Raves and Reviews
Erik is a true artist with a very easy-going personality. At no point did I feel even remotely uncomfortable. He and his makeup artist/assistant were nothing but professional and fun! By the end of the shoot I felt like a million bucks, and they worked with me to make sure every photo was PERFECT. –Emily H.
When I arrived on the day of the shoot, Erik (and Kerri Herlihy, who did my hair and makeup) kept me laughing and relaxed. He was never pushy about certain shots but did explain his reasoning for why he was looking for me to pose this way or that.then he showed me some raw images- WOW! He did the impossible with me, and in the process made me feel strong, pretty, and powerful. –Linda W.
My pictures still amaze me. Erik has an artistic eye that I think really captures the confidence and grace of the women being photographed. These are not just sexy pictures but I find really focus on the beauty and glamour of the individual. At least I felt that way about my photos. I could not be happier with the results and would highly recommend! –Liz B.
Kerri Herlihy is a Boston based makeup artist with almost 20 years of experience in the business, with work covering print, lifestyle and editorial, bridal, music, film and television. She has won several awards, has been featured in many fashion and bridal magazines, as well as online wedding and designers blogs. Her experience ranges from film and television, to corporate and music videos, cd covers, as well as runway, print, editorial and bridal.
The best part of being a beauty photographer is that I help women feel great about themselves. It’s amazing to me how empowered and confident clients are once they leave the studio. Any fears or concerns about themselves they had walking through the door completely vanish. It’s a transforming experience for them and for me. I studied photography at the New England School of Photography in Boston where I concentrated in environmental portraiture. For fun my wife and I like exploring Boston’s restaurants or checking out an indie movie. We make our home in the Melrose area with our new baby girl Kiera.
