my philosophy
Think of your favorite photo. My guess is it wasn’t taken by saying cheese or posing awkwardly for the camera. So why should a photographer ask you to do either? A good photographer doesn’t force a shot, or direct their subject into painful poses. A good photographer sets their subject at ease, evokes a feeling, or prompts a candid moment and shoots the result. I design and direct my sessions around this concept. Fun, connected sessions produce fun, connected photos. Simple as that.

about me
While attending college at UW, I apprenticed under a fantastic Seattle film photographer, shooting weddings and learning the ins and outs of shoots. Committed to my career “plan”, however, I got my masters in business and spent a decade in sales and marketing, keeping photography just a side hustle.

After my son was born in 2012, I couldn’t ignore my calling anymore. I quit my director role at a sustainability startup and became a full-time photographer. Photography never ceases to challenge or excite me. I love this work, love growing my art, and will undoubtedly still have a camera in my hand when I’m 90. If genuine photos are your thing, let’s work together!!



WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Brooke + Jesse
Erin is amazing! We have used her for family pictures many times and each time the photos came out perfectly. She does a great job of getting our baby to smile and laugh. She is able to get a great variety of poses and backgrounds, and is open to recreating any specific shots we want, while understanding that time is limited when shooting with a toddler. She also does a great job of catching all those little moments in between poses that showcase everyday life as a parent.

Elle + Brendan
Erin came to Thailand to photograph our destination wedding. From capturing candid moments, putting even complete strangers at ease, she was thorough, kind and did an amazing job. In the months leading up to the wedding, brought a sense of enthusiasm and her post-wedding followup was just as friendly and dedicated. Erin is that perfect combination of talent, thoughtful professionalism, and grace.

Megan + Ben
Erin shot our wedding and she was able to capture the day exactly as my husband and I remember it. She is that remarkable combination of easy-going, detail-oriented, and creative. I have nothing but amazing things to say about Erin and her photography, and would recommend her to anyone. This gal is the real deal.

Erin took both my maternity and newborn photos and they are amazing. She captured our family perfectly, I highly recommend her - she is an awesome artist. She is a new mom herself, was so accommodating of our newborn little guy, and had all the tricks to keep him calm and happy through the shoot.
