Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 3.17.08 PMHi 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.
