Stop dreading family photos

Kids will be kids. I get it and you don’t have to apologize. I’ll take my time getting to know you and them so I can get photos that crystalize this moment in time! Frame this not as a chore but as an adventure with your new friend Erika!

I’ll also be here to help you through the process of preparing outfits, locations and activities and coach you to look and feel your absolute best.

If you are open to this being fun and we plan our session well, we will have fun together during this process!

Erika is very kind and creative. I have had the pleasure of working with her a few times. She has made my ideas come to life in her amazing photos, without judgment when my ideas may be a little off the wall. Communication has been amazing everytime. Would recommend anyday/everyday. So grateful to have found her, her patience level with my 5 wild children is beyond amazing!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ll work together to find the perfect location for your unique needs. 
I’ve been a Lynchburg photographer for almost 8 years so I know all the best spots!

For some families this might be their own backyard, for others a studio, and for others a park or field! You’re welcome to come to me with a location in mind, but I’ll also help you if you have no location ideas!

While there isn’t a cap or maximum, the average session receives 50-70 photos. If you have very expressive (or very many) kids, you’ll receive more photos as I love the silly and candid moments!

Yes! I offer maternity photos for Lynchburg, Charlottesville and Roanoke clients! (And for couples/families I’ve worked with before!) If you plan on doing a grow with me package once your baby arrives, I recommend starting with a maternity session to get to know each other!

The Grow With Me package is designed to make sure you don’t miss a moment of your little one’s growth. 

It starts with your maternity and newborn session where we get to know each other and talk more about what this package looks like for your family as it’s different for every family. 

You can choose to do grow with me sessions quarterly, monthly or anything in between. And if you start out monthly and need to skip a month or switch to quarterly, there is plenty of flexibility to do just that! 

You’ll schedule each session about a month in advance and we’ll talk about ways to make each one unique by doing activities, outings, or just capturing a slice of life. 

The grow with me package is only available for customers within a 30 minute radius of Lynchburg at this time. 

I offer shorter sessions (20-30 minutes) that I call mini sessions but I rarely offer the short mini sessions with a backdrop/setup that you may think of when you hear mini session. 

Shorter sessions are only available within an hour from Lynchburg, but for longer sessions and larger groups I travel throughout Virginia!
