  • This industry is tough. You constantly compare yourselves to the millions of other photographers out there, you never quite feel good enough, and just when you think you’re starting to get it together, something hits you that makes you want to run away all together. 
Wait, am I talking about motherhood or photography?! Both I guess!
@letsgoworkshop was what I needed to get out of my head and back into my heart. This session tonight with was what I needed for a reset. Sometimes it’s okay to slow down, wait for the moment, and take it all in. 
This. This moment. This is the why. More of the this.
Just like photography, you have all of this noise and self doubt and moments of frustration, then you have moments like this. Then it’s all worth it and it’s the best thing you’ve ever done. .

  • I thought that now that I have a real life baby model 24/7, I would do a lot more posed beautiful photos of my angelic little girl. Slightly posed, perfect outfits, staged sweetness 
Due to a crazy combination of #reallife and #nosleepformonths #mamaaintgottimeforthat ,I instead find myself enjoying moments like these so.much.more. I actually tried (and to be honest failed) to capture one non-iPhone photo a day while on maternity leave. Those ended up to be some of my most favorite photos, because they take me back to that exact moment. After spending time at the @letsgoworkshop yesterday, it was hearing stories inspired by truly amazing photographers that reminded me of why am doing this in the first place. To capture moments like these. The first photo isn’t even the right focus, but I don’t care. I look at these photos of my amazing husband and the relationship he has with our daughter, and I am immediately placed into these moments. I can hear the delight in his voice, the smile when she looks at him, the joy that it brings me inside. I feel love in these photos. I want more of this, I want to bring more of these moments in, I want you to be part of these moments with me. .

  • ok ya’ll: a little bit more personal. I  wanted to share some of my most favorite moments that I was lucky enough to have captured through amazing fellow photographers. Looking at some of these moments, I realize the theme that draws me to them and what I always hoped to capture in my own photographs: intimate moments, the sweeping beauty around us, and genuine interaction. The first photo still makes me 😭. **Soapbox: The one piece of advice I give expecting parents: hire a birth photographer!! (Ok, well not me but as I don’t do birth photography but can recommend some wonderful birth photographers!) There are moments I do NOT remember because the day was a blur of blood, sweat and tears (so many tears!) **I treasure the photos I have of the moments when my daughter joined the family she was meant to join all along. It literally makes me melt and weep and get all mushy when i look through these photos. THEN hire a photographer for the first few days home, and before all that, I can’t recommend a destination wedding enough. As long as you take me with you. 😉 Oh, and maternity photos! Ha, you get my point.

They’re also all awesome photographers who I am SO SO HAPPY to have captured the most intimate moments of my life! (ps: I get I’m supposed to be marketing to get new clients and all if I’m not your cup of tea, maybe they’re your cup of tea? Is this where I say #communityovercompetition? Because I’ve truly found a community in this crazy photographer world.)
I think my point is: find a photographer whom you adore, let them capture these moments and then put that shit up all over your house. Maybe one day, your grandkids will pick up those tangible memories and will be inspired to pick up a camera...#justsaying .

  • Part of my goal for 2018 was for you to get to know me better, and it dawned on me that DUH, I need to hop out front of the camera little bit more! 
So...
hiiiiiiiiiii!
I’m Erin! I’m awkward and nerdy and a self proclaimed outgoing introvert (its a real thing!) I’m totally OK with all of those things. Most of the time. 😛 
I’m passionate about photography to the point where it’s spilled its way into every part of my life. I get that it’s awkward to be in front of the camera, and I believe that getting to know each other helps us both through that, so it’s important to me that we get to know each other! 
So, I’ll start doing that a little more around here! 
3 super random facts about me:
1. I believe Kraft Mac n Cheese Spirals to be a superior form of Mac n Cheese. It’s comfort food to me.
2. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed my college diploma. 
3. I hate avocados, in any form. I realize this alone may cause me to lose followers, but I just need to put that out there. .

  • this is going to sound so cheesy, but when I look at this photo, I can’t help but think of the little wonder that is waiting to meet the world and the special bond he shares with his momma. This is why I can’t get enough maternity. I get all giddy about those baby bumps, ready to make their debut. .
