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 Maternity Session: Angela + Ben



Angela and Ben were delighted when they learned their visit to Washington, DC would coincide with peak Cherry Blossom season! I was thrilled we’d be able to document this exciting time in their lives during such a special time in our beautiful city, especially because the blossoms only last a few days.

But, in typical DC fashion, the weather went crazy (65 degrees one day, snowstorm the next…) and the Cherry Blossom peak dates were moved back. Luckily, Angela and Ben are the types of people who go with the flow! They had a great attitude when they stepped off their plane to chilly temps and fully embraced our new plan to hold their maternity session at the Jefferson Memorial. 

Angela and Ben, thank you for being such a joy to work with! Your southern warmth made our sunrise session so much fun. Congratulations on your growing family and thank you for being so much fun to work with 🙂 


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.
