Welcome

some memories never leave your bones
like salt in the sea;
they become part of you

We believe that a mother’s love for her children and family is the most beautiful connection in this world. Our minimalistic style allows your bond to remain the focus of your images, free of distractions. Our clients believe that their images should live as artwork on their walls or in heirloom albums that can be passed down to their children. As one of the most desired photographers in Northeast Ohio, our team is dedicated to providing a truly seamless, unique, full service experience from start to finish for the families who choose us.

The Experience

learn more

Once your session is reserved, you'll have full access to our planning services. We'll start with an in-person consultation to discuss your vision for your session, the beautiful location options that we offer, the heirloom artwork that will be available to you after your session, and you'll also be able to try on items from our extensive curated Studio Wardrobe before your session date. I'll help you coordinate outfits for the rest of the family, too! Planning to wear your own clothing? No problem! You'll have access to our Pinterest board full of inspiration.

Step One

what's next?

The day of your session has arrived! Your day will be peaceful and relaxing; your (optional) professional hair and makeup artists have been coordinated by us and will come to your home a few hours before your session. After finishing up, you'll arrive at the studio or our chosen location and your Studio Wardrobe items will be steamed and ready for dressing. Our organic posing style allows for natural interactions, hugs, kisses, and tickle parties to keep your little ones interested. We have a full array of snacks, beverages, and a children's play area to keep everyone happy.

Step Two

after your session

Within a few days after your session, you'll receive a glimpse of your session on social media. Within 2 weeks, your images will be edited and ready for viewing! We'll set a date to meet back at the studio for your Design & Ordering appointment. You'll view your images as beautiful prints, make stacks of your favorites, and we will help guide you through choosing the best artwork or digital files for your home. At this appointment, your order will be finalized so it's best to have all decision makers present!

Step Three

start over

Over the years, we have perfected the locations that are offered to clients so that we have the beautiful backdrop and dreamy soft lighting that you see in our portfolio.

Our clients have three location choices; the field, the beach, or the studio. Our all white, natural light studio offers a gorgeous backdrop for your maternity, newborn, baby, and young family sessions year-round with all of the comforts and coziness of an in-home lifestyle session. The studio is located in Akron, conveniently accessed from Cleveland, Canton, Fairlawn, Medina, Wooster, and beyond.

The field and beach locations are available at sunset for maternity, baby, and all family sessions between May and October.

The Studio

One of the biggest advantages of reserving your session with us, is exclusive access to our studio. In cases of inclement weather or during the winter months, you can still have light and airy portraits

Studio Wardrobe

Curated, Photogenic, Hassle Free

As part of your session experience, all of our clients have exclusive access to the Studio Wardrobe. We offer clothing for mamas (size 0-16), shirts for dads (size S-XL), and children's clothing from birth through age 5. This saves you a ton of money that you would inevitably spend on finding the perfect outfits, not to mention the time and energy spent shopping and making returns, and also ensures that your wardrobe selections will add to the beauty of your images. The wardrobe is completely optional, however most clients choose to borrow once they have seen our selection. All clients will receive personalized wardrobe planning services, even if they choose not to borrow.

The Erin Davison Photography Gift Registry is a wonderful way to let your family and friends know that you would love a gift that is heartfelt, meaningful, and will never be outgrown to welcome your newest family member. You will receive complimentary cards to send out with your baby shower invitations, letting your guests know that you are registered with Erin Davison Photography. Gift Certificates can be purchased in any amount and applied towards session fees, heirloom artwork, digital files, or guests can choose from your three most desired artwork choices. Your guests will receive a beautifully printed gift certificate to present to you at your baby shower, or to be mailed directly to you. 

Gift Registry

the most perfect gift is the ability to preserve every small detail of your little one

Whether you're hoping to fill your home with heirloom artwork that you can pass down to your children or just the digital files for now, you will receive a luxurious full service experience.

After your session, we will meet again for your design and ordering appointment with your printed proofs. You will be able to choose your favorites, and together we will select the perfect artwork options for your family.  There is no minimum purchase;

REMEMBERING ALL OF THE GIGGLES, SNUGGLES, AND MOVEMENT

We loved working with Erin for our maternity photos!! She did such a wonderful job communicating with us and making the shoot so easy and natural. She has a beautiful studio, a perfect outdoor location, and the most amazing studio wardrobe!! We love how natural her portraits are and how the colors are soft and neutral. 

Romeo + Paige

We had a really great experience working with Erin! I searched for awhile for a photographer in Cleveland that I wanted to use and as soon as I saw Erin's pictures I knew that's who I wanted to go with. She did not disappoint, the pictures came out beautifully!

