Erica Lea


My name is Erica Lea. I love capturing pretty pictures and making my home lovely with simple crafts.

In the spring of 2011, I married the love of my life, Reuben. We had our little girlie, Helen, on February 13, 2013!

Photography is one of my biggest passions. I love to capture a special moment that will be remembered by the subject. I’m still learning this art, and love to read photography books and look at other people’s work to get inspiration.

I also enjoy cooking a good meal for my family. Stop by my cooking blog to learn more!
Other interests include sewing, fiber arts, drawing, physical health, and various sports.

Finally, I love my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and hope to serve Him and bring glory to Him in my work.

The Photography on Simple Days

The camera I use is the wonderful Nikon D7000. I currently have two lenses: a 50mm 1.8 and a 28mm 2.8. All photos prior to fall 2011 were taken with the Nikon D80 and either an 18-135mm zoom or a 50mm prime.

You may use my photos on your blog or website as long as you ask first and link back to the post or my blog. All unauthorized reproduction of my photos is prohibited.
