Self Portrait

Behind the lens

Emily is a portrait photographer who captures beauty and fashion using creative concepts. She is based on the east coast of Canada, primarily in St. John's, NL. She puts intention and purpose behind each photograph to create beautiful imagery. Ten years ago, she picked up her first camera as a hobby, taking portraits of friends and family for fun. As she continued to develop as a photographer, she began booking all kinds of clients, from families and couples to events and graduations, experimenting with different styles of portraits and learning new skills along the way. 
Emily now focuses on creative portraits, content creation, and fashion photography. She has had the pleasure of working with multiple local apparel brands and brands across Canada. Her intention with colour and light in every photograph shows her unique and elegant style. 


In August 2022, Emily was one of 20 Canadian photographers selected for the Canon Futures program, a 12-month mentorship program working with and learning from some of Canada's top photographers and creative professionals. 

In December 2023, Emily's work featured in the world-renowned magazine British Vogue, Glamour, and Tatler for her work with luxury raincoat brand Mernini. 





Along with shooting portraits of others, I also practice the art of self portraits!

My first self-portrait was a simple headshot. After that, I was eager to experiment with unique and creative forms of self-portraits involving props and more technical photography skills

I have found this style of photography challenging simply because of all the elements needed to create the image now that I am the one in front and behind the camera. 

Despite the challenges, there have been many positive outcomes with my self-portrait journey. The main one was that it taught me how to pose. This has translated into my work with clients giving me a better understanding of how to pose and direct the subject I am working with. 

I have also gained a better understanding of how a client feels during the session. There is no doubt that having your photo taken can be nerve-wracking. I have been able to guide my clients more easily through their session now that I know how they feel.
