I started getting into the art of photography at a very early age. My dad started out working as a darkroom technician and soon landed a job at a marketing and advertising firm.  It was his hobby to take beautiful candid photos of us, almost never posed, because the candid photos capture real life. I lost my dad recently, but I know he would be incredibly proud of the life I have created.

I'm Erin - photographer, dog mom to Anna, seeker of adventure.

Welcome Friend!

Anna (pronounced Ah-nah) is not just a dog.  She’s some kind of super-intelligent spirit animal who was sent here to save me. Sure, everyone has heard the adorable saying, “who rescued who?” right? Well, it’s not just a saying to me. She healed me. She gave me confidence, strength, resilience. She is an exceptional being and I’m incredibly lucky to call myself her person.

In case you haven't noticed.. My dog is my world

I believe you can tell a lot about a person by what their favorite ice cream is... It's why its a mandatory question on my contact forms! I'm also a huge foodie, so everyone close to me knows food is the true way to my heart.

I love ice cream

I have been playing World of Warcraft for many years, developing strong friendships with people I would never have thought possible. I'm also a member of several Dungeons and Dragons campaigns, love fantasy board games like Munchkin, and fighting zombies in 7 Days to Die!

I love gaming

My life can certainly get crazy. The one thing that will always be my saving grace, is the recharge I get from being away in nature. I need the quiet, the smell of the trees and the feel of running water. If there is a creek, lake or river, I'm jumping in, and Anna will be right there with me.

I love camping

Okay, reading may be more of an obsession... It's a way for me to unwind and focus my mind away from screens and technology. I find myself going through books practically every week, and I never get tired of walking into bookstores to pick out my next one. I'm old fashioned and love the feel and the smell of real live books! 

I love to read
