Elsie Jo Photography Blog

I love late nights, belly laughs, love stories, the smell of fresh cut grass, and the kind of dream clients that want to invest in capturing life as it is. A little messy and full of color. If you're into photos that are authentic, full of snuggles, and sunshine, keep scrolling, I can't wait to meet you.

A new blog post…who am I?!! It felt so good to get out and shoot again this week. I am excited to be sharing a little sneak peek from the Fogles family session. How sweet are they?! I can not get enough of these little toothy grins!

One of the best parts of my job is the honor of getting to capture clients, and their families, as they grow! This sweet, farming family has been with me since the very beginning. The Aberles have been faithful clients since miss Ava Jean was a teeny tiny baby! Every shoot with them is an adventure. And […]

This family is so near and dear to my heart. It has been such a pleasure capturing them over the years, as they grow! We spent an evening together laughing and chasing a pile of little ones through a grassy field. The images come out perfect and are totally worth the box of fruit snack […]

Today I am missing warm, sunny walks through the woods with this sweet family! All these photos are totally worth getting poison oak right before my wedding, right Dani? Memories!!

Let me start by apologizing for the lengthy silence here on the blog. This fall has been especially busy, in a good way. I’ve have gotten chances to capture some of the sweetest people, families, and couples. But, in trying to keep up with all the hustle and bustle here at the studio I have […]

I can’t believe these little girlies are already 18 months old. Where has this last year and a half gone? As they grow and change capturing them just becomes more and more of treat. Their little personalities are so present in these images and I can’t get enough of them. We spent the afternoon at […]

Christmas cards are out and I finally get to share pictures from one of my favorite shoots this fall! The Rollins family holds a special place in my heart. They are basically a second family to me, which made this shoot nothing if not natural. Anyone who knows the them, knows that they like to […]

I had the pleasure of spending an evening last week with the Baker siblings. It was so fun to share Daniel’s senior shoot with his little sister Adele. I had so much fun between the pretty dresses, the fun cowboy boots, the perfect fall evening, the guns, and a pickup truck this shoot had a […]

I loved spending another evening with this sweet, and might I add sharp dressed, family! To capture little Wyatt’s one year pictures! The evening was filled with lots of laughs! Mostly around the time of cake smash pictures. Little Wyatt really took his duty of destroying the cake, his mom had made for him, VERY […]

I had the awesome opportunity to capture the Kaiser Weekend for the second year in a row! And this year lived up to last with bounce houses, snow cone machines, bags tournament, a tight rope, and of course the Amazing Race. It was so fun to see how this family has grown and to get […]
