Hi, I’m Erin!

The photo above shows me with my husband, our two boys, and our two labradoodles (also boys!).  I love my family, and it’s rare to have a photo with all of us in it!

I’m a baby and family photographer in Nottingham, Maryland. You might also call me a storyteller. I love to capture beautiful photos that tell a story of childhood, whether that be comparing a newborn photo to a first birthday photo or taking a series of lifestyle photos in your home that describe a specific moment in time.

I help parents who think their kids are growing up too fast and who want to document special or even ordinary moments to look back on for years to come.  I serve those who want more than just smartphone photos and who want beautiful albums or wall art of their children to enjoy and look back on throughout their lifetime. I take time to learn about the photo goals of my clients and create a custom photo session based on their desires, so they can get the exact experience and professional photo products they envision.  I am a planner, and I begin with the end in mind to make sure my clients are happy with the results!

I know from my experience as a mother that we parents are busy!  Our time is filled with taking care of our children, meal planning, the endless cleaning, laundry, exercise…and the list goes on.  Before you know it, your child is another year older.  Don’t let the busyness of life stop you from documenting these precious years as they go by! I believe the investment in preserving these special moments will bring you joy for years to come.

What will you get from me?

Creativity – My clients enjoy when we brainstorm ideas and then see those ideas become reality.

Efficiency – We are all busy, so staying organized and maintaining good communication are important to keep things moving along.

Joy – My goal is for you to experience the feeling of joy every time you see your photos!

Your children won’t be this age forever, but you can remember this time forever through beautiful photo albums and stunning photo wall art throughout your home. That’s why I hope you inquire about scheduling a maternity session, newborn session, older baby session, or in-home lifestyle session today!

CONTACT ME to learn more about your photo session options!  I would love to hear about your family and what you are looking to document during this phase of your life. I look forward to hearing from you!
