A Chat with Emily’s Shutter
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I will always go the extra mile in my work to get you what you want. I am extremely flexible and able to adapt to changes in plans quickly and when you are working with children, under time constraints, or in iffy weather you need to know your equipment and be ready to adjust at the drop of a hat.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My inspiration was my father. I interned under him before going off on my own seven years ago. I knew upon shooting my first set of portraits, delivering them their finished product, and watching tears fill their eyes while they thanked me, that this was what I wanted to do with my life: capture yours.
What do you love most about your job?
My favorite thing about my job is a tie between the actual photo shoot when we are getting to know each other and having a great time, and when I finish all the photos and deliver them and hear my client say, “This is exactly what we wanted.” That is my goal every time I am hired.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
That would have to be a maternity session that I photographed. This woman was very pregnant at the time, uncomfortable and not feeling very pretty. We were able to get laughing and the photos turned out beautifully and all you could see was her radiant glow. She wrote me a letter thanking me.
