“Erin has a gift. Yes, her photography and vision are a gift, her beautiful smile that puts you at ease is a gift, her hard work and professionalism is a gift too- but I speak about something else. It is a gift that is hard to name, but she can create a transformation in a person. She, with ease, takes women from our everyday life of ho-hum and transforms us into a beauty that belongs in magazines. A transformation that starts on the outside and seeps to our insides little by little giving confidence where it was once lost.
I have many times looked at Erin’s beautiful work and thought, “Wow, if only I could look that good” I know now being one of her clients feels as wonderful as I thought it would!” – Mandy
“Prior to the release of my new book, I was in need of some updated professional headshots. I was referred to Erin by a colleague and after looking at the work on her site I was positive I wanted to work with her. From our first communication Erin was professional and personable, and made the effort to customize the shoot to my needs and wants. Using her extensive knowledge of what looks best on camera, she helped with jewelry and wardrobe selections and her hair and makeup team did a great job capturing exactly what I requested: professional, yet fresh!
quality, professional images and a great experience, I highly recommend Erin and her team!”– Tasha, www.tashaeurich.com
“I was very nervous about doing my first beauty shoot. I was also worried about feeling self-centered for doing pictures. I had hesitations about spending money on myself. But it was an AMAZING experience! I felt beautiful and so special. Erin is so much fun and made me feel like I had known her for years.
I loved every photo and am so thankful that my family will have photos of me for years to come. I know one day these photos will be a family keepsake. I’m so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone to do these. I have now had photos done 4 times by Erin! My husbands jaw dropped each time and that was worth every penny!
If you are on the fence, take the chance. You will not regret this. Moms and women deserve to feel special and to do something for themselves!” -Heather
“Erin is your go-to-photographer if you not only want to feel beautiful and receive quality photos, but also if you just want to have a fun time! I’ve had my photos taken by Erin not once, not twice, but three times! (So far) and I know I will definitely be back for more!
If you’re shy in front of the camera, you wont be by the end of the session. Erin pulls the confidence out of you by showing that you are beautiful for you! Not only will you love your photos, but you will feel like you just made a brand new bestie!” -Carissa
“When I first thought of the idea of having my pictures, I was very nervous because being in front of the camera mortified me. But I wanted to do something for myself. Seeing Erin’s portfolio, I was blown away on how beautiful the women looked in their beauty shots, and I was hoping I could do something like that as well. On the day of my photo shoot, I was so nervous because I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into. When my make-up and hair were done, I honestly got very teary eyed because I actually felt very pretty. Just that one day, I felt beautiful and I didn’t want it to end. I’m not one that people say that I’m beautiful because that’s never been the case for me; however, that day, I felt like a different person and will cherish that day for the rest of my life. Working with Erin, she made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera. It was like we were just having fun!
So to the ladies out there who battle with self esteem issues like me, I highly recommend doing beauty shots of yourself and work with the beautiful and amazing Erin Michelle! Every woman is beautiful in their own way, and that will come out in your photos. I promise that you’ll have an amazing day that you will never forget, and Erin will make sure of that!” -Diana
“My experience with Erin Blackwell was nothing but spectacular. She was extremely professional and truly cared about any and all needs I had as a client. We had a pre-session meeting about the clothes and beauty looks I wanted. She gave me very insightful suggestions. The photo-shoot itself was the most fun day ever! Erin came up with a great idea which was to do 2 looks for the types of outfits I wanted. This is a perfect example of her going above and beyond for her clients, as I know it was extra work for her and her team. I was completely pampered by her hair and make-up stylist with refreshments provided. Erin made me feel totally comfortable and beautiful during the session. She was patient and showed me visuals of poses I could try. After, she provided a reveal session of my photos which was an absolute blast!!! I have never been so pleased about a product that I have received. They are most beautiful images I have ever taken and I am so thankful I had opportunity to do this photo-shoot. She was able to capture beauty that I never knew I had. With the highest of recommendations choose Erin Blackwell for any photography you need.” -Anna
“Erin is amazing. She is everything you’d want in a photographer and more. She’s creative, intelligent, sweet, personable, real, professional not to mention beautiful and VERY talented. Her products are top quality and she delivers everything on time.
