About EMP...

Earth Mama Photography is dedicated to capturing those memories so they last forever. I specialize in birth photography, but also love portraiture for your pregnancy, newborn or family. I try to use natural light and shoot on location. This allows my canvas to be the beauty of the world around you. I try to achieve whatever look you may be hoping for, making each portrait a cherished keepsake, unique and inspired. EMP only offers digital packages, allowing you the ability to show your photos to friends and family online.

Elizabeth Boyce is a mom to four beautiful children and has had a camera in her hands since her oldest was very young. She began photographing births for her doula clients about 4 years ago, before it was even popular! After many requests, she expanded into portraiture. She can't decide what she loves the most. Birth photography is photojournalistic and tells the story of a miracle. Portraiture captures a unique moment that may never happen again. Each is special in it's own way and make her better at what she does... capturing your memories.

Before and After

I could have easily titled this post a lot of things, such as, "Why it is important to hire a skilled portrait photographer" or "Don't hang a baby from a tree" or "Reason #307 of why I don't give out unedited images". I figured before and after says it all!

The following images are an example of a before and after. They are also an example of a composite. A composite is when a photographer combines two images and blends them together to create one. In this instance, I took the image of the baby being supported by moms front arm and one where her arm was removed and blended them together. I then edited out her back arm, straightened the image, and then added a background to add depth. From that point, I did my normal amount of editing.

Please remember that half of your photographers job is editing your images. It takes time and skill and know how to acheive a polished image. It is likely that when you see an image of a baby hanging from a tree, that image was a composite. Please don't attempt it!

Remember that when you pay for your custom portraiture, you aren't just paying for my time at our session. You are paying for the time I have spent learning these skills and applying them to create unique images from your session!

{Beautiful Morning} Frisco- McKinney- Plano Child Photographer

I had the joy of meeting up with Eli and his parents for our 6 mth session. Time flies way too quickly! We were able to get some great smiles out of him. The funny part was when he was totally stone faced. A moving truck pulled up and the moving guys hoped out. He turned to them and gave them the biggest smile ever! We thought we were going to have to hire them to help us!

He was an angel though and I am so happy to share a few...


Couldn't decide on this one...

{A Hot Afternoon} Rowlett- Rockwall- Garland Family Photographer

This session was originally scheduled for March, but this sweet little man couldn't stay well! Fortunetly, we were finally able to schedule our session. It turned out to be a very hot and humid afternoon and he wanted nothing to do with it. Poor baby! In the end, a game of peek a boo won him over and we got some of the sweetest smiles ever!

{Goofy Girl} Dallas- Highland Park- Plano Child Photographer

Little Lucy Kate absolutely makes me laugh. I get so much joy out of editing her sessions. She has incredible expressions that just make me laugh out loud. She put up with quite a bit as we did our session. Not to mention that it was pretty hot out. We were able to capture some images of her doing the things she loved and included mom and dad in a few as well. I was so pleased with the results! Enjoy!

{Much Easier} Dallas- Highland Park- Downtown Child Photographer

At our three month session, Mr. William would not smile when I pointed the camera at him. Seriously! I was there 4 hours. We finally got some amazing smiles at the end of our session, but it took a while! Well, we juat finished his six month session and he was a total ham for the camera! It was fabulous and we finished our session in 60 minutes this time. What a change! He was just an angel and up for anything we threw at him. Loving these images!

Loved this one in color and BW...

{Afternoon at Arbor Hills} Plano- Frisco- Allen Child Photographer

I can't believe Miss Ella is 6 months old already! We went out to Arbor Hills Nature Preserve for her session. It was a very hot afternoon, but she did wonderfully. She has the most beautiful blue eyes and put up with us as we wandered around in the tall grass and trails. They provided the perfect contrast. Enjoy some of my favorites!
