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.

Hey there, I’m Emily

Professional Photographer & Entrepeneur

Creating a joyful empowering photo experience is my super power. 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.

Come to my studio in Excelsior MN. I work with Twin Cities families and professionals to create images you’ll  I think it’s important that we decorate our hom

es with photographs. Imagine every time you walk past that image you are reminded of a happy memory. Every time your child sees that beautiful wall art with thier face in it they know they are important and special. My work as an architectural photographer has really helped refine a love of creating welcoming homes filled with loving reminders that our children, parents, and grandparents are a special part of our lives. As a mom of two boys, I completely understand that live gets busy. I often have to slow down and remind myself that creating joyful memories with my family comes first. Today we are creating the legacy our children will remember in the future. Showing them they are a part of a connected community through intentionally created photographs is such an important piece of that legacy. If you feel the same way, then I can’t wait to work with you!

I look forward to creating a stunning collection of timeless images with you.
