Mothers have a magical touch.  Nothing is more powerful, healing or calming than the unconditional love that comes from our mothers.  Whether you know everything about your mother or not, there are sacrifices you aren’t aware of that your mother has done for you to have a better life – and she isn’t willing to stop anytime soon.  Your mother is special to you.  No one else will understand the exact importance your mother is to you but hopefully share the same feelings towards their own mother.  This Mother’s Day give your mother a gift that is truly timeless…a captured moment of her beauty.  4814 Grand Rapids Beauty Photography 106 This Is For Our Moms 4814 Grand Rapids Beauty Photography 101 This Is For Our Moms

Our mother’s beauty radiates from the inner depth of her heart and soul.  Her beauty should not just be shown through her love for her family but also for herself.  This mother’s day treat your mother to a beauty session.  1414Brown 107 This Is For Our Moms1414Brown 120 This Is For Our Moms

She deserves to be pampered by having her hair and make up professionally done to shine for the camera.  It is a wonderful sentiment to feel extra special for a day, while capturing those moments on camera that allow the day to last forever.  The added bonus is that the beauty your mother felt that day will be because of you – something she will never forget.

There is also the option of doing a session together – a mother-daughter duo – can expand the experience to greater heights.  Just the gesture alone to your mother will mean more to her than you can image.  Her happiness alone will make your heart feel her magic.  True happiness is seeing our mothers smile.  4415AKDT 101 This Is For Our Moms 4415AKDT 121 This Is For Our Moms

We are our parents’ greatest gifts in their lives.  They are beyond deserving of the world, so show your mother how they mean the world to you by gifting them something that will show the world the best version of themselves – a beautiful picture, of a beautiful woman, to shine to the end of time.


Remember your mothers on May 10th!  Show her how much you care!  Book her appointment today.

I recently shot Miss Tiffany for a gorgeous and edgy Beauty Session.  She wrote this wonderful testimonial that hits the nail on the head as far as what your experience will be like when you come to my studio.  Thank you, Miss Tiffany for your fun spirit and kind words!

“I have dabbled in a couple photo shoots in the past, so I had somewhat of an expectation going into my session with Jesamin of Emery & Co. Photography.  Although, I don’t like to hold expectation too high, because every experience should be different and judged solely on itself- unless it just totally just bombs.  However, any sort of expectation I could have been lingering on to, was completely crushed by Jesamin and her services at Emery & Co. Photography.

They play close attention to the small things.  The small things are what add up to make an experience great.  From the first time I met Jesamin, I immediately noticed, how well she is at engaging with you and being relatable.  She makes sure the outfits you have in mind will look great for the camera, figuring out the style or mood you want to capture, as well as overcoming any hesitations you may have about the process.

A major additional service Emery & Co Photography provides is hair and make-up.  With some photo shoots I have had in the past I felt like they could have been better if I had better make-up.  Lets face it we all just don’t keep make up on hand made especially for use with the camera.  And truthfully I think that is a good thing, we don’t have to walk around constantly thinking we are going to appear on TV or in a photo, ha.  She takes the time to sit down with you, the makeup artist and hair expert to figure out the look you are trying to capture.  If there is ever anything in question while getting glammed up, she is just an arms length away to help out!

Her minimalist approach to props and staging makes you the centerpiece of the photo.  After all, you are the one that needs to shine, not some pretty flowers sprouting behind your head!

Whether you are looking to get a little sexy, a little professional or just having fun, Emery & Co. Photography is a great fit for you.  The process is easy, professional and most importantly fun!  I promise you wont leave disappointed…so what are you waiting for?  Book your session today and experience all the greatness I just shared with you!”

12913 122 Gauge Your Self Love:  6 Questions To Ask YourselfThroughout all the moments, creations, accomplishments in life, these are only pieces to life’s puzzle; or seasons to your ultimate collection-You!

