“I feel really lucky to have worked with Emma for my headshot session. She was gracious and patient, helping me meet myself through the emotion and vulnerability that was rising up on that particular day. 

I felt so grateful when looking through the gallery she provided, because I saw myself in the photos. They felt honest. I think this genuinely would not have been possible without Emma’s emotional sensitivity, technical skills and the way in which she brings this stabilising and clarifying energy into the room for you to find yourself within.

Based on my experience from the beginning of the process to the very end, I would highly recommend Emma’s services. Her work is expressed with spirit, clarity, authenticity and wisdom. These values were exactly what I was looking for when I booked in with her, and I am grateful to say these are my headshots.”

Brett Robin Wood, Creative Wisdom

“Emma… has a stunning blend of technical expertise and warm heart, which made for a very effective and enjoyable photo shoot. Not only that, the end to end process, from first conversations, to shoot, to selection process, was so impressively managed. Most importantly, the photos were everything I’d aimed for. Highly recommended.”

“Amazing experience with Emma, she has a way of making you feel completely comfortable and confident within the first few minutes of meeting her, the calm energy during this experience is unmatched and I loved the outcome of the photos!”

Penelope Simmonds, Body Wisdom Therapy

“Emma was such a delight to work with. She enabled me to feel relaxed and supported allowing us to get some beautiful photos that I love and will help me with my new website.

Incredibly professional and super efficient. She brought a beautiful warmth to the photo shoot which allowed me to relax – which was big for me as I hate having my photo taken and I blink a lot in photos!! The photos were gorgeous and exactly what I was after.

Would definitely recommend Emma to anyone who needs a great eye, beautiful photos and a warm and supportive environment to do it in.

Thanks again Emma, it was lovely working with you.”

“There’s something very special about Emma. Em is a whip smart woman, deeply empathic and has an understanding and sensitivity that creates a magical field of creativity and connection that’s well beyond the point-and-shoot of a camera.

Em has a genuine interest in her clients and who their clients, audience, or customers are.  For me, Emma helped uncover the essence of what it is I was trying to create and in turn so beautifully captured the essence of my service-based business.

Emma created an environment that was so comfortable, nurturing and creative and I felt really supported and guided in the entire process. Em easily creates this field of safety, connection and encouragement and her playful, curious and inquisitive nature relieved any stress I had about having my photos taken for my business.

I couldn’t recommend Emma enough for anyone who wants to capture the essence of their heartfelt work in the world.”

Thank you Emma x”

“Emma is fabulous, easy to work with… and she listens for what you truly need in your shots.  Oh WOW. They are beautiful.  Love the composition, the light… the relaxedness. What a team!”

Vanessa Madrid

“Emma is a true talent! She has a wonderful way to communicate & direct the shots, but always ensuring you feel confident! I loved working with Emma & would highly recommend anyone that needs portrait shots to work with her.

As a fellow actor, she has a great way of helping you get into character which then produces a beautiful shot, full of depth & life. Emma is a soft & kind soul, which really makes you feel comfortable to be around her & to collaborate on ideas. 

I am more than happy with how our two shoots have turned out & will definitely book Emma again for when I need a fresh set of shots.

Emma is under-ratedly the best in the business for headshots.”

“I had a great experience with Emma and Your Inner Light Photography. I did a branding shoot with her for a new business I’m launching.

Emma asked really thoughtful questions so we’d get lots of shots to use in a variety of places. She also gave great recommendations for shoot locations.

On the day of, she made me feel so comfortable. Not awkward at all, like with some other photographers. Plus, the results are fantastic. I definitely recommend her!”

“Absolute first class experience with Your Inner Light Photography.  Emma took the most amazing headshots of my 8 year old daughter.  I could not be happier with the photos and the whole process from beginning to end was amazing.”

Christie Jordee review

Christie Jordee

“I really wanted a real, natural, relaxed headshot, but as I’m not used to being in front of the cameras, Emma had her work cut out for her.  She made me feel so at ease, and you see that in my photos.

The other thing I LOVED is no flashes, all natural lighting and out about in the local neighbourhood with brilliant textured backgrounds.  Totally would recommend.”

Celia Crawford, Chinaclay

“Emma was absolutely wonderful to work with for this shoot.  She truly took the time to get to know what makes our little business tick, and the resulting photos are testament to this.

Emma, thank you for your hard work and representing Chinaclay so authentically.  You’re an absolute star.”

Monica O'Brien, Creative Edge Coaching

“Over the years I’ve often needed headshots or photographs taken of myself or people I have worked with.  More often than not, it’s been a stressful experience, so when I recently engaged Emma to do some new pics for me, I was pleasantly surprised with the whole experience.  Not only did Emma enable me to feel relaxed, but she also delivered photographs that I can actually use!

Emma is an artist.  She has that unique ability to capture the essence of her subject in a way that resonates authentically.

I highly recommend Emma of Your Inner Light Photography.  (PS. Thank you, Emma, for making this middle-aged woman look half decent. :-))”


“Oh my gosh.  We are blown away.  Wow.  WOW.  We love them.  You’ve captured so much story.  And her inner light. We are very grateful for the positive experience she has with you.

You are a magician, creating such a safe, creative space for play and discovery. You connect with kids in the most authentic and beautiful way, allowing the same to emanate from them.”
