" I don't even know where to begin to capture how wonderful it was to work with Erica. She captured the joy and love of our family while patiently navigating the craziness (and even some moments of meltdowns) of 3 little kids. We were moved to tears seeing how she captured our family." 

-Katherine L. 

Oh hey there! 

     I am a lifestyle, natural light photographer based out of Northern Virginia where I reside with my husband, 2 little girls and Bernedoodle. I specialize in Lifestyle family and newborn photography, but really I love to dabble in it all! 


Photography is my passion and my creative outlet. My love for photography began with wanting to capture and document my children. I wanted to document and remember all the details and pieces of their childhood forever. I launched Erica D. Photography in 2017 and have been growing my business since. I consider my camera an extension of myself where I can document and tell your story the way I see it through my lens. 

My sessions are fun and relaxed. As your photographer I want to get to know you and your family. We will laugh, have fun and capture the organic emotions and connections you share with your loved ones.  While we will capture a few lightly posed photographs,  the majority of our session will be on the move having fun. The best sessions are the ones where you forget the camera is there. I want you to come away from your time with me, with fun memories and unique artistic images that reflect the truse spirit of both you and your family.
