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.

{Angels Blessingway} Anna- McKinney- Allen Photojournalist

I had the honor of photographing this blessingway (similar to a baby shower) for angels, or babies who left too early, either by way of miscarriage or still birth. It was a beautiful and moving tribute to these angel babies who should be here with us. Thank you for the honor ladies.

{Hold me} Rockwall- Rowlett- Garland Newborn Photographer

I had the pleasure of doing this little man's newborn photos. He however, wasn't sure about that plan! We worked for about 3.5 hours at getting him to sleep soundly, but he would have none of it. He just wanted to be held, and with mom being so warm and comforting, I would too! We did manage to get some good ones though. I hope you enjoy these, mama!


A Smile!

Fairies in the Forest October Mini Sessions

Ok! I know everyone has anxiously been awaiting the details on this. PLEASE READ THEM VERY CAREFULLY! I don't want anyone confused on how these mini's are being run. It is different than normal.

These mini sessions are actually mini parties. Why? Well, since the whole theme is "Fairies" you can't very well have a "Fairy"! There is something about multiple little girls running through the forest together that is so much more ethereal. I also have found that they play off of each other in their make believe and are far less concerned with the camera.

The mini sessions are intended for girls ages 1-7. Children are preferred to be walking, but MUST be crawling. If they are not sturdy on their feet, the parent must be willing to be hands on during the session as I will not be able to keep track of them. This is really the case for every child and parent, but especially the babies. I am not willing to go much older than 7 unless your child is small or unless you are booking a session with other girls who are also older. I don't want huge discrepancies in height!

I have been asked by a few moms about boys coming as elves or gnomes. I am totally fine with this, but it must be done with a group who is also ok with it. So, I would suggest booking with friends. If that is not possible, I am happy to check with the other parents in a particular session, but if anyone is not comfortable, it won't happen. I know... it sucks. You might convince me to just do a boy session though! My 5 year old would be very happy!

You have a couple choices on how you book your session...

Choice One: Book as a group. Each session will have 5-7 girls. You can get together with your daughter's friends and book a session. If you have 7 girls, that session is full. Anything less and there may be another girl or two added to the group, but you are guaranteed to be together. Groups are given preference if space is available. Once sessions are full, they are full, so don't wait! The cost is per child. If you book for 5, you pay for 5.

Choice Two: Book individually. This simply means you book for your child(ren) individually. You will be put with 4-6 other girls for your session of choice, as long as it is still available. The cost is per child, not per session.

Confused yet? I hope not! So what are you getting....

Each session is 30 minutes. They are scheduled every hour. You should plan to be there about an hour. Arrive at the scheduled time, do a little prep work, make sure everyone is ready, begin the session, and then when we are done, make sure everyone takes home what they came with and leaves my items behind.

Each child (or their parent) will receive 5 digital images. You will receive at least 2 images of just your child. The other three will have your child in it, but may also contain images of the other children in the group. For samples of what I mean by this, please visit my website at http://www.earthmamaphotography.com/ Click portrait galleries and then mini sessions. These images will be emailed to you in high resolution with a print release. I am happy to try and accommodate images of siblings as well. Please just ask.

All sessions will take place at Pranther Park in Highland Park. This is near SMU in Dallas. You will be given the exact location upon booking. I will have wings and flower wreaths available. The costume portions need to be yours. I am happy to offer suggestions on where to obtain them or how to make them if you desire. Thankfully, it is October, so there is not a short supply of costumes!

Each spot in a session is $30 plus sales tax. I accept check or cash. Payments are due upon booking. Group bookings must be paid as a group. This could be as simple as mailing 5 checks in the same envelope. As long as I receive all the payment for that group at the same time, I am satisfied.

NOW the important part... the session times!

Sunday, October 11, 2009
4pm session
5pm session

Saturday, October 17, 2009
12pm session
1pm session
2pm session
3pm session
4pm session

Friday, October 23, 2009
8am session
9am session
10am session

Those are the only session times available at this point. PLEASE REMEMBER... I am on call nearly every day of my life for births. Babies do not wait. If I must attend a birth, your session will be rescheduled. It will be rescheduled on the same day of the week that it was originally scheduled and for the same time. I will do my best to accommodate your group as best as possible. If it is not possible, you will be offered another mini session time or a gift certificate for an individual session. I appreciate your understanding on this matter and that at times, very little notice can be given. I will do my best!


