As always I have been working on a year end post. It has taken a few days as my NYE was spent capturing an amazing wedding, and the following day was spent recouping & catching up on sleep & email.

So today it was time to take a look back on 2011. It was such an amazing year. So many people came in front of my lens, and it really was my honor to capture so many weddings, couples, babies and families. Plus quite a few head-shots, non-profit events and even a bridal show.Weย  added in a studio space early in the year, and even changed logos and looks this year.

It really was just a fantastic year. I want to thank each and every one of you for your love ans support for emily g photography. This business really is an extension of my self and my family, and all of you friends, family and clients help me do what I love. THANK YOU!

Here are my favorites for 2011. I tried to pull at least one photo from each session. I hope I did not miss anyone!


here’s to an even better 2012!

I know we are still packing up holiday decorations, and thinking about NYE plans, but now is the time to start thinking about Valentines Day…

yet again this year I will be doing a pre-valentines day boudoir event. The date I am holding as of now is Saturday January 28th, if needed I may add in the Friday prior or add another weekend if it books up… so let me know now if you are interested!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from my family to all of you.

The emily g office is generally closed until new years for Amy & Greg’s NYE wedding! I will be tackling email here and there, but other than that I will be enjoying my babies and family. I hope you all get to do some of the same.

I am not going to lie, I am sitting here in my office FREEZING. Just a few more sessions to finish up for 2011 though!

Right now I am working on a maternity session from just a few weeks back. The lovely expecting mama was one of my bride’s this summer and is just as stunning as she was on her wedding day. I just adored working with these two again.

You can check out their beautiful and warm summer wedding here.

I will be back to peek a few maternity photos soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

It was just a year ago Mr Simon was a sleepy little newborn, and now he is a walking, squealing toddler. My how the time flies! For his summer time 6 month session we were outdoors in the country, so we picked the studio & some city shots for his 1 year photos. The whole family was great to work with as always. I not going to lie I am sad that his “babies first year” is officially over, these kiddos are always fun to point a camera at!


Here are a few of my many, many favorites so far:

Gah that little face kills me! Crissie & Dan thanks again for trekking into town for the shoot. It has been a pleasure to work with you all this year. I have loved watching your baby grown and your little girl get bigger too! Can’t wait to do this all again next year! As you know I will have the whole gallery done very soon. For now shall we throw down a blog contest? If you can get 30 people to comment on this post, I will throw in another set of cute little books.
