I'm Elise

A fine art motherhood & family photographer located in Minneapolis, Minnesota

Hello friend, and welcome! Thanks for stopping by. I'm a Minneapolis-based motherhood & family photographer with a heart for capturing the beauty and significance of ordinary life. I photograph because I believe that life - in all of its big and small moments - is worth celebrating. My goal is to create romantic, timeless images that you will cherish for generations to come.
I'm a believer in Jesus Christ and my aim is bring Him glory in all that I do. I'm a wife to the boy that I've liked since I was 16 and a mama to our growing family of little ones. I love exploring new places, but home with my little family is truly where I am happiest; being a wife and mama is one of my greatest joys.

SPRING IN MINNESOTA

I'm a lover of everything about spring - especially the flowers that grow year after year, despite the long MN winters.

Favorites

Curly-haired little ones

...thankfully, I have two of these at home!

II.

SLOW SATURDAY MORNINGS

At our house, they usually include a family "breakfast date" - even if that just means running to the grocery store for fresh donuts.

III.

LAVENDER

Anything with lavender has my heart.

IV.

I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.
