Ericka McConnell was born in Berkeley, California. She got her first camera at age 13 and immediately began documenting her girlfriends playing dress up.
It wasn't long before she discovered a real passion for looking through the lens.
She continued playing, studying and honing her art in Berkeley, Oregon, Florence Italy, and, finally, in New York, where she lived and worked for 15 years.
It was in New York that she started shooting professionally. Assignments took her around the world but there was something about her colorful, light filled images that always reflected a bit of her California childhood.
After her daughter was born, she moved back to the Pacific coast. She and her family now live in the San Francisco Bay area, but assignments take her back to New York often enough to preserve her edge.
Ericka's images are known for their wonderful sense of light, color and beauty. They have a laid back quality that is a direct result of her own warmth and ease. She has a way of making her subjects look and feel relaxed, a talent that translates into photos that feel inviting, relatable and touched with just the right amount of fantasy.
