Hi there! I am Erin.
I am a busy mom to three beautiful and spontaneously delightful little girls, who are the reason I take pictures.
I am a free spirited, easily excitable, and artistic introvert who is married to my opposite and my best friend, who makes me coffee every morning.
I love handwritten letters, homemade cookies, and ballads by 70's singers and songwriters. I get super excited about each new season, and I love learning new hobbies. I enjoy playing with my girls, tending my chickens, and attempting to be an “Urban Homesteader” here in Tacoma.
I pretty much always enjoy French press coffee, and curling up with a good book. I love cooking healthy, local, organic, and seasonal, but I have a weakness for good pizza, peanut butter cups, and ice cream.
I believe that every human being is created in the image of God, and is uniquely and profoundly beautiful. I find joy in using photography to help people see the beauty in themselves, their families, and even their not so pinterest-perfect lives. I think there is beauty in the messy, the overwhelming, the wonderful and the tragic moments of life, more than in a perfectly posed portrait.
So, why should you hire a documentary photographer? Because when your kids look back at photos of their lives, they want to see you in the picture, not behind the camera! So, call me for the birthday party, the family reunion, the Saturday morning pancake tradition, the Christmas tree cutting, or the moment your little one enters the world. I want to help you capture these memories- not posed or scripted, just the beauty and reality of you, being you.
I look forward to getting to know you, and helping to tell your story through pictures.
