It’s quite vulnerable to share with my readers that yes — I suffer from creative ruts. Sometimes the day-to-day stuff, simply puts me in a creative cloud that is hard to shake. No matter how much I enjoy photography, eventually, I find myself and my creativity in a weird space.

I’ve had the honor of working with this sweet family for a few years now and it just keeps getting better and better! We had this session on the calendar for months and I couldn’t contain my excitement when I looked at the forecast and saw that our day for pictures would be absolutely perfect.

Julia + Dustin | Dream Chasers Workshop

I’m so excited to be blogging this beautiful in home maternity lifestyle session with my friends Julia and Dustin! They graciously modeled for me at my most recent Dream Chasers Workshop and there’s a funny story because they were actually scheduled to be my bride and groom at the main barn styled shoot (you can view that here!), but the universe had much greater plans for them… to become parents!

Lauren

I’ve been thinking back to this summer and how much fun it was for me personally and professionally! One of my favorite parts of any summer is visiting my hometown of Wenatchee, Washington. Anytime I’m home, I try to book a few portrait sessions and this season I had some amazing seniors on the calendar, including miss Lauren!

When I decided to say goodbye to my downtown studio (more on that here), I worried for about .1 seconds about having a clean white space to take pictures if need be in my house and that fear went away when I realized my house is basically a big studio!

I feel as though my time in Wenatchee this summer was NOT long enough!  Although I was happy to get back home and escape the terrible smoke that filled the valley while I was in town for a wedding and a few of my senior girls!

I grew up in Wenatchee, Washington and miss my hometown all the time! However, I have to admit that summers over there now are pretty frustrating with all the smoke that seems to be in full force by August. I just wrapped up a week in Eastern Washington and my goodness the smoke was brutal.

Ellie + Ryan | Engaged

These two... ahhh their love is contagious and you could just feel it within the first few seconds of our time together.  Engagement sessions are probably my favorite part of the wedding experience here at Emma Rose Company because it is my opportunity to get my couples familiar with the way I work and and how I approach everything to get the final result I'm after!

Krystal + Steve | Engaged

My first year moving to Southwest Washington was a little tough and majority of my shoots and weddings were still being scheduled over on the east side of the mountains where I'm from (about a 5 hour drive!)  Well... that is wonderful and I do love taking pictures over there in the desert but it's been absolutely incredible this year getting to work with so many LOCAL couples, including these two!
