Erin is a kind, fun and professional photographer to work with. When I look at our family portraits, my heart is so happy to see how they turned out despite us rangling our wriggly-wiggly-worm daughter. During the session, Erin came prepared to ensure she had the attention of our daughter so she could capture her pretty face in the photos. She even made sure that my husband and I got photos of us as a couple. I would recommend Erin because her energy makes for a easy-going session where you and your family can be yourselves. We couldn’t believe the time flew by like it did because we genuinely enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely be using Erin again in the future. 🧡

Where do I start?! Working with Erin from start to finish was nothing but pleasurable. She is extremely personable and her communication through out from initial booking until receiving the final images was immaculate. During the actual session she made me feel so comfortable and confident and really listened to what I wanted while maintaining her artistic style. I love my photos and will remember them forever! If you’re wondering if she’s worth it, she is!

Erin is hands down the best outdoor family photographer in Bowie! She captured my little family so beautifully and was great with our 4 yr old. Her style is so beautiful and she knows how to get all the genuine smiles and connections -- getting family photos of us at our best, loving selves.

Got to do a newborn photo session with Erin today and it was an awesome experience. I normally hate taking pictures, and hate photography sessions, but Erin made the two hours breeze by. She was super easy to work with, knew how to get the right photo without too much effort, and was super accommodating. If you are in need of photography services, I highly recommend her.

Erin photographed our family for fall photos this year and the images are absolutely stunning. She was kind, and patient, and supremely talented. We will be using her every year!!!

Erin Link is amazing to work with - she's super responsive, thoughtful, professional, and her photographs are just stunning. I'm in such awe of her ability to capture beautiful pictures. I had a maternity photo session with her and look forward to booking her in the future to capture our families moments. Her turnaround time is great and she's very reasonably priced. If you're looking to get high quality beautiful photographs - hire Erin! She is an incredibly talented photographer!!

pricing

A separate, non-refundable session fee* is due at time of booking. This allows me to customize your full experience; along with secures your session date on my calendar.

By separating the session fee from the option to purchase specific pictures later, you can customize your experience based on your preferences and budget. There’s no need for large upfront payments! You can select your favorite photos after seeing what I’ve captured. My goal is to provide you with a personalized and enjoyable photography session, ensuring your memories are captured just the way you want them. It’s all about your photos, your way!

One-Time Session Fee:

One Time Payment: $400

Digital Image Collections begin at $315 per session. With an average total investment for 2 sessions of $1250.

please note

The session fee is not applied to your final collection purchase and does not include digital images or products. Digital images and prints are purchased separately; once you see your final images. This allows you to choose the package that will be the best fit for your family’s needs.

GOT SOME QUESTIONS?


I offer lifestyle photography services for family and motherhood portraits (this includes maternity and newborn sessions). I like to take a relaxed, and natural approach during my sessions. While I do pose my clients, I try to do so in a way that doesn’t feel too forced or non-genuine. As for my editing techniques, I love bright and well-lit photographs; full of color.

Working as a preschool teacher for 10 years and a mother for 5 years has provided me with valuable skills that I have been applying to my family photography since 2020. I am familiar with supporting children and understand how to engage and connect with them, resulting in natural and authentic family photos. Additionally, I have learned how to create a comfortable and relaxed session environment, which is essential in bringing out the best in each family member. Overall, my experience working with children and families, combined with my photography skills, makes me a great fit for families looking for a photographer in Annapolis.

For the Family Story Series, I charge a one-time (non-refundable) session fee, which covers my time and talent, as well as any pre-session consultations and post-processing of your images. No digital images or products are included, and the session fee is NOT applied to your collection cost.

For this bundle package, after each session, I offer a selection of discounted collections you may purchase, separately, so you can choose what best fits your needs and budget. They include a certain number of digital images plus a complementary print credit.

I take great care going over all of your images and spend some time looking through to narrow down your gallery to the best of the best images. Because my sessions are moment based, I pick the best moments to edit and share with you. I do guarantee at least 40 images in your gallery to choose from. I do not release RAW or unedited images.

