philosophy

I love timeless photographs that tell stories. I think it is important to document your life and milestones with your loved ones. Whether you just got engaged, are graduating high school, or just welcomed a beautiful baby into your family, we all have a story to be told and I hope to document those beautiful moments for you. If I seem like a match for you, let’s get started! I’m so excited to work with you!

HI, I'm EMily! 

I'm an artist who lives in a small beach town in Michigan with my husband and one year old baby boy. I love living by the water. It's beauty is constantly changing with everyday and season. I live for anything creative! I went to school for painting and graphic design, yet found myself loving photography along the way. 

I am most passionate about my family, travel, and the arts. My favorite places are Paris, Chicago, Disney World, and art museums. 

Things I love: architecture, interior design, typography, exploring new cities, and long drives in the country while the baby naps. When I'm not chasing around my baby, I'm probably listening to Harry Potter audiobooks while designing or editing your photos : ) 

That's a little about me.

Thanks for checking out Elba Studio!
