CELEBRATE WHAT MATTERS

WITH PHOTOGRAPHY THAT LASTS
let's chat

WELCOME!

Nothing warms the home more than a beautiful family portrait or gallery. Come visit at the new studio location in lovely Downtown Excelsior. It’s easy to find, just look for the red door next to Lick’s Unlimited Ice Cream and head upstairs. I love working with folks like you in the Twin Cities area and beyond who are looking for artistic photography that captures the true spirit of their children, grandparents, and loved ones.

YOU DESERVE TO HAVE BEAUTIFUL IMAGES OF YOURSELF & LOVED ONES THAT MAKE YOU SMILE EVERY TIME YOU SEE THEM

“I can’t imaging not having these photos now that my kids are older!” -Kate M.

I would recommend EJP to all friends, family and anyone wanting the best photographer in our area! Emily delivered the best, and I can’t wait for everyone to see my new wall art!”  – Megan T.

“I’ve tried so many times to get a nice picture of my kids where they are actually smiling. Not the cheeseball smiles, but real authentic expressions. Emily got it in 2 minutes. She is so playful and fun, my 4 year old son asked me the next day when we can go back to play with her! Now I know next year he’ll be excited to get family pictures – that alone is priceless to me!”  – Sarah R.

DECORATE YOUR HOME WITH TODAY'S LOVING MEMORIES

Hey There, I’m Emily

Professional Photographer & Entrepeneur

It is my belief that every single person who comes to me is beautiful and is worthy of being celebrated. No matter your age, size, shape, or how uncomfortable you might feel about it, I will help you shine. Each session with me is a collaborative, creative project where you will feel comfortable and confident being yourself and having fun.

As a mom of two boys, I completely understand that life gets busy. It can be hard to prioritize something like professional photography. I’m right there with you doing the pickups, dropoffs, scheduling events, volunteering at church, and all the other “hats” we parents pile on. Unfortunately, I also know the sadness of losing a loved one and digging through old boxes of prints or cell phone folders to try and find something (anything!) that comes close to a portrait of us together. We often don’t realize until it’s too late just how much we value a single image of someone that means the world to us.

It isn’t easy, and it definately is never perfect, but today we are creating the legacy our children will remember in the future. Having photographs and artwork of us ‘as we are’ today is a very important piece of this legacy. My kids deserve to see beautiful images of me holding & kissing them, and of our family together right now. If you feel the same way, then I can’t wait to work with you!
