My name is Erica Kalinoski and I am a portrait + beyond photographer in Madison, Wisconsin where I live with my husband and our three children. I love meeting new people and creating great portraits with my clients through my business Out Loud Photography. To learn about me, keep reading and check out the personal section of my blog.
How I Became a Portrait Photographer
People find it easy to talk and open up to me, and that has overflowed into my photography – it’s an honor to have someone open up in front of my camera. Eight years ago I purchased my first professional camera and began capturing portraits of those around me. Over the years, I have gained experience in wedding photography, family portraits, high school senior portraits, maternity and newborn portraits, boudoir photography and business professional portraits. My absolute favorite work is creating high school senior portraits. Check out these featured High School Senior Portraits.
I don’t believe that great portraits just happen. A great portrait starts with a connection between a photographer and their client, a shared vision and combination of ideas. When you look at a portrait, it should leave you with a feeling. For a variety of recent Out Loud Photography portrait creations, visit my blog.
Random Facts About Me
My favorite movie of all time is The Godfather. I’m a coffee snob and I’m not even a little bit sorry about it. I firmly believe that everyone should laugh every day. I hate socks. The only area in my life where I am a perfectionist is my photo editing, otherwise I’m laid back, easy going and flexible. I really really really love food. I never tire of listening to bands and live music. My wardrobe is 80% second hand/thrifted and 0% scratchy.
