Hi, I'm Emma.

Since first picking up a camera as a teenager, I’ve been passionate about capturing natural moments in time. This interest began as I wandered around the yard of my childhood home, snapping photos of evening light and flowers. This love for organic imagery soon shaped my philosophy as a photographer. 

So, let me tell you a little about me. 

I was born and raised outside of Rochester, NY, and I now call this city home. I love walking around the woods, getting lost in a good book, and cooking tasty food. My friends and family are the center of my universe. I’ve traveled around the world and continue to be deeply inspired by the beauty I’ve experienced.

I value connection, simplicity, and joy. 

And I’ve used these values to shape this business. 

When working with me, you can expect a stress-free photography experience. I'll ensure your comfort in front of the camera, and we'll leave the session as friends. And the best part? You'll receive a set of timeless images that are oh-so uniquely you.

Emma is also the co-founder of Dear Blossom Studios, a portrait studio in Rochester, NY. For information on headshots, senior portraits, and personal portraiture, visit the studio's website.
