What kind of photography do you specialize in or use for your business?
I shoot mostly families, but love storytelling sessions. I love to tell the stories of Saturday mornings.
Where are you located and how does your location influence your photography?
I’m in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The weather here definitely influences photography! You need to be comfortable being cold (which I’m not) or learn to embrace shooting inside. I try to get creative with lighting and using artificial light during our long winter months.
What is your favorite part of the photography process?
I really love shooting the most. I like waiting and watching for the perfect shot, I love looking for light. I bring my camera everywhere I go, so I love to find inspiration and beauty to shoot in everywhere we go.
How would you describe your photography style?
Honest storytelling. I love to tell stories.
Aside from your camera what is one of the most useful photography tool(s) you’ve purchased?
Education! I’ve taken some really incredible classes and had some wonderful mentors! Find someone you love and learn from them. Work your breakouts, do your homework, listen to the feedback. You won’t regret it!
What’s your favorite thing about your bluebird chic strap?
I bring my camera everywhere I go! I need a strap that’s strong, comfortable, durable, and beautiful. I love how my Bluebird Chic strap distributes the weight of my heavy DSLR, and it’s gorgeous enough to be the perfect accessory to wear every day!
Thanks for sharing with us today Emily and for supporting the bluebird chic brand!
