About Emily

2015-03-16_0021
I should start by telling you that I am an awful writer. Photography is my talent. Words – not so much. When I sat down to createthis section I wrote up a rough draft to send to my sister for a ‘quick’ check. She told me she didn’t even know where to begin to start fixing it. It was that bad. So I apologize, but you will just have to bear with me.   I started taking pictures in high school. I am not sure if I was driven by a passion or by the fact that I got to roam the halls  and stand on the football field during games (with all the good looking athletes). Whatever the reason, I can’t imagine doing anything else. In college I was lucky enough to go on Semester at Sea where I traveled the world. I was in heaven.  For many of our port stops I imagined myself as a National Geographic photographer. And as a 22-year-old I couldn’t have been happier.  After college I started working with newspapers in Phoenix as a photojournalist. Once again I was over-the-moon excited with my career choice! I used to wear my East Valley Tribune press pass like a badge of honor.  The first few weeks I would ‘forget’ to take it off after a shoot and go out still wearing it. :)  I have now progressed into photographing families, doing weddings, and taking portraits.  A few years back I slowly started heading in this direction and found that I gravitated toward this work.  I love meeting and being around the lovely people I photograph.  I have made life-long friends and feel great knowing my artwork is part of their life.

I love having fun on shoots. One of my favorite moments in my career was at a one-year-old’s birthday party. The baby was attacking the cake with such enthusiasm and I was laughing so hard my mascara was running! I feel so lucky to combine work and fun.

I’ll leave you with a few personal details. I heart my Boston Terrier, Hoover. My family says he’s so ugly he’s cute. I love being outside and participating in events like triathlons and mud runs. And I am completely smitten with my nieces and nephews. You should see them. They are adorable. You would be smitten, too.

Alexandra Garces - Loved your blog. Your pictures are just beautiful, I wish I knew you were in Massachusetts. I live in CT (as you know) and I could have made the drive to have a photo session with my niece/goddaughter. Let me know when you are back on the East Coast.
