This past March, I hopped on a flight to Omaha to meet up with Emily of the object enthusiast. We started blogging right around the same time and have been creatively collaborating for the past couple years. This past winter, Emily contacted me about getting her online presence in tip top shape now that her business has grown. It’s been an absolute dream to work with her over the past months to make her shop’s website a reality. While it’s currently being developed, I thought I’d share some of the photos that we took of her work for the site.
Emily’s story is an amazing one. After starting her ceramics career in Kansas part-time after she graduated college, she decided to take the leap to full-time ceramics work when she moved to Omaha with her boyfriend last year. Since she’s been focusing 100% on her ceramics, her career has skyrocketed. It’s truly amazing to have watched this growth happen, and I’m so proud and excited for all that Emily has done. As of last week, her ceramics are being sold at Anthroplogie, she has been a featured artist on Etsy, and she continues to gather accolades from all over the blog world. Go, go Emily!
These photos were all taken at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. It was an incredible space to work in — perfectly imperfect backdrops everywhere and natural light galore. We gathered blooms and props the day before the shoot, and spent the entire next day styling and taking photos. This was one of the first projects that I have worked on where I incorporated my photography chops in a big way. I took it as a personal challenge to add this passion of mine to a client project, and I’m happy that Emily was willing to put her faith in me and let me have at it. It’s amazing to me what can come out of a project when the people working on it are just in-tune as far as aesthetics and an end vision go. Thanks girl!
Sharing this is getting me excited to see the site working! Eeek. I’ll be sure to keep you all updated as it comes alive. Happy Wednesday!
