At Home With Artist, Photographer, & Mother Of 2 Erika Layne

Photography by Erika Layne

We first met today’s subject, Erika Layne, through her work behind the camera (you might recall her beautiful photos of Alex Elle and Christine Platt). But today, the Silver Spring, Maryland-based mother of two (Camden, 15, and Jayda, 9) steps in front of the lens to tell her own story. And we’re sure glad she did. Not only did we get a look at Erika’s relaxed digs that are surrounded by lush nature (an ideal spot to shelter in place), we also got to go one-on-one with the creative about parenting tweens and teens, a recent separation with her children’s father, her ethos when it comes to documenting others, and her new biz, Loupe and Grain, amongst other things. We suggest you grab a cup of tea, settle in, and enjoy!
