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 Fall Family Session: The Collerans



This adorable family was such a joy to work with. Lauren and her husband Brian laughed through their session, even though baby Sadie was not loving the experience because she was in the midst of fighting off a cold. They’re the type of people I love working with- they don’t take things too seriously! At the end of their session, we were able to put Sadie in her carseat with snacks and an Elmo video and snap a few images of just Lauren and Brian …about 10 feet away from the car 🙂 Sometimes you have to improvise! Below are a few of my favorites from their session.


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.
