I was on a social media hunt for the right photographer for our business. We needed headshots, but I wanted someone that we could easily work with while I was out of the office. Erica did such an amazing job! She was quick to respond, her communication skills are great, and she took the time to make sure my company headshots were taken in a decent location. My employees were extremely happy with the results, and I’d use her again in a heartbeat!

Erica is an incredible photographer! I recently booked her for headshots needed for my career. I have never been a fan of having my picture taken, it has always felt uncomfortable and awkward. However, Erica was a wonderful coach, her energy made the entire process so easy and actually enjoyable. Not only do I love my final photos, but I have already received many compliments on them. You won’t regret booking with Erica.

Erica has done the last two rounds of staff head shots for the nonprofit where I work. She is wonderful! Super responsive, communicative, and flexible, and makes the process easy, casual, and fun. Quality of the photos is top-notch and pricing very reasonable. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

“Hands down, Erica is one of the best professional photographers I’ve ever worked with in my career. In January 2020 I did a photo shoot with her, and she was friendly, engaging, and she made me feel comfortable from start to finish. Her professionalism is impeccable, and people often remark on the quality of those photos (you can see one of them above in this profile picture), even over a year and a half later. She truly captured who I am in those photos, and I look forward to working with her for my next project!”

Guy B.

Erica was professional, knowledgeable, warm and personable. It was clear she’s had a lot of experience with lighting, backgrounds, and helping me poses while also including my own ideas. She was timely in getting back to me the proofs and included her own suggestions of which her shots were her own favorite. I was very satisfied.

“Erica did headshots for me after I was laid off, so I could have a professional photo to freshen up my LinkedIn profile. I now have a job and I get compliments on my headshot almost daily. I’m using my headshot for just about everything now! She did a good job of capturing my genuine smile. I appreciate how detail-oriented she is, and how great she is at communicating. I’ll be reaching out to her when I need updated headshots. Thanks Erica!”
