My name is Renee and I am a mom of a sweet and active little boy with another on the way, a wife to my very best friend, and high school teacher by day. I have two cats, and a rambunctious lab named Lily. I am blessed to have the life I do, and am inspired by the world around me. Photography has always been a part of my life and I can’t begin to describe the thankfulness that I feel for my clients that have trusted me to capture and preserve their special moments in time.
Once I was asked if I see my world through the lens of a camera. It was as if this person had read my mind. I think in terms of how perfect lighting may be or how perfect two people sharing a quiet moment will bring such an intense feeling to capture it through my lens.
The history of Elsie J Photo:
I started my photography company in 2010 and searched long and hard for just the right name. After much deliberation, I decided on Taken with Love Photography. It was exactly how I felt about the images I was taking. Moving forward to 2014, and I had found two other photographers that had since taken my name, or a variation of it. It was frustrating, however, I am moving on to bigger and better things!
I thought considerably hard as to what I want my new name to be. How I want my images to be. The words that kept coming to mind were: journalistic, timeless, and real. The person that kept coming to my mind: My grandma Elsie. She is without a doubt one of the most classy, sweet, and wise women I know; and she is also a talented artist! With her blessing, Elsie J Photo was born.
I am located in Fort Myers, Florida- but have-and will- travel!
