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






Studio Family Session | The Doughertys



Rose is such a cutie patootie! She and her parents joined me for a modern studio session on Sunday.

Baby and toddler sessions are always fun because you never know what to expect. Shyness, melt downs, giggles, tears, blowing bubbles, yanking your head band off fifty times, dancing, a lot of snacks, etc. is all part of it and is why I love these sessions. Just like each child, each hour-long session is totally unique! If you’ve ever been nervous about doing a photo session with your family, please know that the whole spectrum of reactions from kids is normal and we always end up having a great time and coming away with adorable images.

Sammy, Joe, and Rose were the sweetest crew and I hope these springy images are a beautiful representation of their joyful family 🙂


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.
