"We hired Emma for a lifestyle photoshoot featuring two girls in our swimwear. Without a doubt, she is one of the best photographers we've worked with and we'd highly recommend her to anyone.  She is incredibly personable, easy to work with, and her high energy was perfect for the kids! She immediately grasped the style and feel we wanted for the photoshoot, needed little to no direction from us, and delivered beautiful photos in less than a week.  We absolutely LOVE her!"  Kyong, Seasalt Kids

“When we hire someone to take family photos it's with the goal of remembering what life looks and feels like right now. Kids don't keep and we never know what the next year will bring. That being said, we look for a photographer who can do more than place us in set "poses" - we want someone with an eye to capture our day-to-day craziness in a documentary way. 


Emma is that photographer! She takes pictures that are honest, moving and timeless. And she edits the photos naturally in a way that will still look good 20 years from now. 

Let's be honest, as parents lining up family photos feels like another thing to add to our forever long to-do list. And with camera equipment becoming more affordable, there is a lot of mediocre photography out there. Save yourself the time and just hire Emma already! She’s professional, easy to get along with, amazing at what she does. Bonus: She doesn't make you feel self-conscious if you're sweating or your kids are grumpy - instead she makes something beautiful out of the chaos.”  Renee, in-home family session
