Hello! I’m Erica!

I am a military spouse, a mother of three, artist, tea drinker, animal lover, wannabe foodie, bookworm, and world traveler.

As a small child, I was fascinated with my father’s analog Minolta. On occasion, he would let me wind the film, or push the shutter release. When I was ten, I participated in a photography project in 4-H. This was my initial introduction to photography using a 110 point and shoot film camera. Decades later, my love affair with photography continues, but now I shoot with a DSLR and capture more than just kittens and smiling friends.

Although my photographic explorations span several genres, as an artist/image maker, I get the most satisfaction from photographing people. I don’t set out to make images of smiling faces. I try to capture emotions and unique pictures of people from my own perspective.

I have a bachelor’s of visual art from University of North Carolina’s Fayetteville State University with a concentration in digital art – specifically photography.  I try to bring those artistic sensibilities to everything I shoot.
