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.

Beautiful You CD's

Those who have booked a session will each be receiving a CD with their high resolution photographs on it. Each CD will be personalized for you with a photo and a short message. I thought I would post a quick picture of what your CD will look like. This is for my "model" who I did my test shoot with at the location for Saturday's event.

What you can expect...

As Beautiful You approaches quickly, I thought I would post a few samples of the last time I did this! It will give you an idea of what to look forward to. As of right now, we only have one spot left open. If you were hoping to book a session, please contact me quickly!

I have been asked several times if I edit out your "flaws". While I don't think any part of any woman is "flawed", I recognize you may not agree. So here are a few samples. The before picture is simply the photo taken straight out of the camera. I then go in and smooth your skin, removing wrinkles, blemishes, lines, etc. I define and sharpen your eyes, making them pop. If necessary, I may darken your lip color or eye shadows and define or lengthen your eye lashes. None of this is necessary, however, if you would rather have a more natural look.
FYI: You should be able to click on the picture to view it bigger and see more detail.

I can also give you photos a different look. They can be converted with filters into Black and White, Sepia, or similar color effects...

Fun afternoon in the city...

I had the chance to do a session in downtown Dallas today. It was a blast! They were so great to work with and up for anything as we traipsed around Dallas. Not to mention their little guy has some of the most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen. I got the chance to do some things a little differently than normal and I am hoping I caught their vision of what they were looking for. More to come guys!

I just had to post this outtake. It was so stinkin cute! I mean, who can resist a face like that!

Ooo La La

Allison offered awhile back to model for me if I ever needed a plus size model. HAHAH! Yeah. I laughed out loud too! Plus size, my butt! So I took her up on the offer. Little did she know that I would make her work for three hours. She claims to have had fun though. Hopefully she is happy with her photos and I am sure her hubby will be happy as this was his Valentine's day gift! I called this one "Ooo La La".

I think this one is my fav...

Eye popping blue eyes and red hair...

So I asked a few friends if I could borrow a house for a shoot and Jessie volunteered. Well little did she know that I would suck her in for photos! As I was shooting I kept noticing how beautiful she looked in the light. Her red hair and blue eyes just popped. I hope she loves them as much as I do, because she is just gorgeous.

This first one is my absolute fav...

A Stunning and Sexy Mom-to-be

I did a session for "E" today. WOW. She wanted some pictures of her that would make her feel beautiful. I hope we did that! She is being brave and letting me post a few samples, even though they are a bit "sexy". I assured her that only she would notice any flaws. The rest of us will just be jealous that we don't look half that good!

So without further ado...

A Cool Ice Storm

I just couldn't resist the chance to snap a few photos during the mini ice storm we had today. It was great light... late in the day and everything had a blue cast to it. These were a small tree in our front yard. Had to share!

A fun bunch of kiddos...

I had a session on Saturday morning with a really great family. They happen to be good friends, so I really didn't want to miss it. I got home from my birth and into bed around 4am and was back up and ready to go at it again in 4 short hours. We ended up going to the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve and did about a 2mi loop. Let me tell you... I was exhausted.

However, I was pleased as punch to come home and see what I captured. We just did the kiddos this go round. They were absolutely great. Even "S" the teen put up with my antics. Their outfits just called out for black and white images, so the sneak peaks are heavy in that area.

Our shoot covered just about everything...

Jumping off things...
Admiring a cute baby...
Sister smooches...
Goofing around... and btw, this is what most EMP sessions look like. Don't be fooled by all the well posed and smiling portraits of children!
Sitting on rocks, sunbathing...
Baby bits, ofcourse...
And walking. Lots of walking. This one was slightly posed, but they naturally would fall into birth order as they hiked through the preserve, just like this one. It was great!
So guys, enjoy! There is lots more to come. I am slowly digging myself out from the mounds of photos I have to edit!

Baby "L" made it!

I was called Friday evening to a birth that went through the night. It was amazing. "S" labored like a champ. She was calm and beautiful. "J", her devoted hubby, did an amazing job coaching her through her contractions. She achieved her goal of delivering naturally and has a beautiful new daughter "L" added to their family. Can I just say I love births! I really have the greatest job. I even made it home in time to run out the door to my 9am family session. I am TIRED, but so happy. Her are a few sneak peaks!

This is one of my favs. "S" had been told by her nurse that she shouldn't use the birth ball after her water broke. Well, she decided to anyway and fluid went everywhere! This is her laughing and "J" diving to help catch it with a towel. We got a good laugh... and didn't tell the nurse!

An absolutely wonderful moment... "J" got to catch "L" and put her on her mama's belly. His expression is so serious and intent. He truely loves that baby girl. Apparently he was able to do the same with his first and she was a bit slippery... he had a good grip this time!

During intense contraction right near the end, "S" needed "J" to hold both hands at the same time. What a team.
