I'm Emily! I am a wife, mom, photographer, & serious book worm. Documenting stories & creating art that reflects real life emotions & moments is a passion that stems from having my own children & creating a legacy for them. I was born & raised on the Central Coast & am blessed to be raising my family in such a beautiful place. 

I believe in


fresh air

Singing in the car like no one can see

cloudy beaches

human kindness


embracing my 
inner nerd

a thing called love

Laughing so hard you cry

self love

Following your dreams


story telling

oh hey, new friend!





choose your adventure

Working with Emily makes the process feel so natural. We always get compliment after compliment on our photos. Excellent is an understatement.

Emily is such a gem of a photographer and so down to earth, it was just like having family there... maybe even a little better.
