Santa Baby // Newborn session

Sometimes I am lucky enough to get asked to photograph a newborn.  These sessions can be a challenge because well, it’s a newborn and let’s be honest- They call the shots! This precious Santa Baby was patient and adorable as could be!

I’m excited to show the highlights from this session, Welcome Baby Brynn! Brynn arrived just before Thanksgiving and I got to meet her shortly after with her amazing family.

And, being that it’s the week of Christmas I thought this would be a very timely post!       

Happy Holidays!

A wild Trip out WEST // Recap

Hey There!

In mid March I had a photoshoot out in Los Angeles.  The trip lined up with my Husband and I’s first year wedding anniversary. So we made a big trip out of it.  I flew out to LA for my shoot and then we both met up the next weekend in Vegas! Here is a recap of our travels…

I flew into LA on March 9th to cover the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA.  Here is one of my favorite shots from the conference.

I had a free day to go explore and took my friends advice and spent the day in Long Beach.  Of course it rained all day, so I explored the Aquarium of the Pacific..

Around 6pm the rain cleared and a there was a beautiful sunset, I drove to the beach where I found this interesting car… or golf cart? Once I walked onto the beach I saw a few kite surfers, I had never seen kite surfing in real life, I was mezmorized!

 

The next day I flew to Las Vegas where I met Stephen (He flew from DC to meet me for our vacation.)

This was the only photo I took in Vegas with my real camera 🙂

After 3 nights in Vegas we rented a one way car and drove to the Hoover Damn, and on to the grand Canyon from there.

I think these girls took the day trip from vegas. You can’t really see it but there are posing with their selfie stick, on the edge of the canyon…

We spent the night at the Grand Canyon on the Hualapai Reservation.  This is a view of our cabins and the guests circling around the campfire.

The next morning we watched the sunrise and then got an early start on our drive to Joshua Tree, CA. Here’s a view from the middle of the Mohave Dessert. We also hopped on historic Rt. 66 for a few miles.

Joshua Tree

We spent the night in Joshua Tree and then headed to LA the next day.  We did the Santa Monica Pier at Sunset.

It might sound like we had a busy hectic trip with all the driving and flying but it really was relaxing. I got to recharge my batteries so to speak before the busy event and wedding season begins!

 

What’s the best trip you’ve been on recently?

The Family Wedding // Recap

About a year and half ago my mother-in-law who was newly engaged to her long time partner asked me if I would photograph the wedding. I was honored, and after much consideration I decided that I could do it.  I knew that it was going to be a challenge, after all- it’s family and they deserve the best!

The wedding was held at the Colonel Blackinton in Attleboro, MA. It was a seasonably warm November day, I was thrilled to be able to take portraits outside! The wedding had about 30 guests and was jam packed with details and sentiment. Everyone played a roll in making the day come together. Here is a recap of the day…Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography  Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography  Erika Nizborski Photography       Erika Nizborski Photography

A year in Review // 2015

One of the first words that comes to mind when I think about the past year is : WOW!

So here it is, the ENP year in pictures for 2015! Enjoy.

Pumpkins + Mums // Wedding Sneak Peek!

In honor of Thanksgiving which is just a day away, I wanted to share this Halloween Wedding I had the pleasure to document over at The Lodge at Little Seneca Creek.  Kristen and Daniel love the outdoors, so it only made sense that they bring some nature to their BIG DAY.  Their first look was down by the creek, the pumpkin and mum lined ceremony was over looking the beautiful fall skyline, and the reception was held in front of a grand hearth with a roaring fire.  Kristen and Daniel were surrounded by family and friends on their wedding day, several of the guest traveled great distances to attend, all the way from Peru! Here is a look….

ENP a year in review for 2014!

WOW 2014 was spectacular! This past year I had the privilege to work on 152 photoshoots. Ranging from engagements, weddings, babies, parties, corporate events, political lobby days, cycling, trade shows, high end productions, television production, a magazine cover, product shoots, architectural, and portraits.  I worked as a photographer, stylist, production assistant, lighting technician, and in one case a makeup artist.

In 2014 I not only grew my business but I also took on the role as Director of the DC Chapter of American Photographic Artists. In the spring I launched a new line of custom photo products, which are available to all of my clients.  In the gallery scene, I won best in show at the DC Exposed 2014 show at LongView Gallery in March.  In the month of September my photo collective, SliverCore Photographers had a group show at Gallery 1301 in Baltimore .  Then, I ended the year strong with my Hyattsville Project up on the walls at Green Owl Design.

I could’t be more grateful for the opportunity to participate in all of these things and to be able to live my dream each and every day! Thank you for all of you that make it possible for me.

Here are some photo highlights of my year…

Christmas Day Recap

Christmas 2014 was wonderful in the Nizborski-Spencer Household.  Steve and I hosted my Dad at our house yesterday.  We enjoyed listening to Christmas music all day along with each others company.  Despite the warm weather we were experiencing in the DC area, we ended the evening with a festive fire.

After a busy and productive year for me, I am finally enjoying some down time with my family and friends.  Frequent content packed posts will start after the New Year! Stay tuned…
