Hi there! I’m Emily and I’m passionate about creating beautiful and affordable designs for photographers. I’m living my dream of being able to wear yoga pants everyday, stay home with my 2 year old daughter, Riley (if you wanna see a few hundred pictures of her, check out my Instagram) and building a business that I love.

I always had a love for beautiful design from an early age. My first job was at a Hallmark when I turned 16. I would sit for hours and read & organize the cards and gifts, always volunteering to wrap pretty presents for the customers.

I received my degree in Graphic Design and worked my way through college at many different design and marketing jobs. Luckily it was at one of those jobs I would meet my future husband. Ryan is my biggest inspiration and supporter and I couldn’t do what I do without him.

After college I dove head first in corporate life and became Creative Director for a restaurant company. Every day I came home and worked on building my own business and Seaside Creative was born in 2009. Since then I’ve been able to work with many amazing & talented photographers – building a professional and beautiful brand they love.

Teaming up with ProPhoto and working with them has been such a great partnership and my designs have been used for thousands of creative businesses.

I live in beautiful San Diego California and love watching the sun set as the waves crash against the sand. I love wine & cheese picnics on a brisk afternoon with my husband, staying home and having game nights and partying watching Netflix.
