Hi, I’m Elyse’.

What I Do

I’m a photographer specializing in portrait work for Women.

Who It’s For

Small business owners who are bored with the traditional headshot. Women who want their customers to really see and connect with them the moment they land on their website.

Why It’s Special

I aim to create an experience that is comfortable (even if you hate being in front of the camera!), easy (online gallery with web + high res photos at your fingertips) and dare I say… FUN? (We’ll have fun, I promise!)

How It Works

We’ll set up a call to discuss ideas.. whether you have 0, 1 or 10. You’ll have a chance to tell me about yourself and your business… besides shooting, that’s my favorite part!

We’ll set date and location.

The day of the shoot we’ll take a lot of photos in different spots at our specified location. I’ll let you lead the way or gently guide you if you’d prefer. After we wrap up, I’ll head home and (obsessively) edit the best images.

Within one week you’ll have an online gallery to begin using that day!

  1. I’m a Virgo through and through — buying my planner at the start of the year is an important, beloved ritual.

  2. I got married barefoot and don’t like wearing pants.

  3. I believe laughter is the best medicine and it’s one of the most valued qualities in the people around me — Impractical Jokers is my absolute favorite TV show ever.

  4. I believe in the beauty of animals and strive to eat as little animal products as possible. I’ll be vegan one day!

  5. I could wander through Cinque Terre, Italy with a gelato in one hand and my camera in the other, for the rest of time.
