Hi! I’m Elise a lifestyle newborn and family photographer and videographer who focuses on capturing the authentic moments of my families. My images highlights the tiny details of a newborn to the organic natural moments of a family. My goal is to document you with your family now to be treasured for life.
A little more about me. I married my husband in October of 2011. We have two beautiful girls who keep us busy. They bring us so much joy and I love capturing their everyday.
I got started in photography a little over 10 years ago when I got my first DSLR. I always had a camera with me, one so small it fit inside an Altoids can. Once I got my DSLR I wanted to learn everything I could about taking pictures and shot in manual from that point on. I invested many hours educating myself. I also practice daily. I knew when I was a mom, I wanted to take the best pictures I could.
I started taking clients back in 2014 and found I love capturing families and meeting new people. The relationships I have built with my clients has been the most rewarding part of this job. I love seeing their families grow over the years. What I enjoy the most is sharing parenthood stories with my clients. It helped me a lot knowing I wasn't not alone on this journey. My passion for photographing other families has continued to grow every year.
My passion is lifestyle sessions. (You can learn more about lifestyle photography here) I love capturing families in their home environments. It is where they are most comfortable and relaxed. It truly helps me to capture the authentic moments. I also recently started offering family films (video) as well. I feel in love with the process of recording clips of my own family, that I knew I had to offer this to other families as well. My favorite video of my family is below. It is two years old and I still treasure it.
Photography has become a blessing for me. It has been a great creative outlet for me since being a mom and giving up my full time job. It allows me to get that little break from my girls and truly meet some amazing people.
I love documenting my own family and would love to capture the love of yours.
