Boudoir, Maternity & Portrait Photography for Women

Jacksonville, Florida

A photoshoot with Emerald Photography is an experience you will never forget.  It will give you a new perspective of yourself as your fearlessly embrace your strength and beauty.  You are worthy of investing in yourself and I am here to help you build your legacy.

"The human body is a work of art and it's my responsibility as an artist to boost confidence in everyone and every body I photograph.  It is very important to me to offer a safe place for people to feel vulnerable and raw so they may see themselves the way I see them through my lens.  I find it very special to show someone the person that they have been building their entire life, in a different dynamic so they can see both the strength and fragility of who they are in a single image."

EXPERIENCE

what we offer

Emerald Photography is a full experience portrait studio. We offer complete design and 
direction with all photoshoots, from beginning consultation to final product purchase & delivery. 

We start with a questionnaire & a quick phone call to help me understand how you want to be photographed.  This is a great time to ask & discuss any questions.

Between our first call and your shoot, you will receive guidance and instruction for wardrobe decisions.  I will also be noting what set designs will fit the aesthetic we are trying to accomplish in your shoot!

Upon arriving for your shoot, my professional hair and makeup team will be ready to pamper you right to your photoshoot.  I only work with the best licensed individuals!

During your shoot I will guide you through many different poses to offer plenty of variety for your images.  Be sure to stretch! 

I have carefully sourced on the best professionals to retouch images according to my editorial style editing.  I always put my finishing touches on before you approve them.

My favorite part is when my client sees their images for the first time!  It's ok to love them all! This studio finds the most value in printed photographs! So, there are plenty of sample products for you to choose from to best display your art.

I am a portrait photographer who focuses on the beauty of the body at all stages of life. 

       It's important to be apart of creating positive change with body love and acceptance.  Our studio is a place for clients to feel strong, safe and confident.

This studio and brand are built on helping to break industry standards and media idealization of what a "perfect" body looks like.  I invite anyone to join me creating visual art in my studio.

So, why choose 

emerald photography ? 

Private Studio Space

I value privacy very much and have curated the studio to reflect just that.  I have carefully sourced who and what companies I work with when it comes to the handling of any images being retouched or printed.  I want my clients to feel safe knowing their images are protected.

Professional Posing
& Technique

Personal Touch

Continued education is very important to me whether it's a new technique, practicing posing or configuring new lighting set-ups and styles.  There is nothing I enjoy more than sharpening my skills and broadening my exposure to all the new things I can apply to a shoot with my clients to create amazing images.

Something all my previous clients will tell you is that the time we spend together is personal.  I take what I do very seriously, but more importantly, I love to get to know my clients! Don't be surprised if we get too chatty and become buddies after.

"Stacey is an amazing photographer and an even more SPECTACULAR person! She is so fun to work with and has such a creative and artistic approach with her photography!  I can’t say enough about her professionalism and attention to detail.... although, it’s not a “stuffy” atmosphere at all (we spent a good part of the session trying to hold it together because we were having so much fun)!!!"

Hello Gorgeous!

* indicates required

I'd love to chat more about any session questions you may have before you schedule your photoshoot! Just grab a spot on the calendar below and we'll give you a call!

Hey there!

No, I shoot color as well but I LOVEEEEEEE black and white photography!  When you see your images at your appointment you will see color and b&w.  I like to present my brand with the things I love and monochrome images are a big part of that.  It allows you to really see yourself in a photograph and not be distracted by colors.

You can see colored images in the gallery links specific to what you may be interested in.

"When you photograph people in color you photograph their clothes.
But when your photograph people in black and white you photograph their souls!"

The Retainer Fee covers the time of the photoshoot, consultation prior to the shoot, professional hair and makeup artists, guided posing, the time of the photographer. When you do your Ordering & Reveal Session, that is when you purchase all of your products, digitals and prints at that time. No products are included in the Retainer Fee.

I do not like to take any truth away from the original image, but I do like to make sure the focus is on what we discuss in the consultation. How far I retouch images will be discussed during our consultation together. The Ordering & Reveal Session is when you will view your images.  While viewing images we can discuss any change requests you may have.
**Extra editing may result in extra fees.

I use a professional retouching service that does very minimal edits, then I put my artistic edits on them.  Everything is kept confidential and protected by legal contracts.

That's a firm NO. All images that are chosen have my artistic touch on them, along with my style of editing. I do not EVER offer raw files and my retouched files may never be edited by another party, not authorized by myself. I'd like to think you respect me enough and like my style and that's why you have hired me!

I would love to be able to offer my products at a cheaper rate because I believe EVERYONE should have beautifully printed photographs in their home, but that just isn’t a sustainable model for my business. I have very carefully sourced my products from all over the world and I stand behind their quality. I value the time and education I have put behind my passion and that holds true value to my brand and myself as an artist.

My digitals are the most valuable item I can offer because multiple copies can be made. I offer complimentary digitals with every fine art print.

Once you purchase your print resolution files you are free to print them wherever you would like, however, I cannot guarantee the quality of the printed items you receive. My personal labs are calibrated to my work and it is only then that I can control the quality and delivery of such products.

You will sign 3-4 contracts while working with me. First, you sign a contract for the session. It outlines all the details of the day and covers us both so we know what we can expect from each other. Next, you sign an ordering contract committing to what products you want to purchase and payment of those products. Lastly, I send a media model release after your reveal session so that you may decide what images, if any, I can use for print or web postings. I NEVER post anything without your permission. You can choose one image, all of them or none of them, it is entirely up to what you are comfortable with. And lastly, if you choose to do a payment plan, you will need to sign a contract outlining due dates and interest fees. Sorry guys, I know it's a lot of legal stuff but it keeps us all protected.


The Ordering Contract outlines your commitment to pay the agreed upon total price and verify the product(s) that you order.  

No. My photography is copyrighted which means they may not be altered in any way. If you need something, contact me, I am always open to discussion. I LOVE when my clients want to share their images.    

Yes! If you purchased the digital images, they include a print release which means they are yours to do whatever you wish. See something you like that I posted? Here's the deal- if you like something I did, sure, you can repost it as long as there is credit to me and the image is not altered! You may not post any of my work unless you are me or one of my clients. Special permissions may be granted case to case, just message me. I'm easy to work with ;)
