Hey, girl!

  When I'm not creating portraits, you'll most likely find me at home working puzzles, reading & watching British mysteries, coloring with my niece, or binge watching Marvel movies with my son. Out and about, you can find me shopping for cute boutique clothing, eating Mexican, or getting my hair dyed a fun new color. My husband and I love to travel, and try to take as many literary & historical trips as possible. My favorite cities to visit repeatedly are Charleston & Savannah, and my dream is to visit London and sail on a Viking River Cruise.
 
  

I’m erika: lover of pretty sunsets, red pens, sherlock holmes, and potato chips. 

Quote to live by

“Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six     impossible things before breakfast.”

- Through the Looking Glass
by Lewis Carroll

     One morning last fall, I woke up, looked in the mirror, and realized a forty-year-old lady was staring back at me. But, if you're reading this, believe me, my senior year felt like yesterday. I've stood where you are now, granted it was quite awhile ago, but it's a special season in your life that you'll never forget, and will always feel like 'yesterday.  Sometimes, I wish my future-self could go back and whisper some advice to my past senior-self with the knowledge I have now. However, as Alice says in her Wonderland adventures, "It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then." And this is so very true. It has been your experiences (good or bad) that have allowed you to grow into the wonderful young lady or gentleman you've become, and it will be your experiences that mold you into your future-self. The only real piece of advice I can lend is to make sure you choose your experiences; do not let others choose them for you. Be proud and confident of who YOU are. Do the things YOU enjoy. Keep true to your morals and values at all times, and never let anyone lead you down a path that doesn't feel right for you. The times to come will seem overwhelming at times (college applications & exams, long nights of study, feeling like the semester will never end, busy sport schedules, working nights & weekends, and so forth), but I promise this season will fly by, and before you know it, you'll look back and be so proud of your accomplishments as you begin to build your life-long career, your own family, and a wonderful circle of life-long friends. I appreciate you taking the time to consider me to help capture images that will remind you of this special milestone for a lifetime.
