Inspired by the beauty of nature, the transition of a woman into motherhood, the wonders & curiosity of childhood, and the joys & challenges of family life, Emily creates photographs from a deep, soulful place rooted in connection and presence.

a unique approach 

We're taking the traditional family photo experience and flipping it upside down. We're letting go of bribing the kids to follow directions for an hour. Letting go of saying cheese, wearing uncomfortable clothing that doesn't represent your true self (same goes for the kids), and posing or engaging with your family in ways you never would in real life. 

Instead, we're creating space for play, deep emotions - even the big, wild ones, and seeing the good. We're creating space for curiosity to take the lead. We'll follow along. We're creating space for messy creativity. We're creating space for vulnerability, trust, and openness.  

I can't wait to meet you there.
