hello! my name is emily. and this is my hemlock adventures blog. ’emlock if you will. eastern hemock is notably my favorite kind of tree. it’s not poisonous like others with its name. i love the way it reflects light and stays in shades of green year-round.

i’m a self-taught photographer that grew up on the coast of maine, although currently i live in the woods of new hampshire.

i am interested in all things people and nature. my BS is in women’s studies & sociology and i hold an MS in sociology. in the past few years i have traveled the country leading youth volunteers on conservation work projects in remote wilderness areas and busy national parks and forests.

i like to play in the woods, eat extra-sharp cheddar cheese, travel, and nerdify the world.

you can find me elsewhere on the web:

    Hi! I’m a children’s librarian doing a presentation on the Appalachian trail for kids. Would it be OK if I used a couple of your beautiful photos in the slide show?

    • Hi Krista – I wouldn’t mind at all if you used a couple of my photos in your presentation. That’s wonderful! Not that it matters since it’s for kids, but if you end up sharing it publicly it would be nice if you could add a photo credit somewhere in the presentation. Just “Photo by Emily Lord” or something would be great. That really is just if you’re sharing it publicly, though.

  4. A wonderful blog find. Pleased to meet you. :)
