Emma is a mother of 2 spirited boys in her very early 40’s. She is a dog lover and lives on the South Northants / North Oxfordshire border with her family, Edith the whippet and Hugo the miniature dachshund.
Emma has a 25-year medical background but a burning passion for photography. It was not long after having children that she started taking photos and realised over a period that she had a natural talent for it. One DSLR later and she was lost in a whole new world of photography books and online tutorials. The subsequent years spent doggedly honing that skill and experimenting with fancy techniques had earned her several international awards.
Tragically Emma recently lost her best friend of 33 years to suicide. She found it hard to get back into photography for a while, not least because her friend was her regular shooting buddy. But the pull was too great and Emma found she needed to keep shooting to stay relatively sane. Subsequently, the past year has seen her produce some of her deepest work ever.
Emma considers herself very lucky to have found these 4 wonderfully supportive ladies who chat daily and share her passion to bring together this project and do something to make a difference with their photography.
Being used to dealing with difficult and sometimes heartbreaking situations in her role as a paramedic, Emma is comfortable documenting in sensitive conditions, even end of life.
Ideally, her clients will be within a 30-mile radius of NN13.
She will be shooting in memory of her friend Gemma to raise money for Mind.
