Hello, I'm Erin! Thank you so much for stopping by. I am located in Wilson, NC however I travel & photograph all surrounding areas. I began this business in 2008 part time and went full time in 2013.  I am first and foremost a wife, mama, and Christian. My family is everything to me and I am privileged to be able to "work from home" while raising our children. We have two adorable and sweet boys - 4 & 5 year old. My husband {my love} and I have been married almost 12 years.

As a child, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would answer "photographer".  It all began at the early age of 5; my parents bought me a purple, Vivitar "Brites" 35 mm camera for Christmas. It was my Father's idea to give this gift and he has taught the very most about photography. From the moment I had that first roll of film developed, I had no doubt that photography was my true passion. I wake up most days in complete shock that I am actually living out my dream!
I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of capturing the perfect moment!  My objective is to create a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. I photograph all types of sessions from newborn, family, high school seniors, engagement, bridal, weddings and so on. I have experience photographing both natural light and indoor portraits. I aim to provide those moments of pure joy, which a photo can so easily deliver.

I believe that my talent is God given and I am thankful for the ability to share His love and His beauty through my lens.
