Hello There

Mother of one, coffee lover, and of course the photographer behind Erika Michelle Photography. I take pride in being trained for newborn safety and I am also a student nurse - I will always do photography, but I really want to help people as well - specifically children! 

Located in Ottawa (close to Hunt Club and Uplands)  I have a large commercial studio setup and also do on site photography (outdoor photography providing the weather is cooperative)

I take pride in making my newborn photography, maternity photography, family photography and cake smash photography attainable for ALL budgets. Please contact me if you have something in mind that I don't currently have posted in my packages. 

I specialize in newborns, cake smashes, mini sessions, milestone images, maternity, and family. I would love to create beautiful artwork for your home.


I have always loved photography, but after having a son I realized how important and precious those moments are. Children are only young for so long, and I strive to capture those moments so you can look back and remember them just the way they were!


I photograph all subjects but my favourite is photographing children and families. It only takes that one shot that you may not have even noticed with your own eye to make a special moment and memory that will last a lifetime.


I prefer candid shots... I want everyone to remember things just the way they were. Memories do fade, but photographs last forever.


They preserve those special moments that we may forget as time goes by. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy providing these memories. Feel free to have a look around and book at your leisure!

We have a fully stocked commercial studio- no need to bring anything except your regular baby stuff. Our props are specifically made for babies- the size is correct to highlight their little cuteness! We cannot wait to capture your memories!
