These ‘About Me’ Things Are Harder Than They Look! Let’s See… My first name is actually Emily-Melissa. It’s a mouthful, but don’t worry — my friends call me Emily I’m a chatty Chicago-native who loves to make people laugh. I’m also a military spouse. A mother of a brilliant and beautiful little boy and two fur kids. A dreamer. A creative. A light-chaser. I’ve been photographing families for four years. I absolutely love what I do. Other things I love include coffee, Krispy Kreme donuts, Ben & Jerry’s Americone Dream, and long flowy dresses. In my free-time you can likely find me at your local thrift stores & flea markets planning my next diy project. Painting. Refinishing furniture. cooking my favorite dish, chicken fajitas. Ok, lets be honest: living at the whim of my toddler.
