Luminous documentary of motherhood and family



It is raw and it is beautiful. It is early mornings and late nights. It is not knowing how it is possible to give any more of yourself away, and every day finding more love in the deep well that is a parent's heart. These moments pass so quickly - from tiny toes to big laughs to the first day of school in the blink of an eye. 

I want to capture these moments for you - because no season of motherhood will ever be perfect, but each one is as magical as it is fleeting. As a mother myself, I know the importance of the tiny baby photos you look back on tearfully when they begin to walk, or the photos of joyful days together that will always be the proof that we were here, we loved each other fiercely, and we created a home. If you're looking for photography that captures the heart and soul of your family in images that are both beautiful and true, let's talk.

because once in a lifetime moments happen                   



Your family is warm, fun, and full of life, and your photo session should be too! Kids have a hard time sitting still for photos, and really - why would we ask them to? My approach to family portrait sessions is relaxed and organic, allowing your family to interact naturally for portraits that capture your unique bond.

Becoming a mother looks different for everyone, but the beauty of it is universal. Whether this is your first babe or your tenth, your pregnancy deserves to be celebrated. Before you know it, that baby bump will be bundled up in your arms, and your whole heart will be living outside of your body.

The days (and nights) may go slowly by, but trust me, that first year simply flies. Those hazy, sleepy days after you first bring your babe into the world are nothing short of magical.  You don't need a clean house or a perfect 'post baby' body for beautiful newborn photos. All you need is love, connection, and a little bit of trust. Know that you'll receive a mother's touch in working with you and your new babe in these delicate days, and a mother's eye for the moments that really matter.

My approach is relaxed and family-focused - I know what it's like to be a new mama! We'll take plenty of breaks for inevitable diaper changes, nursing sessions, and fussiness, while ensuring beautiful images of whole-family interaction. 

Let's capture the way your little one's toothless smile lights up with joy. Let's celebrate the only time the extended crew will be together this year. Family sessions are for big milestones and for small moments, for love and connection and remembering. Natural, relaxed, and dare we say FUN, family sessions focus on whole family interaction and real moments so that your photos reflect your family's spirit and soul.

Emi is truly a master of her craft, and has a very unique style that is not easy to emulate. She understands her clients' desires at a very deep level, and goes the extra mile help achieve them.

Emi is nothing short of amazing! She instantly makes you feel like a friend. She was wonderful with my son, and captured beautiful photos that we'll cherish forever. We already booked her again for our fall family photos!

Emi was an inspiration! Our photography was a great experience, full of playfulness and ease. You couldn't ask for a more comfortable person to be with to capture your bond.

​What I love is that her photos don't have the forced feel that some newborn photos have. They're just beautiful, relaxed portraits of the love we just brought home. Have Emi take your family's newborn photos! She took beautiful photos of our newborn son and made us look and feel great even though I was only a few days out of the hospital.

​Emi is fun and energetic with kids, and has a way of making you feel comfortable! Working with Emi was the best. She managed to take amazing photos of our three kids, who all have a lot of energy! She really captured our family's energy, and these photos are going to be real keepsakes as our kids grow up.

Emi was professional, kind, excited, organized, creative so patient with our little ones.She was wonderful to work with! As we all know, young kids can be unpredictable, especially during new situations, but Emi just went with the flow and worked around the chaos...and we couldn't believe the beautiful photos that she captured!

Emi was so wonderful with our boys, and made the experience flawless and easy. Thank you Emi for these beautiful photos of our new family of four! We had such a fun time. I can't wait to hang these photos in our home and remember these memories forever.
