I graduated Magna Cum Laude with Honors from Gettysburg College in 2005 with a major in Creative Writing and minors in Studio Art and Religion. In 2007 I received my Master of Fine Arts from Queens University of Charlotte. Combining my lifelong love of storytelling and visual arts, I opened Erin’s Rays Boutique Photography in 2009 where I specializes in fashion inspired wedding and senior portraiture that mixes emotional storytelling with vibrant and artistic imagery. I am currently a Certified Professional Photographer Candidate through the Professional Photographer’s of America. My studio is a reflection of my passions; the environment, fashion, storytelling, family (even the four-footed kind) and preserving our once-in-a-lifetime moments.
I can’t wait to create your next family heirloom!
Best Wishes –
In my house, dark chocolate is called medicine, if you sit down you’ll probably end up with a cat on your lap, and food will make anything better (BOTH my grandmother’s taught me this).
I’m a bookworm, Jane Austen lover – and I’ll even admit to having a largish addiction to well written romance novels. I LOVE westerns – the original “The Angel and The Badman” being my favorite. Oh, and it needs to be watched in black and white. Trust me on this one.
I don’t see anything wrong with having a cat for a best friend.
And I think I can change the world. Correction, I’m definitely changing the world.
How? By being a Green Goddess, an Animal Crusader, and, most importantly, The World’s Greatest Aunt (I have documentation to prove the last one).
Erin’s Rays is a home based studio located on a 55 acre farm near Catawissa PA. The farm combined with another family property two miles away gives me a variety of session locations not available to anyone else – a bridge in the Enchanted Forrest – an antique stone wall – barns and farm buildings – a pond with a dock – if you’re feeling anything in a natural surrounding I’ve got you covered. There is also a small indoor studio space and professional meeting space where you’ll see samples of our products and view your images.
The studio is committed to a few things. Creating one of a kind fine art portraits for your home. That means no session is ever duplicated exactly. Each one is custom designed to reflect your personality, relationships, and your decor. The other is creating beautiful things that are environmentally friendly. Not everything that is environmentally friendly has to have that earthy-granola look. If you like that, great, but if you’re style is super modern, well, I have some eco-chic products for you as well. Personally I like to combine the two for that farmhouse glam or rustic luxe look. And of course I’m also committed to images that make your heart sing, that capture your story, and make you go ‘damn I look good!’.
