I’m elated to introduce y’all to my spring intern, Emma! I’ve already had the pleasure of working with her for the past three weddings, and she’s incredibly talented + kind-hearted. I can’t wait to see how she grows over the rest of the spring season.

I always ask my interns to write a bit about themselves so that my couples can get to know them. From Emma:

Great loves almost always have a long crazy story about how they came about.  The food you never really cared for as a kid is your favorite, the boy you never took notice of is the man you fall for and marry, and the hobby you never thought you’d have becomes a passion that you plan to make your life’s work.  How that comes about and the way it makes you feel – words can never do it justice.  That’s probably why I love photography so much, because it gets us so much closer to paying the tribute to the feelings you’ll never find the words for.  Plus, I’m a really terrible writer – so that’s a bonus.

When I was a kid, I wanted to work at Taco Bell or be Bozo (does anyone remember him?).  Later, I thought I was going to be an architect, so I went to architecture school.  There, I met my husband and my world flipped a little bit.  A lot of stuff happened in-between then and now but, it’s because of him and our two sons that my perspective on life has changed.  

They add so much love and craziness to my life that has helped me grow as a person, a woman, and a mother.  I am so many things I never thought I would be because of them and a photographer is definitely on that list.

Because of them, I believe in things I cannot prove, I listen to my heart and love deeper than I ever thought I could.  The crazy just adds to the adventure.

Oh, and I like beer.  And food.
