[HI. I'M EMILY.]
Hi, I'm Emily. I'm an editorial style photographer based in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, serving Portland, the Willamette Valley, & Seattle. I'm also available for (and love to) travel to other places.
Although my job is usually a blast and rarely feels like work (at least when I'm shooting), I love knowing that I'm doing something important. I'm responsible for documenting and preserving your memories. I take that job very seriously; it's an honor. And I mean that.
Together, we'll relax, laugh, and make awesome pictures. They're all about you, so don't worry about how it's "supposed" to go. Be yourself. You can't go wrong.
I love to sing to answering machines. Birthday songs and cheer-up songs are my specialty. Yes, I know I'm a terrible singer; that's part of the fun.
I believe that my job as a photographer is to capture the beauty that is your story and to tell it. I'm better at telling stories when I know who the characters are, so don't be freaked out when I try to get to know you.
I am a small-town girl who loves the big city. I love sparkley lights & yummy restaurants, but I hate traffic and having to be so cautious around strangers. I don't have life all figured out, but I'm enjoying the challenge.
For me, the beauty in photography is capturing the beauty of reality, rather than creating it. There is beauty to be found everywhere. And I just love finding it. And shooting it...with my camera.
I live in Jefferson, Oregon with this great guy named Steven and two amazing cats (Rufus and Kitty Kitty). It's beautiful here. There's ocean and sand, waterfalls and mountains - all within an hour or so of my front door. Photography adventures on bicycle are a favorite activity when I have time.
