hey there!

Thanks so much for visiting! I’m Emily Keen Brandt, the owner and name-behind-the-initials of EKB Photography.  I specialize in newborn and family photography, and am passionate about documenting stories that are authentic, organic and show the love & connection you share.

My husband, David, and I have two sweet girls and two loud cats. We are originally from Missouri, but have spent the last 15 years in Mississippi, and are relocating to Phoenix AZ in the fall! This is our last move and I’m excited to start rebuilding my business in the desert sunshine! (Psst, I will be offering booking discounts for any AZ clients booked before 2020).

If you are located in the Phoenix area, and are looking for original family photos that tell your story, drop me a line and I’d love to chat!

Sometimes I like to force my kids to take pictures and blog about it. See those stories here!
