What about when you’re alone with your boyfriend or future boyfriend?
Countless friends have recently asked me this question, and I feel as though it is such a hard battle to face and discuss. I tried my best to be understanding and transparent, and every time I prayed about this for my sweet friends, a word kept coming to my mind: boundaries.

  I’ve spoken to so many girls who ask me, “how in the world do you find good stuff at thrift stores?! I never do!!”.   The trick? Patience. I know, I know. And of all people I probably lack patience the most. But it can be worth it when looking through racks & racks […]


Getting Your Inner Thrift On {Be Thrifty with Emily}

Happy last day of May! Can you believe tomorrow is already the first day of JUNE?! Time flies when you’re having fun, right? ;) All day yesterday I had an idea running through my head for today’s post. Then when I sat down to actually write it out, Psalm 121 flooded my thoughts. Apparently one […]


You are going to LOVE today’s vendor! Lily and Val is Valerie McKeehan’s creation of custom, hand-painted chalkboard art, chalkboard prints, and paper goods.

Hey, what’s up? I’m Emily. I’m nineteen, I love adventures, woods, tea and coffee. Books are my friends, Jesus is the lover of my soul and  photography is the key to my heart. Texas is my home, but someday I wish to move to the mountains. I grew up on a miniature golf course that my parents […]

Jeremiah is such an amazing book in the Bible. God has used this section of HIS Word to hold my heart and comfort me so many times. When the road is confusing, long, and difficult…remember that HE is there with you. The best part about being a Christian is knowing that I’m not alone. That […]

Bath salts are a great way to soothe sore muscles and redness, and after having a long stressful day, or shooting a wedding where you’ve been on your feet for the day, soaking in the bath is one of the best ways to let your body relax, and adding bath salts make it that much […]


by: Kristin Ungerecht It works up slowly.   So much so that you often don’t even realize the machine’s been built, let alone turned on and running smoothly. That little green machine– the one that produces feelings of inadequacy and stress, pits friend against friend, and breeds discontent– takes very little to build and so […]

I decided that this week I would do something new and make a video for y’all instead of writing a normal blog post! Enjoy! -Kristina


I was up bright and early at 6 a.m.  Friday morning because my body was on Eastern time & thought I had overslept! After showering, I walked down to the kitchen, camera & Bible in hand to capture the stunning landscape set before me & worship our God who is so full of majesty. Emily […]

Retreats + Workshops

So Last year at the first delight retreat I attended (previously known as “Pursuing the light”) I fell in love with doing “stylized model shoots” or “editorial style” you could call it. Anyways, before I attended the retreat last year I wasn’t sure what type of photography I wanted to pursue the most. But then at […]


When words fail, art speaks. Be it music, paints, film, broken pieces, bits of glass, or a photograph…sometimes all there is left to speak with are colors and shadows and what’s left behind. It is everywhere if you only stop to see it. Beauty is in the imperfections, because it is those imperfections; those weaknesses, that […]
