hi friend

I am your lifestyle family, newborn, and senior photographer based in eastern Nebraska. I am so excited to welcome you to Emily Hardy Photography.

I know that you understand the importance of leaving a legacy for the ones you love. I also know that you desire to preserve those little moments that are really the good stuff that life is made up of. I am here to help you do just that. 

It’s my mission to capture those squishy baby rolls, toothless grins, and even the awkward pre-teen years that you never want to forget.

- The Herrington Family

The photos were in our home which made the environment so easy and organic. I think this helps when photographing families with new little ones. Emily is always so easy to work with! We are always happy with the results.

- The McLain Family

Having Emily take our photos in our home, she instantly made us feel at ease and comfortable. She was flexible and easy to work with. Very professional, high quality photos, and great communication.

- The Laux Family

I can’t stop looking at our photos. Emily is amazing! She made our family session so easy and comfortable! I knew she had studied my questionnaire and had planned for the session. I didn’t have to tell her what I wanted because she already knew! Excellent photographer, and better yet, excellent person!

What you wear is key for a successful session. Clothing complements who you are as a family, speaks to the environment in which the session is taking place, and coordinates with the home where the final images will be displayed.

I love telling your unique story through your senior photos and your clothing plays a big part. If you have questions as you prepare for your session, I am always here to help! Send me photos of ideas you have and I’ll work with you to find outfits you love.

Living through a home remodel is rough. Having a toddler in said home remodel is exhausting. Bringing a newborn home to a construction zone and then also having an In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session seems almost impossible. But it’s not!

I fully understand that you are busy and time seems like it is slipping away from you as the kids grow and change daily. I will guide you every step of the way so you can stop stressing and instead fall in love with family photos all over again.
