Heirloom Portraiture of your loved ones
Helping you design your next work of art
Go beyond the sea of taken & forgotten cell phone snaps. I help parents & grandparents build a legacy collection of family photography. Wall art you see every day. Little films of authentic beauty with your child or parent as the main character. We work together to craft a session that results in magazine-quality images of yourself or your loved ones you'll be proud to have displayed in your home. We start with the end in mind: thinking about your design style & who we are photographing, then designing the shoot to fit. Join me in this joyful creative process!
Hi there, I'm Emily
I'm a mama of 2 boys, a former piano teacher, a gardener, a school volunteer, a wish-i-was-a home designer, and an addicted coffee drinker. When you first meet me you'll immediately think "wow she's tall" because I am. In the winter I don't like to leave the house and in the summer I'm never inside. Maybe I was a mama grizzly bear in a former life.
I love helping parents & grandparents in the Twin Cities create meaningful family photography that represents who they are. I really love seeing kids light up when they look at a photo of themselves on the wall. Since I'm a busy Mom too, my goal is to make photos a fun and seamless experience for everyone. From planning your wardrobe to goofing around during the shoot to designing and hanging your wall gallery, I will do the heavy lifting - you enjoy yourself! This should be a creative & peaceful experience for you. How can I help?
