Photo Fun: Photographer Emily Wilson

Ready to be treated to more creative talent? I’m ready—and excited—to share again!

Emily Wilson is an online photographer friend I met through blogging. She is a kind and sweet person and an amazing photographer to boot. I know you’ll love her work as much as I do.

In fact, let me just go ahead and say “You’re welcome!” because I know you’re going to want to thank me for what you’re about to see. After all, she sent photos of babies for our viewing enjoyment! Have I mentioned lately how glad I am that Summer Photo Fun Is Back? :)

I’ll let Emily tell you about herself in her own words:

“I am a natural-light, on-location photographer serving the Northern New Jersey area. I specialize in photos of newborns, children, and families. My style is natural and relaxed with the goal of capturing genuine reflections of each family.

I have always loved taking pictures and am daily inspired, humbled, and challenged to be a better person and photographer through my work with each family. I particularly love photographing the sweetness of new babies and the joy of their family as they meet and fall in love with this new little person.

There is so much joy and love in newborn photos and it is a privilege to be a part of these fleeting first moments. I look back on the photos of my two boys when they were just days old and marvel at how much I can see of them in their newborn faces as well as how much they’ve grown and changed in such a short time period! I love being able to capture that moment in time for my clients as well!”

Here are Emily’s photos. Enjoy!


Are these great or what?! Which is your favorite? Thanks so much, Emily, for sharing your work with us! You can check out more of Emily’s work at

“People were also bringing babies to Jesus to have him touch them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Luke 18:15-16

  1. It’s hard to pick a favorite, isn’t it?! I think mine is of the little one resting his/her head on his/her arm. A close second is the cutie in the green knitted hoodie :)
