Maternity :: Newborn :: Families :: Commercial

I am a full-time photographer who shoots families, brands, and couples all year long. I’ll help you along the way, with input on wardrobe choices and more, and we’ll have so much fun during the session.

On my commercial side, I help small business owners who need consistent brand imagery for their website and social media feeds. You can trust my eye for locations and my consistent, timeless look in your photos.


Weddings :: Families

When I’m not photographing beautiful couples and families, you can find me cultivating a space for inspiration and hope on my personal YouTube channel and podcast, Conversations with Charity. You’ll find recipes, daily adventures, travel, photography, meaningful conversations, art, and all the in between! I believe there is something to learn from every life experience, and these stories have the power to liberate and inspire hope.

Owner and lead photographer Erin Smith has always had an enthusiasm for photography, transforming her hobby into a full-fledged business. Boudoir photography is a passion of Erin’s, and she loves helping women love themselves again.

Boudoir by Erin specializes in regular boudoir, maternity boudoir, couples boudoir, male “dudoir” boudoir, and outdoor boudoir.


Maternity :: Newborn :: Families

I’m Erica, an in-home and outdoor Dallas photographer specializing in lifestyle photography—which means less posing and more authenticity. I love working with mothers of all kinds through maternity, newborn, and family sessions. We’ll create an experience where your family will thrive and your personality will shine through. As a mother to two young boys, I know the value of documenting memories.

I want you to fall in love with your photos! To capture these memories for you is a privilege, especially for young families with little ones who are growing up way too fast!


Maternity :: Birth Photography :: Newborn :: Families :: Headshots

I’m excited to announce the opening of my new studio in Prosper, TX (October 2021). Clients come to me for a FULL SERVICE, luxury experience—I provide professional makeup, over 40 maternity gowns for use, tons of newborn props, heirloom albums, etc. We can even hang the portraits in your home so you don’t have to do any hard work!


Maternity :: Newborn :: Families :: Events/Birthdays/Parties

Giggly faces and candid moments are the heart of my photography sessions. I love creating an experience that the whole family will enjoy by tailoring the photoshoot to the needs of each family. I primarily shoot outdoors because I love the way the natural light breathes light into images, but if you want to do an in-home session I may make an exception. 😉 Reach out if you want to relax and leave the worry of “who’s smiling at the camera?” behind you.


Maternity :: Newborn :: Families

Oh, babies! I love babies! They don’t call them bundles of joy for nothing. I specialize in newborn photography, and I want to preserve these moments for your family in a unique and timeless way. I am so passionate about providing families with high quality images of their special moments in a safe and comfortable environment.


Maternity :: Families

I focus on families and children, couples, maternity, engagement, and senior portraits. I want you to know that if you are ever in front of my camera, I’m going to be smiling like crazy during the whole session and the whole time I’m editing afterward. Capturing a sweet moment on camera makes me SO happy, and I sure hope it makes every one of my clients just as happy, too.
