Emmy & Ollie Photography
Family Lifestyle Photography for You

Hi! I'm Emily, your Ann Arbor-based family photographer, and I'm so glad you're here!

I'm a mama first, photographer second, and partner to my wonderful husband third (whoops, sorry honey, love you!) I couldn't be happier than when I am taking pictures of my kiddos, but photographing your family definitely ranks up there. My wish is to become your forever photographer; there for you through all seasons of this beautiful adventure we call life. From newly engaged, through to cuddling with your first child at your newborn session, and all the way to sending those sweet babes off to discover the world for themselves, I'll be there documenting your family's history. You'll have sweet keepsakes to cherish, and a legacy of love and happiness to share with all of your friends and chosen families. If this sounds too good to be true, don't worry it's not! I'm here for you every step of the way.

“Emily is the absolute best family photographer. She’s a mom herself and she TOTALLY knows how chaotic it can be to do photos with young kids. She is phenomenal with children and has a way of making them feel at ease. Not only this, but she’s very efficient- I am always AMAZED at the pictures she gets in an hour with my 3 kids under 5! She’s punctual, communicative, and professional. Not to mention, we always have our photos the next day!! You will love her and will never want to hire anyone else.”

A Little About Me

I'm here for you every step of the way

That's me (yep, with the pink hair) and my kiddos (they're a bit bigger now) and I am so proud to be their mom. I'm so excited that I can share my art with them, and share them with my community through my photos. I have always had a love for photography, even way back when all I had was a disposable camera, and have been photographing people for over 20 years. I originally thought I wanted to be a photojournalist and that's why I ended up in art school at the University of Michigan, but later realized I loved photographing families, and especially young kids. They make me laugh and boy do I love to laugh! I can't help but smile when they say silly things, and I love getting to see their truest personalities shine through. Most of the families I work with tend to say the same thing, which is how comfortable they feel when I'm behind the camera, and that is what keeps me going most days. I am here to make your life easier and more beautiful. This is what makes me the most happy in life (except for maybe these goobers I get to call my own).
