Beauty in the Everyday

Beauty in the Everyday

I am Emily Kerry, a Portland native. Tacoma,WA has been home since Fall 2006 and I have come to fiercely love this unique place – the City of Destiny! I have always enjoyed capturing life from behind the lens, but in the most recent years I have learned to do it more on purpose. Beauty In The Everyday Photography has been born out of a significant life-change – taking a deep breath and looking at things from a stiller perspective. It has been about slowing down to see Beauty In The Everyday – to take the long way, to pause in the midst of busyness and hurriedness, to see beauty in the midst of the broken, hope in the hurting, and purpose in the pain. It’s also about intention, to give the time and the space to look for ordinary and extraordinary beauty. It’s about squatting down, climbing higher, squeezing in, twisting and turning, and looking up, to capture a moment of life from a little bit of a different vantage point. This City of Destiny holds a significant part of me and my story, and where some of my deepest relationships exist – people who have become family to me, in a city that has become home to me.
