I spent a long time looking for the perfect person to photograph our family. I wanted someone who could make us feel comfortable in front of the camera and capture those beautiful family moments that aren't the standard pose and smile pics.
Emma every second of our Lifes Light experience was memorable. From us meeting over a nappy change in the boot of our car to the moment I laid eyes on those beautiful images you captured of our family.
You saw my cheeky monkey of a toddler exactly as I see her and the fun and love we share with her and our new baby girl shone through in your work.
We decided as we drove away from our session, before we had even seen the pics that we would be back for more.
I can't wait to see what you do with both our girls running circles around you.
Thank you so much!

I have had 5 sessions with Emma and a 6th booked for next year. She has an incredible, flawless talent to capture the beauty, features and personality of everyone she photographs. She really has captured my "Life's Light" so beautifully every single time! HIGHLY recommended!! X
The first time I have ever loved every single shot from a photo shoot!! Thank you so much for a fun shoot (which was quick too - great for my 2yo) and resulted in truly amazing photos x

Emma, I received my USB today with our photos and I have to say, I have never been so impressed! You were a joy to work with on the day of the shoot and the quality and honesty you captured in the images of my children is something that I will be forever grateful for. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Morning Emma. Just wanted to let you know our pics arrived yesterday and everything looks fabulous.
We love the photos and the album you created of our little family. We have talked about having family photos taken for years now and I'm so glad I stumbled across you! We got exactly what we had pictured in our heads, and then some. Our friends/family all adore the pics too (and the location!).
Thanks so much again, we are more than happy with the finished product and look forward to our next shoot. Hopefully Charlotte is more obliging next time.....although we're still amazed by the beautiful pics you got of her after she'd decided she'd had enough lol.
Thanks again x
If you asked me 6 months ago what I thought of having professional photos taken I would have turned my nose up! The images in my head of forced smiles and staged shoots made me cringe, thats not how I ever imagined wanting to remember my precious girls.
Then I took a look at your facebook page and my thoughts turned more positive, wow this girl is good I thought to myself, Im going to give this a go! After we had our first session I was blown away. The way you captured my family was amazing, precious memories I have for the rest of my life. My girls LOVED you and even more surprisingly to me, they LOVED having their photos taken and seemed to be quite the pros lol The anticipation leading up to receiving my edited pics was so exciting, I wasnt even worried will they be good, will they be terrible? I knew you had taken amazing shots, and sure enough when I received them it was squeals of delight and one very very proud mummy!
So then we spoke about a winter shoot and I didnt even hesitate, I knew I wanted more! And I can honestly say when I received this most recent lot of images, I was all choked up! The tears started flowing as I went through each image, every one of them showing me what beautiful, amazing, happy girls I have. I could not have been prouder or happier in that moment. I've said it before and ill say it again, you dont just take a photo, you take a photo of MY Taya and Maddie. The expressions on their faces are the expressions I see everyday, the expressions which make me laugh and smile. Your photos have personality. Everyone who sees them says "thats so like what Taya does" or "that is Maddie all over" I was completely and utterly blown away by this lot, they are simply FANTASTIC.
Having two sessions within 6 months was not something I thought I would do, but when I see the first lot and the second lot they are so different and more grown up!
So, to sum it up saying thank you to you doesnt really seem enough in comparison to what you have given me and my girls. Treasured photos of the most precious people in my life, and wonderful images for them to look back on when they are older. I really am so very grateful, and I only hope you feel proud and happy knowing you have given us a gift that noone else could have, your style, your passion, your creativity and flair will ensure you continue to capture the most precious gift of all....our babies xxx
You truly are one in a million Emma, so this is my thank you to you.
Thank-you so much for your speedy delivery of the photos, I am going to use some as the base of our Christmas cards.
I came across a post from one of my friends on Facebook to their daughter showing your special, I had been wanting to get some professional photos of the girls especially Poppy and when I looked at your website I was immediately sold your photos are beautiful and your description of service was exactly what I was hoping for. You really understand the joys or difficulties that come with family photos you made everything easy and fast which in turn created fantastic photos that we will treasure.
The hardest part is realising we don't have enough wall space in our house for all of them at once! I will be back for future family photo updates I just wish I found you earlier & got some pregnant belly shots.
