Gone Fishing Mini Sessions

As you know, I am a girl mom.  I have 2 beautiful little girls and so girly ideas just come easier to me.  So this year I wanted to make an effort to have some more unisex themed mini sessions. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do and then one of my photographer friends was selling this adorable boat and I KNEW I had to have it!

These mini sessions are only available 3 days (July 14, 22 and 30) and so spots are LIMITED!  Sessions will take place at North Park in Brunswick.

The packages are the similar to my unicorn minis with 2 choices: 15 minutes, 3 digital images for $50 or  20 minutes, 7 digital images for $75.  Both packages come with a print release and online gallery.

Use the contact us page or e-mail me at to book your session today!

Our New Look

I have been thinking a lot about who I am and how this business represents me and my passion and I wanted a logo that encompassed that! So in March I started the process with Wild Hyacinth Design Studio and I couldn’t be happier with how things have turned out!

The first thing I had to do was create a pinterest board and come up with my ideas to send to her.  I wanted something simple, yet whimsical.  I mainly photograph babies, children and families and I love to do the cute set ups that kids have fun with (like the tea party minis from last year).  Lauren from WHDS took all of my ideas and incorporated my family in the design too.

I really had no clue what I wanted but knew all of the elements I wanted and WHDS put them all together beautifully.  First are the colors.  If you read my about me section, you will know I am also a science teacher.  I have always loved astronomy and the colors you see in pictures of far away galaxies.  I love bright colors to begin with and so I wanted my logo to be bright teal, electric purple and pink.  I also LOVE watercolor flowers and these remind me of my wedding.  Finally, the things that are most important to me, my girls.  Mikaela (my oldest) has always been called, by myself and everyone else, my princess.  SO the crown represents her.  Kaedence (my youngest) was very hard to conceive, it took us nearly a year of trying, and so I think of her as my unicorn baby because she is one of a kind and magical.  So the unicorn horn represents her.  Without further ado here is the new logo and the new watermark I will be using!


I hope you love these as much as I do!  If you are in the market for a logo for your small business I HIGHLY suggest Lauren with Wild Hyacinth designs.  You can find her on Etsy at or on Facebook at

In honor of my new look the website got a little makeover (I hope you like this too!) and we will also be having a special to celebrate!  All sessions will be 20% off but must be paid for and used by the end of 2017!  See the specials tab for more details!

Christmas Mini Sessions

It’s that time of year again!!!  CHRISTMAS MINI SESSIONS!!  Fall is my favorite season but Christmas is my favorite holiday!  I love everything about the holiday and I love the traditions that come with it.  This year I will be doing mini sessions for 3 dates over 2 weekends.  I am so excited for these sessions because it is the first time I will be using my new garage studio!  Due to baby #2 coming, I was kicked out of my spare room (which was PERFECT for sessions).  BUT it means that I have more space for set ups and a space for parents to sit during their child’s session.

Below is a graphic containing the details of my special.  Sessions are 20 minutes long and include 10 digital images, a print release, and an online gallery for $75.  There is a limit of 3 children per session due to time limit constraints.  If you need a session for a larger group please contact me for pricing at


As always I will have 2 set ups for you to choose from.  You may choose to use only one or both during your session.  I haven’t gotten all of my props yet but the themes will match the backgrounds pictured below:

  1. Wood and Gold with some dark red sprinkled in
  2. Blue and Silver

I will also be running a couple specials on prints for the months of November and December. ALL prints and packages will be 15% off and there are 2 specially designed packages specifically for the holiday season.



Family Mini Sessions

2016 Summer Family Mini Sessions | Brunswick Ohio Photographer | Family Photography

My husband and I have an understanding about family photos, we do them once a year.  He lets me take as many photos of my daughter as I want, but he will only do family photos once a year.  This is because he knows me so well and knows otherwise we would be having photos done 2-3 times a year, and that’s a LOT of family photos!  My absolute favorite time for photos is in the fall, and we do our photos during this time almost every year.  So this year I decided to go with summer photos to change things up a bit.  That got me to thinking, that maybe other families have had their photos done a lot in the fall and want a change for this year as well.  And thus my family mini sessions were born!

