It would be an honor to write your story in light.
"Beauty telling is a vulnerable and sacred process. My vision is to create a safe space for movement and expression which then takes thoughtful form in intimate, fine art portraits."
I was sitting cross-legged on the couch that evening, babies in bed, beverage in hand, and I was READY. Let’s DO this…weird re-branding thing…
Twenty minutes later found me slumping off the couch like a frustrated 12 year old, and I looked at my husband (and amazing second shooter) Joel, and exclaimed, “I just have no idea what to say!! I am the MOST awkward-About-Me-page-writer EVER!”
But here's the thing. I love LOVE taking pictures of people who say, “I take the MOST awkward pictures EVER!” or “We are literally the MOST awkward couple you will ever shoot!” I love showing you how NOT awkward you are.
I was literally just told this by a couple a few weeks ago. However, this is the text she sent me just three days ago when I sent them a sneak peek image from their snowy engagement shoot while waiting for my film to get back from the lab…
“Okay that’s so unbelievably epic and beautiful I might cry…”
Well, there you go. We’re not as awkward as we think we are. But we ARE all just humans trying to figure this whole thing out- you’re just trying to do this whole wedding-planning thing most likely for the first time, or trying to find your bravery to book that boudoir shoot, and I’m just trying to make a living doing what I love as an artist, wife, mama by day, and an awkward web designer/social media-business-builder by night.
It all involves a lot of beverages.
So, hi! I’m Elizabeth Selena…and I write awkward “About Me” pages….
"Elizabeth is a fine art wedding and portraiture photographer in the Pacific and Inland Northwest. She deeply loves creating through a process of capturing form in unconventional and unexpected ways; turning the ordinary into something extraordinary and surprisingly beautiful; almost a redemption through imagery. She is passionate about loving her two little boys (and their papa), and letting her wanderlust have its way...especially if you are planning a destination wedding in Spain..."
