An Artistic Photography Experience

That Embraces the Tenderness OF Motherhood


Welcome to Emmy Jo Photography, where the heartbeat of motherhood inspires every image. If you’re a mother, you’ve likely felt the bittersweet happiness of watching your children grow, all while realizing the heartbreak of how fast time is actually slipping away. I know what that feels like.

As a full-service photographer serving the North Carolina coast, I find beauty in the midst of what can feel like the chaos of raising babies. Let me help you preserve this time in your life by effortlessly capturing your natural moments.

Preserve your photos

Products & Prints

Before we even begin planning your session, we set intentions to preserve your images in print. I believe that the people you hold closest to your heart deserve to enjoy seeing these memories each day, and because I know that life can get hectic, I custom-design handcrafted albums and high-quality print products for every client.

Whether neatly organized in a box, elegantly displayed in an album, or proudly hanging on your wall, the act of printing your images preserves the emotions, connections, and love woven into each photograph.

Each photograph tells a story – let me preserve these memories in print.

Meet Emily

So Glad You Are Here!

Hello there! I’m Emily, a mom of five who is also navigating the intricate dance of motherhood. To me, what it means to be a mother could be summed up in two words: beautiful chaos.

If, like me, you’ve found yourself juggling moments of overwhelming exhaustion followed by the sweet joy of your baby’s peaceful sleep, then I’m the perfect photographer for you.

I believe in an effortless photography experience where you walk away feeling a refreshed sense of appreciation for the family you’ve created, as well as a collection of beautiful images to hang on the walls of your home.

Let me help you relive the beauty in the chaos through the art of an image.
