The purpose of art is to stop time.

why captured austin?


Because it's FUN

This is not your parent’s portrait session! I love to create a fun, relaxed, comfortable experience and then tease out the looks, laughs, and snuggles that define your family at this moment in time.

Because this is so important to me

This isn’t my side gig. Photography is how I support myself and my two kiddos. I take this job very seriously and it is of utmost importance to me that the families I serve have a positive experience every time. And I fall in love with it every. single. time. Meeting new families and watching them grow keeps me connected with my community and brings me so much joy.

Because it's EASY

I get you. I’m a busy parent. That’s why every session is straightforward and simple. Bring me your beautiful mess and we’ll make it into a work of art- promise. And then you’ll go on with your life and a beautiful photo album will arrive at your door.


 Love from my people…

Emily is absolutely the best at her craft! Her warm and gentle manner make everyone feel at ease and she is so skilled at capturing those perfect little moments. She has done our pictures for years and we wouldn’t trust any one else with these precious memories!

She immediately put us at ease during the shoot and had a great eye for bringing out the natural beauty and emotions of our family.

Emily was absolutely the best choice we could have made for our fresh 48 newborn session! The photos are stunning! She did such a great job at capturing our family at such a special and memorable moment in our lives.
