When Emily contacted me in August and asked if I'd be interested in taking her headshots, I was so excited! She was positively radiant and so much fun - I think that comes across in her beautiful pictures. Shooting with Emily gave me a lot of confidence as a photographer. Before Emily, I didn't have a lot of experience as a professional photographer, and I was still really nervous about making clients happy. She was so encouraging to me and so laid back and willing to try just about anything (basically the perfect subject!). I remember a moment when she was gone changing into a different outfit, I sat on the bench with this giant, make-your-face-ache smile, just wishing I could somehow express my excitement and butterflies-in-your-stomach joy that I was feeling at the time I was working with her.

It was after I photographed Emily and sifted through and edited some of her images that I started to really believe in myself as a professional. My experience with her motivated me to take the next step and set up a website and a facebook account for my business.

Emily, thank you for your beauty, your kindness, your radiant energy, and your amazing attitude. Thanks for believing in me!

So naturally graceful...

...and that smile! It is so joyful and so warm. If I didn't know you, I'd want to after looking at this picture.

 I think maybe this is my favorite image from the session. I'm not sure what it is about it, but I love it. It is so genuine.

Thanks for everything, Emily! You are beautiful.
