let's get to know each other

My name is Tamra Erickson

I am a child of God, wife, mother and middle school science teacher who loves photography and people.

I have been taking pictures since I was in the 4th grade. I took my camera over to my friends house to take pictures of her roses. My dad said I was too close, but of course I didn't listen. I had to wait a week to get my pictures back from the store. I was so disappointed that they were blurry. Lesson learned! My parents bought me my first SLR before I backpacked around Europe, but I was too afraid to take it with me. I didn't want to damage it, so I took a point and shoot. I shot 40 rolls of film. This time I got some amazing shots. My husband and I used to go on photoshoots for dates and then the kids came. I continued to shoot pics. When they joined sports, things changed. My passion grew to a new level and I have had the pleasure of sharing photos with the players for years.
