UK Virtual Assistant Emilie from Ashwood VA smiles as she cradles her VA awards

Hello, I'm Emilie...

I'm obsessed with my job, providing diligent virtual assistant services to photographers and empowering them with the freedom and opportunity to fulfil their vision.

My approach allows you to fully immerse yourself in your passions while I take care of the behind-the-scenes tasks.

With my cost-effective packages that adapt to your varying needs, I provide the breathing space you need to focus on what you love most – capturing moments behind the lens, without the weight of administrative tasks.

Since childhood, I've been fascinated by the "how's" and "why's". and that curiosity has stayed with me. I love the challenge of learning something new, or finding out why something does or doesn't work (which comes in very handy with the ever-evolving nature of social media!)

It's this curiosity and willingness to think outside the box that empowers me to bring fresh ideas to your business. I offer a unique perspective that can rejuvenate your business and help you stand out.

With Ashwood VA, I swoop in, giving you the support you need to focus on what you do best – capturing those magical moments through the lens. So, if you're a photographer looking for specialist support, let's chat!

Get in touch

When it comes to finding a VA you can't do any better than Emilie! She is fantastic and has absolutely transformed my business. Since she came on board I feel clearer and more organised and it has been such a pleasure working with her every day. From the moment we started working together she integrated into my business seamlessly, picking up the tasks I assigned to her quickly and doing them to a high standard. Emilie is very detail oriented, fantastic at using her initiative and isn't afraid to make helpful suggestions when it comes to streamlining processes and using both of our time as efficiently as possible. As a neurodivergent person I came to her with a list of things I was struggling with. She took the time to listen, ask the right questions and take it all on board and came up with a workflow that works well for both of us. I know how hard as a business owner to let go and outsource things when you are used to controlling it all yourself. But Emilie has proven to be the thing I needed all along and I'm so grateful to have her on board. I can't recommend her enough!

It's easy to know when you need a helping hand in your business, but knowing what to outsource can be tricky.

But don't fret - I'm here with some tips:

Over the next week, make a note of each task you do (or wish you could do).

At the end of the week, pop each of those tasks into one of these categories:

👉🏻 Things you don’t know how to do
👉🏻 Things you hate to do
👉🏻 Things you don’t have time to do
👉🏻 Things only you can do

And voila! Anything that falls into the first three categories can be added to your list of things to outsource.

Let's get back to inbox zero:

•  Schedule specific times each day to read and reply to emails. Constantly jumping in and out of your inbox drains your productivity.

•  Apply the four D's: If a task takes less than 2 minutes, do it immediately. If it requires more time, defer it for later. If you don't need it, delete it. If someone else can handle it, delegate it.

•  Unsubscribe relentlessly. Click that unsubscribe button for mailing lists that bring no value to your inbox. Be ruthless!

•  Organise emails using folders or labels. Don't treat your inbox as a to-do list or storage space. If you've deferred an email using the four D's, add it to your task list or assign it to a designated "to-do" folder.

•  Save time and effort by reusing parts of your emails. Make use of canned emails, templates, quick parts, or text expander programs to eliminate repetitive typing.
