I'm Emily,

I’m great at awkward, unless I have a CAMERA IN MY HAND. It’s like my security blankie. 

My passion is collaborating with you to capture your memories.

Your photos should tell stories and show emotions; memories for you to cherish. I strive to capture the personality dancing in your child’s eyes as well as  bonds created between two people in love. I want to photograph your story.

Photographing your story is my favorite. Whether it's young families starting new chapters in their lives, or high school seniors getting ready to close one chapter to open another, my heart explodes with joy! Don't get me started on weddings... swoon!


My passion for photography has always existed. A hobbyist since my teens, and then a mom-tog for a decade, I decided in 2018 to leave my corporate gig to chase my photography dream & spend more time with my daughter.

I have a fondness for themed/styled photo shoots 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 striving to learn more about photography & 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} is a must.

Oh! And coffee is needed for survival! WANNA GRAB A CUP O' JOE?
