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






Washington DC Yoga Session | Nikki


Jefferson Memorial, Washington, DC

The morning before Patrick and I moved out of our little downtown DC apartment (we’re still in the area, just outside the city), I met Nikki for a sunrise session at the beautiful Jefferson Memorial. It was one of the first brisk mornings of the fall, but we embraced the cool air and started shooting just as the sun rose. Nikki is a yoga teacher and I’ve had the pleasure of taking her classes over the past few months. The first thing you notice about her is her sweet smile and warmth 🙂 Paired with her restorative, calm yoga classes, she is a wonderful teacher and I highly recommend her if you’re in the area and looking for an instructor! She is also the co-founder of an awesome online shop called Nourish & Refine. Their mission is to empower women to prioritize self-care offering locally, women-made products and encourage wellness through community events. Check it out (and see some of my photography on their site)!


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.
