I am Mary Beth Westward and welcome to Emmbee Photography!
This is where my kiddos, families, couples and events are showcased after each and every session. The focus is on natural light photography and lifestyle portraiture. I like to capture real moments… in places that mean something to my clients.
Emmbee Photography is based in a truly beautiful part of the country… New London, New Hampshire. Here, we wake in the morning to misty mountains, blue bird skies and crystal clear lakes. Every season is magical and the places to capture beautiful images are endless. It makes my job of on-location photography a breeze. When you photograph people in “their” environment, it lends a level of comfort and ease that makes a photo session so much more fun. Some clients have said, “I forgot you were even taking pictures.” And that, is a great compliment.
It is a wonderful moment… to share the new images with a client and to see the looks on their faces… when they look back at the day with a smile on their face and a tear in their eye… a great memory has been captured forever. My hope is that each image will tell a story… that what you see evokes the feelings of that moment. This is why I do what I do!
I started my business this past October… much sooner than I had planned. For those people that see me regularly, the one thing that I am rarely without is my camera. My photography increased ten-fold over the past few years thanks to my two little girls. Emma (8) and Marin (6). I have had a ball these past eight years documenting their childhood. And, my skills as a photographer have improved. At the request of a number of good friends, I did my first family shoot in late October. Then two more. Then more friends called and I realized that maybe this was something I could really do. How cool is this… to be able to take a hobby you really love and turn it into a business… and it’s a business that makes other people really happy.
With each shoot I learn more. More about people, style, & lighting… more about my Nikon cameras… more about the cool Lensbaby system I just acquired… and more about having my own business. I have also learned so much about editing. I can get blissfully lost in the world of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. With all the wonderful technology and software programs, I find myself with endless creative possibilities for each and every shot. Photography is my true love, but I have found the artist inside me with the editing process… the two combined are so rewarding.
So, for those of you that have made it to this page, I hope you enjoy looking at these images as much as I enjoyed capturing and creating them. If you are interested in my work, want to schedule a shoot or just have any questions, you can either email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 603.340.2278. I look forward to hearing from you!
