I believe in the power of those in between shots, the candid moments that are the glue that bind your family story together. I photograph families in a fun and creative way.

Hey, I'm Elise.

I believe in capturing timeless moments. 

The feeling of capturing raw emotions never ceases to amaze me. It’s easy to notice and capture authentic moments when I am seamlessly sinking into a scene. 

Starting out as an English teacher, I fell in love with creative ideas and becoming a storyteller. Little did I know how much photography would one day mean to me. It is my passion that delivers photos with warmth and personality. 

Born and raised in New York, I currently reside in Long Island. There are white sand beaches, vineyards, historic buildings, and so much more. We have a beautiful island at our disposal for your lifestyle photography. Let’s make it our canvas. 

Although I was born and raised in New York, I also photograph many families and couples along the white sandy South Florida beaches from West Palm Beach through Miami and along the South Florida Eastern Coastline in between!
Whether it be a family photo shoot in the comfort of your own home, a family event, or a hobby you enjoy, I want to see and feel you in your element. I find joy in traveling across the country and capturing inherent love in families. Allow me to preserve your experience for you to cherish for a lifetime. My promise will always be to provide the most comfortable, easy going, and fun experience with  the people you cherish the most.

Hey, I'm Elise.

I believe every woman has the power to change the world, if only they have the confidence in themselves to do so.

It's too easy as a woman to live beneath your potential because of self-doubt. As an English teacher, I saw it all the time in my students... and in 2018, with a startling realization, I saw that it was me, too. And so I started doing photography.

Seeing in myself how much fear and doubt held me back, I knew other women were dealing with this, too, and that if I could equip and empower them, they could go be the world-changers they were born to be. 

Boudoir photography has an amazing way of showing women their true beauty--stripping away the lies we've believed for so long and showing us who we are. Once we see ourselves clearly? We can do anything.

Such a fantastic day at the  Planting Fields of Oyster Bay on the Gold Coast of Long Island.  Fall  in New York  is super colorful and there are so many local parks to choose from.  You can even have a personal and private shoot in your own backyard!

Beach shoots at Sunset are my favorite! Perfect Golden Hour light hit the beach just right for this fun family shoot in Jensen Beach.  Jensen Beach is part of North Hutchinson Island in Port St Lucie county and has miles of beautiful beach coastline to accommodate your family portrait shoot!

How beautiful is Fall on Long Island? The North Shore in Suffolk County, provides so many gorgeous locations! This awesome family portrait shoot happened at Avalon Duck Pond in St James NY - one of my favorite family photography backdrops for sure!
