My name is Erika Carter and I live in Argyle Tx. I am married and the mother of two awesome young men who've had the experience of seeing me behind the lens of a camera to tell their story since birth. Taking pictures is and has been a great passion of mine for years now.
I use professional digital Canon camera bodies and lenses and do all my post-processing through Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Most of my images are produced using natural light which is timeless and unmatched in quality.
In the past few years, I have studied with several Dallas area photographers of enhance my skills in the field of photography. I also produce video slideshows for banquets, weddings, funerals and other life events. Please contact me for more information on these such events.
I don't consider myself a "Smile and say 'cheese'" type of photographer nor do I work out in a commercial studio setting. My goal is to tell your story -- You'll have a photo that you'll look at in a few weeks, months or years and say, "Oh, yes... I remember this..." and then you'll begin to tell your own story of the time and the place. The setting is your choice; a place where you feel comfortable and relaxed. This setting may be at your home, your school, a favorite park, sporting venue, or place of beauty. I want you to feel at home so feel free to bring whatever props you'd like.... sports gear, a favorite hat or scarf, blanket, book, stuffed animal, or in some cases, even your pet. The list could be endless and as original as you.
I like to have a pre-session consultation at which time I'll find out what you want out of our session. Special requests??? Well, we will talk about these during this session. I want you to have fun, relax and enjoy our photo shoot together so that you'll want to tell all your friends and family.
There is a session fee due at the time of booking which will vary according to the actual type of session necessary to tell your story. This fee is non-refundable but if you have to cancel appointment, your session can be rescheduled. This fee includes a pre-session consultation, a photo session for individual, group or family of your choice within Denton County. Also, included is a private on-line gallery for viewing as well as my time and talents editing your photos for preview. If you have a location in mind outside of Denton County please add $100 per 50 miles of travel to session fee price. Please keep in mind that many locations charge a fee for use of their facility and this fee will need to be paid at time of booking as well.
All prints (and I highly recommend prints) are priced a la carte, but packages are available as well as digital images and specialty products which include lay-flat books, photo books, photo greeting cards, baby announcements, graduation cards, and more. A full price list and options are located on the pricing page within this website. If you don't see something that fits your needs actually listed here on site, we will discuss your specific needs during the consultation we can work to customize something that works for you!
