“Erica exceeded my expectations on every front! I loved her intentional and professional approach, her ability to make me feel completely safe and at ease, and the impeccable quality of craft and beauty in the photos themselves. Erica was patient, enthusiastic, and upbeat throughout our entire shoot, and her gentle coaching helped me come alive in front of the camera. Her turn-around was quick, and I was wowed by her attention to detail in the editing process. I’m so happy with my photos, and I will absolutely work with Erica again!”

My sister and I hired Erica to take our professional headshots. She made us feel very comfortable. Her studio space is very cool and she created a calm, fun experience for us (even though I was stressed out to get my photo taken)! Erica is incredibly detail oriented, and was tuned into the changing lighting conditions, constantly adjusting certain things to create the best light for the best shot. I’ve worked with a handful of photographers over the years and Erica is a true professional in her field! The quality of the finished photos are beautiful. I’m also really impressed with how her editing looks! I would work with Erica again in a heartbeat!

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 J. Mitchell has lent her sharp and skillful photography talent to our large-scale Photography Festival, Photolucida. She is a pleasure to work with and produces imagery that elevates the meaning of “event photography”! We are thankful to have found her – highly recommended!

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.

“I’m a hobbyist photographer who doesn’t like to be in front of a camera. Erica did a good job of making me comfortable with that. I appreciate how she works with natural light, which IMHO involves more art than photography with studio lighting. And the results were great!”

“Erica Mitchell is an incredible photographer with the ability to capture professional, real, and sophisticated images of her subjects. I have worked with her for nearly a decade to capture images for my business and brand. Her headshots are the best I’ve seen and really capture the essence of a person in their best possible light. She is an expert with natural light photography, which lends a real and relatable impression to her photos. She is a pro and really knows how to work with light. I come back to her again and again because her work and methods are of the highest quality.”

“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!”

Erica did some shots of our family with our foster dog, Padre. Padre had major anxiety issues from the shelter but Erica put him at ease and was able to capture his sometimes goofy personality perfectly with some beautiful shots out in a field (despite some strong sunshine). Everyone we show them to compliments them. Thanks to Erica we get a beautiful reminder of our time with him.

Erica was very personable and made me feel comfortable. She provided great direction through the photo shoot while still allowing my personality to come through. She was also prompt in her responses to my requests as well as delivering a quality product.

I worked with Erica to get some headshots as well as some branding shots. Erica is super fun to work with and puts you at ease right away… essential for caputuring a great picture. Not only is she very talented as a photographer, but on the business side her process is easy and streamlined. Highly recommend!

Wow, I got headshots with Erica and cannot recommend enough. She is an expert with lighting. In a short time she captured so many wonderful images I had a hard time choosing which to select. Very well done!

“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!”

As a subject, who ordinarily rejects all cameras, Erica’s assuring conversation eased me into an interaction of surprising self-discovery with the camera. She facilitates a simultaneous creative journey for both the photographer and the subject. In retrospect, the synergistic field she creates is what I believe makes her photography so fresh, so alive and tinged with a mystery that pulls you in and keeps you there looking. I found Erica to be an artist whose camera paints a portrait that captures a cohesive and compelling story about her subject.

Erica is also a seasoned business woman. Her professionalism earmarks not only her artistic product, but defines a deep care and respect for every detail of the client relationship before, during and after the shoot. As someone who hates to be photographed, I couldn’t have been more delighted with the product and the process.

“Erica J Mitchell is an amazing photographer! When she photographed our wedding, she made us comfortable in front of the camera- which is a very big deal since we were nervous! She had great ideas about poses and scenery. The finished photos were unbelievably good. We were so excited to see them. She has a great eye for color, composition, and for capturing spontaneous moments. She also made two videos for us- one of our ceremony and one that was a collection of footage from throughout the day. I was blown away with her creativity and skill! I can’t say enough good things about her as a photographer and as a person. She is a caring, thoughtful person who considers not just the imagery she is capturing, but the relationships and connections between the people in the photos. I wholeheartedly recommend Erica for any event that you want to capture!”
