Sheffield Portrait Photographer
Hello! I’m Emma, a creative portrait photographer based in the glorious city of Sheffield. I’m originally from Warwickshire and spent 12 years living in Manchester, before finding myself living on a very steep hill here in Yorkshire.
I have 10 years of full time experience photographing incredible human beings. I have photographed a crazy amount of portraits, weddings, families and events over that time. all of which have brought with them a unique look into the life/lives of the people in front of the camera.
I love to travel, quite often on my own. There is nothing I enjoy more than exploring new cities, and people watching. I’m a huge fan of film photography, particularly Polaroids. Although my bank balance suffers greatly because of this. I’m inspired by music, and get very excited when I meet people who have Spotify playlists they want to share with me. I get easily distracted by light. If I see a patch of beautiful light I’m probably going to make you stand in it whilst I take your photograph. I also get easily distracted by sequins, balloons, and anything twinkly. I wish I could dance like Beyonce (in my head, I can). I have the sense of humour of an eight year old boy, which means I laugh at bad Dad jokes. My favourite film is True Romance. I have a creative mind, which is great when it comes to portrait sessions and celebrations. Not so good when it comes to accounting, it gives me an anger rash. I drink a lot of tea.
I am based in Sheffield and cover the UK. However, I love to travel and will happily explore further afield. People of New York, I’m talking to you.
For me, photography is about connection. Whether that’s to a particular time in someone’s life, a celebration, or a place. I want my clients to look back on the images I took and remember how they felt in that moment. It’s not just about making things look pretty, although my love of light and movement can often make that happen naturally.
