I never really planned on becoming a photographer. (I know, we all say this, but seriously!!)
I went to college for Communication/Journalism expecting to get a cool behind-the-scenes job. In a way, I guess I still did.
During my time at Shippensburg University, I took one photography class which prompted me to buy a cheap Nikon.
After a couple of random Facebook posts, I had friends reaching out to take their senior, engagement, and even wedding photos!
I had no idea what I was doing but I showed up and I learned. And I continue to learn every single day. Not only to be a better photographer but a better human.
Being present is truly the best present we can give ourselves. The ability to slow down & romanticize your life is the gift I strive to give you & your loved ones with my seamlessly laid back planning experience.

You just did the 'thunk thunk' in your head, didn't you? Same.
Em is amazing to work with. She was not only easy to book, but communicates with you through out the whole process. From suggesting locations, wardrobe styles that would work best, to providing direction during your session, I know sometimes it can a little awkward standing in front of the camera, and time frame of when you'll receive your images. She captures beautiful moments with direction and a little bit of candidness that gives each image a unique flare. I look forward to booking her again!
Em is just incredible to work with! She makes you feel not only comfortable in front of the camera, but she also makes you feel confident! She will be your hype girl during the entire session and make sure that you’re having a great time. Em is super creative and artistic with her shots, but is also amazing at staging the more typical poses. We had such a fun time with her that even my fiancé said he was super excited to see the results, which we LOVED! We so look forward to working with Em again and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent photographer who will make you feel beautiful (even on the hottest, super humid days lol)
We absolutely LOVE Em!! My family and I have worked with Em multiple times. She has been amazing with our son. She had never worked with babies so young before, but you would never know! She captures his personality through every picture and we are so grateful! Also, her communication and turnaround time is unbeatable! We will continue to use Em for our future milestones and updated family pictures. We can’t recommend her enough!
I had the pleasure of having Emily take my engagement and wedding pictures. She is energetic, easy-going and captures intimate moments with a comfortable feel. I have recommended her to friends and family and will be requesting Emily’s photography services for all my future occasions.
My fiance and I recently got our engagement photos taken by Em and saying I'm in love with our photos is an understatement. I was lost for words when she sent me our sneak peaks and I saw how amazing the photos turned out. Emily was Professional, Fun, Easy to work with, and made us feel very comfortable the whole time during our engagement shoot. I would recommend her to anyone and look forward to using her again in the future!
Em was SO friendly and outgoing, she always makes me feel so comfortable for every photoshoot. She’s a great at hyping you up, and her ideas are like no other. Don’t get me started on the pictures themselves!!! They always turn out a thousand times better than you could ever imagine. A true goddess behind the camera. If you like greenery and bright beautiful pictures, she’s your girl!! Huge plus, she’s down for EVERYTHING if you have your own ideas too!!
While I’m not a mother myself, I am a member of many of my friend’s tribes with young babes. This means I give cool Aunt vibes to the kids while also being supportive and listening to the feelings & experiences of many new parents. I fully appreciate and understand your hard work, long nights, and unconditional love for your babies. I know that it feels like these moments go by in the blink of an eye. I know you want more photos with your kids. I know you have sentimental moments with them but you’re afraid they won’t behave for photos. And I’m here to tell you that all of this is okay and totally normal. I get life. I get parenthood.
And most importantly I get that kids will be kids and we’re just going with their flow most of the time. I am patient with my sessions, understand we are all human and am okay with taking breaks when needed. This is why I offer up to an hour and a half with all my sessions. This allows time for any snack breaks, diaper changes, or time to get the jitters out. This is your time with your loved ones. I’m here to document it authentically in a tastefully artistic way that leaves you with a lump in your throat & butterflies in your stomach.
