Hi, my name is Emma; mother, stylist, sometimes lifestyle photographer, occasional florist, workshop teacher, blogger, and host of “a quiet style 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’. 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.
The classes 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 a creative outlet and so I started blogging. About the things I love; simple interiors, fashion, art, makers, independent shops, healthy food and well being. And flowers. A subsequent desire to take beautiful photos of all these things led me to where I am today. All the courses I undertook had somehow finally come together.
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 seasonal workshops to share my knowledge and help others learn how to style and take their own photos for visual media.
