About Erika Dorie Dotson:

I reside in Madison County where I am a wife to my husband, TW, and mother to my puppy, Roxy, and a photographer to the people of Northwest Arkansas.

I figured if you are going to come hang out with me for a few hours or even spend your wedding day with me you might want to know what kind of person I am:

I am 23.
No children yet, but I would like to have 6 kids.
My ultimate favorite color is blue, royal blue to be exact.
I love my family.
I have a yellow lab that I adore.
I shoot a Canon camera.
I love Diet Mt. Dew.
I have played soccer since I was in the second grade.
I am alumni to the U of A with a Bachelor’s Degree in Food, Human Nutrition, and Hospitality.
I think Cinderella Man has got to be one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.
I am a Californian.
I love to get dolled up.
I teach a church class in the early morning hours (like before school ever starts!)

So everyone always asks how did you get into photography?

Answer: I always asked for cameras for Christmas and I always got those point and shoot cameras. It wasn’t until I was selected for my high school yearbook staff that I realized what more a camera could do. I served on the staff for two years and then off to college to major in photography. It wasn’t long before I decided that I didn’t want to pay to learn to do something I thought I could already do. I went and bought my first SLR and practiced, and practiced, and practiced some more. I served on the U of A yearbook staff as well before I graduated. In 2006 I decided to just go for it and stop using photography as just a hobby but rather as an income. We opened our studio in February of 2007. I have spent thousands of hours scouring professional forums and websites to master my craft. I have come a long way and will continue to climb.
