Family Friday | Jeanette + Johnny Las Vegas Maternity Session

I'm so excited to finally share Jeanette and Johnny's sweet maternity session! They are such a great couple and genuinely nice people, I just know they are going to be terrific parents! Jeanette and Johnny welcomed their beautiful baby girl last month and are starting off the year as new parents! How special is that?!?  

2018 will be such an amazing year for them.  Sure, there will be sleepless nights, but it will be filled with that much more love and parenting adventures!  Here are a few of my favorite from their session among the gorgeous Las Vegas desert mountain backdrop! Enjoy! 




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

Las Vegas Desert Anniversary Session Tasia + Joel


A few weeks ago we met up with Tasia and Joel for their 6 year wedding anniversary photo shoot.  What makes this session so special is that we were there 6 years ago when these two lovebirds came to Vegas from Wisconsin to tie the knot! We were there when Tasia stepped into her amazing show-stopping red rhinestone stilettos.  We hung out with their families as we took a tour along the strip and stopped for photos along the way.  And, we've been here ever since as they make their yearly anniversary trip back to Vegas!

We have long since become friends with these two and enjoy seeing them each year and grabbing lunch or dinner with them.  This year, they (read: Tasia) decided it was time to get some new photos together and we're so happy they stepped in front of our cameras again!  

T+J: Happy Anniversary! Can't wait to see you again next year! XO
