Hello! Hola! Hi! My name is Emil and I am the LIME in Slice of Lime (no really, it’s my name, backwards!) After 15.5 years of working in the child welfare/social work world, I finally got the chance to leave that career behind in 2017 to pursue Slice of Lime full time. Slice of Lime celebrated 11 years of being in business in 2022 & I still have to pinch myself that this is what I get to do for a living! 

Through photography I have the honor of continuing to nurture my passion for connecting with teens & helping them embrace who they truly are. I believe to my core that “We all Shine Differently” and strive to ensure that each senior who steps in front of my lens feels SEEN & leaves their session with fun memories and feeling more confident.

There’s nothing more fulfilling than having a senior exclaim “OH MY GOD! ” after showing them the back of my camera during their session and the immediate pep in their step that follows.


From the beginning, Slice of Lime Photo has been a photography studio that is about empowering, building up, and inspiring every teenager that steps in front of our cameras. Establishing Core Values for Slice of Lime ensures we stay connected to our purpose and acts as a road map for all decisions we make about how we choose to run our business. 

We are NOT your one-stop-photography shop. We specialize in teen & senior photography; genres of photography about which we are passionate. Why? Because we believe PASSION is essential to creating our very best work and fueling our creativity.



Learning, exploring new perspectives, and never becoming complacent are important to us to allow Slice of Lime to continue to evolve and grow. We are committed to providing our clients with a unique photography experience that stands out from the crowd and we believe growth & education is essential to that.



In a world where conformity continues to be the prevailing message, we believe that each of us possesses our own quirks and strengths and those differences should be celebrated. It is our goal that every client we meet feels SEEN and welcome during the time they spend with us.

We all Shine Differently


For us, connection is about more than just making pretty pictures. We desire to connect with our clients, forge relationships with them, and make them feel truly unique and special throughout their experience with Slice of Lime.



We believe in giving back and using our gifts and talents for good. Volunteerism and involvement in our community is an integral part of who and what Slice of Lime has been from the beginning.

"What I loved most about my Slice of Lime experience is how unique it was from anything I’ve ever done. I had first discovered Slice of Lime on instagram, and Emil did not disappoint at all! Not only does Emil take amazing photos of you, but you have fun doing it and she makes it an amazing experience."

“OMG, Emil!!! I am in LOVE with these!!! They are beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Grateful I get them all because I could never pick. I can’t wait for her to see them! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!“

“All I can say is, wow! We are so in love with Mikaylas pics. Looking through them it all came back to us, the church and dodging cars and bugs to gallivanting through Shipoke casually sitting on stoops and bistro sets as if we owned the city! It was quite an experience. Your magic really came through in the finished product.”
