HI THERE, I'M EMILY
the hot mess
By hot, I mean temperature hot, not the other kind. If we are being honest, I'm always late, therefore probably always sweating and catching my breath trying to beat the clock just once to be on time. It's kind of ridiculous, really. I don't try to be late, in fact I try really, really hard to be on time, but I've just come to the realization that it just isn't meant to be. I have a pretty full plate and am always trying to get just "one more thing" done before I walk out the door. Not an excuse, just a fact...maybe not a great quality, but hey, nobody's perfect, right?
Which brings me to these yahoos off to the right. Yep, they're mine. The whole
lot of them...all boys, even the dogs. I'm surrounded by boy parts, boy smells,
boy everything, which might just be why I love this gig so much...its all girly and
all mine! As you can see they really love it when I make them get all dressed up
in their "nice clothes" aka "jeans" and actually act like they like each other
long enough to take a photo, but we always get it, even if I have to work my Photoshop skills and swap some heads.
Which is what I do full time. I own my own photography studio with a good friend of mine called EL Photography & Design. We met years ago working as graphic designers for a local agency. Through our love for design and photos we partnered up and have been doing photography ever since. Along with photography, freelance design keeps my juices flowing and our creative brains have sprouted a couple other businesses along the way. We've made handmade jewelry for several years now including some fun pieces for Iowa State and other schools and we just launched a brand new apparel company called FIT :: Fun, Inspiring Threads to bring some fun and unique apparel to our local communities and schools.
Needless to say I stay pretty busy, but still make time for family, friends and Senegence. I love the products and it is another fun creative outlet for me and
I get to do this with my best friend and amazing women. Not to mention the
perks aren't bad either! ;) But this is all about fun for me and I hope you can
find some inspiration somewhere in this hot mess I call my life!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to chat with you soon!
