Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Hi! My name is Emily and I'm so happy you're here. :) If interested in booking a session, I can also be reached through my website: I've been a portrait photographer since 2018. I serve clients across the Lehigh Valley, Poconos, and Philadelphia regions of Pennsylvania, but will travel anywhere! I specialize in family and child, maternity and newborn, couples and engagement, and senior and graduation photography. My mission as a photographer is to help you celebrate and connect with your humanness. To do so, I center my approach and style around the following principles: -Let's get to know each other and be friends. -No two clients, sessions, or galleries are the same. -Collaboration, but your ideas first. -You won't even know I'm taking your photo. -Your comfort is priority. -Recreating moments you want to relive forever. -Light + art + vibes. -You have control. Ultimately, I want the portraits we create to be authentic & artistic expressions of you and your story. I strive to build genuine connections, create expressive and organic moments in a comfortable atmosphere, and follow the unique vibes of who you are in this moment against the backdrop of our world. Thanks for considering! I hope to work with you, Emily

Emily came to our home and took photos of my family for my daughters first birthday. She was very respectful, knowledgeable and remembered everything that was written in the questionnaire she sent before the shoot. She captured my family beautifully and we came out with 400 beautifully edited photos that we can remember us how we were together for my daughters first birthday forever !

Details: Family or children's portrait • Candid (captured in the moment) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

We decided to have our first family photoshoot with our 7 month old daughter. I didn’t know what to expect but when we arrived at the location, Emily made us feel right at ease. She guided us but also gave us the space to just be in the natural setting. The pictures are beautiful and artistic which is exactly what we wanted. We were so impressed with Emily’s work and professionalism, and would not hesitate to recommend her to our friends and family.

Details: Family or children's portrait • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

I never write detailed reviews like this, but I absolutely cannot speak enough praise about The Small Narrative Photography, or the woman behind it all, Emily! We did a branding shoot that included some "headshot" type photos for the book that I'm publishing. Once we got those done, we even had plenty of time and an (Emily's) overflow of creative energy to do other artsy, fun, and playful shots that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Aside from family shoots at Kmart back in the early aughts, I'd never had professional photos taken before. I was nervous, to say the least! Those nerves were eased quickly, though, because right from the first email, Emily laid out the details for me and made sure to ask for my opinions on what types of poses, editing style, locations, and overall turnout I was looking for. Anything I couldn't quite describe, she filled in the blanks by sending over inspiration photos and collaborating with me throughout the entire process. Once we got to shooting, she found so many fantastic spots (that I never would have noticed) to take incredible pictures, talked me through poses, and I'd like to note that I can be quite the awkward bird in general, let alone in front of the camera. By some force of magic, Emily was able to ease my nerves further and make me feel completely comfortable in front of the lens for the entire shoot. Emily went out of her way to make sure I would have the photos of my dreams by the end of it all, and she NAILED it. I haven't even gotten all of the photos back yet, it's only been three days (!), but I already have a second session planned for spring, 1000% intend on having a session with my partner and dog, and will exclusively be hiring Emily for all my portrait photography needs. I would give her 10,000 stars if I could!

The Small Narrative (Emily) is such an amazing photographer and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs family photos done! This was our first time getting a photographer for our own little family and Emily was professional from start to finish. She was extremely responsive and thorough in her responses when I was considering hiring her. She sends very helpful info even before the shoot (location directions, what to wear, what to expect, etc.) and during the shoot she made all of us feel at ease. She edited the photos exactly to my liking and we are so blown away she was able to capture such beautiful images even with our 13 month old being difficult for most of the shoot. Emily provided over 150 beautiful images for us to choose from and really took her time with us the day of the shoot. Exceptional value for the Lehigh Valley. I would hire her now while you still can!

Details: Family or children's portrait • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Candid (captured in the moment) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.
