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






Old Town Alexandria Family Session



I recently had the pleasure of spending one steamy July evening with the sweet Stinehart family. The occasion for their session was baby Carter’s first birthday, so he was the intended star of the show, but Lauren and Bradley quickly showed that they are equally photogenic! 

We had a great time touring through Old Town Alexandria along the gorgeous historic streets down to the waterfront. Despite it being one of the hottest days on record, even little Carter kept a happy face and we were able to enjoy a beautiful evening 🙂 It was so much fun getting to know them and I will forever be impressed with how much fun they made one of the hottest days on record.

Happy Birthday, Carter! 


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.
