Toronto Family Photographer

Making art from real people since 2010

Leave the stressful bits to me

Mama, all you need to do at your fun family photoshoot is show up and enjoy yourself.

Instead of stressing about how to dress, you'll have perfectly curated outfits and glowing makeup for family photos fit for a magazine spread.

Beautiful wall art that's chosen to exactly fit your home, and a truly heirloom album designed for you. No need to hunt through your computer.

A bespoke family photography experience that is designed to take the pressure off of busy moms and create beautiful, heirloom artwork.

I've been photographing families for over a decade and love creating naturally beautiful images that share the magic of your family. Life can go by in such a blur but taking the time to create images of your family history and candid moments is always worth it.

Commission Emily

It's not a matter of if you lose your digital photos but when.

If you wait 6 years and finally decide to print your family photos, you may find (like I did) that they were lost to a computer problem you didn't even know you had.

The safest way to ensure you'll always have your family pictures is to print them. You're a lot less likely to accidentally throw them away than your computer.

So print all those beautiful, special moments and actually enjoy them, instead of losing them in digital spaces. No family photos want to grow up to be just a jpeg.

Once you've reserved your family portrait session, we'll have a planning appointment where I'll style you and your family's outfits. You'll have the option to use pieces from my client wardrobe or from your own closet. We'll plan out the location for your family photos as well as your artwork preferences.

I'll commission one of my favorite hair and makeup artists to come to your home and get you glowing! Then we'll have a relaxed, fun photo session where you'll never have to wonder about what to do with your hands.

After your session, we'll meet again so you can see your beautiful images for the first time. I'll help you choose which wall art, albums and framed prints are right for your home. We can even design a gallery wall for you during our meeting.

About 6 to 10 weeks later, your beautiful artwork will be complete, ready to be picked up and live it's best life being enjoyed in your home.

If you blink, you might miss it.

It's So true.

When I was a I sleep deprived mom of 2 little boys with one on the way, the last thing I felt like doing was being in photos.

But looking back on those hazy, busy years, I'm so thankful for every family photo I have because even when I can't remember, they are my memories.

And now seeing my boys look at their photos and marvel at how small they were, and how mom and dad have always loved them so much, makes me wish I had taken even more.

Hi! I'm Emily.

Your Family Photo Fairy Godmother

I'm a Toronto family photographer serving the Greater Toronto area and Southern Ontario. As a mom of three boys (Yes, all boys. You read that right.), I really have a heart for making sure mamas get in the photos with their family.

We're always so busy making sure everyone else is taken care of and ready for photos, that we barely have any energy left for a shower! That's why I've crafted my family photography business to help YOU feel cared for and beautiful.

I want to be the family photographer for you that I wish I had when my guys were little, I was sleep deprived and had no idea what to wear. So instead of having a photoshoot add stress, I want your whole experience to be delightful, relaxing and so special.
