About me
 

Hi, my name is Emma; mother, stylist, sometimes lifestyle photographer, occasional florist, workshop teacher, blogger, and host of “a quietstyle gatherings”.

I have always had a passion for creativity and beauty, but it took me a few years to find my place in the creative world. As a teenager, I was interested in textiles and fashion, desperately wanting to pursue that path but instead I was persuaded to do something more ‘sensible’.  Which meant, because the degree I started wasn’t a good fit, I never finished it, and instead ended up in an office job. But I still had the creative itch, and so I did a few courses; pottery, jewellery design, floristry, interior design, quilting, and although I enjoyed them all, I felt none were quite right for me as a career, well to be honest, when it came to pottery, I think the tutor probably felt it wasn’t right for me either!

My serial class undertaking came to a stop when I became pregnant about 13 years ago.  And I now have not one, but two incredible daughters. I love being a mother, but I still needed an outlet and so I started blogging, and it was blogging about the things I love; simple interiors, fashion, art, makers, independent shops, healthy food and well being, not forgetting flowers and a subsequent desire to take beautiful photos of all these things that led me to where I am today. I hadn’t realised it at the time, but all the courses I undertook had somehow come together.

Which in a nutshell means that I now work as a stylist and photographer mainly for small brands in my home studio, but occasionally on location. The styling I do covers interiors, still-life, products, lifestyle and events. I also hold lifestyle based workshops to share my knowledge and help others learn how to style and take their own photos for visual media.

From time to time I also do content creation for social media, It is very important to me, that the brands I work with are ones I love or ones I believe my followers will be interested in, and love too. So please be assured any collaborations I do are always honest, and any opinions given are my own.

If you are interested in collaborating, please drop me an email. For further information on my workshops or to see my portfolio of recent work, click on the relevant menu above.
