Hello and welcome to my work! I'm so happy you have found your way to my website.
I started my business close to 10 years ago, from my parents' basement on our family farm just north of Dawson Creek, BC. I had a camera in my hand and a dream in my heart to make incredible experiences for people. I've always loved creating experiences for people, even as a little girl inviting friends over to our farm for the weekend - something fun, creative, and memorable was always in the cards!  Now I get to wake up everyday and do this on a much grander scale!  I have spent years mastering my craft and have worked with hundreds of women and their loved ones in front of my camera.  I have come to know portraiture, and it's relationship to confidence and clarity, inside and out and to be able to catch it for others to understand, cherish and be empowered by for a lifetime, is an honour.
When I am not fluffing tulle or helping to empower women, you most likely will find me snuggled up with my husband & our chocolate lab, in Salmon Arm at my family's farm, or sipping tea with my closest girlfriends.  I'm a very down to Earth, simple and relatable girl with dreams, visions, and creative ideas that are so expansive I need a solid 8-9 hours of sleep every night to keep up with myself!
I look forward to meeting you and learning about your story!

DOLLY POITRAS

"I was overwhelmed with the images Emily placed before us. I couldn’t believe it was me and I actually felt the strength and beauty that she was able to portray. I definitely look at myself differently now."

TAMMY HOEFER

"From the moment I entered The studio I felt like I was part of something special that I would never forget, I wasn’t wrong. As a mother of two young girls, it is important to me that I instil in them the value of “self love”, as most women know this is sometimes a hard thing to role model. The first time I saw my photos I was not only struck by the beauty of the images but more importantly how they captured how comfortable and confident THE team made me feel in my own skin. Every woman should treat herself to this experience."

CATHERINE PENNINGTON

"The portraiture experience provided a remedy which helped me redefine my own narrative and re-establish my own story, elevating me not only in my work as a leader but also as a wife, mother and friend."

BONNIE HATLEY LAARZ

“THE PROCESS OF THIS EXPERIENCE CHANGED HOW I LOOK AT MYSELF. IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST MEANINGFUL, MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS THAT I
HAVE DONE."

ANDY & LESLY STRASKY

"YOU CAN FEEL THE LOVE THAT IS PUT INTO EVERY IMAGE."

Frequently asked Q's for SIGNATURE Photoshoots

Absolutely! Although we encourage pets to arrive near to the end of a shoot.  For large dogs, we suggest an out of studio location for this part of your session!

Can I bring my pet?

From design session, to photoshoot, to image reveal - this process takes place over the course of one month.  We always do our best to host image reveals within  a minimum of 2 weeks of a photoshoot.

How long does the process take?

We love big groups!  Our largest group included 12 women.  We wouldn't recommend more than 12.  We love when women bring in their loved ones and many choose to include their partners or children 3/4 of the way through their shoot so they have the best of both worlds (personal shoot, family shoot).

How many family & friends can i include?

Do you guide me? I've never done this before!

We guide you through everything we do as well as all posing.  We use a combination of direct guidance as well as prompts that will encourage genuine reaction.  Don't worry, we are very confident taking the wheel so you can relax and enjoy the process!
