Hi everyone! Wow! This is my first blog post EVER! I am so excited to share my website and my dream with you! I hope you will enjoy being a part of my journey as much as I enjoy sharing it with you!
Today I just want to do a little introduction post.
My name is Erika! (Obviously). I am a photographer who is specializing in newborn, maternity, family, children's and cake smash photographs. It is something I am extremely passionate about. After having a child myself, I have really come to realize the huge importance of documenting important memories that will change as children grow older. It is so amazing to have beautiful artwork to look back on and think "Wow! I forgot they used to make that face!" or even to just see what someone looked like at a specific point in time. People change so much in such a short time.
I use a Nikon D7000 and prefer to use natural light but I do have studio lights as well for shoots that will be taking place later on in the evening or too early in the morning (we live in Ottawa where in the winter it stays dark until later in the morning and gets dark very early in the afternoon!). I am hoping that my dreams will take me further and I can upgrade my gear but I also feel that a true photographer can capture crystal clear images with even the worst of gear. It's all about knowing how to USE your camera! Am I right guys?
I have a small studio space in my apartment which I use for newborns and in the winter I use it for all of my shoots! I can't wait to do some more cake smashes with custom colours. I really look forward to all of the customized shoots that show of YOUR kid's personality!
I like to do the posed newborn shoots but I also like lifestyle-type sessions. These are where I go to your home and just photograph you in your natural setting!
I am working on getting more outfits and especially maternity dresses, lots of wraps for newborn shoots, props, and all of that fun stuff! I can't wait to share them with you!
Is there anything you would like to see?
