that time, in holland.

traveling with kids is no joke.  so much goes into planning and anticipating so that the kids will “be ok” and that we will have “everything they need”.  then it’s all thrown out the window, and whatever will be, will be. that’s what i’ve learned.  just to let go and let life happen.  relinquishing some […]

resurfacing, august 2018

hello beautiful online world. it’s been a while.  a long long while. over the past few years i’ve been navigating through a blissful storm of defiance, boundaries, parenting and redefinition.  i’ve been learning from little people and big people alike.  i’ve been taught by colleagues, mentors, friends, babies, children and parents.  i’ve been encouraged to let go, relinquish […]

Mother’s love, Father’s love

Mother's love, Father's love

The tenderness of a newborn brings out the softest most beautiful sides in us.  We nuzzle with the tips of our noses and cuddle with the utmost tenderness.  It’s beautiful watching mothers and fathers love their new little beings.

Family!

Family!

Finally put a family portrait gallery back up on my site.  When I took it off my website two years ago, I had people asking me to put it back up, or questioning why I took it out.  Having a family of my own, now, I understand first hand the importance and joy the images bring – capturing […]

site updated for 2015!

It’s been a while since I’ve updated my site – kind of a daunting task with the plethora of beautiful wedding images that stacked up for me to cull through.  Picking a few images from a few weddings – a tough job, indeed.  But I finally got around to it while the baby slept the […]

little people - sessions by erica & jana

it appears the world is experiencing a bit of a little people boom.  everywhere i turn there are the cutest little versions of people i know (or don’t know) stomping their little mini feet on the pavement or being carried in their rolling thrones like kings and sultans.  their little eyes bright up the world […]
