Samuel - Class of 2016 | Western KY Senior Photographer by Emily Margaret

Samuel: high school senior and farmer.

One crisp October afternoon, we ventured out on his family's farm to the cornfield to do a few photos. Afterwards, our families made the most of the beautiful fall day, spending it drinking homemade apple cider around a bonfire and going on a hayride around the farm. Sometimes keeping things simple is the best- I'm definitely a fan.

EMP Turns 1 + Mini Session Giveaway! | Paducah KY photographer **GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED** by Emily Margaret

Last year on October 1st, I officially started my photography business, which now makes my business one year old! It's been a year full of learning, trying new things, traveling new places, meeting new people, and of course, taking lots of photos. While it's been lots of fun, it's also been difficult. Running a photography business is 20% taking photos and 80% other things like editing, bookkeeping, taxes, email, blogging, and social media management. I'm working on a blog post for later this week that will go into a bit more detail about my first year in business. But today to celebrate year 1, I'm giving away a mini photography session!

S Family | Lake Barkley Family Session by Emily Margaret

When your family lives far away from each other, having photos with each member present can be a rare occasion. Earlier this year, Anna contacted me to have a family photo session at Lake Barkley where her family was meeting up for vacation this summer. The weekend we shot these photos was also the same very warm + very humid weekend I assisted this wedding, and as Anna's family is from up north, they definitely got to experience a typical Kentucky summer. 

Large family sessions like these can be challenging, as sometimes not everyone is as excited for family photo time, but Anna's family was so great to work with and I could tell that they really enjoy spending time + having fun together. I think that really shows in these images, don't you?
