Happy Mother's Day!

Oh hello, darling.

I'm Elise!

I am a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago spent much of my 20’s in a frantic search for adventure as a Chicago location scout and producer for advertising, catalog and film shoots. I've ridden a camel across the Sahara, swam in a cage surrounded by sharks, and scouted for the perfect hot tub to fill with hot chocolate and marshmallows. In a society that puts a camera in every hand but is quick to shame the selfie, my mission is to create a safe and supportive environment for female self expression. Join me in a movement to #existinphotos.

This is Victoria and her two loves. A fellow mompreneur and the fierce talent behind the fabulous tulle skirts that we just love styling in our shoots!

Meadow.

Winner of her school spelling bee, this fifth grader placed 6th at the Grand Rapids regionals competing against middle-schoolers! She's incredibly smart and beautiful both inside and out.

Alivia.

This sassy third grader might just say see ya fourth grade and go right on to fifth! No seriously, skip that grade! She will also be joining her sister in their very first 5k at Girls on the Run in a couple weeks.

A Special First Birthday

My sweet baby boy turns one today and man what a ride it's been. 2014 and 2015 were pretty incredible years for me. Getting married, having a baby and starting a business has just rocked my world in such a great way. Making the move from Chicago was scary but I've fallen for Grand Rapids, the place my son will always call home. The first year as mom was HARD. Maybe people tell you that but it doesn't seem to matter. They tell you it's worth it, and I sure do believe them.
