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. 

Colors of Fall | Charlotte Family photographer

The colors for this session were absolutely gorgeous at Independence Park.  I never know what kind of color a park or location will have in the fall.  It changes so quickly from week to week. For this session I was happily surprised to see all the colorful leaves, not to mention their clothing was perfect for the fall color. I have photographed this family for two year now and I just love seeing their littlest one grow.  Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing the older boys a well, but they don’t grow as fast as the youngest 🙂

The fall colors were full of yellow, maroon, and orange.  It was so beautiful and where ever I took a photo, the background was perfect.

With a busy 2 year old, I like to start with my classic portraits first since young kids do not last long. Then it’s all tickles, races, and games afterwards.  Luckily I had four people to help me with her!  This particular park has some beautiful stone structures overlooking a little water feature.  The sweet girl loved the water and we all had to keep are eyes on her or else she would have ended up in the water.

We ended this colorful session with leaf throwing, tickles, and games.  I can’t wait to go back to the park next fall!
