Growing up with a Dad who was a photographer meant always having a camera around. I am blessed with boxes and boxes of prints from my youth that are invaluable to me and my family. After having my son in 2008, I realized my true passion for photography and the following year opened my studio, Erika Deer Photographer, in the same location my Dad had his for nearly 30 years. Unfortunately a massive stroke in 1997 robbed me of learning the ropes from the infamous Jean Deer himself, but I know it is in my blood and while he cannot speak due to aphasia, he is still with us and cheering me on! I let go of the studio 5 years ago to do all my work on location. I feel it provides me the creative element I love and there is nothing better than working outside on a beautifully overcast day! ⛅️
Photography has evolved so much just in these last 10 years and I have structured my business to my needs and those of my clients. I offer full and mini sessions anytime of the year giving you all the edited, full resolution images and copyright. Simple. 📷
My love of sports has also drawn me to sports photography. I have been lucky to gain the trust of several local sports organizations to do their annual photos. Please reach out if you are interested in having us for your town's teams. We do not require a multi-year contract as most others do as we prefer to be your vendor year after year due to the satisfaction of our work. ⚽️🏀🏈⚾️🎾🏐
My other career is in real estate. 🏡 🏫 I have had my license for the past 6 years and am excited that my office now has a branch in my hometown. Having lived in Westwood my whole life, I am very familiar with the market here, throughout the Pascack Valley, and Bergen County. I truly love connecting with people and finding that perfect property for their needs, or being given the honor of selling one of their biggest assets.
