ABOUT Lavender & light

Behind the Lens

I treasure genuine connection and conversation. 

about me

I'm Emily

I have been where you are. Whether you are newly engaged and planning your wedding, just saw those two lines telling you that you are pregnant, or are getting adjusted at home with your new little baby. I know the excitement and anticipation of the season you are in. And it thrills me more than you know to get to photograph these things for you. To be behind the scenes, and help you remember a time that will soon become a memory.

Wife. Mama to my sweet baby boy Dean. Cat mom to Jett Jett & Piper Girl. Photographer. Daughter. Friend. I value the many titles I hold, I feel deeply and treasure genuine conversation.

The more you get to know me, you will find out that photography is my happy, creative place where I love every part of it.

This season of life is busy and full of change. Becoming a mom is a dream come true and I am so thankful to be experiencing it all with my best friend, my best encourager, my husband Mark. We lean on each other, winging it with each thing life throws our way.

I think kindness is one of the most precious gifts we can give one another. Say kind things to each other, show people grace, and encourage each other. It's free, it doesn't take much effort, and it's life changing.

my favorite things:


places i've been

Anywhere with spanish moss will always take my breath away. 


guilty pleasure

I can never resist buying a cute cup, cozy blanket, or enjoying a little bit of dessert after a meal.



Spending time outside with Baby Dean, reading a good book, or binging a show me and my husband both like.



Pasta. Bread. Ice cream. What more do you even need...



These guys are my world. They fill my life with love and laughter. 


part of my job

When the Lavender and Light family sends me pictures of the photos they have hanging in their homes.

tangible memories

Lavender and Light clients value quality time, and cherish storing their memories in tangible ways.

What are your plans for your images?

I want that to be the thought that drives our location choice, outfit choices, and ultimately the reason for your session. These beautiful images that we create together deserve to be printed, framed, held and cherished. I will help make your vision come to life.
