We have used Emily for two sessions of family photos and have been over the moon with the results both times. Emily is incredibly talented and her photos are just beautiful. She was even able to provide us with numerous great shots of our family that includes a very antsy 1 year old! She is a pleasure to work with and we could not believe how quickly our photos were made available to us. We can’t wait to work with Emily again.

The Process


step one


Let’s get to know one another! First we’ll set up a time to meet and discuss your session. Once we’ve determined that we are a great fit, then we can proceed to booking and make it official!

step two


Next you will receive a custom online booking proposal and pay your session fee, and then we’ll schedule your date.

step three


Once your session is booked, we will meet for a pre-session consultation to talk about outfit choices, location, best time of day, and any other details.

step four


Within two weeks of your session you will receive an online gallery with the final images and a letter of print rights. From your gallery you will be able to download, order prints and share however you wish.


So what's Next?

Inquire for your preferred date



The information you provide will help determine if we are likely a great fit before moving forward. You can expect a response within 48 hours. I look forward to connecting with you soon!

Frequently Asked Questions



Do you include all of the edited images in your session fee?

Yes! I like to keep things simple.  I believe you should have access to all of the final edited images, after all they are your memories!

I have never been professionally photographed before, and am nervous about being in front of the camera. 

Not to worry! I will walk you through the posing from start to finish. All you have to do is show up, have fun, and leave the rest to me!

I’m not sure what to wear to my session? will you offer suggestions?

Yes! Once your session is booked, we will meet for a pre-session consultation either over the phone or in person.  During your consultation we will talk about outfit choices, location, best time of day, and any other details.  I want to make sure we get to know one another before your session, so that you can feel comfortable and have a great experience with me!

Do you have a studio?

If you prefer an indoor session, I offer the option of shooting at a studio as an add on to your package.  Shooting indoors is the best option for a midday session, when direct sunlight can be a bit harsh.  Outdoor locations are best for early morning or sunset sessions.

What if it rains, or if I need to reschedule?

If your session is scheduled at an outdoor location and there is inclement weather, we will reschedule at no additional charge. If you need to reschedule for any other reason, you may be responsible for a rescheduling fee.

How do I book a session with you?

Once you have decided that you are ready to move forward, we can begin the booking process. First I will send you a contract and invoice, which can be signed and paid online. I accept payment via check, debit and/or credit card. Once your session is paid in full, we will decide on a date.  Session dates are not reserved until the contract is signed and fee is paid.
