Welcome Home ~ Emma Case

Last weekend I traveled up to Edinburgh. Woweee, it’s a beautiful place! So very picturesque and the people are super friendly. But this trip wasn’t really about the travel this time. I was booked in to the Welcome Home Workshop held by the lovely Emma Case.  To say I was nervous is an understatement to say the least. Emma’s work is amazing and the thought of being in a room with her, Pete, Lee and Dawn from Shutterbox films and the rest of the wonderful photographers gave me feelings of anxiousness beyond belief. Kinda like the first day of school. What if in all my nervousness I say something absurd? What if nobody likes me? What if I’m just not good/cool enough?! As soon as I walked into Studio 128 that fine Monday, all my nerves floated away. I walked into the warm hugs of Emma, Pete, Lee and Dawn and instantly I knew that I was going to be A-OK.

Emma is unbelievably talented, engaging and more than anything, genuine. She got me thinking. She got me feeling. She moved me and inspired me in ways that really spoke to my own heart. I cried 4 times that day. Possibly more…I lost count. And no, not because I was bullied on the playground as I had feared, but because Emma’s creative genius stems so much from an emotional place. And I truly identified with that connection.

As part of the workshop Emma showed us her approach when photographing couples. And we were incredibly lucky to have the chance to capture the adorable couple that is Lee and Dawn. These two are sooooo cute! We also then got a chance to snap each other with polaroid cameras and as a group of photographers used to being behind the camera, it took a little while to get used to being the subject!

Today they are holding their London workshop and I wish I could be there to do it all over again. I came away from the workshop feeling so happy, inspired and supported. I met a group of amazing photographers that were so open and willing to share. I have found a new home. Thank you Emma Case.
