Meet Emma

My dad probably wanted me to be a doctor. Can't say that worked out too well.

I know this is where I tell you how I got into photography and what made me want to do this, but honestly, I never was good at following directions. So I'm not going to do that. I want to tell you who I am. I hope you won't mind.

My name is Emma Caron. I am a puppy mom, a wife, a daughter, and a friend, a follower of Jesus. And after all of that, I am a photographer. 

I grew up in the small town of North Pole, Alaska which made me who I am; a small town girl. All my life, I wanted to get out of there. I used to sit in the chairs at church praying that I could leave everything behind and see the world. I had a long term boyfriend, an apartment, so many friends, a great photography community and client base, and then suddenly I heard God say..."Go! Now!"... and I didn't listen. So he made me. And I have never been more thankful for anything in my entire life. Before I knew it, my life was in wreckage in all the most necessary ways. I was packing whatever would fit in my SUV and driving through Canada to Boise with the intention of never coming back.

I have an appreciation now for the girl my small town raised me to be, but Boise made me a business woman. I had to start from scratch, and learn how to network. I couldn't rely on just word of mouth referrals anymore. I hustled, I prayed, I cried in a dutch bros drive through when they asked me how my day was going because, honestly, it was going terrible. But then suddenly, it wasn't terrible anymore. I made some of the best friends I've ever had, and I found a community of women who wanted to see me succeed. Annnd I met my Idaho=native husband here in Boise - also a plus. God provided, time and time again. I made so many mistakes, and I learned so much about myself.

I am resilient. Bold. I never quit. I always strive for more. I love to serve. I talk too much, but I also love to listen. I laugh loudly and unapologetically. I say, "perfect" five million times during my photo shoots, and while I am always on time for shoots, I am equally always five minutes late in my personal life. When I shoot, I shoot who you are. I capture all the moments when you've just finished laughing, or your smile is just starting to curl up around the edges of your lips because I think those moments are when we are most alive...

I believe in the in between moments. In soaking up every second of them. I want to show what it look liked, but more than that what it felt like.

On my days off you'll find me...

Enjoying a relaxing day at home, or out running errands, with my husband Matt and our puppy Kohl. We love to get things done together, and I always make us stop for a coffee of course. You can find us on the couch on Sundays when it's football season, and we love us some good thai food or a quality steak and potatoes on a date night at Brickyard (aka, heaven on earth).
