for East Tennessee + North Georgia
You will forget about the spilled Cheerios in your car.
Come, hang out and be you! I’ll help you prep for your session, figure out what to wear, and find the perfect location. You just need to show up and be who you are for me to capture authentic connections! Let’s walk, play, run, swing, tickle each other – whatever you do, be you!
I like to capture some posed images of everyone, but I take a lifestyle and documentary approach to my photography. I will show how you interact with each other as a family, so I will be capturing those genuine moments without you realizing it.
I’ve been photographing families for more than 7 years, so I come prepared with fruit snacks ready to go and the latest episode of Bluey – if that’s what it takes to get your child to smile!
Children grow up so fast that before you know it, they’re out the door after college graduation. I don’t want you to miss it, mama!
When you glance at the picture frames in your house, will you yearn for the time when your infant daughter smiled up at you or your young son gave you the biggest hug?
Will you be taken right back to this moment, right now, or will you be the busy mom who missed the chance to stop time?
I don’t want you to regret not scheduling those photos of your family and documenting each stage of your child’s life.
“We’ve been using Erin Bancroft Photography for several years and she’s never disappointed us! She is always punctual, does a fantastic job, and we highly recommend her for any photography need!”
“Erin did a wonderful job of making my family feel at ease during our photo shoot. She was set up and ready to go upon our arrival. We opted for the fall mini shoot. I was a bit concerned when I scheduled our slot that we may feel rushed due to the time constraint but, it was the opposite! She was patient, focused, & made us all feel relaxed. We had plenty of photos to choose from and I look forward to working with her again in the future!”
“We booked Erin for a session Fall 2019 and couldn’t have been more impressed. Her business is very well organized and she communicates very well before the session. During the session, she was calm and collected and our children’s fussing didn’t phase her! And then came the pictures… oh my was I surprised at the wonderful shots she got especially out of the baby who I didn’t think cracked a smile, but somehow Erin captured it! I’ve already booked her for another session and plan to use her services many times in the future!”

I include a family style guide for each session in your client portal. This will help you know how to prep, what to bring, and what to wear for your session. The guide will give you examples of coordinating colors and outfits and will show you what will look best for your photos.
I have never photographed a session where kids cry the entire time I’m shooting. However, every effort will be given to get your kids to smile! My shooting style is more lifestyle and documentary, so I make sure to grab photos of your kids interacting naturally with you as a family. I have my phone ready to play Baby Shark, and I bring snacks or other fun items for the kids with the parent’s permission.
No worries!! I know mother nature can be unpredictable, so I schedule a rain date just in case, that is agreeable between both of us.
You are always welcome to hire me for a longer time period! For a two hour session, it would be $550. You would receive 15 more images and 2-3 outfit changes. We can also shoot at more than 1 location if desired.
I have several places that I recommend for family sessions, but let me know if you have a favorite location that is special to you! I always love finding new places in the local area. However, if there is a spot you love and it requires a permit fee, it is the responsibility of the client.
I deliver engagement galleries in two weeks time! But don’t be surprised if you get them even quicker!
When you access your online gallery, you have the option to purchase extra digital images as well as prints and products.
Yes, I do! I offer fall mini sessions which are usually around the end of September or the beginning of October. I will be offering Christmas mini sessions again as well and those are scheduled around the beginning of November. These spots go quick, so I recommend signing up for my email list or joining my VIP Facebook group so you are one of the first to know when my dates open up!
