They say family is where the heart is. And for me, my heart is in family photos- particularly your family photos. I love running around playing peek-a-boo with your toddler to get their real smile, and coming up with games to keep your older kids laughing. Whether you are in Denver, CO or one of the many areas I travel to frequently like Tampa, FL, Washington, DC,  Delaware and beyond, I can't wait to capture your love!

Take a peek at some of my favorite family moments here, and then find out more about sessions below.

everything family

denver family photography

She has been photographing our family for almost 10 years and we have loved all our sessions (started with our engagement photos .. then wedding .. then newborns and now yearly family photos). Erin has always been so professional and makes us feel comfortable in front of the camera. One of her best qualities is she is always so kind and patient with our kiddos!! We will continue to use her for years to come.

we love erin!"

"Erin is the best hands down!


Erin makes family portraits EASY and you end up with AMAZING pictures to cherish forever! We have 4 young boys and I need all the help I can get. She helped me with outfits and even helped me lug my things around. She has clever ways to get smiles... she's the bee's knees! We love our sessions with Erin!

she's the bees knees!"

"She has clever ways to get smiles,


Erin did a great job capturing our family's personality in a fun and playful way that helped us *try to forget there was a camera around. We got great photos, creatively posed, creatively captured and will be wonderful memories for us to reflect upon in the future.

"Erin did a great job


I heard about Erin from a friend when she came to Tampa. She helped with what to wear and location and somehow managed to capture beautiful images of our crazy toddlers. Don’t miss her photos with Santa around the holidays either. We happened to be in Denver for Thanksgiving and were able to get one of the time slots. These were my most favorite photos of all time. The toddlers were all scared of Santa and throwing temper tantrums, yet she magically got the best photos ever.

her knowledge, calming presence & helpful direction"

"We were totally blown away by


yes! this is us, we're in!

sunrise or sunset family sessions are perfect for families who...

it's a match!

want to capture fun, joyful, genuine time together with each other to document the life you are building as a family and create a legacy of imagery that represents your family honestly.

are up for a good time! Hiking a mountain trail, playing a games, having a picnic, grabbing an ice cream cone or even jumping in your backyard pool- these are all parts of an ELP family session!

LOVE snuggling, cuddling, hugging, smooching and loving on each other! 

are ready to PLAY! Games, piggyback rides, tickles, flying high, and just having a great time. 

are relaxed, easy going and flexible when need be.

are open to style and session guidance for a successful session! 

Sunrise and Sunset Sessions are generally conducted outdoors just after sunrise, or just before sunset for optimal lighting conditions, and times vary throughout the year. However, for a super personal feel, consider booking a session at your home, where we can really capture your family in your own environment! I always love hearing your location ideas and discovering new spots, but if you need help, I have a complete location guide to help out upon booking! Several spots do require permits and sometimes additional fees may apply, so advance planning is key and I encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment. For location ideas outside of Colorado, please get in touch. The sky is the limit!

My biggest goal for your session is for you to walk away with photos that showcase the bonds that tie your family together. I will always aim to get you the mantle piece photo somewhere in your session, but I'm willing to bet the photos you end up loving the most (and the ones that make my heart sing) are the ones where moms are snuggling their boys, or dads are spinning their girls dizzy. We will laugh, play games, tickle, run, twirl, and get a little silly! If I am lucky, your kids will either beg for the session to continue or forget I am there, both because they are having so much fun!

it's all about connection

where should we meet?

That love is all-inclusive, or it's not love. It is my honor to document love and family in all ways, shapes, sizes and colors. I support clients of all walks of life, gender identities, ethnicities, races, and sexual orientations. I adore photographing the wide array of personalities and people that come before my lens and welcome diversity in all its forms.

golden hour sunrise + sunset sessions

session info

My favorite thing to do is capture you having the best time together. Laughing, snuggling, playing, and generally being goofballs. I love watching you play games with the kids and hug them tight. At some point during the session we'll stop smile for the camera- 'the mantle piece photo' I call it, but for the most part, I want to capture how you interact. If you are looking for an hour of stiff posing and staring, this isn't it. 

Sessions are for immediate family only, and are scheduled just before sunset or just after sunrise - trust me, it's worth the bedtime and dinnertime adjustment this once!

Mini's give you just a small taste of the Erin Lassahn Photography experience and are generally tailored for a specific holiday or theme- perfect for keeping things fresh in between full family sessions.

In order to make these sessions possible they are only offered on select dates and locations throughout the year. Check the Schedule to see if I am currently offering any mini sessions.

Anywhere you want me to! In my 15 years of experience, I have photographed families and couples all over the globe, including France, Austria, Mexico, California, Florida, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Washington DC, Texas, Michigan, Kentucky and more. Geography isn't a barrier for me, it's a motivator! Do you live outside of Colorado and want a session? Just get in touch!

Getting my photo taken isn't always easy for me, and lord knows my own two boys aren't always easy subjects. Worry not though, my sessions are all about natural connection, and I provide lots of guidance both before and during to help! Here's some bitesize truth- the recipe for success is to just relax and have fun! The best images come from happy people; adults and kids alike.

I take time to hand edit every image in your gallery, as showing up to your session and clicking the shutter is only part of what I do. Image galleries are typically delivered two to three weeks from your session date unless otherwise noted.

I don't love saying no, but I only work with immediate families. My style relies on close connection, play, and intimate moments and I tend to find that the larger the group the less we are able to create the kinds of images that likely brought you to my work in the first place. For extended family requests I will happily refer you to other talented photographers!

Schedule a session

You hear it all the time. 'They grow up too fast.' You say it yourself, you watch it happen right before your eyes.  As parents we wish we could slow down time, and cherish each little giggle, every funny moment. While there is no pause button on life, we can document and record each stage, and create tangible artwork to pass down the generations. I am here to help you hold on to these precious memories and never let them go. 

10 years? how about 20?

what will these memories
be worth to you 5 years
down the line?
