Name's Emily Brooks. I am the creator of Captured by Emily Photography & Videography.
That's my husband, John. He is the LOVE of my life and hands down the most patient human being there is!!! Him and our two dogs (Lena & Bejay) constantly watch me as I feverishly edit photos on my computer for hours on end! Any photographer out there can fully relate!
THE MAIN REASON WHY I DO PHOTOGRAPHY/VIDEOGRAPHY, THROUGH MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, I'VE LEARNED THAT...LIFE KEEPS EVOLVING!
TIME MANAGES TO SLIP AWAY. NEWBORNS BECOME THREENAGERS. YOUR KIDDO IN GRADE SCHOOL IS SUDDENLY GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL. YOU REALIZE YOUR YOUNG FAMILY IS NOT-SO-YOUNG ANYMORE AND YOUR DAUGHTER, OVERNIGHT, HAS BLOSSOMED INTO A BEAUTIFUL, BLUSHING BRIDE! THESE ARE JUST A FEW EXAMPLES.
I SEE THESE CHANGES OFTEN AND ALL I WANT TO DO IS FREEZE TIME! I WANT TO CAPTURE THE LITTLE SLIVERS OF MEMORIES BIG OR SMALL.
I SIMPLY ENJOY MY INTERACTIONS WITH ALL MY CLIENTS. I LIKE TO LEARN ABOUT PEOPLE AND ALL THEIR STAGES IN LIFE. I THINK IT'S QUITE BEAUTIFUL!
EVERY ONE OF MY SESSIONS ARE INGRAINED IN MY MEMORY, BECAUSE FOR ME, THERE'S AN EMOTIONAL CONNECTION TO IT ALL. WHETHER IT BE THE PURE, UNSCRIPTED CHAOS THAT COMES ALONG WITH PARENTS AND THEIR CHILDREN, OR THE EXHAUSTED MOTHERS HELPING ME CAREFULLY POSE THEIR NEWBORNS BECAUSE THEY KNOW HOW FAST THEIR PEANUTS GROW, OR GETTING CHOKED UP LISTENING TO BRIDES & GROOMS EXCHANGE THEIR WEDDING VOWS, OR WHEN FOLKS REALIZE HOW GORGEOUS/HANDSOME THEY ACTUALLY ARE...I THRIVE FOR THESE MOMENTS!
SO LET'S LEARN MORE ABOUT EACH OTHER AND LET ME HELP YOU GET SOME AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHY/VIDEOGRAPHY IN YOUR HANDS:}
FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE OR JUST TO SAY "HI". I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
