Paducah Family At Home | The Curry Family by Emily Margaret

I love photographing families in their homes. The atmosphere is so much more relaxed and you can see more of the relationship dynamics. The Curry family is no exception and I want to be like them when I grow up and have children, with their cute home and backyard chicken coop. 

We hung out one Sunday afternoon this spring and took photos in Walt and Rachel's Paducah, Kentucky home. Their little boy, Will, had recently begun to sit up on his own, so we commemorated the occasion with some portraits playing in his room. Little moments like these mean so much more when you get to celebrate them just as they are. 

Life these days mostly revolves around the little one! When we are home, we like to play and hang out in the house and yard when the weather is nice. We have dogs and chickens, so caring for them also helps fill our days.

A Few Favorites from 2017 by Emily Margaret

Well, hello 2018! I'm totally late to the game with my year in review/new year's posts, but in my mind, that's what the whole month of January is for. It's for hammering out your goals, looking back at the last year, and seeing where you want to go.

And also trying really hard not to eat all the chocolate cookies your sister just made. Or is that just me?

Anyway, 2017 had my personal life kinda all over the place and I shot significantly less work than in years past. But in shooting less, I feel that it helped me put more thought into what I did shoot. So here's some of my favorite images from the year. They're not always the "technical" best, but they're my favorite because of the people, the tones, the emotion, and the moment. I also included the links to each photo set's blog post if you want to see more images from each shoot. I hope you enjoy!

Ashley & Jacob | Paducah KY Couples Photographer by Emily Margaret

How cute are these guys. Ashley and Jacob were so fun to work with and I loved hearing the story of how they met (which included hamburgers, a drive-in movie, and being high school sweethearts. I mean is that like stuff of a movie or what.)
