I’m Elysa. I live in Holland, Michigan, the state where the weather is a mystery every day, which makes being a photographer that much more thrilling! I love how beautiful a session on a snowy winter day can be, the crisp colors of the leaves on a fall day or the vibrant colors of spring flowers, but I live for those perfect summer day sessions where shoes are totally optional!

Photography has been my passion since 2005 and has been pursued as a career since 2008. There is nothing more important to me, as a photographer, than to capture your memories in the most beautiful way possible. Photography is not just a business for me, but something that I truly enjoy.

I consider it a privilege to be the one to capture the first photos of a new little ones life and an honor to be apart of your wedding day. Moments such as families coming together for photos, capturing the smile of success as you prepare to graduate, photos of you anticipating the arrival of a new child and making memories with pictures of your favorite kids in the world. These special moments are an honor for me to be a part of and I always strive to capture it as beautifully as possible.

Creativity and uniqueness is important in my photography and I always focus on making sure to capture all the fun and natural moments in your sessions. Laughs, giggles and natural expressions are always the most memorable photos.

Being a mother myself, I understand that children don’t always like to cooperate in photos and a toddler would rather run around then sit still. I will always work my best and take extra time in these situations to make sure you are completely satisfied with the end result of your session.

Because let’s be honest, the day you have a session scheduled with a kid involved is the day your child will nap the worst and act as if they have consumed 100 lb. of sugar. It’s inevitable, but I will do everything possible to make sure your kids have fun and hopefully they will have as little tears as possible to make it an enjoyable experience for everyone!
