The Fuller Family

Though it’s taken some time, I’ve finally learned to trust my instincts. I don’t exactly remember my first email exchange with Lori, but I know we connected over living in the San Francisco Bay Area (her currently, me formerly). We were both raising young children and trying to build our photography businesses at the same time. We were feeling the small victories and the unending challenges in the everyday. We had a lot in common. But we were both really busy so our communication was brief before we went back to our lives. My sense was that if we lived closer we would be great friends. I was right. Sort of.

In the year and a half since Lori and I first “met” in an online photographer’s forum we have quietly grown to be great friends, despite the distance. I’m not exactly sure how it happened (an email here, a phone call there, finally a lunch date when she was in SD visiting family), but I’m so grateful it did. Lori is an amazing person and phenomenal photographer (you can check out her work HERE) and I consider myself so lucky to call her my friend. When she asked me to photograph her family I was ecstatic! There is nothing more exciting (or nerve-wracking, to be honest) than photographing another photographer, especially someone you admire. It is an honor I can’t quite explain.

I don’t think we could’ve possibly fit any more fun into the time we spent together San Francisco! This is exactly the type of session that makes my heart happy…full of laughter, love, and pure joy. To say I’m happy with these photos would be a huge understatement. I adore them. Just like I adore the people in them. Lori and her beautiful family are beyond awesome and it was such a pleasure to create these memories with them. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

You’ve done a fantastic job!! I’m sure she’s more than pleased with them!

Erin, these photos are not only amazing because of your vision and artistic eye, but because they were taken at a significant place for us, in a city we love and at a park where we did our “first look” on our wedding. We love San Francisco and city life and the simple beauty that you can find around every corner…can you say brick walls?! :) I admit that while I have my bucket list of wishes (I wish I had lost those xx pounds I wanted to, I wish I had colored my hair, and oh don’t get me started on my signature tongue smile - I wish I remembered to NOT stick my tongue out!), I look at these images with such different eyes now. I guess you could say I see them through Aidan and Angelina’s eyes. To them they see our family being silly and fun and playful and just being together on an adventure. That is what they will remember, and so will I. Thanks, girlfriend for making it such a great day for all of us and for giving me the chance to actually be IN photos with my family. Love you!

I don’t even know what to say. Seriously.
These are incredible and I can really really feel the family’s life and love (and LAUGHTER!) in all of these, not to mention the ERIN laughter in there! I love them ALL, I can’t even pick a favorite! So real and lifestyle and fun! The ones of Lori and the kids all with their arms in the air like “YEAAHHYUHHH, rah!” made me giggle.

The cuddley laughy ones are fab too. Erin, these are gorgeous and you, my dear, are prospering more than you know. xo
