Mother's Day Mini Sessions

Since Moms aren't in front of the camera, with their little munchkins, near as often as they should be, I've decided to run Mother's Day Minis on May 11th. However, this is open to all women who want to celebrate their motherhood. We are all Mothers, one way or another, and this would be a great Mother's Day present for any woman! (Hint, hint, husbands!)

Since I will be up at the Thomas E. Ricks Gardens from 3:00pm to 6:00pm, there are 6 available spots to choose from. After booking a time, I will be available for a phone consultation. The price is $40 and includes: 30 minute session; 8 high resolution images on disc, with print release; and style consultation via phone before session date. I will have the location all ready for you, so all you will have to do is show up. There will be a $10 non-refundable deposit to secure your spot (which is counted towards the $40, so at the time of the session, you will only have to pay $30). To book your time or if you have any questions, please email your request to

The available session times are listed below: (when a line appears, time has already been booked)


To celebrate me reaching 100 fans, I will be giving away one of the 30 minute sessions. You will have two weeks to enter the GIVEAWAY. The winner will be drawn on April 30th. If you already have a session time booked, and you win, you will get your session for free! Also, if you have a time already reserved for you and your little ones, you will receive 5 extra entries in the giveaway drawing. If the winner doesn't already have a time reserved, then a special time slot will be created from 6:00-6:30.

Here's how to enter for the free 30 minute mini session:

Baby - Maksim

I can't even begin to describe how amazing this experience was for me. Baby Maksim was born at 26 weeks gestation. He is a living miracle. Eighty six days after he was born, little Miracle Maks was able to go home! This was an exciting time for everyone, especially his two-year old big Sister, who had not yet seen him. Logan and Shalee, I truly feel blessed that I had the privilege of capturing these special moments between you and your children. You are amazing parents and a beautiful couple! I am so grateful that our paths crossed, once again. Love Always, Erin.

Baby - Jaylie Rose

There is no doubt here, who this little muffin belongs to! She is absolutely gorgeous, just like her Mommy. Just look at that face! It was beyond adorable to see how much this baby girl loves her Mom already. The bond between a Mother and daughter is so special. Judd and Sarah, thank you for letting  me play dress up with your sweet, new baby girl! I just love her (especially that little button nose)!!!

The Scholes Family

 I can't even begin to explain how much fun I had with the Scholes! This wonderful family is the real deal. They are beautiful. It was obvious from the moment I stepped into their home that it's filled with love for one another. I'm thrilled that they decided to have a lifestyle session. Since becoming a mother, I have created a special place in my heart for lifestyle photography.  I understand how important it is to remember every little detail, right down to those adorable chubby fingers. And let me tell you, these two kids are the definition of ADORABLE! Kaleb and Brittaney, thank you for inviting me into your home and allowing me to capture those special moments between you and your children!
