Hi! I'm Emily, and I live in Round Rock, Texas which is about 20 minutes north of Austin, Texas.
Photography is a time capsule for me. I love capturing the small moments of life that will slip away easily with time. We all know people and places change and grow, but a photograph will always be connected to a memory. I love creating a photographic time capsule. We never want to forget the people and events that help shape us. Photographs keep those memories alive long after the moment has past.
A little bit about me...
I've loved photography for a long time. I had a Sony film camera when I was a kid and was 'that kid' who was always taking pictures of my friends and all the stuff we did. My parents were kind enough to buy me film and get it developed at our local store. I moved to the digital age in college, and I was so proud of my 1x1 inch screen to preview my shots! I purchased my first DSRL when my kids were born to capture all those young fleeting moments. From there, I wanted to improve my photography and started taking classes and educating myself to truly learn the art. And now, here I am!
I love my large, loud family! I'm married to my awesome husband, and we have 4 children, 3 boys and 1 girl who are all less than 5 years apart. My girl is the youngest and will probably be overprotected all her life by her big brothers.
I'm what many people call a Texas transplant. I grew up a Navy brat along the East Coast and moved to Texas later.
I earned my Bachelors in Exercise and Sport Science from Southwest Texas State University. I earned my Masters in Sports Management from Louisiana State University and my MBA at Texas State University.
I've combined my long time passion of martial arts and fitness with photography to create my own Fitness Photography.
I'm a true believer in giving back to the community by volunteering. Recently, I've become an Affiliate Photographer for The Tiny Footprints Project. This wonderful organization matches parents with newborns in the NICU with local photographers to offer sessions inside the hospital's NICU.
I enjoy traveling, movies, cooking (and most especially eating!), working out, practicing Tae Kwon Do and playing with my kids and dogs.
And I love finding a quiet moment to relax, enjoy a warm cup of coffee and getting lost in a good book.
