I'm Emily! I am a wife, mom, photographer, & serious book worm. Documenting & 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!

kind words from clients

With so many photographers it's hard to choose. So let me make it easy for you... Choose Emily! She makes the process feel so natural. She asks you questions and plays games so you get natural smiles, not stiff ones! She gently poses you so you don't feel awkward, and of course she will make you so beautiful. We always get compliment after compliment on our photos. Excellent is an understatement. 


Emily is a fantastic photographer!! She took my sons newborn photos and they turned out amazing!! He was a little squirmy towards the end of the shoot, but she kept him warm and calm to get the photos done!

What can I say about this amazing photographer? She is beyond talented! I truly am honored to have had my engagement photos taken by her. She made the experience so fun! No serious moments, just pure happiness in these photos. I can't wait to have more photos done by her!! 


Emily took our family Holiday photos and I was absolutely blown away! She is so much fun to work personable, professional and has quite the eye for capturing, not only PERFECT photos, but also everyone's personality in her awesome pics! Can't wait for our next session with her!

We loved the newborn pictures Emily took of our baby! Being first time parents with a baby with colic made us nervous about how the session would be. Emily had a lot of patience with our daughter and even managed to capture one of her first smiles! She definitely eased the process for us!
