After my first daughter, Reese Elizabeth, was born, it seemed my camera was never far out of reach. I would spend hours capturing every angle of her precious face, teeny toes, yummy knees and little fingers. When my second daughter, Harper Grace, joined our family, what had always been a hobby for me turned into a passion I had to take pictures! I would get lost snapping moments that I knew would soon be just memories, many times taking hundreds (and hundreds!) of pictures a day. Soon, I was not only photographing my babes, but the little ones of friends and family...and word continued spread from there! It was time to make it official...and so, elizabeth grace photography was born!
For a few years, elizabeth grace photography was a side business to my "day job" as a Program Director for a multinational retailer of technology and entertainment products. As my family continued to grow (another precious daughter, Stella Mae, joined our family in January 2009) along with my little photography business (that was no longer quite so little!), I decided to take a hiatus from the corporate world and focus full-time on my two biggest passions: motherhood and photography! In October 2009, elizabeth grace photography outgrew my in-home studio in Carver, MN and moved to a new studio in Chaska, MN located within Audubon Center at the intersection of Audubon Road and Chaska Boulevard (1340 Crystal Lane, Chaska, MN 55318).
Products & Services
Gift size portraits (8x10, 5x7, 5x5, 4x6 or wallet prints) are the perfect size for your desk, a shelf and gift giving, of course! Note: if you plan to hang your portrait on the wall, a minimum size of 11x14 is recommended (if in doubt, go larger!) . Each portrait you order is individually edited with complimentary basic touch-ups completed to ensure glowing skin and bright eyes (if desired, advanced edits can be purchased) . At my professional lab, all portraits are given a fine linen finish and printed on high quality professional portrait paper. Your final printed order is personally reviewed to ensure perfection prior to being securely packaged and mailed to your home at no charge.
Wall portraits receive the same special attention as gift portraits. Additionally, wall portraits are presented with a sturdy matboard backing to provide long-term durability. Wall portraits range in size from 11x14 to 20x30.
Collages are perfect for anyone seeking a wonderful keepsake, wanting a creative gift. or for those individuals who can�t decide on just one image to display!

All text, fonts and colors on a collage can be customized so you have a unique piece of artwork for your home to be treasured for years to come!
Gallery Wrapped Canvases
The ultimate display in artistic portraiture, your cherished image is custom-printed to an individual canvas before being completely wrapped around a 1. 5 stretcher frame.
