I’ve been working on something new for months now and hinting about it on our facebook page!   Well, the day is finally here and I’m thrilled to now be offering lifestyle and children photography, as well as weddings & couples. This is an entirely new endeavor and we’ll have an entirely separate website, facebook page, and instagram for my family photography.  Why not add another portfolio page to The Emerics and call it a day? Here’s why.   The  name for this new site is Jessie Emeric | Lifestyle Photographer.  Keeping it simple, folks!  But, as you can tell by the name, this is just me. Yup, Jason won’t be photographing the kiddos and families alongside me.  So, it just made sense to have a separate website for my lifestyle kids and family portraits, plus it’s a different set of clients.  Of course, Jason and I will most definitely still be offering the same photography coverage for wedding, engagement, and couples here!  We absolutely love photographing weddings together and nothing’s changing about that!

Here’s the deal, though, I don’t just want to offer plain ‘ol family portraits or stiff and boring photos of your child. No way! I want to offer families the same kind of happy, natural, and fun photos we offer our wedding couples. I want to capture the natural smiles, the belly laughs, the family connections. To me, photography is all about documenting life and life is unscripted and definitely not perfect. But life is oh so beautiful and if you let me, I want to show you how beautiful you and your family are, imperfections and all.

So, head on over to my new website and have a looksie, then go to the blog and enter the giveaway!!!  Up for grabs is one child, family, or high school senior lifestyle portraits session.


Thanks so much to all the families who have already allowed me to capture a bit of their awesome families and kiddos!  I really am excited to meet many more wonderful families and kids who want something a little different to capture their loves! xo

There’s nothing greater than two people in love.  Two people who are not only in love, but are also best friends.  Meet Jessica + Phil.  It was such a blast to get to hang out with them for a bit in Laguna Beach, Southern California.  These two really know how to live life to the fullest and enjoy every bit of it!  They work hard and play hard and are lucky enough to call SoCal home.

Being invited to document the arrival of a new life into the world is one of the greatest privileges I get to have as a photographer.  It is such a humbling experience to be in the presence of something so much greater than you.

This Friday, I helped welcome to the world baby Levi Sparrow Sage.  I met Angie and Wes early that morning and began to document their journey as they became parents to a new baby boy.  They walked into the hospital knowing that when you walk out days later, they’d be holding a new life in your arms.  That in itself is just mind boggling, isn’t it?

Angie had a scheduled C-section and both her and Wes were nervous and a little scared of what to expect but they had each other and having the person you love by your side is all you need to feel comforted and secure.

Baby arrived healthy and strong, weighing in at 7 lbs. 14 oz. and 20 inches long.   Angie was so brave and strong the entire time and never once whined.  Once she held her baby, she looked at him in awe.  So much is in store for this little man.  So many beautiful memories were made that day and yet so many more memories are to come.  There will be moments of pure joy, wonder, and laughter.  There will be sleepless nights and countless diaper changes.  Sometimes there may be tears and exhaustion.  But, most of all there will be love, unconditional love for this precious new baby boy who is so lucky to be born to two amazing people!  Two people who love each other, who will protect him, who will teach him, and who will love him beyond words.

Congratulations Angie & Wes!  Thank you for having me document the birth of your baby boy.  Much love to you both! xo, Jessie

Happy Friday!  Now that we are pretty much officially done with summer, we’re totally getting excited about cooler weather and all that it brings with it – boots, hot chocolate, pumpkin spice everything, and family portraits!  Once a year I offer fall & winter family sessions and I’m really looking forward to what this season has to offer.   I just love meeting families and children and capturing their special bond and personalities.  If you’re interested in having some beautiful family portraits in a fun natural setting in and around Las vegas, I’d love to hear from you!  Let’s make it happen.




Space is limited.  Dates, times, and locations will vary depending on availability. A 50% retainer will be required to reserve your spot and remaining balance will be due on the day of the session.

Contact me soon at 702.481.2944 or and we can chat about fun location ideas, outfit suggestions, and what you can expect during the session.  I can’t wait to photograph you and your family this season and capture some fun memories for you and your loved ones! ~Jessie
