Sunday Favorites (two days late!)

I've never been really good with deadlines, or getting anything done on time. 
So here are this weeks Sunday favorites, only two days late!

1. Pretty magazines!
I have so many magazines around my desk. 
Wedding and home decor magazines are my favorite. 
They are the perfect source for inspiration when I am feeling stuck!

2. My desk
I love my bright yellow desk, and aqua and white chevron chair!
It's the perfect little area for emailing, editing, and trying to get stuff done.
I also always have fresh flowers and a candle lit when I'm sitting there!

3. Me time!
I love spending time alone. Sometimes all I need to make me feel better is a cup of coffee,
 my journal, and the bible! It's the perfect thing to clear my head, or kick me out of a bad mood.

4. My new website!
I'm SO ready to be done with my new website design. 
I love it SO much because it's so ME! It's taking a long time, but I know it's worth it.

5. This video/song!
My dear friend Sarah posted this video on facebook the other day.
Such a beautiful song and video. I checked out the rest of their music and they are SO talented!

Okay, that's all for this week! Maybe I'll be on time next week!

Sunday Favorites

One of my New Years resolutions is to blog more!
Not only photoshoots, but also personal stuff. 
Sundays will be for sharing a few of my recent favorite things!

1. 7 year pens! 
I love pens, and have multiple mason jars full of them.
I love the one this one writes, and the glasses on it!

2. "Safe & Sound" by  Taylor Swift feat. The Civil Wars
I LOVE The Civil Wars, and was excited to hear them work with Taylor Swift.
It's such a pretty song.

3. Home decor
I'm planning on redoing my bedroom + office/craft room/guest room soon.
I'm constantly changing them. I'm also obsessed with looking at others home decor on pinterest.

4. Family time!
I've been getting to spend a lot of time with my family lately, because of the holidays. 
I love when the house is full, and never quiet. I miss them terribly when they are gone, 
but feel blessed to have such a wonderful family.

5. The future of Emmy Lou Photography!
I'm finishing up my new and improved website! New packages, new images, 
new opportunities for my business. I'm so excited to show off the new website!

That's all for now! I hope y'all are all having a wonderful new year so far!

Beth + Kevin (part 1) | Wedding Photography

Last month I had the privilege of shooting Beth and Kevins wedding. 
I could NOT have asked for a better couple. Beth was a very relaxed bride, and Kevin was THE happiest groom I have ever met! It also helped that they had a wonderful wedding planner, Stephanie, 
who pulled all the details together to make a small, intimate wedding. 

I picked so many favorites, that I'm going to have to divide them up into different parts.
Here is part one. Beth got ready at The Cottage, which is the cutest/most intimate little inn. It's a beautiful house, filled with white and pale pink decor. Shabby chic, relaxing, and private! I wish I could live there.

More coming! Stay tuned!

Hope you have a lovely week!

Joan | Portraits

Today I had coffee, went exploring and did a quick little photoshoot with an old friend of mine.
I love catching up with people, and feeling like we haven't spent so much time apart. 
I wanted to share a peak at some of them, because she is so gorgeous!
Thank you, Joan, for being up for anything! I love people who have no problems jumping fences, driving to the middle of nowhere, or going in creepy buildings just for a good photograph.

More to come! Hope you are all having a beautiful week.
