Meet Emily.

Emily, the photographer:  Emily has been an award winning professional photographer for 20 years. She tells people’s life stories by capturing people as they are, in everyday moments. Her work includes artist and professional profiles, environmental portraits, head shots, family portrait sessions, birth photography. She also does commercial product photography, travel documentary work, and photographs small group gatherings. She has since retired from weddings but has photographed many, many beautiful couples over the years.

Emily, the artist: Emily enjoys the artistic play of using ordinary materials (i.e. paper, paint, fabric, fibers, etc.) with the goal to create colorful, light-filled art that’s designed to uplift both Emily as the maker, and her collectors. She’s also a published book illustrator, and has shown art pieces in galleries in several states. Emily is committed to the act of making something creative every day – a day doesn’t quite feel complete without it. She sells some of of her fine art paper collages in her etsy shop – emmie and co. goods – and locally in the Colorado Springs area at Old Colorado City gift shop Meraki Springs. You can follow along with her visual art creations over on Instagram @emilywalen.

Emily, the human: Adventuring is what her family loves to do. Emily, along with her husband and four children, recently spent several years on the road as nomads traveling around the USA – exploring big cities to out of the way places, national parks to museums. It was an absolutely incredible experience. They’ve since settled in Colorado Springs, CO and find joy in spending time hiking and playing in the great outdoors, exploring new-to-them places, and getting to know their new life in the great southwest. Most of all, she loves to be with her family, spreading kindness, while exploring the near and far on this beautiful Earth.
