About Erica J Mitchell’s Natural Light Photography Style

Erica photographs in a natural light studio* or on location using natural light to create a soft environmental look for each of her clients. Classic photographic techniques that utilize the sun are used onsite to enhance the light quality.

Erica can achieve this style of headshot photography indoors as well, if large window light is available.

*Studio session fee applies.


For outdoor session the best time to photograph is in the late afternoon when the sun is low in the sky, early mornings are an option also. With the time of year in mind, the best shooting time is 1-2 hours before sunset, depending on the length of your session.

For natural light studio sessions midday to an hour before sunset work best. Morning and early afternoon times can work well also.

All session times are booked Monday – Friday only. Some exceptions apply.
