Graduating is a big deal.

You’ve done it. 13 years of school! So much homework. So many friends. And so many memories made in between. I’m here to help you celebrate what you’ve accomplished and feel empowered for what you’ll tackle next!

I'm Type A...

So you don't have to be.

Let me handle the details. You just have fun.

It’s a blessing and a curse, what can I say? I’ve been a high-achieving, hustling go-getter for as long as me (and my mom) can remember.

But this is to your advantage. I’ll notice everything: the hair that’s out of place, when you’re not 100% comfortable in a pose, and the exact song you need to loosen up.

“i cannot recommend emma enough!”

She took graduation pictures for me and made the experience so wonderful. She makes the session SO fun with her bubbly personality and her speaker in hand, making it so easy to feel comfortable behind the camera. The photos turned out amazing & she was able to get them back to me so quickly. Cannot recommend her enough!

And why I do this in the first place

Cheers to you Dad. I love and miss you always.

The importance of photographs

Bummer alert, trigger warning, take a deep breath … I’m gonna say something a little sad. But there’s a happy ending, I promise!

I lost my dad when I was 15. When he passed from cancer, we immediately gathered all we had left of him, including photos. For the first time, I realized how powerful photos were. When you lose someone, you just want all your memories of them in one place. They bring you back to moments, to seasons, to memories. It’s the main reason I decided to become a photographer and as cheesy as it sounds, I can feel my dad with me as I do this work. I do it so seniors and their families have their memories close, forever.
