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






Maryland Family Lifestyle Session: Baby Teddy



Baby Teddy greeted me with a giggle as I walked in the door. He clearly knew today was his photoshoot because he donned a stylish, yet comfortable outfit for the occasion. A sharp button-down, elastic-waist linen trousers, and teeny tiny loafers completed the ensemble. I appreciate that he found that elusive line between formal and functional wear that we all often strive for.

After completing a set of images in his first requested location, his crib, he decided to loosen things up and strip down to his onesie for the rest of the shoot. With a belly and thighs like that, he was right to want to show them off!

In all seriousness, photographing Teddy and his parents Amanda and Kevin was a joy. They are a sweet, silly family that was happy to go with the flow. Baby sessions are always unpredictable, but that’s what makes them fun and I hope these images always remind them of this special time in their lives.

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.
