Design Your Perfect Session

I actually love some photos I'm in, probably for the first time.

Emily was amazing to work with! She is personable, kind, helpful, thoughtful and quite talented! I am really uncomfortable in front of the camera. I rarely like any pictures of myself. She was able to capture natural expressions and I actually love some photos I'm in, probably for the first time.

My simple, stress-free process

Three steps to heirloom photos

She made us feel so comfortable which allowed her to capture some really amazing shots of us. 

Emily is laid back and is very easy to work with! She made us feel so comfortable which allowed her to capture some really amazing shots of us. The turnaround time for sneak peeks was very quick and the full set was sent not even two weeks later! We absolutely adore our photos and can't wait to print and share them with our families. Emily is amazing at what she does and we highly recommend her to ANYONE looking for a photographer in the SF area!
