Hello and welcome! I am Elizabeth…dreamer, photographer and accidental business owner (in that order). Growing up, when confronted with the “what do you want to be when you grow up” question, I never knew the answer. I kept plugging along, waiting for the answer to fall out of the sky and hit me in the head. Yeah…that never happened.
After high school, I was still at a loss for an answer to a question many of us are asked as young as age five. So, when I went to college, I did the most sensible thing a girl who hated science and math could do…I selected a communication arts major. I loved writing, so I figured communications might be my calling.
I worked for my dad’s computer software company for three years before it dawned on me that I wanted to start my own business. The only problem was figuring out what type of business. In my mind, photography was just a hobby, something I loved. Before I knew it, somehow, the little hobby I’d had since senior year of college grew into a bit more than a hobby. I like to think it was like the mustard seed, very small at first, but over time it was nurtured and grew.
In a somewhat "spur of the moment" decision, I started my photography business in 2012 (I still can’t believe that was five years ago!!!) and it has been both my greatest challenge and one of my greatest joys. I love capturing fleeting moments. I love beautiful light. I love families. I love couples in love. I love high school seniors trying to figure out their answer to the “what do you want to be” question. I love the experiences and the people I meet through photography. I do not love taxes. Hey, we can’t love everything! ;)
Photography has taught me over and over again that every day is a precious gift. Moments frozen in time by the camera are collections of memories. Lets not forget those fleeting moments. Lets make sure those memories are preserved in photographs so that they may be treasured and passed down to future generations.
