"If anything is worth doing, do it with all your heart."



Hello. I'm Emily, portrait photographer in Bend, Oregon. I have a deep passion for photography as artistic expression and capturing life -with heart- through my lens.  

I am inspired by the beauty in all things, and love capturing honest, intimate, artful  moments of expression and connection. I am a mother of two amazing boys.  My time is spent loving them and our sweet and imperfect family.  I am committed to learning/unlearning, relational healing and justiceconnecting deeply with self and others, slowing down and learning to be fully here. Currently offering family portrait sessions, as well as personal branding photography.


Family portrait sessions are $400 for families up to six people ($25 for each additional person). Full sessions include approximately 1.5 hours of shooting time and 15 high quality, digital images. Please see Newborn and Branding pages for pricing and details.


Mini portrait sessions are $200 and include 35 mins of shooting time and 5 digital images. 

20% of all photography proceeds are donated to The LoveLand Foundation, a Black run organization providing therapy to Black women and girls.

Special pricing is offered for families in need.  I realize many factors play into our circumstances and I want all families to have the same access to my work.  Let's talk.

Outdoor sessions are done ~an hour before sunset when the lighting is most flattering for photos.  To avoid harsh or undesirable shadows, doing sessions outside of this time period is not recommended.      

Your carefully selected and edited, high resolution jpeg images will be delivered 3-10 days after your session via private online gallery where you can digitally download them. Please contact me for additional information or to schedule your session.
