“I found Erin while doing online research for a wedding photographer. We hired her based on her online work and haven’t been sorry. In addition to bridal portraits, engagement photos, and our wedding photos, my husband have also hired Purpletree Studios to do our daughter’s newborn photos and more recently, family photos. Every experience has been positive and we are always delighted with the outcome. Would recommend Erin and Purpletree Studios to anyone in a heartbeat.”






“You’ve captured the crazy energy filled with love that is our house. I am in awe. Thank you.”







“I am absolutely overjoyed to share these precious photos. Thank you so much to our fabulous photographer, Erin Lance Vande Zande. It is sometimes difficult to articulate how much I adore my sweet baby girl and loving husband. I think these photos help express those feelings.”



“When we began our adoption application process, I already knew we were planning to use Purpletree Studios as our Red Thread Session Photographer, so we booked Erin to photograph a storytelling lifestyle family session for my husband and I to use in our adoption profile book. We were blown away with how she customized our session, and how fun, and true to life the photos were. Several months later, we were matched with and met our daughter– and it was so exciting to book our second session with Erin- this time with our little girl! Erin’s passion for storytelling photography and adoption shines through in both of our sessions with her- and we hope other families will book her for their pre-adoption portrait session as well!
