First and foremost, I am a professional. When my dad opened his studio in 1995, I was the guinea pig. The “go-to” subject for Dad’s next idea for his senior portrait clients. I graduated high school and college and then went to work for him. The priceless years spent working with my Dad have allowed me to pursue a career of my own. I have been in the photography industry for 15 years, I earned a bachelors degree in Photographic Arts from the University of Central Oklahoma and a National Certification from the Professional Photographers of America. Certified Professional Photographer is a title held by fewer than 40 photographers in the state. As a certified professional, I commit to learning more about the art of photography every day.
In March of 2012, Elise was appointed to a position on the Board of Directors for the Professional Photographers of Oklahoma.
I have been blessed with a beautiful marriage to a man who loves me very much and desires the best for me and our family. Matt and I have a beautiful daughter, Anna, who is spunky, sweet, loving and caring with a HUGE ball of energy twisted up inside of her!
My education and experience have taught me what I know about my career, but they are not what make me who I am. My desire and love for the emotion and importance of documenting events in your life are what make me a passionate photographer …these are the reasons that I have clients return to me every year. These are the reasons that I hope to sit with you and let us chat about what you desire from your portrait session. Whether it’s a wedding, baby, birthday, high school graduation or simply time for a new family portrait to display above the mantel, this time in your life is important to me and I want to help you capture it. My clients love wall portraits, 16×20 and larger, to display in their homes and share their stories with all who visit them.
Call me so we can document the joy, passion, and love that your family has for one another.
