more about me >

Hey! I’m Elise and I’ve been doing photography for over a decade and I started Light + Lace almost 5 years ago. I’m a mom and a wife. So I’ve been the bride on her wedding day, I’ve been the new mama holding my baby wishing she’d fall asleep for her newborn photos, and I’ve tried to calm my toddler down at our annual family photo session. I’ve been where you are. I GET YOU GIRL!

Most of my photography experience actually comes from my ministry background. I was a children’s and youth pastor for 8 years. So your kids running around at a session, or being super shy and nervous of a new surrounding, is nothing I can’t handle. I got you!!

A few weeks after your session I will send you your full online gallery and we can set up a time to walk through all your printing options with me so your memories are off the drive and on your wall.

you'll get your gallery


We will send a whole guide on how to get ready for your session and all our best tips to get the little one's prepared.

we'll capture your session


Don’t let this part stress you out! After you book I will send you a full style guide and I’ve got all my favorite clothing pieces for the whole family all in an amazon storefront so it’s even easier to select what your family will wear.

"Prior to finding Light and Lace Photography in 2022, we never took family pictures. Now we’re booking up to 5 shoots a year because they are the best! Elise makes you feel so comfortable during your session, it’s nothing but good vibes. Giving patience, authenticity, quality and fun times while capturing your memories. Highly recommend booking a session…or 5.

Light and Lace Photography, Elise & Brad are the perfect duo to capture your wedding day! I was so glad that we used them to capture our wedding day in September! I loved that she wanted to meet with us prior to even booking to make sure she would be the one that we want for our wedding day.

We have had multiple sessions and have loved every shot. She gets many fantastic shots in an impressively short amount of time— great for families with small kids. The outdoor locations that Elise chooses are beautiful, and you cannot go wrong picking her as a photographer during any season.

She's been capturing our family memories since my son was born (and will capture them until forever!) I can't say enough about the warmth, kindness, and professionalism she brings to each shoot - not to mention her swoon-worthy photos that grace our home:) I love capturing my growing family with her and love seeing her business grow! My only regret is not meeting her sooner to capture our wedding!

Elise photographed my wedding day and did a fantastic job. She captured memories I didn’t even think I would need. I will forever cherish the job she did and can not recommend her enough!!

Elise has a ton of patience with children and, somehow, magical words that get my toddlers to position for photos. She is very gentle with tiny ones and I appreciate that she asked to handle the newborn before doing so. I am very thankful we had this opportunity to work with Elise. Her professionalism and kindness left a positive impression. We will be back for more!

Helping other photographers grow and succeed is my jam! I took my business from a $600 Costco Camera Kit to a 6 FIGURE business. But it wasn't just talent that got me there, it was talent paired with humility, a drive for growth, and a passion for client experience. Let me help coach you through editing, marketing, back end business organization, social media, and we'll get you feeling confident in that manual mode!
