A few images of the cutest little meatball on her half birthday 🙂 Baby Addy bright blue eyes and cheeky personality make photographing her so much fun. She is smiley and giggly, especially when her big brother Ethan makes funny noises.

"Emily made us feel (and look!) like true supermodels! With her humor, guidance, and enthusiasm our wedding photos are more than we could have hoped for."

- catherine

"She made us feel comfortable and like our best selves throughout. We couldn't have asked for anything more! Emily is poised, professional, super friendly, and you'll probably be best friends by the time the shoot is over. "

- alexis

"Her style is the perfect mix between documentary and fine art: she captured the real candid moments while also directing us into picture-perfect poses with an eye for the details. Plus, she is so sweet!"

- jessica M.

"She clearly has an intuitive talent that is rare in any field. Nothing compares to the professionalism, warmth, care, and instinct that Emily possesses. Her photos are gorgeous no matter what!"

- jessica S.

"She captured our happiness and gave us priceless memories from a day where we have so few! She is creative, super fun, and a joy to work with."


If you're looking for photography that is so much more than just gorgeous images, it's an experience that allows you to be fully present with the ones you love, you're in the right place.