 If this question goes unanswered, it can affect your life, even small moments in your daily living.  Not being self-aware will trickle…

into negative energy radiating off your body broadcasting to the world, 

unconscious living,

possibly what you are inviting into your life without full awareness, and

what others are feeling towards you.

It is your duty to live true to yourself!  To learn to love what you have, to create to love and love to create.  If you do not love yourself, how do you expect to fully be able to love someone else?  Issues will always arise even if you may be blinded by the love for someone else in current moments.  There will also be an emptiness in which you will try to fill…searching, yearning, seeking…endlessly not seeming to go anywhere.

I ask you to subtly pay more attention to yourself.  When you wake in the morning, be present in the morning and honor yourself.  Set your intention for what you want to accomplish for yourself that day-regardless of everything else you HAVE to do.  Create time and space to honor yourself each and every day.  Ask yourself important questions:

Do you love yourself enough to:

Forgive yourself and others?

When your level of forgiveness comes into question, then your level of respect is in question as well.  If there isn’t a certain standard set, everything is a loose cannon.  Knowing what you are willing to forgive and not forgive is respecting yourself in what you are willing to tolerate, which is the level of love your have for yourself and those in your life.

Improve your body’s current condition with exercise and nourishment this world of ours gives us as energy?

If you don’t love your body you are willing to feed it processed, lack of nutrient food while cruising through life on the couch.  If you love yourself, you feel the respect your body deserves by making its physicality the best it can be to support you through life.

Follow your heart and honor your soul?

We can always gain knowledge and expand our minds, but our heart always leads up to where it wants to be happy.  Respecting yourself means respecting your heart.  Living in the present moments shows true value in the fact you want to listen to yourself and see where your heart and soul are most loved.

Expand your wealth and knowledge your brain thirsts for?

Do you spend time learning or do you wander aimlessly through life feeling slaved to others?  Some of us feel that we are happiest when we are helping others.  I am not saying that isn’t true but there is still a certain level of respect you must have for yourself to be able to help others the best you can.  Challenging yourself through expanding your mind can help keep you tip top and know a little more information each day that may be valuable to help others around you.

Be vulnerable and completely open to others and life?

To be vulnerable and open is to have trust.  If you don’t love yourself, then you don’t trust yourself and if you don’t trust yourself then you can’t trust others.  Let this soak in and evaluate your level of vulnerability to the world and those most important to you.

Reading this may seem pretty scary to some of you, but the good news is that is the first step to loving yourself.  Realizing and becoming aware of things in which you need to work on to be the best version of yourself-your ultimate collection, is like opening the floodgate to self-love.  Yes there will be moments when you feel extremely overwhelmed, but peace and beauty will come from it-this I can promise you.  It may not be as soon as you’d like, but if you are open to loving yourself it will be.  The love for yourself will arise; others around you will notice it too.

Questions that used to bother you will no longer seem important…things will seem to just fall in place with less worry, anxiety and stress.  You must love yourself to love the world around you.  How will you love yourself today?

When mom, Kate, and daughter, Tori, come to Grand Rapids beauty photography studio for a makeover for a super sweet photo session.  Beauty sessions are great for young women like Tori and perfect to share with moms like Kate.  It makes for a great bonding experience between mom and daughter because they both get pampered together and see the transformations take place.  I am honored and happy these two beauties could be here and in front of my camera.

Remember Part I of Miss A’s session? Back in January, I posted this awesomeness!!  I had the privilege and honor to have Miss Amy, from Flirt Fitness, a Pole Fitness Studio in Grand Rapids, be my video model.  Which also entailed that I photograph her as well because I want you all to know what kind of experience it is to have when you’re being photographed in my studio whether you choose to have a boudoir session or a beauty session.  It’s important for me that all my women that grace my studio have fun, feel glamorous, and look sexy.  And it was also my honor to have Aaron, Shelby, and Liam, from Style & Motion, to shoot our video.  It was truly was a dream team come true.

I just wanted to share my outtakes from the video shoot!!  You can find Part I here.

Thank you, again to:
