I'M emily! wife,  mom,  photographer,  and friend

hey, y'all!

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!

I'm Emily - wifey, new mommy, fur mommy, and documenter of life through photography.

I love the simple things in life: oreos, front porches, and Netflix. My true passion is serving others through the art of photography. When I'm not capturing moments, you can catch me snuggled up with the family, enjoying a good comedy, or yelling "Hail Southern" with other Georgia Southern Alumni! 

I strive to capture the authenticity of your love story and all the special moments in your life. 

Grab a diet coke and some oreos, pull up a chair, and let's chat about you!

Faith, family, and other "F" words

Where I find inspiration:

01. FAITH

I am a believer first. Knowing Jesus has changed my life and I strive to share His grace by serving others with love.

He spoke often on love and service. It is my hope that, through His example, I demonstrate that to my clients. 

He gives my life purpose and meaning.

02. FAMILY

I married my college sweetheart, Chris. Through the ups and downs, he has continued to be my best friend and biggest cheerleader - always encouraging me to pursue my passion and follow my dreams. We are new parents to our beautiful daughter, Aubrey.

Whether it is my small family, or parents & siblings, each inspire me to be kind and work hard.

03. FUR BABY

Our adorable miniature poodle, Lucy, keeps me company when I'm working from home. We adopted her 6 years ago, and I probably love her more than a person should love a pup. 

She loves snuggles, belly rubs, and treats (we don't call her "Chunky" for nothing...). 

She is our first baby and always our friendly "welcome home!"

04. FRIENDS

I have been blessed with the most incredible group of friends. They are my words of encouragement and the extra push I need to be a girl boss. 

Each beautifully different, they inspire me to enjoy each moment and to be creative while working.

Where I find inspiration:

05. FLOWERS

What's not to love about fresh flowers? It still amazes me that something so simple can bring me such joy. 

They are often so feminine and romantic, which inspires ERP to capture real, delicate, and intimate moments.

My favorite? Peonies. Duh.

Where I find inspiration:

06. FOOD

Ya girl loves food, what can I say. I love how food brings people together... how the smell reminds you of other times... how the taste can put a smile on your face (unless you're eating my cooking...). 

I want ERP moments to be like food - bringing people together, reminding you of happy times, and putting a smile on your face. My favorite? Oreos and French Fries... YUM!

Faith, family, and other "F" words

Where I find inspiration:

07. FRILLIES

Ok, so I'm not sure it's really a word, but I love all the delicate things in life: calligraphy, lace, and florals. 

I often find inspiration in quotes, vintage apparel, or antiques. 

Faith, family, and other "F" words

Where I find inspiration:

08. FUN

My biggest inspiration is having fun. Whether it is traveling to new, exciting places or watching a good comedy show (John Crist, anyone?) 

I love that photography allows me the freedom to have fun. The best times are connecting with new people and creatively telling their story!
