Erika Michelle will no longer take new bookings.  If your session is currently booked, we will proceed as scheduled. 

I have decided to go back to my career as a special education teacher.  Due to the demands of this position, I need to take a step back from the buisness.  

Thank you for your support. 

Blue Eyed Cutie | Gastonia Baby Photographer

I have had the honor of watching this family grow from 1 to 4 kids!  This family was one of my very first newborn and first birthday sessions and I am so honored they have stuck with me all these years!

For their fourth boy, we planned a classic blue and green set up.  Mom wanted something to make his blue eyes stand out.  Baby boy and his Dad are the only ones with blue eyes!  I just love this rich dark blue color agains his light blue yes and the bright green and blue are a fun and contrasting color.

First we started with some family photos. It  has been such a long wet fall, winter, and now spring and on this day, the rain was just not letting up.  So we planned an inside mini family session.  I love how the photos turned out.  Simple and classic.

We next moved into the cake smash session.  Little blue eyed baby boy was not a fan of his cake.  He did not even take a bite on his own!  But his three older brothers were happy to help him out.  After a few attempts, it was clear he was not going to have fun with his cake, so we moved into the fun bath time.  He loved the bath and we got lots of great smiles!
