I'm a photographer providing honest & authentic images that tell the stories of your connection
Hi, I'm Emily

Goodness this family is WONDERFUL.  Stevi is a photographer herself and contacted me awhile back about doing family pictures for them.  They had never had “official” family photos and because Stevi is always behind the camera, she doesn’t have many photos that include her.  The last time she and her husband, Andrew, had photos taken was on their wedding day.  A little while later and BOOM!  We made it happen.  I feel so thankful that Stevi trusted me to photograph her family.  I always feel this way about every couple or family I photograph, but when it’s another photographer you’re taking pictures of, it’s a bit different.  Thank you, Stevi & Andrew.  So, so much.

Gahhh.  Gloria is so cute!  This girl has a rockin’ personality.  She’s bound to do great things.

There’s something about this next image that gives me goosebumps.  Maybe the reality of it.  Maybe the joy that radiates from Stevi’s face.  Maybe the fact that this is just so them–such a playful family.  Maybe the emotion.  I don’t know, but I love it. 

Could be my favorite picture of a family I’ve ever taken…

I loved this session so much.  Thank for you being so fun to work with, Stevi, Andrew, & Gloria!  I had a blast!
