10 Things Readers Would Be Surprised to Know About Me
Hello!! I’m Emma…a boudoir photographer, published author and self-love advocate with one mission…to help you find the comfort, courage, and confidence to be exactly who you are!
I’m new around here so there’s probably a whole lot you don’t know about me, but here’s 10 things you may be surprised to know.
- I am a Yorkshire Lass living in Canada. I have lived here since March 2011 with my hubby (also from the UK). I once wrote in my diary that I would emigrate. Back then, I imagined I would be living under the hot sun on a beach in Australia, but instead, I am living in temperatures that humans should not be allowed to live in…and I love it! As I write this, it’s -28 outside and I’m sat inside all cozy in my pyjamas!!
- My hubby and I have been married since July 2010 (together since January 2007). My wedding dress and shoes are on display in a glass cabinet in my closet.
- We have two rescue bunnies living in our house. Bugsy was living under our doorstep and the coyotes were not far away, so one -40 day in February, we kept our door open until he hopped right in. Nova belonged to a friend, but her son lost interest, so we happily took her in. It is my retirement dream to have an acreage full of rescue animals. I was brought up on a pig farm.
- When I was 8 years old, I dreamed of being a Police Officer. At the age of 21, my dream came true. That career lasted six years and ended when I moved to Canada. By that time, I had realised that it wasn’t a career suited to who I am.
- I have had an interest in photography since I was a little girl. I never considered it as a career though, until I had to make a change. I started out by shooting anything and everything until I found my passion…women’s empowerment. I now specialise in boudoir and have my own studio at home.
- Twenty-some years ago, I learned to play the piano, but I gave up. My hubby and I now learn together and have been doing since June 2021.
- When I was about 10 years old, a farmer told me that his grandson could say the alphabet backwards and he challenged me to learn…so I did. Anyone who knows me knows I love a challenge!
- I used to play underwater hockey (octopush), and now I do kickboxing and pole dancing.
- I’ve only been reading consistently since 2016. I set myself a goal of 12 books and managed 11. Each year, I add a few more. This year I am aiming for 36!
- Never have I ever drank a cup of coffee!! Probably the most surprising of them all, eh?! I cannot stand the taste or the smell.
