About Erin

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit more about me!

I'm Erin. My family and I moved to Victoria last summer after spending a few years as expats living in the Middle East. We loved experiencing a vastly different culture and meeting new people, but felt like it was time to make roots in Canada again. Although we’re originally from Ontario, we chose Victoria because my husband wanted to follow his dream of completing his PhD in Computer Science at UVic and now we are set on staying put in this perfect paradise!  

Since starting Erin Clayton Photography in 2012, I've had the honour of photographing hundreds of families from every part of the world and can proudly say that my photography journey has been a dream come true. 

Having children of my own has only deepened my love for photography. As a mom of a busy three year old girl and one year old boy, I know first-hand how crazy life can be and so many precious moments can go by all too quickly. This is why I believe in the beauty of photography and the need to capture these important and precious moments in your life for you to look back and remember these treasured times.


I’m the photographer who loves capturing joyful family images, who obsesses over every detail of your session - from finding an epic location with the most gorgeous light, to helping you pick the perfect outfits - who laughs along with your children, then helps you design the perfect wall gallery display of your favourite images for your incredible home. I would be honoured to tell your story!

I hope that you enjoy the images you see throughout my portfolio and would love to chat more about working with you and your family!
