As a busy mother of 3, I know how quickly time can slip through your fingers. I have always loved having a having a camera in my hand, but motherhood has allowed this lifelong passion for photography to grow wildly. Being able to take the most simple and precious moments in my daughters’ lives and turn them into art that our family can admire forever has been a wonderful experience. The best part about it? I can do the same for you

I specialize in family and lifestyle photography both outdoors and in the home as well. I am also experienced in birth, newborn, seniors, weddings and everything in between.

If you have any questions or would like more information about pricing or booking a session, or to find when I'll be in your area, please check out my website or message me right here!

Thank you for your interest and I can't wait to work with you!

This woman is AMAZING! It was so cold out but she made it work with two babies! I've also never had a photographer get the work done as quick and good as she does. Oh and did I mention she's super affordable? One happy customer right here �

Here are just a few of my favorite pictures, captured by my dear friend, Emily Ann with Family First Photography. These shots were taken of Keni and I baking in our kitchen. It was such a cute special time that I absolutely adored with my little lady, and I am so grateful to have such a TALENTED friend to capture every ounce of sass, cuteness and fun we had. IF YOU GUYS NEED A PHOTOGRAPHER, I really highly recommend Emily. If you think these pictures are perfect (because we sure do!), do yourself a favor and check out her page. Her food photography will make you hungry, her family photography will make your heart skip a beat, and just meeting her, you will gain a forever friend! You can thank me later! ;)
Thank you, Emily, again for all of these! They will have a special place in my heart forever! You are amazing.

I couldn't be more in love with our fall family photos! Not only is Emily fantastic when it comes to props and posing, but she also encouraged us to play around in the leaves and just have fun... which is exactly what we did! Her creative eye captured some of the most gorgeous candids I have ever seen! I treasure these memories and EVERYONE asks me who took these gorgeous pics! I HIGHLY recommend Emily and can't thank her enough!

I'm so happy I met and was able to work with Emily. She made me feel very comfortable while being photographed and was very personable. She took time to search through photos and poses I had pinned on my Pinterest boards and even followed accounts I had based my ideal photos on. Her organization before and after our session assured me she was trustworthy and very professional. I will definitely be working with her again in the future and highly recommend.

Emily took amazing pictures of my two dogs, one of which is almost blind so it made getting his attention is a bit tricky. She was great with them and I absolutely loved the experience. I was in her new studio in chesterfield which was perfect for the pups. I have lots of friends who have done family shots with her, she is so great at capturing candid family moments, I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Family First captured so many amazing candid moments in a large family photo session and a mini session, I am so thankful for these captured memories. A client for life :)

I got Emily's name from another foster mom. She took beautiful photos of our family of 6 for us and was so pleasant and easy to work with. She was great at making the kids feel comfortable and got some fantastic candid photos. I am so happy with our photos and loved working with Emily! I will definitely use her again in the future!

Emily was so wonderful to work with and is incredibly talented. My son took to her immediately and we got some beautiful shots. I would love for her to continue taking our pictures for many years to come. The lifestyle shots are by far my favorite everything is so natural and she captures those special moments.

I hired Emily well in advance to take some family photos for us as a family (and also to celebrate my second daughter's first birthday) because we had moved to St Louis too late in my pregnancy last year to get newborn photos scheduled. I am so happy that we chose Emily because we now have some beautiful keepsakes from celebrating our first year as a family of 4! She kept us informed throughout each step of the process and was very personable and friendly to work with. She even got some smiles/smirks out of my youngest (who is usually completely stone-faced serious). We are hoping to stay in this area awhile so we can have her as our regular family photographer!

I would add more stars if at all possible!!! We were looking for someone who could capture the love of our little family along with our fur baby, Daisy. Our dog is 14 yrs old and we wanted to include her in our family photos with our 2.5 year old son. Emily far surpassed our expectations. Not only was she incredibly easy to work with in setting up our photo shoot, but she helped guide us through the process from start to finish. She was able to capture what I didn't even know was possible and we are forever grateful to her! She has now made certain that our Daisy girl will always be remembered. In addition to the amazing work she did for our photo shoot, ordering images was INCREDIBLY easy!!! And the best part....they are EXTREMELY reasonably priced!!! We have found our photographer for life in Emily! Thank you so much for your professionalism and love in your art.

Emily is AWESOME! She took some amazing maternity photos and was just at our home today to capture some newborn photos. She is very lovely, patient, kind and gets some amazing shots!

I have been using the same photographer since I got engaged and was very hesitant to "cheat" on them. I found Emily through a friend and loved her setup for the mini session for Christmas and couldn't be happier with how it turned out. She put all my fears at ease within moments of arrival with her easy going way! She was professional, fun, funny and quick with the turn around. If you're looking for one of the best in STL look no further!
