Hello, I'm Emma

Thanks for taking a moment to read about what I love doing!


I want you to be comfortable. I want our photoshoot to be fun and memorable. I want the process of your design to be enjoyable and easy. And, above all else, I want you to love the finished product . . . to frame your picture or design and stick it on your wall. Because if you don’t love the result, what’s the point?

It Works Like This

Contact me to book a photoshoot or talk about your design. Half the session/design fee is due at time of booking. For a photo session, we’ll meet at a great location and have fun capturing you or your family. Within a week I will put a gallery online for you to view and share with friends and family. After payment balance is received I will send you digital 4x6" images that you can take to be printed at your favorite photo printer. You will have an option to order prints + enlargements though your online album.  My hope is to make this process an easy and enjoyable experience.

Because I Know

Real life is busy and fast and I want my photographs and design to give you a chance to capture a bit of that love, that action and that momentum, before it passes.

About Me

Behind the lens

My Education?

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Virginia Tech where I studied Art with a concentration in graphic design. I've worked as an artist at a paint your own pottery studio, a graphic designer and photographer for a pottery wholesale company and now I work through Paper Story as a photographer and a graphic artist. 

My passion? 

Now, that's art. I love combining my photography with my design experience to create crisp, vibrant images for the favorite people in your life. 

And the rest? 

In all the other areas that occupy my time, I do what you do . . . 
I parent my three handsome young sons. (And frequently photograph them as well - how can I resist?) 
I am a wife to my wonderful husband Jon.
I chase after two unruly pups, Stella & Addie.
