About




WELCOME TO EMILYCIERNIA.COM 💙


As you've probably guessed it, my name is Emily - a born and raised Minnesota photographer, designer, and blogger who lives in Minneapolis with my favorite person (and hubby) Nick. When I'm not living the corporate life during the week, I spend my free time exploring everything from my cozy local coffee shop, to places all over Minnesota and the world; Art + Freelance Design + Photography - and this is where you can keep up with all my adventures!

 I am passionate about photography, design, technology, animals, good coffee, and plush blankets.


Meraki [may-rah-kee] - when you do something with creativity or love; putting a piece of yourself into what you do. 


A few of my favorite things…

  1. Coffee - psst. my fav order from @CaribouCoffee is a caramel cooler.
  2. Plush blankets - I have more in my house than I can count...
  3. Brunch - waffles with whipped cream, please.
  4. Talking walks by the lake - with a camera in hand of course.
  5. Trying new café spots.
  6. Puppies - because corgi butts.
  7. HGTV - my guilty tv watching pleasure.

Some quotes + sayings that I try to live by:

If you want to know where your heart is, look where your mind goes when it wanders. 
Thinking here goes nothing, could be the start of everything.
Wherever you are, be all there.
I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring. 
It's very okay to not know yet.
Kind people are my kinda people.
Never give up on something you can't go a day without thinking about.
People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.

I'm so happy you're here, and I hope you enjoy your stay 💙

Stay cozy!
