  • I always say 1.5-2.5/3 is the toughest age to photograph...(you can’t quite bribe them yet -never above bribing at a session 🤷🏼‍♀️ - and they are very much asserting their independence) but man, it sure makes for fun candids as we all try our hardest to do the silliest things for smiles!! They always turn into my favorite moments!

  • First post of 2020!
I used to not be much of a goal setter, but I’ve become more intentional about it the past few years. Yes, there are things we can focus on all year, but it’s refreshing to think of the year as a blank slate for new ideas on life improvements. Here’s a few of mine for the year, I’d love to hear some of yours!
1. Continue to reduce waste in our house. Last year we focused on bringing our own grocery bags and YAY Oregon finally makes you pay for bags at checkout. Hooray! I just ordered reusable veggie bags for the store as well as reusable plastic bags for snacks and such. Also, trying to cut down on paper towel waste and will be going to try and use rag squares from old sewing material I never used from that sewing career that never quite took off. 
2. Continuing education: looking for a workshop or a retreat that will help fill my soul. I got so much out of the one day @letsgoworkshop in 2018 and ideally I’d love something on the west coast... now taking any recs my fellow photographers!
Also, since it’s my DREAM to one day flip houses but i can barely hang a picture, my husband and i are looking into my home DIY classes, such as the @rebuildingcenter! Ah, a date night learning about circular saws...sounds dreamy to me!
3. Yolo. Say yes more, be more intentional about connecting with friends and community, get outside more and show Rowan more of her playground here in the PNW. Also, I’m hoping to make it out to backpack at least once this year!! I haven’t done it since I was 11...so um, it’s time!
4. Get my damn tattoo!! I wanted a floral piece for about four+ years now, and I’ve narrowed it down to a few artists, but it’s nearly impossible to get on their books (cough *wonderland* cough) I’ll take some recommendations!
Love this shot from when I second shot with @andreazajoncphotography in 2019!
Where is the new year going to take you? .

This decade was a DOOZY in so many ways. It sure didn’t start off the best: When it began, I had been in Oregon just 2 months and 2010 was one of the hardest years of my life thus far. Though with heartache brought a rebirth for me and the rest of the decade had no where to go but up! 
I spent some good time getting to know ME, and a result, I spent a decade meeting so many new people, exploring new places and embracing my new part for the country. I threw my self into work and also decided to pursue my passion which led to the birth of @erinelizabethphotographypdx in 2013!
 For fun, I put a “start” and “end” as a way to compliment my 2019 #topnine. I still can’t believe how much I continue to grow every year!
I met my amazing husband at the end of 2012, and we sure had some adventures before we welcomed our perfect little girl into this work on 2017. We got married and became homeowners in 2014, and purchased our second home in 2019.
In addition, over this decade, I traveled to 7 new countries this decade, ran one full marathon and witnessed my first live birth, celebrated 10 years at my day job.
I’ve come so far and yet I have so far to go! Now here’s to the roaring 20’s (I find it funny to say that as we go into the next decade...)
Cheers everyone! .

  • I’m currently in southern California savoring the last few days of sunshine until we go back to grey, wet, soggy days in Oregon. The bright side is that at least days will slowly get longer! This is the first year the weather has really gotten to me and I’m also sad we haven’t had any snow (and I’m pretty sure we didn’t have any last winter?!) So cheers to remembering sunny days and here’s to the warm sun shine while I still have it!

  • End of year countdowns have me thinking back on what an amazing year this has been. Maybe my best year yet?! New couples met, new families made, new babies to hold. But also some love stories to watch unfold, some children who have grown a foot from the last time I saw them. This little business of mine is so much more than just that. I am honored to have been witness to all that my lenses have captured. 
Now...who’s ready for a snow session? #tistheseason .
