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.

Sperry Family | Paducah KY Family Photographer by Emily Margaret

I love working with families because it's so fun to see how they interact together. When kids are involved, you're always going to have someone who's looking the other direction or making faces, but I think it adds more character and genuine personality to the images.

The Sperrys are one of the sweetest families I've had the privilege of getting to know over the past couple years. The boys are so fun and I think you'll agree that the littlest one is pretty stinkin cute.

David & Jennifer | Paducah, KY Maternity Photographer by Emily Margaret

I was so excited when David and Jennifer asked me to do a few maternity photos for them, as I had never shot a maternity session before working with them. I love it when the people I work with trust me enough to try new things with them, though the fact that David is my cousin may have helped a bit, too. ;)

We shot their session in mid-September, and last weekend their little girl Bryleigh was born! Congratulations!
