MEET ERIN

Hi friends! I am so glad that you found your way here, to my little corner of the internet! I am an all-inclusive, documentary style photographer based in south-central Pennsylvania. 

Becoming a mother to my four amazing children opened my eyes to an entirely new world of wonder, beauty and love. Those are the things + the moments that I strive to capture for the families that I serve. My passion is capturing real moments, laughter + love through storytelling style sessions using prompts rather than poses. ('Stand here, say cheese!' doesn't ever really show any amount of a genuine smile or personality, now does it?) My biggest compliment received is always, 'that was actually a lot of FUN!' - especially when such words come from significant others who were hesitant at first to take part in what they expected to be a session of forced smiles and miserable posing!

That handsome guy in the photo with me is Adam, my husband and full-time tech guru / video producer here at EFP! He handles all things IT and edits + produces all of our film pieces after I shoot the RAW clips for him. We love the flexibility that our little business has brought to our lives and genuinely love working alongside each other day in + day out with our littles by our side.

I currently offer many storytelling photo and video sessions and specialize in birth stories that give parents an opportunity to capture one of the most magical experiences of their lives. I also offer my popular fresh 48 sessions, for those who wish to document their new babe's first moments + fleeting, tiny features without having their entire labor and delivery photographed.

 

I am proud to have an incredible working relationship with many local hospitals and medical professionals who are very familiar with me personally as well as my work. My work has been featured by local hospitals in their ad campaigns and I have even photographed many of the local staff's own births, babies + family milestones. I am blessed to have formed so many lasting relationships with these incredible providers and am truly grateful for being welcomed to work alongside them so often.
