I have spent the past four years capturing beautiful weddings all over Australia and the world. I have also been lucky enough to work with some amazing editorials and businesses. Working with a vast variety of individuals and businesses opened up a world of creativity and I was able to meet some incredibly talented and inspiring people. This experience is what made me fall in love with working with and elevating creatives and artists, telling their story and creatively capturing their life and their talent.

I AM EMILY. A PHOTOGRAPHER, STORYTELLER AND LOVER OF ALL THINGS CREATIVE.

I am sentimental. I am a collector of moments and things. My passion for documentation goes right back to my childhood. With a camera in hand I was always the family photo maker. As a child I spent hours in my family’s photo cupboard, in awe of the beautiful black and white faded prints and slides in worn out photo albums and old wooden boxes. I never tired of browsing these gorgeous memories of family, travel and the past.

I have travelled, lived and fallen in love with many people, interiors, food and cultures of this beautiful world. I still spend my time exploring and collecting in my local area and when I get the chance love nothing more than travelling the world experiencing and capturing the adventures and stories that I am faced with. I have spent the past four years capturing beautiful weddings all over Australia and the world. I have also been lucky enough to work with some amazing editorials and businesses.

MY APPROACH

My approach to photography is both natural and unobtrusive. I observe, document and preserve moments as they happen. I capture the many different elements that make up you, your studio and your work, a place and a moment in time. I shoot both indoors and outdoors using as much soft, natural light as possible. Mixing documentary and creative portraiture with a sense of still life, my aim is to tell stories creatively and most of all authentically.

 

MY SERVICES

I photograph creatives and artists in Australia and, when I am lucky, around the world. I capture eclectic studios, homes and interiors full of colour, texture and collections of trinkets from places near and far. I share the stories of individuals that are living a life with purpose and passion and places that are a little different where tiny moments feel extravagant.

I work with private clients and editorial publications both online and in print. Topics range from people, places and interiors to unique professions, art and experiences. I capture images to help unique creative businesses and individuals stand out through their marketing and brand imagery. I am based in Brisbane, Australia and will travel anywhere possible to capture that perfect creative story.

 

MY STYLE

I am trained in fine art photography and styling and I love to paint, draw, and thread, get creative and travel. I am inspired by life, by light and shadows, colour, travel, people, love, food, culture, creativity and passion. I create narrative within each project and my style has a soft refinement that allows even the tiny details to speak loudly. My style has often been referred to as soft and romantic.

 


Creatives Package

WHO

I offer creative brand content creation and visual storytelling for florists, painters, illustrators, writers, designers, stylists, photographers or any other creative individual who wants something a little different, a little creative. For those who understand the importance of powerful imagery but may not have the time or the ability to take or create their own.

WHAT

Together we will create images for use on your website, across your social media platforms, in print and anywhere else your heart desires. These images are to promote you as an artist, your business as professional service and your story as your brand. These images will be how the outside world is drawn to you and your work. They will tell your unique story and help you stand out online and throughout your marketing.

WHY

When you use the right visuals to tell your story, your brand becomes instantly elevated and the moment people see it, they will want to know more about you. Beautiful imagery allows you to immediately connect with your ideal audience and will give you the confidence to put your business out there. You will have visuals that you are deeply proud of and which truly reflect who you are and what your business does.


Every creative has a process. Mine is this....

 

I WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU AND YOUR STORY

Once you have decided to work with me I will send you some fun and thought provoking questions. These questions will help me piece together who you are and what your business represents. They will allow me to delve deeper into your story and really understand what it is you do and why. We will then organise a time and place to meet. Whether this is in person over strong delicious coffee or via Skype, I would love to meet you. It is important for us to know each other and be comfortable before shoot day. Plus who doesn't love a chat about creativity and chasing dreams. We will cover things like:

  • What is your story. Why you do what you do
  • The feel and style of your work/business and how are you unique
  • Who is your target market and how will we attract their attention
  • How do you want the outside world to see you and your business
  • How do you market your business

 

PLAN AND PIN

Once we have met and got to know one another it is then my time to get messy and creative in my journal and on Pinterest (of course). I will devise a 

 

SHOOT

Image Styling & Creation (shoot day) - this is a half day shoot (3 hours).

 

RECEIVE IMAGES

Using all the details and vision you’ve shared with me, I will put together final images from your shoot that I feel tell your story in the most effective way.

30 - 40 final edited high resolution images will be provided on a personalised USB. These images will be edited and saved in both print and web format.
