Hey there!

My name is Emily Mariani, welcome to my site.  My family and I live in Mckinney just outside of Dallas.  I have been married to my amazing husband for 16years and together we have three boys, Brooklyn (15) London (12) and Memphis (10) our four dogs and Hedwig, our cockatiel with attitude! When I am not spending time with my family, hanging out with my dogs, getting bit by my bird, I am substituting at Dowell and Boyd here at MISD which I really enjoy!

 I’ve been a photographer for over 10 years now teaching myself everything I know.  I have worked hard and I have studied hard, bringing my business from just a dream...an idea, to a successful portfolio and return clients.  Several of my photos have been featured on other photography sites such as Beyond the Wanderlust, I was published as a writer in Issue 11 of Bella Grace Magazine in June 2016 and one of my photographs was chosen to be in Beyond the Wanderlust Issue 1 Magazine.  Recently, I learned one of my photos will be used in the background of AMC's show Preacher, Season 2.  I also had one of my photographs picked as one of the best photos in Frisco and displayed in downtown Frisco for six months.

I was also invited to showcase a gallery of my work at Stage West in Fort Worth, Texas while the play "Life Sucks" was showing in 2017.

Even though I’ve explored quite a few different paths in photography, I’ve found that what brings me joy is outdoor family photography. I love creating cute photographs that bring smiles and happiness to families.  I would love the opportunity to bring smiles to your family.
