how to convey all of this information in a more concise and emotional presentation?

i want to provide more than just a pretty picture. I want your photography session to be fun, silly, playful. during each session, it's your job to simply 'be' with your child and re-connect. when you see your images, i want you to remember those giggles, those little things that make your child so darn adorable.  i want you to go forward with a stronger love for your children. and then, i want to pay it all forward.

the mission of emma colby photography
is to inspire parents to strengthen the connection with their children by offering meaningful experiences and heartfelt images


more simply, my hope for you is to:

connect. see. love.

 that's the driving force behind everything here at emma colby photography.

see your images, see your cute littles in a new light


love your images, love your children, love for our city, love for our future



good for our community  


in order to create a better world, we need kids to grow up kind, open-hearted and loved. parents are the key to this next generation. every session provides a 4 week training session in positive parenting techniques for a parent on Chicago's west side. these families will learn to connect, see, love. too.
