Erica is an experienced professional photographer with 7 years experience in the Grand Rapids area. Focused mostly on family, children, maternity and newborn photography with some experience with seniors and weddings. Her main focus is to capture the genuine connection a family has through the lens.
I love capturing a family's authentic connection. Everyone has it, but doesn't always see it through photos. I have also loved getting to know clients over the years and seeing newborns grow into toddlers and then into the wonderful little humans they are today. The best compliment I can get is a return client that gives me the opportunity to photograph them over the years as their family grows.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many newborn and family shoots over the years. My main focus with little ones is to get a genuine smile or reaction out of them. Kids are the best with authenticity and I love letting them play and be themselves during the shoot. Sometimes parents are worried the kids won't cooperate, but I always find a way to make them feel comfortable and connect with them. For newborn shoots, I go to clients homes and bring all of the props that we'll need. I love making new parents feel comfortable during this process as I know it can be an extremely tiring time in a new parents life.
