Hi, I'm Emma.

It's nice to meet you. 

Thank you for stopping by my corner of the internet. You may have arrived here from social media or through a personal recommendation. Either way, I hope to meet you offline soon. 

Because that is where the good stuff happens. 

When booking your photo session or wedding with me, you can expect a calming and engaging experience. I promise to put you at ease from the moment we meet, and the rest will flow from there. 

Personal connection has been at the center of my craft since I first picked up a camera ten years ago. Since then, I have fallen in love with portraiture. My work has been featured in national publications including Teen Vogue, and I recently co-founded Dear Blossom Studios in Rochester, NY. 


My personal photographic style is colorful, bright, and breezy -- keeping you at the center of every shot. 


Through playful encouragement and steady encouragement, I will help you thrive in front of the camera. Together, we can create authentic and creative imagery for you to share and cherish. 

Kind words...

"Emma is an absolute delight to work with! She took some truly amazing photos of my boyfriend and I for Valentine's Day -- we had so much fun working with her! She kept us comfortable and laughing the entire time."

"I was very nervous about getting my photo taken professionally because I thought it would be awkward. But by the end of it I felt like Emma and I were best friends! We were laughing the whole time and it was so much fun!"

"Emma is always a pleasure to be around. She makes you feel comfortable in every scenario and turns around photos incredibly quick. And the results always go above and beyond."

"Emma does outstanding work! We're extremely happy with the photos she took of our family. She's a great person, has a great eye and takes amazing pictures. Can't we give her six stars?"

"THIS IS IT, HONEY. Emma made my boyfriend and me feel so comfortable that we remarked that our photo session was like a fun little date night! Emma is fantastic at giving direction, and I felt beautiful when she was photographing us...Emma has the creative eye that so many of us lack, and we had an absolute blast. She is now who I will go to for all my photography needs!"