“‘DAAH!” “AHHH!”, followed by “That’s the one!'” are just a sample of enthusiastic expressions you’ll get out of Erin as the shoot begins. As the model, it can often be unmotivating to receive little to no feed back from the photographer, but Erin never falls short of a couple “OH MY GOODNESS” and “SCORE!”‘s along the way. Not only does she get the job done well, but working with Erin is something to look forward to, it’s like hanging out with an old friend. She’s open to new ideas and styles, always assists in outfit selection, and is ready to boost your ego with the first snap shot. Seeing “Erin Blackwell, LLC has tagged you in a photo” is the equivalent to finding money in your back pocket. Having the shot in mind that she wants, an undeniable talent and an auspicious personality, Erin Blackwell will present you with a photo that has no choice but to be printed and hung up on the wall.” -Hannah
“I recommend Erin to everyone I know who mentions having pictures taken or asks me about my pictures. It made me see myself in a different light. The way I felt during and after the session was amazing. I loved the feeling of being pampered by having my hair and makeup done for me. Seeing the pictures was unbelievable and a little bit emotional for me.” -Esperanza
“Before the shoot, I felt self-conscious about my new hair cut. It was new and short and not blonde. I missed my long, luscious hair. I also felt self-conscious about my body, the kind of self-conscious where, the mirror never does you justice. Ever. I wanted to know what I really look like, what other people see.
During the shoot, I felt important, I felt nervous for being the center of attention for my beauty, not my brains. It was magnificent! I felt beautiful in MY OWN CLOTHES, with my OWN BODY. I felt like I could let lose and have fun because I trusted Erin in her expertise to capture the beauty.
My shoot with Erin was such an eye opening experience! And that’s just it, it wasn’t just getting photos taken, it was an EXPERIENCE! Everyone deserves to see themselves for what they really are, the beauty that they really hold.” -Jessica
“Erin shot my boudoir photos and family photos.Who doesn’t need family photos? She is detailed, artistic and experienced and affordable. The boudoir photos were a 10th anniversary gift to my husband. Need I say more? Can you think of a man that would not LOVE that gift? The pictures were elegant, classy and tasteful.
Erin is gifted not only at photography but making people feel amazing about themselves. I have someone to shoot my family photos for life!” -Julia
“This was the first time ever being in front for the camera. I am a hairstylist and always behind the scenes. I have to say that it was an awesome experience and never would have done it if were not for Erin’s eye for beauty she saw something in me that I hadn’t even taken time to notice. I also liked her customer service skills with the emails on how to prep for the day of the shoot and what to expect after your shoot. Erin was super easy to work with and very fast with editing. I even had a couple of changes to some of the images and she completed them right away. I am very happy to now have professional images for my business. Thanks for the memories Erin.” -Keva
“I have never seen mom say she likes a photo of herself you don’t know what you did for me and her with that! Your amazing and talented 🙂 I just had to thank you for everything you helped give me the perfect Mother’s Day gift!” – Alex
“Over the past few years I had been thinking about doing a photo shoot, but never made time to do it. Last year was a pretty rough year for me and I was starting to make some positive changes. One of the first things I made a priority was to schedule a photo shoot. I thought it would be a great way to start a new year! A few of my friends had recently done shoots with Erin and their pictures were amazing, so I knew I would be in good hands. We talked about a theme, I showed her what I was looking for, and she made it happen. I couldn’t believe how my pictures turned out! Erin is very talented. I had a great experience and would highly recommend her to anyone I know!” – Andrea
“I had a mother/daughter shoot and Erin had us laughing and made us feel beautiful. It was a blast!! Erin captured us beautifully. This time will never happen again and I am so thankful we had it documented with professional photos. I loved everything about the experience. I would highly recommend Erin to take anyone’s picture.” -Bonnie
“Thank you so very much for everything, the folio box is beautiful, pictures are beautiful and the wallets are a great surprise!!!! This has been the most wonderful experience and I have no doubt we will do it again sometime!!!!! You have all of my referrals!!!” -Erin
“I am not a huge picture person and for whatever reason I just don’t like myself in pictures, so I wasn’t really expecting a whole lot. Erin was great because she really helped me feel comfortable in front of the camera and helped me figure out how to pose so I didn’t have to worry whether or not I was looking super goofy! Erin is simply the best and I would totally recommend her to anyone needing professional photos!” -Heather, www.makeupbyheatherb.com
“I loved how laid back, but professional Erin was. She made it seem effortless to transform her studio and our wardrobe into the perfect mix for pictures that captured what we were looking for! It was a great experience in a timely manner! It was so fun to do this with my sisters and Erin made the experience incredible.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend because of how personal and fun Erin made it from the very start to finish. Erin is very talented, personal, and professional. You will not regret choosing her for your photos!” -Holly, www.hollyworley.com
“During my photo session I felt great! I ended up putting my worries aside and just had a fun time with it. I left my photo session feeling much more relaxed about what the outcome was going to be. I was worried because I didn’t feel put together, that I was going to appear that way on camera, but when Erin showed me a few sneak peeks I felt more confident and excited to see the rest!
It is worth investing through Erin because she will get you the best of the best! Erin is your go-to-photographer if you not only want to feel beautiful and receive quality photos, but also if you just want to have a fun time! I’ve had my photos taken by Erin not once, not twice, but three times! (So far) and I know I will definitely be back for more!” – Alli, www.alli-b.com
“If you have thought about having Erin take your pics, you really should follow through with it. I know it’s tempting to think negative thoughts, but this woman is so positive, all of that melts away instantly. She is so cheerful, it’s contagious. I myself do not have high self esteem. I’ve struggled with my weight for years and having a baby 9 months ago just made things worse. Yes HE is the best thing I’ve ever done but still, your body is and will never be the same. With that being said, I can’t even begin to tell you how encouraging and uplifting was she. Never once did you hear “suck it in” or anything like that. Not only is she kind with her words and actions, she truly has a genuine heart. I met her because she photographed a good, I mean so good she is like family now, friend who has stage 4 cancer and maybe 1 year to live. Needless to say, people like Erin make this world a better place. She cares, she is sensitive and most of all fun and welcoming. It was not awkward, not even a second…. And let me tell you I thought it was going to be. I walked in feeling shy, uncomfortable, fat and ugly and left feeling beautiful and like a different person. Give it a try, you won’t regret it!!” -Amanda
“During my shoot with Erin, I felt very empowered and my self-esteem was shot through the roof. That sounds very egotistical and narcassitic. But I have never ever felt confident about myself and Erin brought out the best in me. It felt wonderful to feel pretty and believe that I am pretty. And that it is okay to say ‘I am pretty!’
I just adore Erin! She really made my day and I feel like I made a new friend that day. She and her crew are professional, but they are not overly serious either. They made me feel like we have been friends for years. So down to earth and I really appreciate that considering I can be very introverted with people I do not know very well. Thank you again Erin for giving me a wonderful experience.
My husband was very proud of the photos and has one of the photos displayed on his desk at work. He swells with pride when someone says ‘Dang your wife is hot!'” -Kari
“For my first experience with a professional photographer, I was beyond impressed with Erin Blackwell Studio. I was so nervous, but immediately felt relieved once we got started. The makeup artist was absolutely lovely and Erin made me feel way more relaxed than I expected. I had a great time! I felt beautiful and comfortable and was laughing my butt off most of the shoot. Not only was the shoot a blast, but the pictures came out AMAZING! I could not be happier with Erin’s work.
There is no doubt that Erin Blackwell will be the only photographer that I will have do my photos in the future. I do, and will continue to recommend her to anyone and everyone from brides to be, to expecting or new parents. I really appreciated the personalized experience and felt like it was someone who truly cared about her clients and wanted it to be a memorable and fun time for everyone. I loved that I was encouraged to incorporate my own unique style into the shoot. She helped me take a vague idea of how I imagined my shoot going and made it come to life and I truly could not be more pleased.” -Kathryn
“Erin was so talented and creative! She has photographed myself and my family numerous times and I am always amazed every time I see her work! She is truly a natural at what she does! I will continue to use her in the future for pictures!” -Maryssa, www.maryssagmakeup.com
“Erin is wonderful! She made me and my girls feel very very comfortable in her studio. I felt like she was one of my girl friends asking her for opinions on what accessories or shoes looked better with what outfit. It’s like she knew me.
