About Erika Deer Photographer

Erika Deer Photographer brings professional studio photography to downtown Westwood. Specializing in Children, Families, Newborns, Pets, Maternity, and Weddings, we'll give you the portraits you'd be proud to hang in your house for years to come. Having a professional photographer for a father meant always being in front of the camera. Little did I know that years later my true passion would lie behind it. I always knew that my father had impressed upon me the love of photography but it wasn’t until I had my son Shane that I truly realized in my heart how much a part of me it is. I believe that capturing even ordinary moments is priceless for generations to come. I am so grateful I have the opportunity to share this gift. Many years prior to my Dad’s stroke, he had several apprentices, one of which was Craig Michael. We have stayed in touch and when the opportunity arose to open a studio in the exact location that my father had worked for so many years, Craig generously offered to pass on to me the knowledge that he had once learned from my Dad. I also look forward to continue learning all that I can from my father, although difficult due to his aphasia. My father is such an inspiration and I can only hope to make him proud.

I've had the opportunity to use the services of Erika Deer both in her studio and for my Daughter's Wedding. Erika and her staff provide for such a wonderful experience I couldn't have been happier. We first went to her studio for pictures of my grandson, after seeing the results of that trip, I had to book her for the wedding. Her dedication to the event and the final product are obvious. I definitely recommend her!!!
