Emily Perkins Photography  |  Bettendorf, Iowa

The smile behind the camera...

I am the Iowa-born, mom of three little boys, and the wife to an amazing husband that supported me on this journey to follow my passion and do what I love.

After seven years working my dream marketing job at a concert venue, I launched my photography business and this little adventure began...

So what is a typical family shoot like with me? Well, I capture the little details and true personality of your family at this very moment. There are no rules.  We tell jokes, play and explore. The most meaningful photographs come from letting your kids be themselves; silly and unpredictable as that may be!

So let's create beautiful artwork out of your baby's big toothy grin and wobbly first steps, or laugh with your silly oldest child trying to steal the show.  Trust me, some day, not far from now, that's what you will want to remember.

My Style

Most say that my work is joyful, authentic, smooth and full of rich color and beautiful light.

I don't like clutter, so I guess you could say that my style is also slightly minimalistic. I carefully edit each photograph to remove background distractions and enhance what is important - the emotion & joy in the image.
