About me


have camera, will travel 


Hello, I’m Emily

Hello! That’s me, Emily. Photos taken on a family trip to San Diego, because besides photographing other people, the things I love most are traveling with my husband and our daughter, making the world a more beautiful place, and meeting other wonderful humans. Have camera, will travel. 


I’m a weirdly extroverted introvert, who loves art and rules and breaking rules, so I’m terrible at writing about myself – but I’m doing it anyway! I talk in run on sentences, use my hands to illustrate my thoughts even when on the phone, and sometimes, I speak in other languages (Mluvis Cesky? Sprichtst du Deutsch?) when I’m a bit verklempt. 


If you’re looking for perfectly posed photos of your family, wedding, or business, I’m probably not the photographer for you. I believe that life isn’t perfect, and our stories are all a little bit messy, and perfect isn’t who we are. You might just get perfectly posed photos too, but know that I’m going to roll with the punches, whether that’s a backdrop that’s gone missing (true story!), a bridesmaid that needs to be sewn into her dress (another true story!) or a family member with an accidental black eye (uh, also a true story). 


I believe that the moments in your lives – big and small – are worth capturing.So throw on your power shoes, your lucky bracelet, or grab your kid’s favorite T-rex shirt, and let’s take some photos.

Three fun facts about me:

  • I live in a 1902 ‘farmhouse in the city’ in Spokane, WA.
  • My favorite treat is Haribo gummies – I love the owl ones!
  • Ravenclaw for life, and proud of that.

I photograph individuals, big & small companies, families, weddings, events, and  more. Sometimes I even help companies build their content strategy, social media, and create their entire web presence.
