Q&A with Michelle Herrick- Photographer

Want to know more about the fabulous women behind EMMA? Well, we are starting a new regular blog post that feature Q&A’s with some EMMA usual suspects! Our first one is with photographer Michelle Herrick!

EMMA Magazine: Where did you go to school?

Michelle Herrick: I have actually attended a couple colleges between Northern California (where I’m from) and Arizona, but unfortunately never finished out my degree, which was supposed to be in Communications. Eventually I’ll get back to it, but I’m not sure if it will be in Communications, or not. I’m kind of a sucker for Forensic Science…random, I know.

EM: Long term career goals?
MH: For my long term goal I would love to add several major brands and labels to my client list; I love shooting campaigns and creating and working through that process.

EM:Favorite TV show?
MH: I’m a BIG fanatic of the show SMASH!! Absolutely love it…the music…the story lines…everything. It’s like Glee, but for grown ups. Oh, and there is a new show called The Following…a bit creepy, but I am totally hooked.

EM: Guilty pleasure?
MH: Oh man, I have so many 😉 For my tastebuds, I am a total sucker for anything salty/sweet…absolutely CANNOT resist! Liberty Market’s salt river bar is something worth living for…I promise. And for my mindless downtime, I usually turn to Real Housewives of anything…I’m ashamed, but it’s true.

EM: What are 3 things in your bag at all times?
MH: Softlips Pearl Tinted Lip Conditioner/Sunscreen, business cards, & gum.

EM: Any hobbies?
MH: Hobbies…besides photography? Well other than hanging with my kiddos, I love playing volleyball, working on design projects, dreaming up fun, glamours shoots, or getting together with my best girls and laugh til we cry.

EM: What do you love about EMMA?
MH: I cannot say enough good things about EMMA. The creativity of the editors, the design, the concept, the whole package…it’s spectacular! What I really love is the idea behind EMMA. That these ladies collectively pulled their knowledge, their love, their resources together to create something amazing…such an inspiration!

Alejandra likes ice cream, dancing and pretty things. You can usually find her exploring downtown Phoenix, where she lives, or singing to herself while writing in a coffee shop.
