Hey there, I’m Elizabeth — an award-winning photographer who creates editorial, lifestyle portrait and fashion photography for clients who want to excite, entice, and engage their audience on social media!
As a personal brand photographer, I help clients who are struggling with their marketing by deep diving into a business’ brand and ideal client profile; determining the message and stories that will resonate with their audience, convey their brand message and tell their unique stories and passions; turn luke-warm leads into raving fans; and create beautiful, magazine-worthy photographs to propel their brand forward online and make their marketing magnetic.
By applying her signature high-contrast style and unique point of view to editorial photography, I create photographs that embody the message and vision of the brand with which I am working, and deliver unique images to play to the brand’s strengths while telling a compelling story and making a clear, concise statement for maximum impact.
I have a Bachelor of the Arts degree from Rutgers University in New Jersey and a Certification in Fashion Brand Essentials from Parsons: The New School in New York City.
My photographs have been published in magazines such as American Librarian and Asian Restaurant News as well as Denver Style Magazine’s blog. I’ve been interviewed for publications such as Fundera and My Corporation.
I have lectured on posing for better portraits at Princeton Public Library and will speak at ShutterFest 2019, an international photographer’s conference, on making beautiful images when shooting in challenging locations.
Before following my husband from New Jersey to Colorado, I worked for fashion brands including ATMOS NYC and Elie Tahari. I have also provided event and brand photography for companies including New Jersey Young Professionals, Princeton Public Library, and NJ Social Media Society.
I am a member in good standing with Professional Photographers of America and the American Society of Media Professionals.
When she’s not applying her edgy, editorial eye to her photography, you can find her indulging in a late brunch of breakfast burritos and MmmMimosas at Snooze BoCo; digging into her favorite dish—Texas-size nachos and a house margarita—at Waterloo in Louisvill; failing to knock over pins with my team, The Pin Ups, as a member of the Front Range Sunday Night Rollers LGBT+ allies bowling league in Lafayette, CO; shouting at my TV during an Eagles game; or curled up on the sofa with my two cats, Pixel and Nina, sipping glasses Clifford Bay sauvignon blanc and binge watching episodes of some incredibly trashy, informative, true-crime dramas on Investigation Discovery or a totally-engrossing episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Don’t sashay away!
I love nothing more than a cup of coffee and good conversation; let’s make a date and chat about how I can help you elevate your brand!
Still want to know more about me? Aw, thank you!
Here are 10 things you always wanted to know about me (but were afraid to ask)
- I broke my left arm while “figure skating” when I was 10, trying to teach myself how to do a triple toe loop… on roller skates.
- I was on my high school diving team for four years but never competed once because I could not nail a reverse dive.
- I was scouted by a modeling agency at the Cherry Hill Mall when I was eight-years-old, but it was the 80s, so my mom assumed the poor agent was actually trying to kidnap me for some Satanic ritual and gave the woman a very severe verbal bitch slap.
- I am absolutely obsessed with my Passion Planner! I spend waaaaay too much at Two Hands Paperie on pens and washi tape–to the point that Jaime “jokes” that I should form a twelve-step program for stationary addicts. I even have an Instagram account dedicated to my Passion Planners: ERW_Plans and a YouTube channel!
- I am a published poet.
- As a teenager, I refused to drink water. I existed completely on Wawa coffee and bottles of Surge. Trust me, if you’ve had South Jersey water, you’d understand!
- I was a Girl Scout for 8 years; I hated eating the cookies, but was always my troop’s top cookie sales woman–I was even sent to a Girl Scout leadership program based, in part, on my strong sales performance.
- I switched majors my sophomore year of college from photography to psychology…and I truly believe it makes me a better photographer to have studied both. Let me buy you a coffee, and I’ll tell you why!
- From the age of 5 until I was twelve, whenever someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always said “The First Female President of the United States!” Not just President, but the first woman president. No exceptions. I abandoned this dream when, in 1993, my mom emphatically told me that I could never be the first female POTUS, because Hilary Clinton was going to get the job before I would be old enough to run. Note: I would have been eligible to run for the first time in 2016. Thanks, Mom.
- I finally got to take a private figure skating lesson like I’d always dreamed about in 2015, at the age of 34, from a former Olympic figure skater. After 55 minutes, I fell attempting…a toe loop jump (again!) and broke my tailbone.
