“Emily was our wedding photographer, and she did such a great job that I knew I wanted her to be the one to capture our child’s first moments “on film” as well. It was a no brainer. I wanted to make sure she’d be available, so I contacted her soon after our 12 week ultrasound to book our newborn session. Actually, I think Emily knew I was pregnant before most of my co-workers did!
Emily did not disappoint. As a new mom, you’re always a bit nervous handing your newborn baby over to someone else, but Emily was so gentle and so experienced that I relaxed right away. My only regret is that I did not bring a pillow with me, as I should have taken advantage and had a nap while she worked her magic.”
“Our family has enjoyed a variety of different session types with Emily as our photographer from holiday sessions, outdoor family session, to our utmost favourite–a newborn session–after the arrival of our third child. Emily consistently demonstrates creativity and impresses us with the attention to detail that she pays to her art. Each set of images that she has created of our family is unique and they have always overwhelmed us with emotion and appreciation. Emily’s experience has enabled her to get the highest quality possible for us while also remaining calm and encouraging with our high-energy toddler, supportive to us as new parents, and tender and so loving with our newborn. We enjoyed each session that we have shared with Emily and are deeply grateful for the time that she has put in to getting to know our family. Emily’s photographs will exceed your expectations, her positivity and big heart are contagious, and she will surprise you time and time again with her skills as a photographer.”
“Emily was very professional, passionate and very creative. She was very gentle, patient and caring for our little guy from the beginning until the end of the session. Driving from Burlington to Ottawa was worth the drive for such precious moments she captured.”

“My husband and I could not be happier with the newborn photos we had done with Emily. She was so gentle and patient with our daughter, Nora, and the pictures are even more beautiful than we imagined they would be. Emily is a rare talent and we look forward to our next session with her.”
“We contacted Emily to capture our first pregnancy and to also take newborn photos. At the maternity session, Emily’s friendly and professional demeanour put us at ease. The photos were stunning. After the birth of our daughter, Emily again took wonderful photos during the newborn shoot. Her care and gentleness with our daughter surely contributed to the lovely photos. We even learned a few calming tricks for babies from her! Between the maternity and newborn sessions, Emily perfectly captured our feelings of joy and love during this special time and we are so glad to have these photos to look back on as our daughter grows.”

“I found Emily & Diamondview Photography through an “Ottawa NICU” Google search. Our baby girl has some congenital complications and we wanted to have a photographer that not only has experience with fragile babies, but with the NICU should it come down to it.
I thought for sure that given how late I was in my pregnancy (30+ weeks) we’d be too late to get an appointment for maternity photos, but Emily was so accommodating and understanding with our situation. Not only did she reach back out to me right away, but she booked us in for both our initial meeting and photo session within two weeks! She made my husband and I feel completely at ease through the entire studio shoot and we left the session feeling great about the entire process – little did we know how amazing she’d made us look!
Regarding her in-home studio space: it’s perfect and so lovely! Amazing backgrounds, stunning dresses/fabrics for moms, and beautiful props/hats/etc for when our baby girl arrives! SO MANY OPTIONS! Emily has a lot of different final photo product options for clients to choose from also – from digital images to canvas prints, and all very reasonably priced. Not only does she know what she’s doing with her camera and post-editing, but her turnaround time is beyond fantastic!
All in all, we are so lucky to have found her and are excited to have her as our new family photographer from here on out!”
