Hey there. I'm Erica.  I was born and raised in Florida but now live with my husband and kiddos in Iwakuni. My address may be in Japan, but I will always be a Florida Gator.

Photography found its way into my life through the people around me who encouraged my love for creativity. As a high school student, I had an incredible opportunity to explore the world of photography through classes at Ringling School of Art and Design, and it was there, in the darkroom, that I began to understand the beauty in an art that is capable of being simultaneously simple and complex. 

While I may not have an actual darkroom of my own, I can't complain about the convenience modern digital photography affords. I love shooting portraits. My style tends toward cleaner, classic images, both in how they're composed and edited. My favorite photos are always those that I take between poses - the sweet, candid interactions; the full-body newborn stretches and yawns - that become beautiful, organic art. It's important to me to create natural and timeless photos for my clients. My goal every session is to keep things relaxed and fun and to produce images that are both meaningful and unique.
