Welcome! My name is Elissa and I have had a camera in my hand for the better part of the past 40 years. I took a leap of faith in 2006 and made a midlife career change to professional photographer. I eventually discovered my passion for styled beauty/editorial photography and boudoir in 2010 and that's when the magic began to happen!
I love what I do. My goal when working with clients is to not only creative artistic portraits, but also create a transformation in how people see themselves. We all have our hang ups about our age, our size/shape, or some other aspect of ourselves we find imperfect. A lot of us hate how we look in photographs. I want to change that if I possibly can. Everyone should have at least one portrait of themselves they love.
Most portrait sessions take place at our private, full-service studio in Johnson City, Tennessee. We're located on the third floor of a quiet office/retail building. Our loft-like suite has high ceilings and beautiful natural light. The space is easily transformed to create many different looks with a full array of studio lighting and backdrops. Location, outdoor, and destination photo shoots are also available.
The studio is located in the Northridge Centre complex at 3119 Bristol Highway in Johnson City, Tennessee. It's not far from the intersection of State of Franklin Road and I26. From the front of the building, look for the main entrance under the awning beside of Rumors Salon. Take the stairs up to the third floor and the studio is to the left at the end of the hallway, Suite 305.
