  • The Art of Love…

    Welcome!

    I am a fine art photographer specializing in custom portraiture of expectant moms, babies, children and families. I consider my profession an absolute joy and honor, as there is nothing in this world I would rather be doing. I meet the most incredible, loving families and have the privilege of joining alongside them in their lifelong journeys. As if that's not great enough, along the way I am able to marry my two favorite worlds: photography and interior design.

    I am blessed with an incredibly loving husband and beautiful baby boy. They bring infinite happiness to my life and remind me that beyond all else, it is family that matters most.

    This blog is just a little taste of what we do at EMP. It is our way of sharing the joy that comes to us through our amazing clients. They touch our lives and inspire us each and every day. Please visit and comment often, as we love hearing from our friends! We will post sneak peeks from our sessions as well as lots of great info that the entire family can enjoy....

PHOEBE | dallas child photographer

I have been so busy (and happy!) being a new mom, that I have seriously neglected my blog over the past few months! We’ve had some really fun sessions, and I need to share the love! This is Miss Phoebe. She and her sweet mom were so great to work with. Love this little doll….

JOSH, BRENDY & BABY IZABELLA | dallas newborn photographer

We were so delighted to welcome this family into our studio recently! Brendy and I go all the way back to grade school, so when she called me recently to set up a newborn session, I was tickled pink. I hadn’t seen her since high school, so I was thrilled at the idea of reconnecting….AND meeting her incredible hubby and beautiful little bundle. It was so nice to catch up on old times – and see how she has created this wonderful life for herself. She and Josh are such an amazing team, and now they have this perfect little angel to call their own. Baby Izabella stole my heart….so this will be a pretty lengthy post! Love this family….

GRACE, PATRICK & GRAHAM | dallas newborn photographer

My heart is full of love for this family. I have photographed all three of their precious babies, as newborns and beyond. After two incredibly handsome and sweet natured boys, we now have a GIRL! Welcome to the world, baby Grace. You are just so tiny and perfect, and might I add that you are one very lucky lady. Your big brothers are going to spoil you rotten!!

THE GIFT OF LIFE….

So, on a personal note……  Manuel and I are thrilled to announce that we have been blessed with one of the greatest gifts of all. We are expecting a BABY! I cannot tell you how excited and grateful we are. After years of getting to know and love each of your little ones, I can’t believe that we’ll actually have one of our own now. For those of you that have been in over the past few months, you know what a journey it has been for me. Extreme morning sickness for nearly five months straight….ok, all day and night sickness. That said, I wouldn’t trade this experience for the world, and in many ways I believe it is preparing me for the journey that lies ahead. Thank you for all of your warm wishes and prayers! We are so grateful that God has put each of you in our lives.

So, here’s to our new little nugget that we already love so much. He or she is expected in early August, and that’s right, we’re keeping it a surprise. We won’t know the sex until his or her debut! So, guess away!!!

With love,

Erin & Manuel

Tricia Whitmer - I hope you feel better soon. If you ever need a sympathetic ear, I went through the exact same thing. It’s not fun, nor do you forget (as they all say), but SO very worth it in the end. I LOVE surprises and have no guess, but wishing for a healthy sweet baby for you both. MUCH LOVE!

erinmontante - Awe, Tricia! Thank you so much!! It does feel better to talk to others that have experienced the same. I was a hot mess for quite some time…but very grateful that seems to be behind me now. We’re now feeling the baby kick, which has us over the moon. I love you and am so grateful for your friendship!

Sally - Just now seeing your announcement, we were on a trip when you posted it. So very, very happy for the both of you. Know how excited you two are and can’t wait to meet your precious one when he/she arrives. Much Love.
