Hello!  I am Erin Young!

Recognized as one of the most respected and superior photography studios in Rochester, MN.  Erin is fortunate enough to cover some of the cutest babies, finest families, corporate events, and senior portraits. She takes extreme pride in her work and cares deeply about her clients in making sure her images, products and services are superior in quality. You can be rest assured when you hire Erin, that your session will run smoothly and your images will be beautiful. She started the business 20 years ago after graduating from college with a degree in Graphic Design. Erin is accredited as a Certified Professional Photographer from PPA and has also earned her Photographic Craftsman Degree.

There's a last time for everything, and before you know it they are off to college. 

So choose your photographer carefully. 

Choosing me for your portrait needs guarantees that you are working with a certified professional photographer. I take my business seriously and will walk you every step of choosing the best prints for your home and gifts. I am happy to offer free in-home consultations for wall art designs. Creating mock-ups of how your art will look in your home.  I also offer free style consults to make sure you are dressed well for your session.

I dare you to compare. Schedule a complimentary studio tour with me.

Then visit some other studios. I am confident you will choose me to capture this important time in your life.

My portraits are not for everyone, and I get that.  But they are for those looking for the best. 


The world of professional photography keeps changing. I am dedicated to bringing you not only the finest portraits, but also keeping up on the latest and greatest looks so you are not stuck with boring photos. Milestone portraits are important and should only be trusted to someone that knows how to make you look your best. By someone who has mastered lighting, posing and the art of portraits. A photographer that pays attention to the details and produces the highest quality prints that will grace your walls for decades.

If you are looking for a USB drive of images to print online, that simply is not me or my business.

If your goal is to just document this time and be "good enough”, then I am overkill.

I am about quality over quantity. By limiting the number of clients I book, I can focus on the needs of each one and in a timely manner. I am producing images that are the best I have made in my 20+ year career. 

Please call me at 507-281-1596 and schedule a studio tour to find out that I am the perfect photographer.

My clients come from all over including Byron, Pine Island, Stewartville, Plainview, Elgin,  and many local areas, even drawing clients from out of state to enjoy my experience and quality.
