About the Location

Kurt and Karen Emmerich are the proprietors of Emmerich Tree Farm.  Kurt grew up on the land, having planted thousands of trees on the property with his parents and siblings in the 60’s and 70’s. With his studies at NYS College of Environmental Science and Forestry and vast experience running several nurseries and greenhouses of his own, Kurt is a bonafide tree expert. But it wasn't until 2005 when they purchased the land from Kurt’s family did their dream of owning and operating a tree farm truly begin.    Their unique cultural practices are designed to keep a sustainably steady supply of Christmas Trees.  

 They are continually struck by how supportive their customers are in helping to support sustainable local agriculture.

Conveniently located minutes from downtown Warwick, NY. A special thank you to Emmerich Tree Farm for hosting this event.

Our Charity Partner

Help us give a little towards a great cause. It is my honor to partner with the Magic Hour Foundation. More than half of your $249 booking fee will be donated directly to this important 501(c)(3) organization. Magic Hour Foundation is a national network of professional photographers who look to serve individuals and families fighting cancer. They do this by coordinating a photo session to celebrate the truly important things in life through photography. These charitable portrait sessions provide an opportunity for families to feel special and strong while they relax, smile and enjoy time with loved ones. Above all, Magic Hour strives to express compassion and love as we support them, no matter the outcome of their battle.

About the Photographer

Each family has a story to tell. A story that is steeped in chaos, laughter, and the everyday minutiae of family life. A story that is ultimately about love. Julia, a North Jersey documentary photographer, is passionate about capturing these stories to show families the love and compassion that they can’t often see for themselves.

Julia’s own story is one that is woven around the family and friends that are her creative inspiration. She is a wearer of many hats: daughter and little sister, food lover, aspiring yogi, karaoke diva, loving wife, and rock-star mom (no tiger here) to two little girls.

Photography has always been the channel through which she documents the different stories of her life and she has turned her passion into a business of doing the same for the families she works with. She continues to seek out new families and new stories to tell with the same care, kindness, and humor she uses to document her own family.

This is Julia Chang Photography’s 3rd year raising funds for Magic Hour Foundation. Having seen too many close family and friends silently battle cancer, Julia felt the grave importance of being able to bearing witness for these patients during such a monumental part of their lives. Magic Hour Foundation provides the means for cancer patients to have their stories told, their legacies documented through photography.
