly based on outdated norms. I believe that your experience with me should be enjoyable - after all, we're capturing YOUR amazing memories. The last 6 years have taught me that creating an authentic atmosphere will lend itself to the most amazing results. I pride myself in building friendships with my clients, providing important insight to a couple in preparation of wedding day, and even finding calm within the chaos of a family shoot. Every session is an opportunity to connect and I'm here for it all!
Where do I begin...:) Loving my family. Living a mission-based life. Spending time in nature. Pushing myself outside my comfort zone even when it scares me. Investing in friendships who become family. Enjoying an oatmilk latte, especially on a crisp fall day. Traveling solo. Laughing so hard that my cheeks hurt. Connecting with people on an emotional level. Petting all the dogs. Setting a new goal and reaching it. Enjoying taco Tuesdays with friends. Walking the Oregon Coast at sunset and last but certainly not least, finding peace in the messy adventure we call life.
While in my 30's, a dear friend challenged me to make a '30 things to do in my 30's' list. Fast-forward a decade and I'm still hooked on this concept. I believe setting goals, trying new things, and challenging oneself never goes out of style. A few things on my horizon are:
Shoot in more national parks
Complete a triathlon
Hike a section of the Pacific Crest Trail
Join a book club
Visit Iceland, Portugal or Peru
Take my mom to Kauai for her 70th!
