is beautiful



hi! i'm emilY

I’m Emily, and I’d love to get to know each other!
I believe every picture tells a story and everyone has a story to tell. I'd love to help you tell your story by capturing your moments from today and creating memories for a lifetime. 

Take a look around, and let me know if you have any questions along the way. 
I hope I have the chance to tell your story… because your story is beautiful!

I always want to remember how my kids looked on and felt at a certain special holiday… or just any ordinary day. I want pictures that tell the story of my family, how my husband feels when he hugs our daughter or the way we look at each other. I want our kids to have these heirlooms to pass down to their families as well. I want to freeze these moments with my kids, because they are fleeting and I don't want to forget.

When I see these images, I am temporarily transported to that day, that stage, that moment. Seeing pictures of my kids brings me pure joy, and I love to share that joy with others by offering photos that will bring life-long memories. So, whether it's a newborn session, an annual family portrait, a maternity or other special occasion in your life, I love to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing the moments have been captured well.

 As a mom of 4 sweet kiddos and wife to an amazing man, most days you can find me struggling to get my kids out the door on time and living in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I try my best to cherish the sweet, tender moments when everything seems to stop. We make time for hugs and kisses, we make time for "I'm sorry", and we definitely make time to have fun together! 

Let's get started!

do you ever feel like you wish you could freeze time? i know i do!

I look forward to getting to know you and capturing YOUR beautiful story!

"I loved our session. I bragged to many friends about how comfortable you made us feel and how good you were with my little girls. I have never been very comfortable in front of the camera, but the way you told me how to lean and stand put me at ease and I came back having really enjoyed myself. Also, I cannot manufacture the smiles you drew out of my children. You caught them how I want to remember them!"

"The information you gave us beforehand was so helpful - from choosing outfits to telling us what to expect. You were so sweet, patient and understanding with all of our kids even when they were being difficult! And I LOVED what you told us about posing… we can use those tips for pictures in the future! We loved our experience with you and hope to work with you again!"
- Mandy

"I am really enjoying looking through our daughter’s senior pictures! They turned out great. Thank you for all the time you spent with her to get the best shots and capture her personality. It will be very difficult to know which ones to enlarge because they are all so good."
- Michelle

"Emily is a natural--she engages each member of our family in a fun, authentic way, and the result are pictures that truly reflect each of us. After the session, my husband said ‘that was actually enjoyable!' That’s high praise considering he’s never enthusiastic about family pictures!"
- Jessica

My goal is to make Family Sessions as easy as possible. I'll set you up ahead of time so you come to the session feeling prepared and ready! I make our session as pleasant as possible by telling you exactly how to pose and try to make it as fun and relaxing for your family as I can. 

I especially enjoy capturing each senior’s individuality and character because I know these images often represent the student in a yearbook and serve as cherished memorabilia for friends and family.
We will visit up to 2 of your chosen locations and as many outfit changes as we can in the allotted time
