“Sometimes i'll start a sentence and I don't even know where it's going.  I Just hope I find it along the way ”

Hey! Im Emily Jo!

-Michael Scott, The Office

My parents bought me my first handheld camera and have been my biggest supporters ever since. I got further involved in photography in high school where I learned how to shoot on a film camera and process my film in a dark room. That's where my passion came alive. I had a teacher that really invested in me and believed I could be something BIG one day. I started my photography business 6 years ago and have been capturing families, babies, weddings, and couples ever since! 

The reason I do what I do is by far, my family. My husband is a huge support to me and has always encouraged me to chase my dreams. He’s been there for me every step of the way and I wouldn’t be where I am today without him by my side. In April 2021 we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Penelope Jo into the world and she is the light of our lives. My biggest joy is being a mom and Penny will always be the greatest accomplishment of my life. Being a working mama to my rambunctious little toddler comes with its ups and downs but I’m truly so, so thankful! When I’m not taking photos or editing, you’ll find me chasing my silly Penny around, watching my newest reality tv obsession, or spending time with my hubby and mini australian labradoodle, Haddie Mae.
