Erica is a Lifestyle Family & Portrait Photographer in the Washington, DC area and beyond. She holds dearly the belief that each family should have their life documented in beautiful, honest way. Erica is inspired by families that value spending time together and how naturally beautiful love looks in a photograph. Erica has a soft spot for golden hour light, an irrational fear of bumblebees and rarely makes it through a day without unsweetened iced tea.
Erica began her photography career while pursuing a degree in Peace, Justice and Reconciliation.Compelled to document and share genuine stories of incredible individuals and organizations, it was a natural choice for Erica to combine photography and a passion for social justice. In addition to her lifestyle photography, Erica is available to shoot photos for both print and digital advertising campaigns, magazines, and other editorial/commercial assignments both domestic and internationally through Baker Stories, a Video and Photography business she runs with her awesome husband, Dave. With her passion for social justice, Erica seeks opportunities to use photography as a way to chronicle hopeful stories and inspire positive change.
