Testimonials

When you decide to take photos of your newborn, you are looking for more than just a great pose, you are looking for a moment to be captured that expresses your heart and the love you have for this precious miracle - and that is Emily’s gift. Her calm, her talent, and her vision took an ordinary afternoon and made it into one of our earliest memories of seeing our daughter’s affectionate personality. In our session Emily captured the love, joy, beauty and promise we see in Victoria. When we look back at our album we get to revisit that special moment again and again.

Where to begin?! I can’t thank Emily *enough* for so enchantingly capturing the most beautiful day of our relationship thus far. After going above and beyond in a pre-planning walk-through with Andrew, they decided she would secretly capture the big moment on a Central Park overlook FROM INSIDE THE BUSHES (this woman is committed to the shot, people). She and her husband Gardner took care to clear the area before we arrived, and after the “YES!” they waltzed us all around the park for celebratory photos. They’re the easiest people to be around. Emily communicates like the pro that she is for the entirety of the process and above all this she brings such a spirit of peace. I had always dreamt of this magical day, but being able to look back on it with Emily’s glorious images of joy and whimsy is something else. She so perfectly captured us in the city we love. I can’t wait to make a home here with Andrew, where we will display these special photos for years to come.

I’m so glad we worked with Emily for our wedding. I hadn’t considered how it would feel to invite a stranger into the mix for such an intense and emotional moment. Trust me - Emily is the stranger you want to have there! She brought such joy and reverence to the event, but also had a beautiful way of diffusing nerves with her adaptability, sense of humor, and “rooting for you” spirit. Her work is just stunning. My husband and I are not “photo people” and had no interest in airbrushed, staged shots for Instagram. Emily captured the tone and essence of the day in such a genuine way. We feel it really looks like us (okay, maybe a LITTLE better than normal “us”...but still us!). We revisit our elopement photos all the time because they truly take us back. We can’t recommend her more highly!

Emily is the best! We hired her for a family session and could not be happier with the experience and the final photos. She spent so much time before the shoot scouting the location at the time of day we would be meeting to get the best light. Our daughter was 5 and son was 8 months at the time of the shoot and she captured both of their personalities so perfectly. She was warm, thoughtful, patient, professional, and just a joy to be with for a couple hours on a Saturday afternoon. She listened to all of our desires for what we wanted to see and got to know us well enough to capture shots we never would have thought of but are now some of our favorites. Emily was a dream to work with. She's a gifted photographer and an extremely kind-hearted person.

“Emily has an impeccable eye for beauty. During my lifestyle shoot, she chose backgrounds and lighting that complimented my outfits and really made the photos pop! She managed to capture many facets of my personality in each shot. Not only were the results superb, but her joyful and encouraging spirit put me at ease. I left that day feeling like a million bucks!”
