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.

The winter blues are hopefully behind us with spring here.  That’s right, spring has sprung!  Celebrating the blossoming of Mother Nature’s beauty is all around us.  Why not take a little inspiration from Mother Nature herself and do a little spring rejuvenation to ourselves.   Lets release our skin from underneath those wintering dry dead flakey layers!  Your face is ready to greet the sunshine again after a nice do at home super easy and fun face mask

To pay our greatest tribute to our city, which has been pegged, ‘Beer City USA’, lets take something that is of plenty and use it to make our skin shine.  Yes, you guessed it, the main ingredient in this do it yourself facemask is beer.  It isn’t just for the boys anymore and not just for drinking.  Beer can be used for multiple purposes, but today I am sharing with you how it can make your face glow!

Balancing the Hulk

The hulk or should I say, Bruce Banner walks the fine line of not getting too angry, and I hope you don’t allow your skin too either.  Ideally you want your skin to be happily radiating to keep the anger at bay.  With the ironically named Balancing the Hulk facemask, you too can keep your skin’s moisture balanced, with clear tight pores and filled with antioxidants!  Oh and not to mention, you will look like the Hulk from the green pigment in the spirulina (but only when you have the mask on-it does not dye your skin).

-1/2 tsp spirulina powder

-1 ripe mashed banana

-splash of fresh lemon juice

Spirulina is great for the whole body (you can ingest it too)- it has more antioxidants than blueberries.  It can help lesson the effects of sun damage, while reducing the appearance of fine lines.

For the mask, mash the banana, add the spirulina, lemon juice and apply to the face.  Keep on for 10-15min.  So simple.  Your skin will thank you!

This next face mask takes us back a few years to the Aztecs and is known as the “World’s Most Powerful Facial”!  It is simply two ingredients.

Pulsating Puddy

Equal parts:

-100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay

-Apple Cider Vinegar41015 107 //DIY// Facemasks

Mix ingredients together in a non-metal bowl to form a smooth paste.  Apply 1/4in to 1/2in to the face.

41015 108 //DIY// Facemasks 41015 109 //DIY// Facemasks

The awesomeness of this facial is that you will feel your face tingle or pulsate as the clay dries.  Leave on the skin anywhere from 10-20min.  Remove with warm water.

**This is one of the more difficult masks I have done to get off.  Just be patient with it.  The clay will come off as it softens back up from the warm water.**

If your face is a little red this is normal from the pulsating invigorating feeling you felt while the mask was working its magic on your face.

Whether you want to explore the route of the Hulk, feel pulsating sensations and/or get your face ‘drunk’, your face will sure be thankful for the time you took to keep your face bright fresh and shedding away that winter layer!

Whether you think it is fair or not, how you present yourself is very important, especially in the professional setting.  It affects how others perceive your intelligence, education and capabilities.  From the very first glance, it can make or break whatever follows.  Leading with the right foot, is your most important asset and tool to help grow your business, gain quick respect or keep good rapport in the business world with clients and colleagues.

This standard isn’t only apparent when meeting someone, but also with how you present yourself to others through advertising materials.  In this day in age, just a name on a business card is almost something out dated.  We are living in a more technological driven society where visuals are everything.  From Business Websites, to Billboards, to Professional groups like, LinkedIn; images are thrown into our faces daily.  All of these forms of advertisement, most likely have a face or at the very least a visual of some kind attached to it.  It is better to have more than just a word to remember something by, the most attachments you can create to a brand the better…so back to those business cards.  It is very common for business cards to have a picture on them and your LinkedIn profile to not have a picture you would also have as your main profile picture on Facebook.

Your career is your lifeline and that lifeline deserves the best representation of you…a professional headshot.  Leave the iPhone photos for facebook, we can all tell it was a selfie with bathroom lighting and attempted from 20 different angels.  Be as professional with your career as the face you want to lead you, getting a professional headshot is one of the best things you can do for your professional outlook.  They say a picture tells a thousand words.  You wouldn’t want one of those words to be negative now would you?

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!”

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.