I felt so pampered and beautiful. I really enjoyed getting my hair and make up done, which is the one BIG thing I was most afraid about, but since Erin has such impeccable taste and is so professional, she only works with the best. I have had my make up done professionally in the past and was very disappointed BUT not this time.
I would totally recommend Erin, in fact I have had several people really say that they loved how MY pictures turned out. They are very natural looking with some many photographers abusing photo shop these days. In fact I have had many people inquiry about getting Erin’s information.” -Mattie
“I’ve known Erin now for 3 years…in the past 3 years Erin has shot the most important milestones in my life. From my boudoir, to wedding to my newborn’s first pics…she is amazing. She is by far the best photographer I have ever worked with. I could go on and on about Erin but her talent speaks for itself. I have sent friends, family and clients of my own to her and they are so dedicated to her as well. I love shooting with her and anyone who is behind that lense of hers is gonna 100% be happy with the finished product. Erin’s work is flawless!” -Melina
“I am fortunate enough to have experienced at least one shoot with Erin. Thank you to Erin and her team for their exceptional customer service and work. They’re seriously the best I’ve ever worked with.” -Nadia
“My favorite part of my shoot with Erin was the ability to be care free. I didn’t worry about my faults. I totally trusted the photographer to deal with them. I’d seen enough of Erin and her crew’s work online to not be scared. My husband LOVED them and I would totally recommend Erin!” -Nancy
“After seeing my photos from Erin, I was blown away, literally moved to tears, at the end result.
It is an experience with tangible results that will last a lifetime.
My favorite part of my shoot was how Erin makes you feel beautiful, how she makes you laugh, how she can capture the ‘real’ you, how she can make you feel comfortable.” -Nancy
“My experience with Erin was amazing! I can be extremely shy and am usually not one to willingly pose for pictures. Like most women, I am conscious of my “body issues” but I cannot remember a single moment during my session with her that I felt self-conscious or worried I would dislike how the pictures came out. Erin did a great job making me feel comfortable, making me laugh naturally (because she is darn funny!) and overall happy I had decided to do this for myself.
EVERYONE should take a day to be pampered, have their hair and makeup done and let someone who genuinely cares about you take their pictures! It does wonders for self-esteem and leaves you with images that you can have forever to remind you how beautiful you are and that others see your beauty as well. Thank you Erin!”– Robyn
“During my shoot with Erin, I felt pretty and confident and wondered why in the heck was I so nervous about this!?! Erin and her assistant made me feel completely relaxed and at ease during my session, and I was soon very comfortable in my low coverage attire!
Getting your hair/makeup/ and portraits done is definitely a gift you can give yourself! It definitely made me feel better about myself….gives you a real great confidence boost! A far better experience than those “Glamour Shots” that they used to do back in the day! Erin makes you look and feel like a real model.
Viewing my proofs and seeing the end result was definitely the icing on the cake!!! My husband was absolutely blown away, and thanked me over and over for doing this for him. He also call Erin his “New Best Friend” even thought they have not formally met.” -Shawnda
“I’ve shot with a good handful of photographers and you were the best!! Absolutely love your style, your passion, your professionalism and of course, your work! Love love love! Can’t say enough good things!” -Stoney, www.stoneyeskew.com
“Erin made it very easy to be comfortable and easy going. I was still nervous, but it got easier. I love the photos, I have been rejuvenated and am making more of an effort to look my best everyday.
The reaction was a very positive one, I posted one photo as my cover photo on FB and I had a HUGE outpour of compliments and friends excited about my ‘new’ look. I love the fact that all of them capture who I really am and how others really see me. Erin, you rock!”– Sylvia
“Before my session, I was a little nervous, but in a short time with Erin I felt beautiful and relaxed. The whole experience from start to finish. Great makeup team, setting and relaxed atmosphere. This was a fun date day and I loved capturing just couple shots of me and my husband!” -Vanessa
