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






Annapolis Fall Family Session



I have never met a more smiley baby than little Caroline! When I met with her and her parents, Margot and Blake, on a beautiful fall evening in Annapolis, she was grinning ear to ear. And from then on it didn’t stop!

I approach photo shoots with little ones like a ticking time bomb… I grab the happy face shots as quickly as possible because inevitably there is a meltdown! It’s not a problem, it’s just part of little ones being part of the mix! But Caroline delighted us all by giggling for their entire hour-long family session.

Thanks to Caroline being so entertaining, I didn’t get around to asking Margot and Blake more about themselves until the end of the session. It turns out they are helicopter pilots for the Navy! How cool is that?! I had a million questions to ask, but tried to contain myself. Needless to say, this is one awesome family and I am so glad I got to capture this season for them.


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.