Booking will begin at 9am on Friday, September 18th. No sessions will be held or booked prior to that time. This allows for groups to be formed over the course of the week. I know it takes time to coordinate efforts. I will not be answering the phone or emails on the 18th. You should call/email and leave your name, phone number, number of sessions you are booking, and your first and second preferences for day and time. I will go through the calls and emails in order and get back to you by Sunday evening. You will then be given either a confirmation or an alternative, depending on how fast they go.

{Tiny Twins} Fort Worth- Grapevine- Irving Newborn Photographer

I had the honor of meeting William and Charlotte. They are so beautiful and tiny. I am continuously amazed at how small our babies begin. They grow so fast. These two were surrounded by a whole bunch of amazing women who jumped at the chance to take care of them and one very strong and amazing mama. I was honored to be there.

As it always is with twins, it is a challenge to get them sleeping at the same time. We tried our hardest though and I am really excited about some of the images we captured. Without further ado, here they are!

I seriously laughed out loud at this one. William has his foot in Charlotte's face as we were snuggling them together. It didn't faze her at all. She is used to it!
And William in an equally dangerous place ;)
The position that created the above dangerous spots!

{Rain, rain, go away} Rockwall- Rowlett- Garland Baby Photographer

So I seriously lucked out the other morning. Fall, or at least the rain, seems to have arrived here in Dallas. It poured rain all night and I was really worried we would have to reschedule our 3 mth session with my little man, Carter. Dawn broke that morning... and it was pouring. Sigh. I called his mama, and she said that it was sunny in Rockwall, so we were on! Seriously, it had to be a God thing, because there was this wall of black clouds and rain that stopped at Firewheel and we were blessed with cool weather, diffused sunlight and a great morning.

I know his mama is anxiously awaiting these sneak peaks... Enjoy!


One of my favs from the morning...


Look at that laugh! When I see it, I have to smile too...


I never get tired of sleeping babies...


Big hugs from one beautiful mama. Next time Dad will have to be in town to join us.

{Grandparents are the best} Dallas- Highland Park- University Family Photographer

Remember baby Caroline? Well, she is back, and this time with two adoring grandparents! They were here to visit and we couldn't pass up the chance to get them loving on her. We ofcourse got mom and dad in the mix too. It was a beautiful afternoon and we got some lovely pictures of the whole family.

This one just struck me. She is the size of grandpa's hand! Amazing how small we begin on this earth. I adore the way he gazes at her. If that isn't love, who knows what is!

This is the theme of our session... looking at the baby! It was pretty funny. I would say "Now look at the camera" and everyone would, except Grandpa. That baby girl was just so much prettier than I was. LOL! And isn't grandma gorgeous! I couldn't believe she was a grandma.
Remember the theme? More of that... in a beautiful location. This one looked unreal to me. Beautiful family!
And a group shot... everyone looking at me this time!

{A fun spot} Plano- Allen- Wylie Family Photographer

We headed to Allen to an outdoor shopping mall for this session. I wasn't sure how well it would work out, but I loved it! We did have some REALLY close calls with the sprinklers. It was almost like someone was watching us and having a good laugh. But we managed to stay dry and get some great pictures. We had grandma and grandpa, their two daughters and their hubbys, and two grandbabies. It was so fun!

The whole family-

Loved this one of Grandma and Grandpa
The sweetest boys... I wish my kiddos lived closer to their cousins. It is so much fun!
And this image I had to include so you could all here the story of what happened when I got home with this picture. I was going through our session and was looking at this one when my 5 yr old wandered over. This is how the conversation went from there...
Zach: "Ummm, is that a duck?"
Me: "Yep!"
Zach: "What is wrong with that baby! Is he just TRYING to be mean!"
Me: Laughing uncontrollably
Zach: (dirty look) "That duck isn't real, is it. Ugh. Don't tell anyone about this, mom." (walks away)
It was so funny. He was seriously worried about that duck. My guess is that the look on the duck's face contributed to the misunderstanding. I laughed, though. OH!
