It's more than a photoshoot,
It's more than a coaching experience...
it's an Awakening

Hi, I'm Emma
I am a Somatic, Trauma Informed, Pleasure & Confidence Coach, Mentor, Speaker & Photographer...
Put simply, I am a Multi-Passionate Creatrix, a Joyous Misfit, living a heart-led life through Pleasure, Purpose and Play. And I am here to help YOU create a life that you love! A life that turns you on...
Everything that I offer you, whether it is my words & guidance, a sensual portrait, or my support through the coaching I offer, is here to inspire you, to show you the beauty within yourself and to elevate you to the next level. My mission is to provide you with a path to your unique Pleasure Code TM - to give you the clarity and awareness to enable you to fall in love with yourself and your life. I want to ignite you to live fully, in your joy and purpose, because when you do, not only do you lift yourself, you will lift everyone around you!
My life's journey has led to a burning passion to support you to free yourself from the 'good girl' labels, the should, the expectations, people pleasing and perfectionism, so that you can create a life that turns you on. I whole-heartedly believe that pleasure can heal, transform and awaken an understanding of ourselves, and the world around us, that we were not aware of before. It can evoke empathy, form new ideas and create change in the life we choose to live like nothing else can. It is a path to healing and creates so much beauty and joy to our lives even in our darkest days...
Put simply, I believe that the what leading from your pleasure brings to this world is ESSENTIAL to our human existence.
The question is, will you choose yourself? And in doing so, gift the magic of your power to the world?
PLEASURE is the ultimate act of rebellion
Let me explain... this one sentence holds full of the power of everything that I have lived, and therefore everything that I do!
Although I have been in business now for over a decade, my journey truly started in 2020. That was the year that I had a mental breakdown. Yes, that's right, a fully fledged, non-stop crying, couldn't talk, couldn't even breathe, breakdown. I was lost. FULLY lost. I had lost my sense of self, my purpose. I was over-worked, overwhelmed and exhausted by what my life had become! I didn't know what I wanted, who I was and I certainly had absolutely no idea of the journey I was about to take.
This was my lowest point. I had reached my late 30's and I had reached a point where I had no idea who I was. During the previous 15 years, I had followed the formula of all the 'shoulds' that society deems correct and good. I had studied to post-graduate level, I had secured a 'stable' and 'reliable' job, with good benefits and a pension, I had met a man and fell in love, together we bought a house, nurtured our pets, got married, had babies, and even reached our 10 year wedding anniversary.... and CRASH! I had done everything right! I had followed the rule book, followed the formula for a 'happy life' - but I had become more lost, alone and unclear than I had ever been in my life! Put simply, I had lost myself.
I had been so focused on building the 'perfect' life, that I had neglected myself, my needs and wants, until I got to a point that my body stopped functioning.
I see this now as the beginning of my story. Over the course of the next 2 years, I focused my attention on 'unlearning' everything that I had been programmed to believe was correct, and re-learning who I was. I begun to untangle myself from the 'shoulds' that I had created, the people pleasing, so that I could start to become the true me. I left my career of 15 years that was breaking me mentally, I left my marriage which had become unhealthy and toxic, I left my home of 13 years that I had literally built a part of, I left other relationships, friendships, that brought me pain, I left the old me and started living a life that brought me joy. I became clear on my mission, my purpose, and what I wanted to do with this one precious life. I am now living life on MY terms, in MY home, actually having fun with my beautiful children, and I am filled with love and joy everyday. And the cherry on top, is that I am doing this - my beautiful business, that makes my heart sing. Although my journey, like any growth, was painful, I wouldn't change any of it. It means that I am here now, guiding women (like you) to see the beauty within themselves. By loving - loving yourself, loving your relationships, loving what you do, loving your home, your environment, loving your life - you are choosing yourself... and this truly is, the ultimate act of rebellion!
Who are you?
"There is a duality in us all, all the time. We get to hold both. The loving, caring, Earth mother AND the raw, sexual, wild woman.
Having the courage to embrace ALL of who you are is the tipping point. It is the most courageous thing you can do. That is where you get to create a life that you love."
She's loving, caring, nurturing...
...She's a wild, sexy, Goddess
