Iowa photographer based in Ankeny
I’m Emma, the photographer
for Emmarose Studio.
I have been doing photography since I was about five. I remember running around my moms house with a disposable Kodak camera demanding everyone pose for me.
I loved getting to capture the genuine moments between my family then, just as much as I love capturing the true nature of people today.

I consider my shooting style very candid. Posing is something that I have always found to be too formal- with a little guidance and a few jokes I’ll get a great photo. I would consider my editing style as rich, earthy, and moody.
My Passion For
Getting to capture the essence of someone's true self. My entire life I have always hated getting my photo taken because I felt like the person in the photo wasn’t me. I want people to not only feel like that person is truly them, but that they are beautiful just the way they are.
When you meet someone who you can't imagine your life without, you start to get an understanding of what truly makes you happy and what really matters in life.
I love capturing the moments between a couple that shows how in love they are. Not just through posed moments, but through the times when the couples don't even know I am taking a picture.
I am currently engaged to my highschool sweetheart and the two of us have a Bernedoodle named Bear and a kitty named Hanako.
We chose Ankeny because it is centrally located for our family, but it also is just a great town to have a family. I love being close to the city without having to live in the city.
Coffee is an essential part of my
I love to read, write, and watch The Real Housewives (preferably New Jersey, but Atlanta will do too.)
