I am an Atlanta based fashion, event, and portrait photographer.
My photography ideology is big on promoting someone’s brand or idea and rolling with their vibes. Furthermore, it’s super important to me to not make my art not just about myself personally or making money. I also wholeheartedly believe that if you are true to your heart, you will never be truly hungry.
At university, I studied Mass Media and Chinese culture and language. I learned a lot of technical knowledge there, but over that, I’d say being a global person is a huge part of who I am. I would consider myself a citizen of the world before a citizen of the USA.
My hometown is a very rural town in Southwest Georgia, so being able to travel has opened my eyes to many things I didn’t have opportunities to experience before. I have been to numerous countries in Europe and Asia. I had an internship at a film company in Shanghai. I attended the Cannes Film Festival in France as a study abroad program through university. I also took a year off between college and worked life to teach English to children for a year in a rural town in China.
I feel that my main goal with my photography is to empower and heal others through my art, whether that be simply making someone feel beautiful or conveying a powerful concept.

Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos? (12 more interview questions).
Our readers would love to get to know you more Elizabeth. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I am someone who fights through obstacles in life to survive by any means necessary. That may sound a little intense, but that’s pretty much at my core.
Elizabeth, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
I am extremely passionate about other cultures besides my own. I also speak conversational Mandarin, and I have spent a lot of time in China. I also absolutely adore music and attending live shows. This one is generic, but I am so passionate about traveling anywhere.
I got into photography in 2006 when my Dad bought me my first DSLR. The rest is history.
Who is your inspiration in life Elizabeth? How do you keep inspired?
When I’m feeling really low, and in a creative block, I first and foremost listen to music. Sometimes I write my thoughts, read or watch a film. I am inspired by some of the great artists of this time as well. Another thing that inspires me is space, as weird as it sounds. Thinking of how vast the universe is, is something incredibly fascinating, how can someone not be inspired by that?
We all make mistakes Elizabeth; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Oh, I’ve made more than one mistake. My biggest mistake or even weakness is feeling self-conscious when a model if self-conscious. I resonate with peoples’ emotions because I have a lot of empathy for other people.
Elizabeth , when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I have a system that I use with three folders in where I put files in to easily access everything. I don’t overpromise clients anything either. I am realistic on when I can get something done, and I make sure not to get too backed up with clients. I like to take my time on each person, it’s their photos, and it’s important. Every single time.
Please tell us Elizabeth, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
It’s sometimes really difficult to manage hundreds of files from weddings, event, portraits, fashion, etc.… I have started to coordinate my time between different genres appropriately, so I have time to complete projects in a timely and efficient fashion.
Elizabeth, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I don’t think it’s necessary to necessarily ‘persuade’ someone to see things my way in photography. I did have had some difficult clients regarding retouching work in the past, so I had to politely explain to them that the level of work they were expecting was not realistic.
Elizabeth, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
One of my proudest moments was being able to photograph “The Used” and “Sum 41” which are two of my favourite artists. It was exhilarating to be able to take part in documenting something that only happens once like that.
Elizabeth, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Well, I started doing these colored bath bombs in my garden tub with models. I realized that being creative with color is a huge inspiration for me. It was difficult in that I wasn’t sure what I wanted to convey by using so much color and water. On another token, it was empowering for both myself and the models. People love to feel ethereal in that way.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Always realize there is room for growth and don’t you dare give up.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Absolutely! I’m looking for any collaboration that can be beneficial for likeminded artists to grow together.
Now for the best part Elizabeth! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
