Meet Erica

 

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by this little space of mine. I'm Erica--  31, wife to my best bud, mama to 3 kiddos and dog mom to Fen. I am based out of central Indiana but travel often to southern Indiana and other surrounding areas. I specialize in family photography but love shooting the occasional engagement or wedding. When I'm not shooting or editing, you can find me doing the mom thing, spending quality time with my family, binge watching some Netflix with my husband and occasionally (probably more than i'd like to admit) wandering around Target buying all the things. Home decor is my jam. Sometimes I think it’d be cool to be an interior decorator, but the only practice I’ve had is on my own home so I think I’ll just stick to that. But really, give me all the boho vibes. I have a HUGE weakness for chips and salsa and cheese dip. I could probably eat it every single day. I am also always cold. My husband thinks I’m nuts but you’ll find me sleeping in a sweatshirt in July.

My shooting style is not your typical 'posed smiling at the camera,' but more of an intimate lifestyle/documentary approach. I love catching the moody candid, genuine interactions, all of the raw and the real. My hope is to create timeless images that you will look at years down the road and be filled with all of the emotions that you felt in that moment. A field with a good sunset view is my happy place but I also am a firm believer that a moody overcast sky is just as amazing if not better. I am so so grateful and humbled that my passion for photography is my "job."
