Meet Erica

Hey there!

I am so glad you found me!  There are many things that go into your search for the perfect photographer for you and I am here to alleviate any stress or concerns and help YOU!  A bit about me as we get started on our journey together. I am a local to the Channahon/Minooka area and established my Photography Business here in 2011.  I specialize in Family & Children Portraiture but I also shoot high school seniors, engagement and small weddings.

It is really important to me that I provide my clients with classic images, filled with emotion and truth that will transcend time.  Images that they will be able look back on generations from now and will also feel grateful that they have them. I love being a part of that for you and your family!

My style of photography comes from

what I love

and what I’d want to see on my own walls at home

My Story

I live with my husband and our rescue dog (a foster fail) Maddie who is the sweetest and cutest dog you could ever meet.  I have an adorable nephew that I photograph any chance I have. I have always loved photography, ever since I was in elementary school I have been taking photos.  I first learned photography on a film camera and developed in a dark room in high school and college, boy have things changed!  My Dad documented so much of our childhood, so perhaps I got the desire to capture from him.   I have so many photos (and even videos) from growing up and I love that.  Photos give us the ability to bring us back to that time in our life when it was captured…

And for that I am forever grateful.

“In taking a photograph we stop the flow of time to create a record of time”

My wedding day was one of the best days of my life and my most cherished photos that I have so I wanted to share some with you.

some more to get to know me…

I am a Scorpio

I love the people in my life fiercely

I prefer quiet simplicity

My soul feels best at the beach

My guilty pleasure is reality t.v.

I could eat ice cream every single day

I would adopt every dog that needs a home if I could


I can’t wait to meet you!
