In 1996, Emilie's sister, Rachel Coleman, had given birth to her first daughter, Leah, who was diagnosed to be deaf, but Rachel had discovered that Leah could understand and do sign language at an early age, and was communicating with Emilie's baby son Alex. Emilie had proposed an idea about doing some educational music videos, but it seemed like the two sisters had discovered a new market, which was teaching American Sign Language to young kids and their families. Although at the time, Emilie was living in northern Virginia and Rachel in Utah, they worked together to create and produce the Signing Time! video series, where Emilie would assume the mostly off-camera roles of director, producer, pre- and post- production, and some voiceovers. Emilie's son, Alex Brown, was one of the stars in the series, along with Rachel and Leah. They released their first video in May 2002, and word spread quickly about the video's strong educational and entertaining appeal to young families, that it won many awards, was broadcast as a PBS series in 2006, and received an Emmy nomination in 2008.

Emilie continues to produce and direct Signing Time! videos for Two Little Hands Productions, which had grown its focus to include the Signing Time Foundation and many community and worldwide outreach programs. She and Derek live in the Salt Lake City, Utah area, with their two boys Alex and Zachary.
