Happy Marvelous Monday!
One of our favorite things about this blog, is that it gives us the chance to spread the word about super talented photographers! Today is no exception!
Erin Sricharoon of Captured Grace by Erin is a very talented photographer based out of Los Angeles. She has photographed people all over Southern California and she is willing to go anywhere her work takes her!
We have had the pleasure of getting to spend some time with Erin and she is such a sweetheart. We think she is amazing! Her dedication to her photography and her clients is incredible and we are sure you are going to love her just as much as we do.
Read on to learn more about this awesome lady and her photography business!
Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your business! What's your specialty?
I am married to my beloved and God’s gift to me. I am the daughter of two amazing parents, big sister to 6 siblings, 4 who are recently adopted (I love adoption!) and auntie to 2 of the most precious kids around.
I believe in Jesus. I love to smile! I love coffee and reading, even more if they occur together. Guess that explains how I met my husband in a book store.
I am a natural light portrait photographer specializing in newborns, children and families. I love kids and the creative chaos they bring to photo shoots! I live for the emotion, the moments in between the poses. I also love photographing women and really enjoy women's glamour photography. Every woman needs to be reminded of her beauty both inside and out!
Tell us about your journey! How did you get to where you are?
It has been a journey for sure! I shot film cameras growing up and I think I photographed every tree or flower in my hometown. I loved sending off rolls of film and seeing what turned out. Photography was my hobby. After college I became a middle school and high school teacher. I loved finding ways to integrate art and photography projects into my English lessons. Seeing my students lives through their lenses renewed my love for photography.
Then my nephew was born, my niece came soon after, all my friends started having kids, my siblings were adopted and suddenly kids and families were everywhere!! I could not stop documenting their love and knew I wanted to do this forever. I am currently building my business while working full time. I am so blessed to do what I love and be on this journey.
What are your favorite things about working in your field?
I love that this field is always changing, growing and developing. There is always something new to learn and master. It keeps me challenged and growing. I am so amazed by all the amazing education available, like CreativeLive, forums, Facebook groups and so many other venues. I am also so inspired by the talent in this field and the generosity of fellow photographers. They are truly special people.
I also absolutely love getting invited into the lives of the families I photograph. To make a connection when a family is anticipating their little addition and then to watch them grow up is priceless!
What are some of your plans/goals for the future?
Career wise my goals are to continue to push myself to grow and truly master my craft. I am working on building a strong foundation to my new business and I would love to open a natural light studio one day.
Personally, my husband and I are looking forward to starting our own family soon (possibly adopting) and I can't wait to see where God leads us. For now I am loving being a big sister and auntie!
