What to Expect

I want to thank you for choosing me, Elizabeth, as your artist! I am really excited to work with you while we create and capture amazing memories!

I place my focus on capturing memories!  I believe that pictures are much more than a snapshot for the day; they are the key to never letting a wonderful memory fade and the window to the life and soul of those captured for generations after to enjoy.

My preference is typically to work on location as it creates the most diverse backdrops and opportunities to showcase a natural, vibrant you! But I also enjoy stepping inside, especially during the cold months. My goal with each session I photograph is to tell the story of you and your family. We are each wonderfully unique and we all have a story worth remembering! Some families are zany while others are calm and cool and then of course we have the urbanites and the outdoorseys.

I love getting to incorporate locations or items that help tell your family’s story! For example, if little Jimmy has donned nothing but his froggy rain boots for months now, let’s capture that magic! Or if your little princess refuses to leave the house without her tutu, lets create beautiful images to always remember this moment and add to the princess décor in her room! I love documenting the stages of children! May that be a huge beautiful toothless smile (which I believe in celebrating) or the first steps of your not-so-baby baby. These stages are but fleeting moments. They are special and magical for your child(ren). It’s in the not-so-perfect smile and the little pouty face that that your heart strings will be tugged when looking back in years to come.

Last, I’d like to share with you my vision for my work. I am an artist; I never had any skill with a paintbrush or a pencil despite a deep desire to create. It wasn’t until I picked up a camera that I finally found my artistic medium. I create fine art photography and as such, the work that I create is intended to be your art. I don’t believe there is anything more valuable or precious than our families! They are your masterpiece! There is nothing more welcoming than wonderful images of a happy family adorning the walls of a home!

I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your family! If you have any questions before our session please don’t hesitate to call me. My personal cell is: 217-853-14667. Here’s to the memories we’ll soon be creating of your works of heART!
