Hi, I'm Emily!  I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Virginia Beach, Virginia. 
I am married to my sweetheart, Justin and together we have two beautiful children who fill our lives with joy! I love warm weather, organizational projects and all things creative!

Family portraits are priceless! I hire a family photographer every year for my own family pictures because they are so important to me.  I would be honored to capture your family’s memories.

What happens at a session? 

I like to include all types of groupings during a session.  I start with the whole family.  Then we move into other groupings like siblings, individuals and even a mom & dad portrait.  Everyone gets their time to shine! 

What should we wear? 

  • Start with a color scheme.  I suggest picking three colors that appeal to you or even something that will look well displayed in your home.  After you decide on a few colors you can add in neutrals like khaki, gray, black and white.  Do not be afraid of color or subtle prints. 
  • Accessories and layers are a must!  A cute scarf, cardigan, statement necklace or hat can really add variety to your portraits!   
  • Have mom find her outfit first.  Because when momma feels her best, that’s always a win in my book!   
  • Seek inspiration online.  There are a ton of resources online when deciding what to wear for family portraits.  Visit my Pinterest board for ideas.  Please do not hesitate to ask me if you have any questions.

Do you give Digital Files?

YES!  Let’s face it, we live in a digital world.  Even our grandparents are on Facebook!  Every family will receive high-resolution digital images presented in a custom online gallery where it is easy to share, download and order professional quality prints.  The reason I do this is because it helps deliver images to clients faster and allows you the opportunity to share your images with anyone you choose—no matter where they live!  Gone are the days of waiting for your photographer to deliver your images at a snails pace! 

What types of pictures do you take?

I love a traditional posed family portrait, but I am also huge fan of candid and REAL moments!  When selecting a package, remember that more time allows for more opportunities for to capture these moments.  It usually takes clients 10-15 minutes to warm up to being in front of the camera.

How do I reserve a session?

Once we have decided on a date to shoot, a 50% retainer fee and signed portrait agreement will secure your session.  Personal checks, money orders and online payments by card are acceptable.    Then the fun begins!  Final payments are due 2 days before session.  Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the booking process.  I look forward to capturing your family memories!
