I’m Emily

I’m a native Oregonian who loves fresh air, is obsessed with mountains, and finds joy in capturing the little treasures of life.

This is my husband, Alex

He puts up with my shenanigans, makes me giggle, and encourages me to be a better person. We live in Newberg, Oregon and are slightly (very!) obsessed with German Shepherds.

SOme more about me…

For those of you wondering, the pronunciation of my last name is ji-GOO. It’s French. It’s fantastic. It’s so fun to say. I love it! (But love the man who gave it to me more!!)

I have been taking pictures since I was a kid, but really dove into photography about six years ago. Even though I started off just doing portraits, I have ventured into all different areas which include weddings, families, maternity, newborns, and events.

Taking photos honestly brings me so much joy! It is very special to be able to capture moments that may be easily missed in the craziness of life. In each photograph, I want to be able to reveal your true self. Your amazing & quirky personality, and to show you how so very precious and beautiful (or handsome) you are!

Here is more of my face…

As you get to know me, you will see that I am super silly (“a turkey” as Alex calls me), but I’m totally confident in who I am and who God has created me to be!

Artists are not creators. They are receivers. What seems like creation is the act of giving form to what he has received.
