The Photographer

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website!  

I love photography as the medium to record our lives:  a good picture brings back the emotion, the sounds, smells, friends and family of that moment. 

As a mother of two amazing boys and military wife, the joy of raising my children in the fast pace of life has solidified the importance of capturing the moments that are so fleeting. Photographing life's blessings is my passion. I love my job!! Being able to deliver “The Shot” for you and your family is my honor. Life moves too fast... and you can’t go back and capture the moments later. Let me help you capture your moment for a life time...Images you will treasure. "Once you take the picture, it really happened.”... I say.  

I love to work outside in natural lighting, but also have a dedicated newborn studio in my home.  My studio is ready to customize your newborn session.  I am so prude to offer you tons of amazing props to choose from.  Let's capture your vision together.  I look forward to meeting & working with you and those you love.

Thank you for choosing ELP and for trusting me with your most precious treasures... your memories.  

--Erica L. Stoker
