photo Education

For the dreamers & coastal lovers.

Sounds legit, right?

I host Styled Shoots in dreamy locations across the PNW every month. Models, their attire, and unique decor is all provided—no planning required—all you have to do is show up with your camera and shoot! Not only are Styled Shoots a great way to build your portfolio and attract your dream clients, but it's a great opportunity meet other photographers in the area, try out new creative shooting techniques, and practice posing your clients.

The day is yours. We will chat for a few hours over coffee or food. After we’ve gone over what you’re hoping for and dreaming up I’ll take you to a 90 minute shoot where you get all the pointers from me. Posing, prompting, outfit input, angles, all the works!
This can be a couples session or a senior session (again, totally up to you!). You can choose the location or let me scout something for you! During our time together you are more than welcome to ask questions, ask for input, I'm an open book! At the end of our time together I will analyze your Instagram and website for you and share my ideas on how to better engage your customer base and grow your business.

IN-PERSON session

I'm passionate about helping other photographers by sharing the tools and resources I’ve gained along the way. My heart is to help you discover what works for you while giving you my best tips and tricks. Each mentorship is completely customized to your specific needs, so reach out and we can begin planning a mentor session that is right for you.

You know photography is the career for you, but how do you get there? Running your own business can be challenging—I’ve had my fair share of great days but there are also so many things I wish I knew when I was just starting out.




I recently attended a Styled Shoot with Emily and it was my first experience so I really didn't know what to expect—Emily made everyone feel comfortable right off the bat & it was a wonderful afternoon! I highly recommend attending any Styled Shoot Emily hosts!

"I was able to shoot some fantastic content as well as network with other photographers in my area! 



Styled Shoot Attendee




Before our session, I was feeling lost & didn’t know how to take the next step in making my photography business successful. Immediately after, I was so excited to put the tips Emily gave me into action. Because of our mentor session, I feel much more confident in my photography business as a whole!”

"To anyone feeling disappointed and like you’re seeing little to no improvement, I definitely recommend investing in a mentor session with Emily!
