One Night Stand

Dear beloved Camera... This was a one time thing.
I swear that Canon didn't mean a thing to me.
Sure that Canon has produced some Amazing images for Lisa Predko
And the weight of it in my hand was almost perfect

Really it meant nothing to me, we shared a moment but I'm sticking with you

Dress them up and take them places

This is starting to look like a trend, I swear I photograph more than my boys.
It's just that right now they are the people I love to photograph the most.

And in return I think they liked to be photographed by me.

It's the little things

It's been a very busy life for me. Between photographing weddings for
I've been photographing chefs, food, guitars and just plain photographing.
While it all makes me happy. I love what I do.
This makes me the happiest of them all!

What is better that a 7 year old with a lost tooth.
When I have more than 3 minutes I promise I will do a best of my season.

Wilds or Wildes Part 2

Once More...
Finally Spencer and I reached an agreement and he gave it his all.
What was the agreement? Bribery, plain and simple.
The tail is an important thing to a 7 year old.

Malea in the cabin. I photographed her while cooking with my cousin.
My fancy comes in many forms.

Wilds or Wildes Day 1

Vacation does not mean I don't take pictures.
Lots and lots of pictures.

This first set is where I discovered Spencer and I were going to be in contract negotiations about his image and the rights to them for the majority of the trip.
Gibson hasn't hired an agent yet.
Sleeping Bear Dunes.... 450 foot drop? Why, yes you may take a flying leap.

I really didn't have any problem finding willing subjects.
Malea is my cousin's daughter. So cute it's kind of painful.
Island View Resort Is where we stayed.
It was a perfect place to stay and a hard place to leave.

Will ESissonphoto ever get her oldest to willingly let her take his picture?
Stay tuned and find out.
Part 2 coming soon!

It's the style that gets me.

The Friday before the 4th I had the pleasure of working with my friend Gail
Our couple kept it loose and cool. A quick trip around Michigan Ave
Then off to the ceremony and reception at
Rock Bottom Brewery

Snow Days in March

One cold and snowy Chicago day I was lucky enough to be nowhere near that crap.
Instead I found myself in Santa Monica with an awesome family and SUNSHINE!!!
Those two things together, how could I not have an awesome time?

Thanks again Richard and Jaci.
I hope we can to this again sometime SOON!

Ok, so I got carried away with the images.
I couldn't just choose one.

Love the love

Holy Cow! I've gotten a tad bit busy lately and so I haven't been around much. 
Hello, wedding season. In honor of the season I'm posting two images from weddings that I shot last summer.
I have been seen blogging here and there at.... Orange2photo
and of course over at Gerber + Scarpelli weddings
Last but not least.... Vintage Glam Blog 
did me the great honor of featuring one of my O2 weddings on her site!
Thanks for that Amanda! Her site is one of my favorites so I was reallly excited to see my work there.
I've now given you people plenty to look at. What are you waiting for? GO! Look! See!

Secret Lives

I discovered Steve Carlson a couple of years back... Saw him and went.... "Yeah, Lizz not so much with your taste." Then the boy and his guitar played a couple of songs. There was something there. I suddenly realized there is more out there then what I was listening to.
He's opened my ears to new things. I thank him for that.
One day I'm hoping Steve let's me take his picture somewhere other than on that particular stage. A beach maybe? The open road? Somewhere other than the box we always seem to meet in.

At 5:07pm on 5/7/98

Spencer Owen Sisson Was born!

Plus one

Tall and Skinny
My favorite picture of him.

Here I go again.
I really have to take the time to tell Spencer how great he is. He's got a mind of his own which is filled with stories and humor and love.
I had Spencer and my life changed, in many MANY ways it was for the better.

Happy Birthday Bubba!!!!

Clowns WILL eat you.

A while back I happened to find myself as an extra on a TV show.
The theme was killer clowns. You think I joke.

It's good luck!

Rain on your wedding day!
Renee and Andrew didn't let the rain get them down and celebrated with a dip in the lake!
Unprompted of course.
Thank you both for a great day!

I've never been known for my good timing.

Does anyone else find random plastic pigs hanging out on their stovetop on a Saturday morning? 
Just me then? O.K.

It was 7 years ago today...

I had the second of my two boys.
I love that face he makes.
Out of my two sons, Gib is the most patient with all of this.
Plus one!
This is where I say...  I am a lucky person. I have two wonderful sons, who make me smile and laugh. (Yes sometimes I would like to strangle them with my bare hands that doesn't mean I don't think they are awesome.)  They have made me the person I am today.
If I can raise two boys, I can do anything.
