Traveling Michigan Lifestyle Photographer documenting lives full of love and legacy

not poses




Life moves fast and planning a photo session can feel overwhelming. You want to capture this time in your life but sit-and-smile-at-the-camera is just so not you. I’ve got you - you’re in the right place. With over 12 years of experience and skill I put behind the lens, you don’t need to sweat it. 

(no matter how crazy)

I’m Along For the Ride

I am here to preserve your moments, not poses. You should be able to relive the heartbeat and the happily unplanned with your future family, over and over. Your love will be exquisitely, candidly, and genuinely captured leaving you actually having fun instead of holding a cheesy smile.

I am all about the relaxed and real

we are so happy with our photos!

From prints on the wall that remind you of the beautiful love in your life, even on the tough days, to an album that gets passed around on rainy weekends or every time grandma and grandpa visit, I’ll help you do something with your photos. This is not only your photo insurance to preserve your memories no matter what technology decides to do, but these are the tangible memories you’ll one day pass on to the very same kids we photographed.

I mean that quite literally.

This is your family heirloom

Emily captures the real qualities of love between 2 people. She does this not by posing you or positioning you a certain way. She does it by capturing the        laughs, the           smiles and the        kisses.

Emily did an awesome job capturing my high energy 2 year old, making my 13 year old less self conscious with laughs, and working with my wiggly 6 month old! The photos are beautiful and we couldn’t be happier!

Life is short and we ought to be out there making the most of it; giving our time to people that matter, experiences that help us grow and work that fulfills us. I’m lucky enough to say I have found that, and I would love to bring that energy to capture your love story.
