Meet Erika - Maternity & Newborn Baby Photographer and Owner
Resident "Peek-a-boo" expert and Maternity & Newborn Photographer - Erika's passion is photographing people. Author of “The Parent's Pocket Guide: Taking Kids and Family Photos” and workshop teacher, Erika loves sharing her expertise to de-mystify camera settings and help parents take better photos of their kids. Notably acclaimed for her photography, she landed an appearance on the Oprah show in 2007, and Daily Candy wrote a feature article about her talent of interacting with children to put them “in an authentically smiley mood” during their kids photo studio session. Fun facts about Erika: She has tea at 3pm every day, her first car was a 64’ Beetle, if she weren't a baby photographer she’d be a pastry chef, and her favorite shoes are a pair of cowboy boots.

Family posing expert and kiddy attention grabber, Leah's warm character brings out genuine smiles from both adults and kids! Fun facts about Leah: she was born and raised in a small town in Michigan, plays the ukulele, and is practically obsessed with anything ginger flavored.
Meet Natalie – Graphic Designer & Re-Toucher
If there is anyone in the office to become friends with – Natalie is the one! She is the one who makes all the magic of snotty noses, flyaway hairs, and double chins disappear. Originally from Texas, her sweet and laid back disposition keeps us calm when all the clients (and Erika!) need everything right now! Fun facts about Natalie: she named her dog after Axel Foley in Beverly Hills Cop, loves backwoods hiking & camping, and is the only one of the Pod Girls who has a tattoo of a camera.
Aside from maternity, newborn, babies and kids as well as family photography, Pod Photography also does video sessions that can create lasting memories you can relive over and over again. Want to get a feel for our work? See the extensive gallery available on our site.
