Hi there....I'm Erin Silber, a family photographer based in Brooklyn, NY. As a mom of 2 growing boys, I know that life can get crazy fast...there's three schedules to manage (mine included), school drop-offs, class parties and field trips to attend, making delicious dinners for picky eaters, cleaning up after messes, making sure homework is complete and trying to get everyone to bed on time (especially me!). Every day blends into the next but I wouldn't have it any other way. Family is everything even with all the ups and downs.
For as long as I can remember, I have always tried to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. When I was 15, I signed up for my first black & white film photography class. I loved the whole process - framing the perfect image, developing the roll of film, cropping/burning and dodging my image to perfection on my photographic paper and witnessing my image magically appear when dipped into the developer and fixer solutions. For the next 4 years, I was hooked on this art form...eventually becoming my high school's yearbook photo editor. But as the years progressed, I got more and more practical and moved away from photography. In my 20s, I began my career in the TV industry but something never clicked - my heart was never in it. Along the way, I learned from someone that your true passion lies in whatever you were most interested in when you were a teenager. For me, that was photography. In my early 30s, I luckily returned to this passion when my best friend from high school gave birth to her second son, Abbott. A few hours after giving birth, I visited her in the hospital. I conveniently brought along my first digital camera; my intuition was strong. After capturing Abbott's very first moments, I rushed immediately home to edit. Every aspect of the experience thrilled me....warmly interacting with both mother and child, capturing so many tender moments of my best friend's growing family, artistically editing the images, revealing the loving portraits to her and witnessing her overjoyed reaction. Those first moments of Abbott's life are captured forever and both my friend and I are forever grateful for the experience. From that day forward, I was hooked again. That was my "ah-ha" moment...the start of my adventure in family photography.
Family photography is my first passion...I adore my clients and it brings me such joy when my clients showcase their family portraits around their home to enjoy every day. Most importantly, I love meeting new people and participating in memorable experiences. That's why, in recent years, I expanded my photography services to include empowering portraits of girls & women, high-profile events and professional headshots. Building connections to the people who pass through my life makes for a happy, fulfilling life. A meaningful life is my ultimate goal.
