more this way

I'm all about creating an experience that feels like a big, cozy hug from start to finish. Before we even pick up the camera, I make it my mission to connect with you on a personal level. Because to me, you're not just clients — you're family. And that bond doesn't end when the session does; I'll be your biggest cheerleader long after you've stepped away from my lens.

My ultimate goal? To evoke emotions that radiate warmth and authenticity, with lots of fun sprinkled in. Because when you see my photos, I want you to feel them — deeply, genuinely, and with all the joy in the world.

I'm SO excited you stopped by! I'm Emily, guac queen, girlie girl, and your new bff.
