I'm Emily. I have always had a passion for encouraging and empowering women of all ages. As a woman, I want to be open and honest about my own experiences because it can help someone who may be struggling.
I am a 30 something year old who still doesn't quite feel like a grown up. I have been with my partner for over 7 years, known him for over 11. We met because of a shared love of Final Fantasy VII. We call Salt Lake City home along with our dachshund Korkie who lets us graciously live with him and sleep in his bed. I claim the coolest Aunt award and if you ever come over my fridge is covered in art from my nieces and nephews.
I discovered boudoir in 2007 and remember watching these beautiful, stunning women be free in their bodies. 10 years later, I began my journey in studying, learning, observing, and being a woman who could offer boudoir. I wanted to give other women an incredible empowering experience. I have had multiple boudoir sessions of my own to help me bring empathy, understanding, and knowledge to each session I have the honor of being a part of.
My approach to photography is to focus on capturing authentic moments and honest feelings. I love details, laughter, and telling a story.

ABOUT EMBER & ASH BOUDOIR
Ember & Ash Boudoir was birthed from the idea of a small spark alighting and catching fire to grow into a blaze. Sometimes we need that reminder that even from the embers something can grow. As someone who loves fantasy and myths, the idea of a phoenix being reborn from the ashes is such a powerful image that encompasses what I strive for every human to feel when they leave a session with me.
I get the struggle we face as ladies in a society that consistently tells us we are not enough or too much or just not right. I believe all women are on a journey (me included!) to learn to love ourselves as we are in this very moment. I want to give other women that opportunity. To me, boudoir is so much more than sensual photos. It is an experience that can absolutely change your life. I believe every woman deserves a moment and the space to know how beautiful, worthy, and strong she is. Boudoir is something that allows that moment to happen.
I am a safe space where you can reclaim, redefine, and rediscover what is all ready yours.
