Hiring Erielle for our family photo session was a fantastic experience. Erielle is professional, committed and fun from start to finish. She was very responsive at all times, and communicated clearly about what to expect before and during the session. She arrived well-prepared, but also showed great flexibility in following my suggestions or our infant daughter’s lead. At the end, she delivered beautiful pictures on time. I highly recommend to book Erielle for a photo session if you would like pictures of precious moments that you will enjoy for a lifetime.

Anyone who can make a 22-month-old comfortable in the same photos with her new six-day-old sister is really a psychological genius.

Erielle took the most beautiful pictures of my boys in a very easy, comfortable, quick and fun session. She truly managed to capture their looks and personalities as I see them. The only hard part is to decide which ones to put up in my house - all the pictures are so adorable and special, some funny, some dreamy, some just plain beautiful. Thanks Erielle!
