I’ve been photographing in the Austin area and beyond since 2011. One of my greatest pleasures in life is creating beautiful things. I’ve been a maker ever since I was a small child. Whether or not I went to art school after high school was never a question, it was just the next step. Art school was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. I was lucky enough to study abroad in Florence, Italy and I adored every second of that experience. My creativity was ignited and my obsession with travel was born.
My husband Alex also studied abroad with me that semester in Italy, some would say the only reason he decided to study abroad was because I chose to. Let’s not beat around the bush, that’s exactly what happened. Our very first date was to the Leaning Tower of Pisa at sunset…I mean, what?!?! Italy was also the site of my first photography course. I borrowed my dad’s Minolta film camera that semester and absolutely fell in love with making photographs through the lens and then spending hours upon hours in the dark room processing my film and developing my prints.
Four years after our life-changing study abroad experience Alex and I said “I do” in Florence where it all began. We’ve been traveling the world together ever since, it’s an addiction of mine. Together, Alex and I have two perfectly perfect little girls. Olive is six and Penny is 8 months old. Bringing my precious daughters home, nurturing and comforting them, giving myself over to them, it is my most important work. When I talk about them I call them "the girls" and then I smile and pinch myself a million times. We have girls!
I'm eryn and I'm glad to meet ya!
I grew up in Austin and am an Austinite through and through. Everything from food trucks to Barton Springs to bats on Congress, I love it all!
I started swimming competitively at age 13 and still swim on a Masters swim team 2-3 times a week. I’m also a sucker for clear, turquoise ocean water. I seem to plan all our vacations around a beach.
While studying abroad in Florence, Italy I couldn’t get enough of this stuff! Whether it was on crepes or in gelato, I had to have it allll. Still do.
I’ve been a maker my entire life. From a young age I did arts and craft projects with my parents. My dad is a skilled painter and there isn’t anything my mom hasn’t crafted. Thanks mom and dad for my creative gene!
I began my yoga practice in 2011 and have savored my time on the mat ever since. I often refer to yoga as my body’s medicine. It just makes me feel good.
In January 2007 Alex called me on my lunch break and said, "so I was on a walk and I found this cute dog..." I cut him off and blurted out, "bring her home!!!" I don't know why I assumed she was a girl but I knew she was ours and I'm still so proud of us for our impulsive dog adoption that day. Saci (saw-chee) has been a dream dog ever since. So sweet and so loyal.
In 2018 we built an adorable home office for my business in the backyard. During the building process I was most excited to pick out the smaller design features, number one being a bright, pink door! Wishes come true and I now have a private oasis in the backyard where I can escape the chaos of parenting two small children.
My loyal pup Saci accompanies me 100% of the time and together we email clients, edit photos, and map out wedding day timelines. I joke that my blood pressure lowers as soon as I walk through the pink doors and turn on my favorite podcasts.
