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!

"I came across Ashwood VA whilst searching for a virtual assistant and I'm so glad I found her! She has been fantastic from the start and always there to offer guidance, new ideas, support when I'm stuck and works at a pace I am comfortable with. Since working together the biggest transformation is my CRM. Right from our first phone call, I have had more clarity and feel a lot less overwhelmed, giving me more time to focus on photography and other aspects of my business.

You know that saying, "two heads are better than one"? Well, it's true. Whether it's bouncing around ideas or ticking tasks off your to-do list, a virtual assistant can really help tackle the everyday challenges in your business.

And when you're stuck or unsure about something, your virtual assistant will either have the answers, be ready to figure things out or connect you with someone who can help.

Together, you form an unstoppable duo with a shared vision and drive to elevate your business.

If you've got an eagle eye, you've probably seen this quote in quite a few of my pics: "Do more of what makes you happy."

I was in a pretty dark place for a while, and what's strange is I didn't even realise it. 

I was stuck in this never-ending hamster wheel, running at full speed and never giving myself time to reflect on what really made me happy.

But when I was unexpectedly made redundant, everything changed.

It was my turning point. 

I grabbed life by the balls and seized the opportunity to do more of what makes me happy. 

And that's when I became a VA!

The VA industry is a very very special place. A lot of us work alone, but we never feel alone. Collaboration over competition isn't just a phrase thrown around; it's the absolute heartbeat of the community. 

And it's no exaggeration that VAs are the superheroes of small businesses. 

As the fabulous @va_mentor sums it up, "We wear so many hats – organisers, strategists, tech wizards, social media managers, do'ers and the list goes on. We keep businesses running smoothly and help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams."

Honestly, words couldn't possibly express how grateful I am to this incredible industry, the supporters, my fellow VAs, and, of course, my amazing clients. 

You've all given me the opportunity to do more of what makes me happy!

Happy International VA Day! 🎉🎉🎉

A question I often get from photographers seeking help with social media is about getting shoots over to me.

And I get it, your time is precious, the last thing you want is a messy toing and froing about social media!

So, I have a really easy system that effortlessly integrates into your existing workflow.

Here's how it works:

After sending the gallery to your clients, you just fill out a quick online form to share the gallery link, list any suppliers, and specify anything special you want to highlight about the shoot. You can even upload a client questionnaire if it has the relevant info.

And that's it! 

I'll take care of the rest, crafting engaging social media posts and giving you a consistent online presence.

Got questions about this or anything else? Drop them below, or shoot me a message.
