Hey there, I’m Erin! Thanks so much for visiting my site!
I am a natural light photographer who loves to capture special memories for my clients. I love taking photos of families, children, engagement, and high school seniors. However, my favorite subjects to shoot are families. Taking pictures of children always puts a smile on my face. My goal is to make your sessions as relaxing and fun as possible. I love finding new locations around the Cleveland and Chattanooga area for any kind of session.
I found my passion for photography when I took a photo class in college. My first camera was my grandfather’s Nikon SLR camera that he bought from Hong Kong in the 1960’s. I spent countless hours in the darkroom on my weekends developing film that I had taken during my free time. I eventually upgraded to my first digital SLR camera and started taking pictures of friends and family. People noticed my photography and asked me to start taking pictures of them. Thus a business was born!
I received my B.F.A. from Brenau University in May 2005 and my masters in education in December 2013 from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
When I am not photographing families and editing photos, I love spending time with my husband and family. We have two small children, Adam and Lauren, and we enjoy relaxing on the back deck at our house in the country. I am originally from Chattanooga and I absolutely love living in the South! I love having a cup of coffee, or two, in the morning. Reading mystery and non-fiction is a constant hobby of mine. Watching old movies is one of my favorite past times and I love hiking the local trails. Over ten members of my family have graduated from the University of Tennessee, I have traveled to Europe, and my favorite color is mint green.
