I hadn't known Emily for very long when my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. We were in the final stages of her battle when Emily contacted me about me possibly wanting some photos with my mom. I hadn't even given it a thought with all that was going on. Emily offered to work with whatever schedule my mom could handle. We finally had a day where for the first time all 7 of mom's grandchildren were here. Emily rearranged her day to fit some quick photos in while my mom was able to be up. They were beautiful, emotional and very candid. They were simply perfect! 2 weeks later my mom passed away. The gift that Emily gave us in those photos is priceless. The fact that she had the empathy to know what we needed speaks volumes about her as a person. That was 5 years ago. Sense that time I have booked several family sessions and my daughter's senior pictures with her. She always takes the time to listen to our ideas and bring them to light with her amazing eye behind the camera. I have never been disappointed.
I've watched this beautiful lady evolve from a nervous young business woman to the top notch photographer and business owner that she is.
She takes everything to heart and worries about each session because she is so dedicated to making people happy. She is a rare treasure and an amazing person. Her work speaks for itself.
If you want quality, you want Emily!
"We love Emily! We have gone to her for everything from engagement, wedding, maternity, and baby photos. She makes you feel comfortable, and is so very patient. You will not find better picture quality or prices. We recommend Emily to everyone looking for a photographer!"
"I have always thought Emily's work at Infinite Joy Photography was above and beyond the best in our area. For her quality of work, her prices are also ridiculously reasonable! When I got pregnant, I contacted her (probably in my first trimester) because I love, love LOVE her newborn images! Being a photo lover, the tiny toes program was right up my alley. I loved having set appointments every three months to capture our son changing so quickly. She was wonderful with him at each session, even one in particular that I was sure there wouldn't be a single good shot of him because he was just not cooperating, but somehow she managed some beautiful images even then. To say I was sad for the program to be over is an understatement! However, we plan to still see her twice a year, at his birthday and again for family pictures before Christmas. When I have friends and family looking for a place to get pictures taken she is the first and only place I recommend. Her images are very sharp, bright, and never over-edited. They are the perfect wall decor that I was cherish for the rest of my life!"
"Emily is such a fantastic photographer, we wouldn't think of using anyone else, despite living 4 hours away. She is such a natural and has such a good eye for getting great photos. We even changed our wedding date in order to be able to have Emily as our wedding photographer! We are so happy that we did too because we love the photos we got from her and we will cherish them for the rest of our lives!"
"My family has been fortunate enough to know Emily since we were elementary students. Both my husband and I went to school with Emily and have known her most of our lives. When we began our family in 2012, Emily captured those very precious moments for us. She has continued to bless our family with her photography skills since then. Emily's passion has left us with a lifetime of beautiful memories. She is very professional but also makes us feel very comfortable and natural. Infinite Joy Photography has definitely brought a lifetime of joy to our lives"
"I had the pleasure of working with Emily for 6 years while I lived in Kirksville. She took maternity and family photos for me and both of my daughters completed her tiny toes program. Working with Emily is so much fun. She is patient, kind and works incredibly hard to get the best shots for you. The way she interacted with my children and let them be themselves produced the most fantastic pictures that I will cherish forever. If you work with Emily long enough it's impossible not to love her not only as a photographer but as a person as well. She has incredible talent and truly is one of the best!"
