Emily Ruth

Last Fall I had the opportunity to photograph one of my younger sisters. She's the second to youngest in a line of eight siblings. Lover of music + photography + probing thoughts + quirky humor. She's an old soul to the core. Perhaps a bit awkward and shy at first but give her your time and you'll soon discover her genuine ability to listen and generously loving heart. You'll hardly see her without her ukulele (she even takes it on hikes in the mountains) or wearing one of the hats from her vast collection. Our family would be incomplete without her. She has our daddy's eyes, his love of the Smokies and our mother's love of old + beautiful things. People love her sense of style but, more importantly, her unique take on life. She is her own person in this beautifully quiet way.  Today, I am proud to introduce you to her. 


Meet Emily.
