About Your Professional Photographer

I'm Emily,

I’m great at awkward,

unless I have a CAMERA IN MY HAND.

It’s like my security blankie. 

My goal is collaborating with you to design fine art design customized fine art for you! Whether it adorns your walls, or decorates your end tables, I'm a believer that your photos should tell stories and show emotions; memories for you to cherish.

Photographing your story is my favorite. I strive to capture the personality dancing in your child’s eyes as well as the bonds created between you & your partner.  Whether it's families starting new chapters in their lives, high school seniors getting ready to close one chapter to open another, or capturing the bond between you & your horse, my heart explodes with joy!


Let's create memories you will enjoy adorning your home.

My love for photography has always existed. A hobbyist since my teens, and then a mom-tog for more than a decade, I decided in 2018 to leave my corporate gig to chase my photography dream & spend more time with my daughter. In March 2022 I earned my Certified Professional Photographer certificate through Professional Photographers of America.

I have a fondness for Equine portraits and absolutely love capturing the hard work of the agricultural life.​ My love for all things rustic & country shines through in my style of work. Dirt roads, tall grassy fields & critters of all sorts fill me up with HAPPINESS.​

When I’m not behind the camera, I'm enjoying adventures with my kiddo. I'm also found hanging around the horse arena, scraping up time to put my nose in a book or catching a live music show. I'm a fan of all facets of COUNTRY MUSIC and believe a good song will hit your heart and soothe your soul.


My FAVORITE things?

S’mores, FALL WEATHER & bonfires.

Driving down a dirt road with

the windows down {and music up}.


The smell of a warm sweat on a horse after a good ride

& the aroma of fresh cut grass hay.

Sunflowers in bloom.

Socially enjoying a Jack & Coke.

Finding the perfect notebook.

Grandma sweaters & coffee mugs.

Oh! And coffee is needed for survival!


Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart.
