how do I choose who is right for me?
What services and products do they offer?
First, ask yourself, what am I trying to achieve and what are the most important things to me? Here are a few things to consider...
Do you like the look and feel of their photographs?
Are they a professional, and will they make the process feel easy?
Show up, relax and have fun! Kids will be kids, and I don't expect them to be perfect, little angels the entire time. I have two sons and 17 nieces and nephews, so I get it.

There is truly no photographer that compares. She has a way of capturing the images that matter... the ones that truly give you all the feels. There is nothing posed about her photography; it all comes together so naturally. She has captured so many memories of my family throughout the years, and we look forward to many more!"

Emily is so patient, kind and thoughtful, and makes the sessions so much fun!!! It’s obvious that she LOVES what she’s doing!!!!”
"Emily is a true professional. She has photographed my family multiple times, and she always captures our personalities so perfectly! I love glancing over at our walls to catch glimpses of the photographs she taken throughout the years. I still smile at the memories she's caught of my precious family. She’s the best at truly catching my kids personalities in each photograph… not a fake smile. She captures them in their true state, whatever that looks like that day.
She has this way of connecting with children allowing them to open up and feel comfortable during a session. This of course makes for best pictures! Not only is Emily my favorite photographer, she’s an awesome person to get to know for a bit while she’s taking pictures. She truly slows down and takes her time, never leaving until she’s satisfied. You’re not just another number with her, and she makes the entire process enjoyable. She’s a hard worker and her passion is truly visible in her work. I always love seeing the magic she creates! "
"I have admired Emily's work since I stumbled across it back in 2010. I was incredibly grateful that I was able to hire her to photograph my wedding in 2011. Since then, Emily has photographed our family annually, and she's been there to watch us grow into a family of five. From our wedding day to our maternity and family sessions, she's be there every step of the way. Not only has Emily been trusted to photograph each and every milestone in our lives, she has become a wonderful lifelong friend along the way. "
"I absolutely loved my shoot with Emily! I've never felt so comfortable taking pictures as she helped me with every single pose. I couldn't be happier with the way my senior pictures turned out. Our session was so much fun, and I'm looking forward to scheduling another shoot in the near future."
