I’m Emily - Nice to meet you!

I am a San Francisco based family photographer focusing on couples, maternity, fresh 48, newborn, family, boudoir and branding photography! I love taking photos, but I also love the fact that I get to meet so many families and fun people in the San Francisco Bay Area to discover their favorite and memorable spots, as well as share some of mine.
