ABOUT EMILY Life creates stories that want to be retold in a beautiful image. I believe the sweetest moments in life can remain in full bloom when captured well. I love to photograph the moments that beg to be revisited over and over again as time goes on. Whether I'm pausing a child's sprint to adulthood or preserving a precious memory from a day in the life, it is the everyday stories that keep me behind the lens, patiently waiting for that perfect moment. Life and portraiture are the focus in my photography, and the new experiences and people I encounter each day fuel my passion. What draws my lens to the human form the most is not necessarily about beauty. Without placing too many demands or expectations on it, I like to see how the body relates to the environment in a thoughtful way. As with all my photography, the picture should be simple, sensitive, evocative, even sexy at times, with a melancholic edge. The best effect, however, is the happiness of my clients. I'm based in San Francisco, CA and work locally in Los Angeles, CA and Seattle, WA.
