Emylee is the brand strategist, photographer and house plant hoarder at Think Creative Collective. After growing a lifestyle photography business she began working with bloggers and creatives with business strategy and brand curation. That led her into the online space with educational webinars and courses when she met Abagail. They merged their two businesses into one mega powerhouse now known as Think Creative Collective. When Emylee isn’t stylizing the perfect Instagram shot with her latest fake succulent you can find her chugging (decaf) coffee, failing at Whole 30 and convincing her husband that they absolutely need to buy another house plant.
