for photographers

hi, i'm elyse

To me, in-home lifestyle newborn photography is both fulfilling and challenging in ways I could not have expected when I began my journey. Safely handing mushy new babies while managing postpartum parents and wrangling toddlers all in a home with lighting, colors, and personal items you are now seeing for the first time - it can feel a like a lot (because it is a lot).

I have photographed over 300 babies in their homes both in suburban and urban areas and have learned quite a few things along the way. All of my education is customized to you - I am here to meet you where you are and get you to where you want to be!

This is not just for folks who want to do newborns; there are options for any type of photographer in any step of their journey.

In the paraphrased words of Amy Poehler - I'm not a regular mentor, I'm a cool mentor! Get ready to feel like you're sussing out issues with your childhood bestie. My approach is helpful, kind, and fun.
