So glad you're here

Hey there! I’m Emma – a storytelling family, maternity & newborn photographer capturing the details of life & love with an affinity for authentic connection over artificial perfection. I serve the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota area & beyond.

I am also an encourager & an appreciator of all beautiful things – nature, light, wardrobe, moments… When these elements thoughtfully & intentionally come together, the magic of the everyday is preserved in an artistic & meaningful way unlike any other.

Maybe you’re visiting because you’ve seen some of my images & would like to see more. Perhaps you’re even considering booking a session for yourself (I can’t wait!). Whatever the reason, I’m so grateful that you’ve stopped by.

Please feel welcome & encouraged to look around some more & send me a message when you’re ready to connect.

"Your beauty shines through in the way you capture the love of the families you work with. So very talented, Emma, and we look forward to growing old with you. Thank you for helping us document the years!" - The O'Neils

The most important part of family photography is showcasing your authentic connection to one another. Preserving who & how you truly are as individuals & together in this moment of time. Your story. Your bond. Your physical sensations of togetherness.

With your own home as our session setting, we will take advantage of the familiar & comfortable atmosphere to document natural, affectionate interaction between your newborn & other members of the family. I also make it a priority to capture the newborn on their own, so you can remember every wrinkle & roll, each lash & dimple.

Whether it be maternity, a couple in love, or a child growing to a certain age, each is precious time that will pass quickly & not be repeated. Commemorating milestones & momentous occasions with beautiful, timeless photographs honors that time for the treasure it is.
