About Me

Hi, I’m Erika! I am the photographer behind Eurekame Photography. I am based out of Bismarck, North Dakota but call home Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (where I travel to numerous times a year to photograph). I often get asked if I will travel for sessions and heck YES I will!

Your probably wondering what exactly does Eurekame even mean…I came up with this playful fictional ‘dictionary’ like entry to explain:

1. authentic and real
2. playful and enduring
3. made with love

I often get asked how I got the name Eurekame. I combined my childhood nickname Eureka + the word me…because that’s me!

As far back as I can remember I have loved photography in some way or another. It started with my love of looking at old family albums, then my teenage artistic side took many avant-garde pictures of my cat (they are actually way cooler than it sounds), finally with the birth of my first kiddo I became obsessed with documenting ever phase of her life. The dream finally took off when people kept asking me to take pictures of their kiddos because they had seen the ones of mine. It has been a slow process over the last several years, I never thought I was ‘good’ enough to really put my work out there to be judged, but I am beyond those fears and my dreams are far bigger. So join me on this dream and have me capture your beautiful life.
