CELEBRATE WHAT MATTERS

WITH PHOTOGRAPHY THAT LASTS
let's chat

YOU DESERVE TO FEEL PROUD AND EXCITED ABOUT YOUR PHOTOS

“OH WOW, I’VE NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD IN A PHOTO” -KATE

I’ve helped hundreds of Moms, Dads, Kids, and Grandparents feel worthy of having stunning photographs. Let me do the same for you.

GIRLS DAY OUT SESSION

YOU’LL LOVE THIS ONE!

Come in and get the full service pampering. We’ll have a fun experience of being styled, getting pro hair/makeup, and learning how to pose for amazing photos. Book a Girls Day Out Session today for just you, or bring someone special to join in the fun!

STUDIO/OUTDOOR FAMILY SESSION

Don’t blink or they’ll be another five years older! Capturing heirloom images of today, so you can hold onto them tomorrow. Families, generations, children, and dogs are all welcome!

 

TEENS & SENIOR SESSION

Commemorate their High School years with a Senior portrait session. For tweens, teens, and almost-seniors, this is a super creative and fun experience!

 

HEADSHOTS & BRANDING

Working with local business or entrepreneurs, we create a set of headshots or branding photos you can use today to strengthen your marketing and online presence.

 

WELCOME!

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 to display in your home or in your business. Come to me when you want to go beyond the sea of taken-and-forgotten cell phone snaps that live on old hard drives and facebook folders. When you need an experience of service and quality, that’s what I’m here for. I love helping everyday people feel extraordinary.

BECAUSE THIS MOMENT WON’T LAST FOREVER…

…BUT THE PHOTOGRAPH WILL

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 and 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. 

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 them (before this mop of grey hair totally takes over!) If you feel the same way, then I can’t wait to work with you!

I FINALLY got the courage to let go of my 2013 self (one of the only pictures I have ever liked of myself that I was reluctantly using everywhere for my business as it was not a professional photo) and have two of yours on my website now! Thanks for making the process easy, allowing me to be my natural self, and making me look great! I am thrilled and shocked to have 5 photos that I like! I never thought I would have multiple options to use for my marketing needs going forward. My best friend said you did a great job of capturing my natural beauty… emphasis on NATURAL! Amazing. Thanks so much!”
