Elisabeth Nixon Photography bio picture

  • I'm Elisabeth and I'm so glad you're here. Take a peek around, I can't wait for you to see the beautiful families I'm blessed to photograph.

Fresh Start … with kittens

It’s been SO long since I’ve blogged that it just doesn’t even seem worth starting again. Life is completely different for us this year and the reality is that I’ve got even LESS time for photography and blogging than ever before. BUT…I honestly enjoy the outlet for creativity too much to let it go completely. So in between driving ¬†across the lake 2 times a day for the older kids’ school and homeschooling full-time I’m going to attempt to take pictures of us, right now, as we are….and occasionally I’ll have a chance to share them I’m sure.:)

In the meantime I’m still available for sessions as I’m able to fit them in among “regular life”…but I do find myself with more family obligations piling up and less time for the creative stuff. Fortunately it’s not too hard to combine them:)

With that, let me introduce to you the newest members of our “family”….Stella and Hobbes. (Stella just slept through these, Hobbes was far more interested in posing for me.):)

Stella & Hobbes

Garrett ~ 1 Week Old {Central FL Newborn Photographer}

Little Garrett recently joined his family and I was ridiculously excited as his mama got closer and closer to her due date. Excited for them, of course – but also excited to get to meet Garrett and spend a little bit of time with his family again.:)He has two absolutely adorable “big” brothers and they made for a fun morning. You’ll see what I mean as you scroll through the pictures. I love how looking back at Garrett’s brothers’ baby pictures, you can see how they are all definitely RELATED – definitely brothers – but they are each different combinations of their parents. It’s so cool! I love scrutinizing the munchkins that I photograph to see what features and even facial expressions they get that come from each parent.:)

I am absolutely in love with these pictures of the brothers together.:)“Big Brother” inspecting Garret and “Biggest Brother” just chilling with his new baby.

And then THIS happened. Awesome.

Ramos {Central FL Family Photographer}

The Gomez family…I’ve been photographing this sweet family since their oldest was quite little. He was the cutest little boy with such big brown eyes – and now he is a handsome young man with a little brother equally as adorable. Big brother is happy to sit and talk Legos with me (but not Star Wars) and little brother, well he didn’t stay in one place long enough for a conversation…so we chased him around played “tag” the whole time! Oh the fun of toddler-hood! It’s an excellent way to stay in shape AND makes life much more interesting.

Eylin and Angel – you guys are doing a wonderful job with these two little boys! They were a joy to spend my morning with and I appreciated the work-out.:)I hope you love looking back at this stage in their lives!

L + R = Elijah {Maternity}

Babies will probably always remain my favorite thing to photograph. I’ll be honest – it’s not because it’s ACTUALLY my favorite thing to photograph – but it’s because I LOVE BABIES. I love them. I love their tiny little noses and ears, I love their sweet eyelashes, I love their facial expressions and the little (and loud) noises they make. I love that I get to hold them and snuggle them and sniff them and calm them and THEN I get to pose them and photograph them. I love it all. I love that my clients trust me enough to allow me to be in their homes so soon after their tiny babies are born – and then they allow me to love on their little ones for a short time as I photograph them. Seriously, what’s not to love about babies and photographing them? Did I mention I love babies? I wasn’t sure if it was clear.

This next client hasn’t YET had her baby, but that’s what makes maternity sessions SO MUCH FUN to me – the anticipation! I MAY be a little too excited about these babies that are about to be born…but I’ll not speculate on that now.

I grew up with Roxanne and was thrilled when she and her husband asked me to do their maternity session – 1) because YAY they are having a baby, I’m so happy for them! and 2) because THEY ARE HAVING A BABY and I just might get to spend a little bit of time with him! (And the parents, of course…)

Spending a little bit of time with each of the couples who are expecting allows me a little peek into their excitement, their hopes and dreams for their child – and I am often brought right back to my own pregnancies.:)Well, enough talking. Please enjoy Roxanne and Luke’s maternity pictures – hopefully you can catch a little bit of ¬†the love they have for this little man who hasn’t even arrived yet!

Lauren {Central FL Newborn Photographer}

Sweet Lauren joined her family recently…Mom + Dad + big brother were SO excited to have her finally in their arms! She came pre-packaged with the perfect amount of chub on her cheeks and OH those lips and that little nose.:)Aren’t tiny new babies the best?

Clearly I am very behind in blogging…but these families are all way too cute to never share with the public so…here they come:)
