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






Cake Smash: Dylan Turns One



Rookie of the year! Baby Dylan was presented this award by his two biggest fans, Mom and Dad, aka Andrea and David 🙂

I love Andrea’s idea to incorporate their family’s love of watching the Nationals (and Dylan’s love of saying the word “baseball”) into his first birthday cake smash session! What a great way to remember this season of their lives, not only now having a one year old, but as a family enjoying their fun life together! 

Dylan’s favorite part seemed to be the snacks element of a baseball game (ditto, Dylan!) because many goldfish crackers were used to keep this speedster within our set up 🙂 Baby and family sessions are always unpredictable and therefore leave everyone laughing hysterically which is why I love them so much, especially with the awesome Zito family!

Happy Birthday, Baby Dylan!  Check out his three month shoot in his rock-n-roll nursery here.


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.
