Family Friday | Elysse Amelie Turns Nine

Happy Friday! I realized it's been a bit since I did a "Family Friday" post, so I thought I'd share some very overdue photos of Elysse's 9 year old portraits this fall! I know, very overdue!  

Elysse has always been a fashionista and I am loving how she is so independent and creative. She has a sweet disposition and really cares for others.  She likes to make people feel loved.  She loves gymnastics, crafting, making slime, and making stop-motion videos with her dolls.  She even wants to start her own YouTube channel this summer! We're so proud of her creativity and spark.  XO

Family Friday | Downtown Las Vegas Family Portraits

For the past 5 years, I have been photographing Hollie and her amazing kids (well, Bryden isn't a kid anymore!) Let me tell ya, it never gets old! I absolutely love seeing little M get sassier each year.  This year, Hollie wanted to capture a bit more of an urban vibe, so we chose the colorful walls of downtown Las Vegas for our backdrop.  I think the family's outfit choices of black with the pop of pink went really well with the overall look Hollie was going for and I can't wait to see how she uses these for her new gallery wall! 

Yearly family photos are such a beautiful tradition.  Not only do you get fresh new photos for holiday cards, but they are a such a fun way to wrap up the year!  These photos will be cherished throughout the years and serve as visual reminders to your memories.  

Hollie: thanks again for letting me share in this tradition with you and your family! Love ya! 


If you'd like to start a new tradition of your own or if it's just been way too long since you had your last family photos taken, let's chat soon and make some pretty pictures together! I still have a few openings left for family photos this year and I'd love to photograph yours! Email me at jessie@theemerics to get on the calendar!  XO - Jessie
