I'm Elise

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

Hello friend, and welcome! I'm Elise, a fine art photographer capturing the good and the beautiful parts of your life. I photograph because I believe that life - in all of its big and small moments - is worth celebrating, treasuring, and remembering.

As a mama to three young children, I know firsthand how quickly these days go by - how easy it is for them to blur together in your mind and how desperately you want to remember each moment. I believe that the ordinary moments are often the ones that matter most, and it brings me great joy to help you document your everyday.
I specialize in natural light, film-inspired in-home sessions and have a soft spot for any outdoor session that includes flowers. I create timeless imagery that is meant to be cherished 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 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.




There is beauty in your story, and it is worth documenting.
