Hi! I’m Erika. I’m a Denver Area Documentary Photographer.
Motherhood has given me a passion for life and noticing all the tiny details.
What I didn’t realize until I picked up my first DSLR was how much I’d prefer the authentic, emotive moments over the posed portraits. The day to day action shots of my kids in their freedom to love and explore, without any of the pressure to perform.
I’ve always been an observer, a dreamer, and an artist, but photography didn’t become my primary focus until after I had kids. My three little crazies keep me inspired and on my toes. Like every family, not all our moments are happy. That’s why it’s so important to me to take the time to be present and make as many fun memories as possible before they’re all grown up. And document a little bit of everything.
These are pictures from our last family vacation. Vacation is when our life feels the most simple and free and I’m trying to bring more of that simplicity and joy into our day-to-day life.
I hope you find refreshment and validation, or even just comic relief in the authentic pieces of our life I share here.
