Welcome! I'm a photographer, wife, mom to a sweet baby boy we call John-John, and am expecting another little boy in June.

I've started blogging to share the ideas, products, and discoveries that have made my life easier and more intentional in hopes they will do the same for you!

Hi! I'm Emily






Fall Engagement | Now Booking Fall Photo Sessions!


Wow, this summer has flown by! Temperatures are cooling down a bit in DC (thank goodness!), school is back in session, and September is right around the corner. I’m excited to share this engagement session and share that I’m now booking fall sessions for families and couples in October! Let me know if you’d like to schedule a time to get your family holiday photos done when we have a beautiful fall backdrop. 

Last fall, my sister Carla was approached to do an engagement shoot for a friend of a friend. Carla is a videographer (a common misunderstanding) but knew I would love working with Courtney. Carla came along as my assistant and from the minute we met Courtney and Doug at Loch Raven Reservoir, we knew we were going to have a great time. They were both so relaxed and didn’t take themselves or each other too seriously. We took advantage of the beautiful scenery and cool temperatures to take some cozy photos that I hope they enjoy for many, many years to come. That their adorable pup came along was the cherry on top to a beautiful autumn evening by the water. 

Love pups? Check out another fun shoot with Nicole + Brady. Love love? Take a peek at Matt + Jacklyn‘s anniversary session.


If you're looking for photography that is so much more than just gorgeous images, it's an experience that allows you to be fully present with the ones you love, you're in the right place.
