A relaxed & unstuffy experience for the modern family who dreams of high-quality photos full of authentic personality.
At Photography by Erin Leigh, I’m on a mission to help everyday people enjoy their photography experience by guiding them through every step of the process to make sure they look and feel like the best version of themselves.
Hey, I get it.
You’re here because you’re searching for your unicorn... uhhh... I mean your perfect photographer.
When you’re hiring someone in the creative field, it feels like such a gamble because you can’t even see what you’ve bought until it’s over (you should have seen me researching microblading and trying to find the right artist for me). You’re worried that you’re going to spend your hard earned money and you're not gonna get the pinterest-worthy results you’ve been dreaming of to show off to your family and friends.
You’ve always been a bit awkward, you don’t know what to do with your hands, and you have a cringe-worthy fake smile that always comes out in photos… These are the things that haunt your dreams in the weeks leading up to photo day (if you even got up the nerve to book it).
Ever wish someone would walk you through each step, giving you the exact information that you need to prepare you in an easy & stress-free way? Are you looking for someone who can put your mind at ease, guide you through natural and unforced poses while taking away the awkwardness so that your real smile shines through? Maybe someone with a ton of experience and raving reviews from so many others who felt just like you do?
Oh, good - you’re in the right place! That’s where I come in.

She is so easy to work with, very responsive, and such a sweet, genuine person.
Erin is a dream come true when it comes to photography! She is a true artist and a sensational human being at that!
Erin is kind, professional, detail oriented, & great at making you feel comfortable & confident in front of the camera.
Having over 13 years of experience in the photography field means that I can basically do all the techy stuff in my sleep, which allows me to focus on YOU instead of my gear. I’m also a huge advocate for preparing ahead and then going with the flow. What this means for you is that I’m going to be giving you a ton of practical (and super helpful) tips and advice to make sure that you feel well-educated and well-prepared (outfit & location help, tips to keep things stress-free, and what to expect along the way. For weddings this also means that I build you a custom timeline that you can use as you work on the other parts of your planning)... Then, on photo day, I adapt to whatever comes up and make any necessary adjustments to keep things going smoothly.
Being a military wife for six years taught me the value of organization, preparation, and adaptability.
What I learned from military life...
My son Nicolas was born in 2006 while his dad was deployed to Iraq. The photos I sent were his only connection to his son for a long time. So while it taught me just how truly valuable and crucial photos can be, I also got hooked on the challenge of striving towards that perfect trifecta - combining lighting, composition, and expressions to create ‘the perfect photo’ - something I still strive for every time I pick up my camera!
It all started when...

Getting photos taken of you can be awkward (at least for me) but Erin made us feel so comfortable.
To say she was amazing would be an understatement!
She was by far the best photographer I have ever worked with and I would book her a million times over!
In a crazy world where there is so much negativity & hate, I truly believe that the Golden Rule is more important than ever. You can never go wrong by treating others the way you want to be treated. Extending grace, kindness & compassion can literally transform someone's day, and I do my best to live this in my life and business. I can't wait to connect with you!
