As the aroma of brewing dark roasted coffee beans wakes me, I get excited about my favorite part of the day – morning with coffee and Jesus! I crawl out of the beam of sunlight that kept me warm in my bed, shuffle my feet to the airy kitchen and make my cup with just a little cream and sugar. I step out into the sun on the sandy patio of my vacation rental on a peaceful little corner of the island. I sit still with God while watching the pelicans cruise above the morning surf – thanking Him for the gift of yet another glorious day! The quiet moment is interrupted by the rumbling sound of laughter from my 3 wild children racing face-first into the shore break. The craziest of bedhead you’ve ever seen disappears in that instant. I grab my camera and begin obsessively documenting every playful splash. With gratitude and passion, my ultimate Saturday begins.
I am Liz – the founder and photographer of Elizabeth Joy Creative in Virginia Beach, VA.
Relentlessly, I visualize. I am overflowing with the urge to create honest, soulful, artful portraiture that that “hits home” for you. My intention is to have you well informed of what is to be expected so that you and your children are able to release your inhibitions and be yourselves during our session. Leave it to my expertise to guide you and creatively capture perspectives and moments well. Your time with me is truly meant to be a unique, surprisingly enjoyable and a rewarding experience. I have sacrificed an immense amount of time and always invest all of my heart into making sure that I can properly conduct a session and technically produce quality, artful images of children. I will never settle for less than teaming up with the best professional print labs in the industry to evolve my portraits into home décor and heirloom sentiments for those who appreciate fine quality and my artistic vision.
Elizabeth Joy Creative offers a boutique experience and specializes in natural light, on-location, lifestyle children’s and family portraiture evolved into fine art photo goods and home decor; serving Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Norfolk.
