Erin takes a relaxed and intuitive approach to portraiture and focuses on capturing the quiet pensive moments, the exuberance and subtle interactions she observes and turns them into crisp, natural images that become family keepsakes.
An EW family photo session captures the members of your family in both natural stances and at unplanned moments, in a variety of groupings (couples, mother and daughter, father and son, just kids, the entire family) and usually takes place outdoors in natural light – at the beach, in a park or garden. Erin's guidance, skill and easy-going presence help put everyone at ease so your personalities and relationships show through.
Before the shoot, you can expect guidance for what to wear and how to prepare so that your family's style and uniqueness are reflected. Many clients choose to shoot family portraits to document pivotal events and celebrations such as holidays, anniversaries, birthdays, graduations and vacations.
Expand your family circle and document the strength and joy of multifamily and intergenerational ties. Erin will photograph individual groupings – the elders and youngsters, all the men or women, lifelong friends, cousins, each family and the whole gang – with a mix of posed and candid images. Years of experience shooting weddings explains the calm, easy way Erin manages large groups for a group photo shoot. You can trust that she'll get the pictures.
Think posterity! This is an opportunity to capture an era in your extended family's history. Clients often book these sessions during vacations and family reunions in the Wilmington area.
Erin's photojournalistic skills truly shine in a Documentary Session: a series of photos that tell a story of your family. She enters your world and documents active moments of joy and spontaneity: your child dressed in a favorite cape or gown, tiara or boots…digging in the garden, casting a magic spell, building a fort, baking a cake, or leading an imaginary expedition.
While everyone is relaxed and having fun, Erin will also capture a few casually-posed family pictures.
Documentary Sessions take place in your home or a location that is special to your family and last 1.5 - 2 hours. Before the shoot you have the opportunity to provide Erin with information about your family and your ideas and expectations.
You will have the record of a moment in time to keep forever, to look back on and remember who your child(ren) were on that day.
All three types of portrait services include the photography session, an online proofing gallery and options for prints, digital files, wall art, albums and books.
