Cherish both milestones & everyday moments

The large moments are indeed big. Pivotal. But the in-betweens? They way you look at each other. The way your baby’s teeth are coming in crooked. The way your eyes wrinkle when you laugh without holding back. Those are the things to cling to. The things that make you cry and smile in the same breath. The bittersweet and beautiful deserve to be frozen in time.

this is photography for the bittersweet, beautiful delights of life.

Captured and captivated. These sessions, these stories, these people bring me to the present. They teach me about life, and love, and humanity, and God. I hope these stories inspire you to look at others with fondness, and at your relationships with gratitude.

Meet Emma

A feeler, a slow-life enthusiast, a person meant for coziness and simple delights. A reader, a yogi, a creative. A Harry Potter obsessor and United Kingdom enthusiast. A traveler, a Kansan, a wife, a mom. I’ve been creatively inclined my entire life, and am grateful this phase of creativity, artistry, empathy, and connection is through the lens (pun absolutely intended) of photography.

my goal is to always be present and mindful to fully capture the pure, unique qualities of you and your loved ones.

Whether you're hitting a milestone or reveling in this life phase and all it's lovely simplicities, let's freeze-frame it together.

The stories

"It felt like hanging out with friends you've known forever!"

"Emma and Andy went above and beyond to make our engagement shoot special! The made us feel completely comfortable the whole time with direction and being in front of the camera. It felt like hanging out with friends you’ve known forever!"


"the perfect team and super talented"

"Love working with Emma and Andy. They are definitely the perfect team and super talented. I have been in many photoshoots before and they are my favorite!!!"


"...they made the process so much fun!"

"Andy and Emma are AMAZING! We were excited but kind of nervous about our engagement photos and they made the whole process so much fun!  They kept it quick and light and gave us the perfect amount of direction. We got a good mix of formal photos and sweet candids. We would 100% recommend them and will keep these photos for life!"


"They were able to capture photos that truly felt like 'us'"

"We had the best experience working with Emma and Andy! Our session with them was so comfortable and fun. They were able to capture photos that truly felt like “us.” We couldn’t recommend them enough!"
