And I'm ready to begin the journey with you to preserve your memories. I believe in capturing real life moments and telling the story that is uniquely yours. As a mom myself, I understand the value of enjoyable sessions and pressing pause to make sure these fleeting moments are documented. I also have felt the overwhelm of having a digital gallery and not knowing what to do with my images. I am here to make your session effortless by helping you prepare for your session and turning your final images into beautiful heirloom artwork that is done for you and can be enjoyed by you every day in your home and passed on to future generations. 


"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!"

"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."

"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!"

As much as I think I will always remember how my kids looked and felt when they were younger, whether it was a special holiday or just any ordinary day, I know I will forget. That is why I am grateful for all the 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.
