TESTIMONIALS

Erin was a terrific match for us from the beginning. She was very kind, timely and professional when responding to emails. She drove to my home to see the space my birth would take place in and we discussed my wishes for birth and photographs. She was extremely personable, gentle and put me right at ease, which I didn't realize at the time, but was vital because she would be in such an intimate space. I was so happy to see her when she arrived for the birth. 

 

Somehow, Erin made her way silently all around our crowded room to capture various angles and aspects of the birth. When I look at these birth photos I see my partner being my steadfast support, I see my wonderful midwife, I see struggle, I see strain, I see patience, I see agony, I see tears of joy, I see strength, I see elation and love. I get very emotional, overcome with pride and love and gratitude every time I look at the photographs Erin took of my birth. They have such power and bring back feelings from such an incredible and difficult experience. I would never be able to relive my birth without Erin's beautiful photographs.

Erin was incredible every step of the way. My husband and I booked her for maternity, first 48 hours, and newborn photos. She was so much fun to work with during each of those sessions. Erin was so respectful and kind when she came to the hospital to capture those precious moments after our baby was born. She chose the best angles to showcase our best and first real moments as a family. I think her most impressive feat was the way she patiently rocked our 2-week-old to sleep in order to get the most beautiful shots. Those newborn photos turned out so wonderfully! As did all the others. We are extremely pleased with the memories she captured for us!

I have known Erin for a little under two years. She is the only person who has done pictures for us in that timeframe. Previously, I had hopped around from photographer to photographer, always trying to find the best deal. Once I tried Erin and saw the caliber of pictures she provided, I have never looked back! Erin documented the birth of our youngest baby. She was present in the delivery room, but was unobtrusive. I hardly even knew she was there. And yet the photos she took were phenomenal! They captured the pain, the fear, the strength, the joy, and the love in the room. We had Erin to our home for a Fresh 48 session with our newborn babe shortly after returning home from the hospital. She arrived with all of her gear, props, and lights, and even a noise maker to shush our baby and to soothe him. As a mother of six herself, Erin was uber comfortable with both our crying newborn and with any pauses necessary for diaper changes and nursing. And, the photos turned out amazing! Even the shots with our three older kids, who aren’t always cooperative. We have also hired Erin for three family sessions, and she has been great negotiating those shots with crying, grumpy kids in the cold and the rain. I can’t even tell you how many compliments we get from friends and family who visit our home and see the pictures from Erin. They are stunning! My husband and I have used Erin for professional head shots as well. And I have had Erin take photos of me for my doula business. I refer Erin to anyone I know (friends and doula clients) looking for professional photos. She is a joy to work with, her turnaround is quick, and the quality of the photos is phenomenal! If you’re thinking of hiring Erin, do so. You will not be disappointed!

Erin is without question one of the most flexible, caring, and competent photographers we've ever worked with. Literally the day we met her, late that night, my wife went into labor, and Erin jumped out of bed to ensure this amazing day was captured beautifully. The day of, day after, and then later that week, Erin seamlessly made priceless memories happen, and we will be forever grateful for her for enabling that. I couldn't' recommend anyone maternity photographer higher than Erin Jones! Give yourself the gift of working with Erin... you deserve the best... and she's the best!
