What I do
I photograph every person in the same way I would want to be photographed with the ones that I love.
I treat you the way I would want to be treated - it’s that simple. I truly care about the people whose stories I am telling.
It is because of this that I am able to dive deeper and connect to you.
I’m drawn to the emotive ways that we, as humans, connect to each other.
I want to show you what you look like in love.
Sessions with me are play based and emotion driven. No stiff poses or smiling at the camera because you are so much more than a pose that works for everyone. I want to give you so much more than that. My main goal in my work is to capture real moments in life and to translate them into art.
I’m Erin, your next photographer
Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I’m a New Lenox photographer with a love for emotive family photography and unposed newborn sessions.
I’m also a mom, wife, tea-addicted, fast-talking, middle child with roots freely grown in the midwest and wings that keep me dreaming.
I adore warm natural light, organic textures, and real moments. I pride myself in anticipating the moments and capturing those in between embraces that mean the most.
I am a huge people person and love getting to know you so we can customize your session to feel like you.
My style is a blend of emotive and lifestyle with the use of natural light and beautiful textures.
Whether we are in your home or out in nature, I try to facilitate authentic interaction: then capture the real moments that follow.
I give as much or as little direction as you need, and make it truly feel like we are just hanging out and I just happen to have my camera along for the ride.
You bring what makes you “you”— and all the fun and crazy that is your life. I’ll bring what makes me “me”.
And together we will create something that represents you, and your love for your family.
It's the only thing that matters. This is why you are here. This is why I am here.
“Don’t shoot what it looks like.
Shoot what it feels like.”
