Family Photography, Minus all the Stress

Your Toledo Family Photographer

A note from Emily

If you're a busy mom like me you might be thinking Ugh... family photos. The outfit planning, getting yourself ready, getting everyone else ready, the kids during the session, what on earth do I do with all of these photos when we're done? It's overwhelming just to think about! That's where I come in. Imagine your next photo session, minus all the stress us parent’s usually go through.

  • Outfit planning… see my HUGE client closet full of great options for the entire family.
  • Hair & Makeup… come get pampered for an hour before your session with or without the rest of the family.
  • The kids… I have 3 of my own, so trust me when I say I’ve got this. Child led posing helps to create true emotion and fun throughout your session.
  • The final images… “What do I do with them!?” We’ll sit down together to go through your images and I’ll help you choose from beautifully curated galleries, heirloom prints, albums and more.

These are the moments you'll wish you could go back to years from now. The tiny feet, little giggles, and endless imagination.

Those moments are 100% worth preserving.
