HELLO, I'M ERIKA...

I am a family photographer living in Milwaukee,Wisconsin with my partner and 4 year old son. Together we love to ride bikes, go on hikes, try new restaurants, build forts, play with Thomas trains, go camping, play chutes and ladders and have movie night. 

Some random things about me: 

Children and funny people are my favorite humans on the planet. I love love love taking photos of people laughing... I really could eat pizza everyday... I can't live without iced coffee, La Croix, and india pale ales...I like to wonder, like what happened before the big bang? Or, where do all the socks go?....I could use more patience. I should be less sarcastic. I suck at discipline... I like movies about love (especially if made in the 80's by John Hughes)...Forests and art museums are my sanctuaries... I do the happy dance when anthropologie and ikea catalogs come in the mail... I sing in the car...Currently blazing through Game of Thrones series, and its like whoa...

Writing about myself: not my favorite.
