Hi there! I’m Emily – wife to James and mama to our sweet Graham and Simon, who was born at 26 weeks gestation, making us parents of Irish Twins! We live in the Indianapolis area with our mini golden doodle, Ellie, who is quite possibly the most adorable AND most spoiled dog of all time. I love running our photography business, sipping a latte, decorating + renovating our home, taking long walks, and enjoying hot yoga classes. I love to travel, but am a homebody at heart. Light a candle and give me fresh flowers and I’m instantly in a better mood. I have a passion for a simple, yet joy-filled home and can be easily overstimulated by too much “stuff.” I’ve always had a love of all things baby – from being 5 years old and forcing my mom to stroll through the aisles of the Target baby section so I could select what gear I’d use if I had a baby, to once-upon-a-time plans of becoming an OB/GYN, and obsessing over A Baby Story on TLC. This new chapter of our lives has been so, so incredible. We are learning, transitioning, loving, and adapting to this new life of ours. I think honesty and openness is huge for sharing about motherhood, so here you’ll find lots of great things along with the difficult things! It’s my hope you feel heard, supported, and inspired while here.
Here on this blog you’ll find little bits of our daily lives, a peek into what it’s like for us preparing for a baby, cultivating happiness in each day, finding joy in the little things, and honoring those who lead us here.
