Emma Hill Photography

Hi, I'm Emma.

I take photos because I don't have many of me as a kid.

I take photos because it's my way of documenting life's stories and weird details, like the bright colours I had in my hair when I was 19, the amazing time I had with my best friend sitting in her room doing "nothing", or the way I had the lounge room set up six years ago. Each photo replaying a whole host of memories in my mind, transporting me back to that moment in time, and bringing all of the feelings with it.

I take photos because I know how good it can make our kids feel, seeing themselves in photos, and how it can give them a sense of belonging.

I crave capturing the beauty in real life, without needing to run around and clean up, or make the kids wear their best clothes, bribing them to smile or hide all of the "humanness" before we freeze time in a photo (sometimes easier said than done - the conditioning to have everything picture perfect is strong in all of us!)

"Hi Emma, wanted to thank you again for the beautiful photos, we love them all! You made us all feel relaxed and I love that you played with Ava for her to become more comfortable. I love the photo you got of her cheeky smile showing off her blue eyes.

Would absolutely recommend you to anyone, thank you so much for such beautiful photos!"

"It isn't just Emma's work behind the camera that is amazing. My 3 year old was far from cooperative at times, and Emma was fantastic at playing, communicating and making her feel special which truly reflects in the photos. This professional yet personal approach continued all session with every family member, making the whole experience so relaxing and enjoyable. I can not recommend Emma enough. Thank you very much for capturing such precious memories we will treasure forever"

"I love that you didn't push for any unnatural posing or positons and just went with the flow. It made the session really relaxing and enjoyable. I would normally feel a little intimidated with someone coming into our home to take photos, but you made it a really enjoyable experience.

Couldn't love the photos any more, thank you so much xx

"The photos are truly fabulous Emma. I love that you somehow captured the in between moments. It is really beautiful to see myself without the normal critical thoughts that I would have once subjected myself too. I just see me as a 44 year women instead ... and she is pretty great. So thank you for capturing this. You also completely hit my brief and I sooooooo am looking forward to using these in my socials. I'm very grateful!"

"Emma has an extraordinary eye for hidden beauty. She has taken a simple product and given it absolute star quality with her timeless photography. These photographs have certainly restored my confidence in my brand. Not only is Emma patient and calm, but she is able to work on a whim and was able to deliver so much more than I asked for. I am thrilled to share her work on my online business pages. Emma, you need to quit you day job! Your photography skills are next level! I look forward to future collaborations."
