A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Elise spent much of her 20’s in a frantic search for adventure as a Chicago location scout and producer for advertising, catalog and film shoots. She's 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. She's addicted to green juice, dying her hair, everything vintage, and the smell of new school supplies. She's spent years studying posing specific to the female body of every shape and size. She will coach you through every pose and movement like a boss and never leave you hanging!
In a society that puts a camera in every hand but is quick to shame the selfie, her mission is to create a safe and supportive environment for female self expression. Empowering ALL women through photography is why what she does is so unique and special. It’s about so much more than a simple portrait, it’s about self awareness and self love. Join her in a movement to #existinphotos.