I have already recommended you to friends & I will continue to do so.
Thanks again Julie, Eugene, Hannah & Poppy xx
I was given a voucher for a photography session with Emma by two of my dearest friends before the birth of our third child. My friends wanted to give me a gift that would keep on giving, and it was just perfect. I must say I was a little apprehensive with how the shoot would go especially with two strong willed girls and an infant in tow but I needn't have worried. Emma, you were so relaxed and yet still professional. My children felt no pressure and were free to be themselves. Our gallery of pics are super special. Priceless. Thank you for going that extra mile for us, it was a wonderful experience.
It's official, it's too hard! We will be getting all of them! I will purchase the upgrade Thursday morning.
I just wanted to say thankyou so much, I never expected that you would have captured so many beautiful shots. When Chelsea threw herself in the water I was shattered but you had already got so many wonderful shots! And I know I just have to wait until Joshua and Chelsea are 5 to get my dream close up family shot. Oh, and the photo of Joshua and Chelsea walking off into the water together is devine!!
I will be reccomending you to everyone I know and will book with you next time we are due for some photos. For now I just have to figure out how to display all of my photos without looking a little crazy!
Thank you again Emma for the absolutely gorgeous photos. This was my fourth session which shows how impressed I am with your work. Emma is fantastic at making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera which makes the shoot fun. My daughter has come home asking to see you again each morning for the last week!
Oh Emma they look absolutely beautiful!! We are completely overwhelmed with how generous you were with the quantity we received! I seriously cannot express enough how much we appreciate the beautiful opportunity and breathtaking photos you have given us! I cant wait for you to capture the rest of Billy's life!! Thankyou so much again!! Gratitude! See you next time!!!
Norevi & Craig
Thank you so much for the magnificent photos! Even with two young, somewhat uncooperative children you managed to get wonderful images that captured their true personalities!! Keeping the session quite relaxed meant they didn't get too 'over it' too quickly, and they actually had fun in the process!
Thank you again, and we look forward to having more photos done in the future!
Emily, Martin, Bella and Henry
I just wanted to thank you again for giving us the most beautiful photos of our family. I love that when you are photographing you bring the "mum" aspect into it. It really makes it a relaxed environment with no pressure and the girls loved you! This is the second time you have photographed my family and it certainly won't be the last! Thank you so much xx
I would just like to say a very heartfelt thank you to you, Emma, for capturing the love between our little family so perfectly. All we wanted was a picture to keep forever that marks our daughters first birthday but we got so much more! You truly are a treasure, we can't thank you enough for going out of your way to help us & you worked in so well with us on the day that you never really seemed like a stranger! We cannot wait until next year when we are definitely going to have another session with you!
Thankyou again, Megan, Scott & Bella xx
Emma was a delight to work with. She made us all feel very comfortable and relaxed. She quickly established a great rapport with our toddler, who kept asking for ‘more Emma’ in the days following our photo shoot! We were very happy with the photos that Emma took which will be priceless treasures for us in the years to come.
Thank you SO much for capturing the playfulness and imagination of my “fairy” loving little girl. We had a ball having our photos taken in the forest, and looking for the fairies as we went along. I cant thankyou enough for letting the imagination of Macie shine through in the pictures you captured for me. You have such a natural talent for capturing the individual qualities of each person you photograph and this has been evident in all pictures you have taken for me over the past 2 years.
You have documented some of the most precious qualities about my daughter that I love so much, her playfulness, cheeky smile, big brown eyes and incredible imagination. We always feel so comfortable when being photographed by you that it just feels like catching up with an old friend.
Once again Thankyou Emma for allowing me to document my little girl growing up and changing in the most beautiful way, I don’t have the words to thankyou enough for this.

The pictures are amazing... cant stop looking at them! Beautiful as always!
Emma was referred to me by a friend a year ago and I am so glad she was! We have had 2 sessions now with our little girl and both times have come out of the session saying how fun and easy sessions are with Emma! Emma makes everyone feel instantly comfortable and like you are catching up with a friend. The photos have been more then we hoped for she has great talent working with little ones and it shows through her work. I cannot wait for our newborn session in a few weeks. Thanks Emma for creating such beautiful and lasting memories for us to display on our walls.