I wanted to keep them at a low price point, so that they would be affordable to all families looking to update their family photos.  I also know not every weekend will work for everyone, so I have two different weekend dates available.  I’m thinking this will be a yearly tradition if things go well!  There are also 2 locations for the mini sessions.  Brunswick Lake Park on July 16 and Bonnie Park (in Strongsville) on July 30.  Sessions are 10 minutes long  and include 3-5 digital images in an online gallery, all for $65.

These sessions will only be offered during a 2 hour time slot and spots are limited.  I will open more slots if the need arises.  To book your 2016 family mini session e-mail me today at  I look forward to capturing beautiful photos of your family 🙂


OH! and also I will be having a special; through THIS WEEKEND ONLY.  For every family who books a mini session you will receive a FREE 8×10 photo from your session (a $10 value)!  Only valid on sessions booked through fathers day-June 19, 2016; you must contact me before 11:59 pm on June 19.

Tea Party Mini Sessions!

Tea Party Mini Sessions | Brunswick Photographer | Toddler Photography 

April 20, 2016 

So I have the cutest daughter in the world.  She is a little over 2 years old and she is full of personality. She is the reason why I became a photographer in the first place and I have more pictures of her than I can count.  Because of this I am always coming up with adorable ways to take her picture.  When I was planning her second birthday party in January, my sister had this wonderful idea to have a tea party theme.  And what is a tea party theme without a custom tea party invitation (with pictures taken by mommy)?  Thus the idea was born!  I scoured craigslist to find the perfect table to match her ceramic tea set that my aunt had gotten her for her first birthday.

We took some amazing photos of her this past fall and again last weekend (see the pictures below) and I just KNEW that other moms would want to do a session like this for their little girls (or boys!).  These special Tea Party Mini Sessions will take place on May 21 at Brunswick Lake Park.  Sessions will be 20 minutes, include 7 digital images in an online gallery with a print release.  I will also provide hats and an array of pretty dresses for your princess, sized from 12 months to 4t.  Please feel free to provide your own dress as well (I got the coral floral one my daughter is wearing in some of the photos at Costco for under $20!) Little boys are also welcome at these sessions!  I have an array of bow ties and regular ties for little gentlemen.  Sessions are ideal for 1 or 2 young children.

Spots are limited so don’t wait to reserve your spot today!  To book your session go to

Here are a few of my favorites from the first set of photos I did with my daughter in the fall!  I love how the leaves are covering the ground!

Here are some of my favorites from the session I just did with my daughter.  Hopefully in May we will have more foliage for our sessions!

I look forward to taking photos of your adorable kiddos soon!

2016 Referral and Loyalty Program

2016 is all about revamping my business!  And if it wasn’t for YOU, my crazy,awesome, amazing clients then I wouldn’t have a business at all!  These programs are my way of saying THANK YOU for being you!  I have 2 programs I will be rolling out this year…. a referral program and a loyalty program.

First lets talk about the referral program!  I enjoy giving you beautiful images to display in your home.  One of the greatest compliments you can give a photographer is to refer them to someone!  It shows them that you really value their work and their style. To me it means a lot!  This is my way to say “Thank You”  for giving me your support!  For EVERY client you refer to me who books* a mini session you will receive $5 off of your next session or print order.  If your referral books* a full session you will receive $10 off of your next session or print order.  Rewards CAN be accumulated (think FREE sessions for you!) but must be used in 2016.

Now on to the loyalty program.  For every 5 full price sessions booked with Photographs By Erin you will get a FREE MINI SESSION!  What better way to give back to my clients than to give them a free session!  Sessions that count toward your free mini session is anything from a mini-session on up, but they have to be full price sessions.

I am in the process of making both referral and loyalty cards to hand out with every session!  Thank you for helping my business grow!

*your referral must book and pay for the session before referral credit is given
