One of the perks of being a Dallas Maternity Photographer is getting the opportunity to capture memories for fellow moms, memories they will cherish for a lifetime.

Meet Erika. She is a sweet and beautiful mom of one and a fellow photographer. Erika resides in Allen, Texas with her husband and son. Erika and her husband are very excited to welcome a precious daughter to their family. She is very tall, which can sometimes present a challenge, but we didn’t let that stop us from creating beautiful portraits.

Erika and her husband met college and are college sweethearts. How romantic is that? Her husband is African American and their children are biracial. I cannot wait to meet their new little one upon her arrival.

Being a photographer, we are accustomed to being behind the lens and not in front of it. Erika mentioned a few times during the shoot that it was awkward being on the other side of the lens. She also stressed the importance of having a true connection with your photographer.

Sometimes you have to just let your subject stand still. There’s such beauty in it.

Erika is so down to earth and was a complete natural to work with.
