Hi! I’m Emily!

I’m very unserious, I laugh and I dance around my house to music. I use a lot of parenthesis (I like to add tiny bits of info here and there) and exclamation points! Not because I’m loud, but because I’m enthusiastic. I love to run around with my son Jesse, snuggle my little Zac and catch up on various TV shows with my husband. I love cooking, eating, drinking coffee and wine, singing, reading and writing. I like to try to stay fit by running, swimming and doing yoga (that doesn’t mean I don’t love junk food, because french fries and chocolate chip cookies are my two biggest weaknesses!)

Why Photography?

I’m a long time lover of art and I can't help but see beauty in the world. Even before I was thinking about having my own kids, I was drooling over Anne Geddes and her amazing ablitiy to capture squishy new babies in peapods and rose petals. I took photography in school and was so excited about being able to capture emotions and feelings in photographs. I love that. When you look at a picture, you are taken back to those times and those feelings. They say ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ and as much as I am a lover of words, I love images that speak for themselves, that tell a story and make you feel.

I’m also a mom, so seeing the world through their little eyes has been an amazing adventure. I was told how fast it all goes and how I needed to savor those precious memories. So, I started taking pictures of every little detail. I fell in love with their little toes all over again, the wrinkles in their eyes when they smile, those chubby little thighs. Now my oldest is a kid, running around and making me laugh and I’m so grateful for all of those moments leading up to now, frozen in time for me to weep over when I feel he’s gotten too big.

Combining two things I love (making beautiful art and snuggling precious babies), I decided to take a leap and start my own photography business. And let me tell you, it’s been SUCH an incredible journey.
