A Blurb about me

Hello! My name is Eliza Jayne (hence the business name) and I am a lifestyle family and portrait photographer based in Madison, Wisconsin. Originally from Utah, I am a mountain girl through-and-through, but these lakes and all the green has had me quite smitten for the past 13 years. I followed my husband here 13 years ago to pursue his PhD and boom… 13 years, 4 kids and 1 dog later we are still here! As a family we enjoy playing games, playing sports, camping and having dance parties. As for me give me all the chill folk rock, play it nice and loud and then get me on a hike out in nature with my camera and I’m in my happy place.

During my 8 years as an oncology nurse, I learned to value relationships more deeply and to notice and appreciate the little in-between moments in life... these things have impacted how I work as a photographer. I LOVED my nursing career, it shaped me in so many meaningful ways, but now this is my dream, to photograph beautiful individuals and families and create beautiful and meaningful art with them. My right brain has officially taken over and I’m loving every minute of it.

As your photographer, I am committed to getting you and those you love as comfortable in front of the camera as possible to create beautiful art you will cherish forever. I promise to put all my energy (and I have a lot!) into making your experience wonderful. I specialize in exploring locations in a unique way, in working with kids who have no interest in sitting still, significant others who aren't fond of being photographed, and couples who think they are awkward in front of the camera ;). Together we can create beautiful art of the ones you love for your wall, holiday cards, social media, or any other place you plan on sharing your beautiful faces. I hope to photograph you soon!