Absolutely! We will work together to choose a location from a list of my preferred locations in the Bowie area including places like Kinder Farm Park, Patapsco State Park, and Beverly Triton Nature Park. Locations that are not listed or have a drive time beyond 30 minutes from 20715 will be subject to an additional travel fee (this is a nominal fee to allow for addt’l gas, driving, and scouting time), and possible permit fees.*

*I do not currently offer sessions at Monuments/Memorials in Washington DC/Alexandria.

My outdoor sessions are scheduled for sunset (and occasionally sunrise). I do not shoot midday as it doesn’t align with my artistic preferences. (I know in the spring and summer months, this is often past kids’ bedtimes. I want to reassure you, that with some minor adjustments, I find that young children almost always do very well; regardless of the later time. Don’t let this fear alone prevent you from booking.) Studio sessions are scheduled around 10 am.

For ALL sessions: I recommend getting on my schedule a minumum of 2 months ahead of time. My session dates are limited and fill up quickly. This also ensures we have ample time to plan and acquire any permits and necessary outfit pieces.

Addt’ly for newborn sessions: We’ll schedule for around 2 weeks from your expected due date. Once you and your baby are home safe and sound, please contact me immediately to let me know the wonderful news. I will work closely with you to find a day and time that works for everyone. I aim for about 2-3 weeks** after birth. I only accept 4 newborn sessions a month.

Addt’ly for maternity sessions: I recommend that mamas schedule their session at the beginning of the third trimester. Right around 30-35 weeks.

**Why do I book your newborn session 2-3 weeks after birth?

  • Family Comfort: Parents (and older siblings) are more relaxed and comfortable with their new routine.
  • Better Complexion: Babies have improved skin tones and fewer blemishes.
  • Established Feeding: Feeding routines are more stable, whether breastfeeding or bottle-feeding.
  • Flexible and Sleepy: Babies are still flexible and sleepy enough for beautiful poses.

Based on my experience booking 2-3 weeks after birth sets the stage for a smoother session and beautiful, serene images.

Yes, sunset light is beautiful. But overcast skies provide lovely even light and can add a layer of emotion, too. What’s most important to me is that I highlight your family’s loving connections; I want that to be the focus in your images. I will of course prioritize the best weather for your session, as my schedule allows. I will not reschedule for humidity, cloudy skies, wind, or rain earlier in the day. I will reschedule if it is actively raining/storming during your session. My Weather Policy
 

If I feel we need to reschedule your session, I will reach out to you by 2 pm EST on the day of your session.

Please reach out to me to reschedule if you or your kids are sick. As a mom as well, I want to prioritize my family’s health and protect my children from sickness too. Plus we don’t want to document you all looking sick in your pictures. Take time to get better, and we will absolutely make up your session.

I love spending time with my clients and providing galleries that highlight beautiful and emotional family moments. This happens much more naturally when we allow time and space for it during a full session. I do plan to offer very special mini session events a few times a year. I recommend signing up on my email list, so you can be first to know when these become available.

A multi- portrait session package, where you can commit to 2-4 photography sessions in an 18 month period, and save on session fees and/or collection costs. This option enables you to document various life moments or milestones with ease.

You can include a variety of sessions based on your exact family needs. Options include outdoor family, maternity, and newborn portraits, and lifestyle studio portraits.

All sessions included must be planned for and completed within 18 months of signing my contract.

Clients that commit to multiple sessions can save with a combined session fee, and discounts on each collection’s cost. The more sessions you book, the more you save, up to $600 compared to individual sessions!

No changes there! You still pay the same way as you would for my regular sessions. First, you’ll pay the session fee upfront, which is $400 for the Family Story Series. Then, when you get your gallery, you can buy each collection separately, in this case, at the discounted rate listed above.

Rescheduling must take into account my availability and should be completed within the 18-month timeframe. Last minute changes or cancellations may incur a fee. Feel free to contact me if you have any particular scheduling concerns; I’m more than happy to come up with a solution together.

I’m really glad you’re interested in sharing the bundle or gifting sessions to someone else. However, that is not an option I am offering at this time.

To make sure we can schedule everything within the 18 month timeframe, the maximum number of sessions you can include in a bundle is 4.
