Our family recently had a mini photoshoot done with EmmiClaire Photography. Emily did an amazing job keep our three kids engaged and capturing their personalities. We are in love with all our photos!! My only regret is waiting as long as we did to book family photos with Emily. She is an amazing photographer and so much fun to work with!

We had a wonderful experience shooting family photos with Emily. First, she was incredibly accommodating and helped us book a session on very short notice and worked with us to schedule a time/length that worked best for my family. Second, she had an easy-going energy that was really nice to work with. We never felt awkward or uncomfortable and she had great ideas about where and how to get the best photos. She also packed special surprises to keep my kids engaged during the shoot and then little treats for them after we finished. It was such a special little touch. Third - THE PHOTOS. Oh my goodness, I was so happy to see the final results. We received all the digital prints, and I even asked her if she could make some minor edits to a few photos and she was incredibly responsive and sent them to me very quickly. Honestly I was blown away by the photos and immediately ordered almost two dozen prints to hang around my house. We could not have had a better experience - highly recommend!

From day 1 Emily was so welcoming and excited for my shoot! She made sure to take the time to figure out how I wanted my shoot to turn out. During the shoot, Emily made me feel very confident in front of the camera. She was so flexible with different venues and outfit changes and it all ran so smoothly. I will cherish these pictures forever and will definitely use Emily in the future and recommend her to all my friends !!!
