Wife. Mother. Sister. Friend. Artist. Photographer. Designer.
Hi! I’m Erica Carter!
I am a wife, a momma bear to two great kids and a crazy aunt to six. I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and a friend. I design, shoot, and paint.
I grew up in Chapin, South Carolina on Lake Murray, which means I could float in the water all day, listen to country music until bedtime, and wear sunscreen as perfume. I have a love for Edisto Beach, salty air, and sandy toes. Sweet tea is my chosen beverage and chips are a must in the house.
I am a graduate of Winthrop University with a BFA in Graphic Communications/Graphic Design. I designed for a fishing company for several years before I realized I wanted something a little different. I’m a multi-tasker… I need to do laundry while I edit, grocery shop while I plan, and be creative when I want. Let’s face it… I’m an artist and a mom… I need all the time in the day I can get.
I currently reside in Chester, South Carolina where my husband raises beef cows. We love listening to music while rocking on the front porch and watching the sun set. We keep life as simple as we can.
I’ve had a love for photography since I was a kid.
I started shooting as a hobby to document my family and friends. When that sweet handsome little boy of mine came into this world in 2010, I knew I had to take photography further. I began to understand that time really does fly. I wanted to capture the little moments and let time stand still.
I am a dreamer.
And the flexibility that this business has given me has been amazing. My real life is chaotic. Every day is different. Between kids, schools, and work, I’m thankful to make it through the day alive.
I understand nap times and snack times. I understand sick kids and messy outfits. I go with the flow and let the moments happen. Because after all, it’s real life… and that’s what I’m here to capture: your real life.
