Thank you for stopping by to peek into the world of Chasing McAllisters (formerly Chasing Ayden). My name is Emily, and I am a sober mommy to my daughters Ayden + Frankie, and wife to Mike.
I am a writer, photographer and content creator. I also love playing with hair and makeup, singing, dancing, cooking, party-planning and anything that allows me the freedom of artistic self-expression. Fun fact: I am a licensed cosmetologist.
I originally started writing this blog in 2014 as a knee-jerk response to my need to create. Originally, this space began as a DIY blog. Between crafty projects, I would find myself chasing my sweet Ayden around the house, hence the former name ‘Chasing Ayden’.
As I delved further in to Motherhood, I found myself wanting to share authentically about my discoveries and journey in parenting. I wanted to go behind the pretty pictures of Instagram, and talk about real and honest motherhood. The community that has formed around sharing vulnerably, is my favorite (that’s you!)
I hope that you will find something here that you can relate to or that just plain inspires you! I also want to encourage you to join my mailing list, as I regularly email out freebies and discount codes! You can sign up below, and receive my top 5 photography tips in your inbox right now!
