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






Winter Jefferson Memorial Session: The Bliss Family



One of the best parts about my job is getting to watch families grow and grow up. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Julian and his sweet parents many times and it is so much fun getting to see him change! From a little guy who could hardly sit up to a walking, talking little boy, he is growing up before my eyes. This winter family session was on a particularly cold morning, but the Bliss crew took it in stride and laughed about it the entire time. Next year, we will plan for a little earlier in the season 😉

See Julian’s spring one year session in Old Town Alexandria here.


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.
