My Name is Elizabeth Marie Grandt; owner of Elizabeth Marie Photography.
I grew up in Berea, Ohio where I do the majority of my outdoor sessions.
I grew up with thirteen siblings. Yeah, you read that right. I have one twin sister and twelve brothers. I've had years of experience with taking care of young children, to say the least. Perhaps this is how caring for newborns and children became so natural to me.
I started my photography journey when I birthed my youngest of three children. The feeling I had after doing my first session was incredible. I couldn't wait to do it again!
I learned the importance of photographs years ago when a photo album, along with the negatives of the photographs had been misplaced by mistake.
I just showed my age by saying that, I know.
This was an eye-opening experience for me to say the least. I realized that I would never be able to see those images again, and I have been able to see the value that photographs truly possess ever since. My goal at that point was to capture every moment that I could!
I can still remember my children taking their first steps and saying their first words. In the blink of an eye, my kids are now learning to drive, going to school dances, and becoming little adults. I cherish the photo memories of when they were years younger, and what they allow me to do today. (Stinkers!)
One thing that pulls at my heart is when a mother approaches me with tears of joy, telling me how emotional she became when she saw the memories that we had captured together. It takes the meaning of my profession to a whole new level. I feel honored helping someone cherish those memories. These emotions are what makes my work special!
My goal in the near future is to expand to a team base. I plan to take many new ventures and I'm excited to watch the ideas grow. As we just announced, Elizabeth Marie Photography has teamed up with an amazing designer, Danielle Sorensen! We are thrilled to be working together and we have been looking into expanding the locations to dreamy studio ideas.
2020 is going to outstanding.
I have been so honored to be nominated on the Cleveland Hot List and place as a finalist.
I have had the opportunity to shoot with amazing NFL players; Including Joe Thomas from the Cleveland Browns, Joe Haden, Richard Sherman, Travis Hafner, Nick Sorensen, Jason Trusnik, Reggie Hodges and many more.
My photography has been published in Fashion Kids Magazine.
My work has also been published in La Belle Kidz and Fashion Magazine
