We had the good fortune of connecting with Emily Sayre and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Emily, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Amil and I had been working together doing dance photography solely for my needs for about 4 months. I used those pictures to market myself on social media and such. Through that, we actually received a request to do a photoshoot. We both love dance photography so we hit the ground running in launching Fluid Frames so we could serve more dancers more professionally.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Fluid Frames is the pairing of dynamic photography and hands-on technique guidance so dancer’s receive stunning shots from a photographer’s eye AND a dancer’s eye. Amil frames everything so beautifully and Emily watches that the dancer’s training looks good in every shot. It’s something that brings dancers a sense of ease on the shoot because they can trust their years of training will be at the forefront. That’s something that sets us apart.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We love to shoot around Buffalo Bayou, the Museum District, and downtown Houston. Those areas really show a great side of Houston with natural beauty and architecture mixed together. And then, of course, we love a good coffee shop. When possible, we meet at a coffee shop to edit after a shoot. Some of our favorites are Revival Market, Agora, and Campesino Coffee House. Each very different from the next but with a great personality of it’s own. That’s so Houston.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
The dance industry has been incredibly supportive! So many dancers booked with us before we even had a business name and we are forever grateful for that.