The Wolkoff Family

Erin is wonderful to work with and her photos are breathtaking! Erin was able to provide outdoor suggestions for my maternity shoot and wardrobe options for my newborn shoot which made the process that much smoother. I am so happy I chose her, she perfectly captured these beautiful memories!

Jordan + Erin

Erin took maternity photos for my husband and I. They turned out beautiful. I really appreciated her studio wardrobe so I didn’t have to worry about finding and buying a dress I would probably only wear one or two times. I highly recommend Erin Davison Photography!

Bryan + Elizabeth

Erin has done our family portraits for a few years now and we LOVE them every single time! She creates beautiful images that are so timeless. We can't wait for our next session with her this year!

The Cannon Family

Erin Davison Photography is the best and did an amazing, amazing, amazing job of capturing our family. Not only that, but her and her assistant Kelly were SO GOOD with Jaxon (aka the shyest kid in existence). I’m so thankful I found her!

IS WARDROBE INCLUDED?

Frequent questions

After nearly a decade of working with families, we have found that many of you share common questions. We're happy to share more information.

Yes, and we have so many beautiful options! We have clothing for mamas (sizes 0-14), shirts for Dad (small-XL), and adorable outfits for kiddos (ages 0MO-5yrs). You will have the opportunity to try options on during your planning consultation, or view and favorite items online through a private wardrobe link.


We offer both digital and film photography, depending on the type of session, the location, and lighting. We do not always shoot film during every session, but when we do, we always shoot digitally as well. We love the way that film captures movement and light, and there is just something so magical about it! If the conditions are right, you can expect to see a roll of film or two!

Hair and makeup is an additional charge (paid directly to the stylist). Hair and makeup with our preferred stylists ranges from $175-250 depending on the services and stylist available. We are happy to coordinate this service on your behalf. We also have created Idea Boards full of hair styles and makeup looks that photograph best with our photography style!


After your session, we will meet back at the studio where you will have the chance to view your images for the first time in print. We will help guide you in narrowing down your favorites, and help you choose artwork or files that suites your family best. This service is part of what makes us so special! We love offering a full service experience so that you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your beautiful artwork - without doing any of the work. All decision makers should be present for this appointment, as your order will be finalized at this time. If it's not possible for all to attend, please be sure to discuss your budget thoroughly before your appointment.


The design and ordering appointment is an integral part of our experience, and part of what makes us different than other photographers! Over the years, we have found that it is usually significantly easier and more enjoyable for our clients to return to the studio to choose their products with our assistance. However, we know that scheduling can be difficult for clients who live over an hour away or have other extenuating circumstances. For this reason, we do offer an all-inclusive digital collection and online galleries upon request. All clients receive online galleries after their ordering appointments, as well. 


As soon as you know that you would like us to be your photographer, we recommend getting on the schedule! Maternity sessions are typically held between 28-34 weeks pregnant. Newborn sessions are typically completed within the first 21 days of life, on weekday mornings. Maternity and Newborn sessions should be booked early in pregnancy to ensure availability. Sitter sessions are held when your baby can sit unassisted; usually around 6-8 months, but varies for each baby. We recommend scheduling family portraits yearly, 2-3+ months in advance.


When you reserve your newborn session (recommended at 12 weeks of pregnancy), you will reserve a date for the week following your due date. More often than not, this date ends up working out just fine. However, because all babies and births are different, this date may change once your baby arrives. We ask that notify us of your baby's arrival within 24 hours (a quick text from a family member or friend is fine) and if we need to make any adjustments to our scheduled date, we'll do so at that time.

The session fee does not include any digital file or artwork. We know we do things differently than most photographers, and we feel that's part of what makes our experience so special! Your session fee includes your experience with us; our planning services, a consultation if you desire, access to our Studio Wardrobe (over 150 items for mamas, dads, and kiddos!), our exclusive natural light studio, your session time and the editing of your images, and your design and ordering appointment. At your design and ordering appointment, you'll view your images in print and we'll help guide you through selecting the perfect artwork options or digital files for your family.

Our hope for your family is that the artwork we create will live on your walls or in an album as a finished product, but we know that some clients prefer having just the digital files. The digital files can be purchased on their own, or can be earned by purchasing artwork - the best of both worlds!

Yes! We love watching families grow over the years and documenting all of the most precious milestones for them in a cohesive way. We offer memberships for clients who choose to schedule two or more sessions. 

We do! Once a year around Mothers Day, we host an annual event called The Motherhood Collective to document mamas with their babies. These can be purchased by anyone to gift to a mother. We also occasionally offer Santa mini sessions in the Fall, or other special events. The best way to be notified of these special events is to sign up for the email list!

If you have any questions or would just like to chat, we're here for you. We can't wait to begin planning a beautiful portrait session with you and your family, and creating heirloom artwork that you can lovingly display in your home, and your children's homes, for many years to come.
