From untold moments to shared looks, I consider it a privilege to tell your family's story through photography. Capturing the true essence of a family through a lens transcends generations as curated heirlooms. These moments are why I've never regretted leaving my dream career to pursue what seemed like just a possibility. 

Come along for the ride, there's always room for one more!

I'm an Ohio photographer, blogger, wife and mama with big ambitions. As a born & raised country girl, I believe in designing the life you want by working smarter, not harder. Most people know me for my kid wrangling, home remodel addiction and slight obsession with comfy clothes. I get to do life with my best friend & two precious girls call me mama.

I have served over 80 families in the past two years by sharing their story here through heart-filled moments that become family treasures. I also love to write about the nitty gritty of entrepreneurial life, the challenges of parenthood and figuring out how to prosper in this season of motherhood. 

I'm elizabeth burns and I like big mugs.


They are absolutely gorgeous and I'm so happy you were able to take our photos! 

absolutely gorgeous

I absolutely love the pictures you took! One of the things I asked was to capture JOY in our family and you did! I loved the whole experience with you!

The turn around time was phenomenal! The quality was extraordinary. I still can't believe that those beautiful shots were captured even though it seemed the kids were being crazy!

She thought of everything & guided us into what we should do to be prepared. Her style & approach is exactly what we wanted to capture our baby and family beautifully.

Oh my gosh!!! You are amazing!!! You still somehow got really amazing pictures with a cranky baby!!

Elizabeth is so talented and amazing to work with. She captured our girls so beautifully. It is hard to imagine having anyone else take pictures of our family for years to come.

We had a great time. My husband said it was the easiest, most pleasant family photo session we've ever had!

Elizabeth is incredible! She was able to draw out my two shy little girls and get true smiles without meltdowns. 


She has an amazing eye and her editing style is beautiful while not overdone. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this lady! Pretty sure her photos do all the talking.

She had everything all planned out perfectly! We were amazed. Her communication for every step of the process was wonderful. She emailed me with everything we needed!
