My name is Elizabeth and my passion is modeling and coordination. Once you really get to know me, you will find that grammar is another passion of mine! I joined Joyful Visions Photography in 2016 providing makeup services, model coordination, scheduling, and sales. Of course, I try to get my time in front of the camera whenever I can as a model!!
When I was 15 I wanted to get into modeling for many of the same reasons most 15 to 16 year olds would want – so everyone would notice me. So any and everyone would say, “Wow! You’re so beautiful!” So I could try on the most beautiful clothes and have my makeup and hair done perfectly and have everyone compliment me and make me feel great about myself. I tried it for a little while but it wasn’t long before I became a mother (at age 18) and my life quickly took a turn and modeling was put on the back burner. I’m so thankful that it was however, because now I view modeling as something totally different. Now I view modeling as an opportunity for me to embrace all of my insecurities and all of my flaws and take hold of them and remind myself that they are beautiful. I view modeling as an opportunity to teach young girls that regardless of how insecure they are, regardless of what size they are, regardless of what color their hair is, of what color their skin is – they are beautiful in their own unique, gorgeous way. At 29 years old I wanted to get into modeling because I wanted to be an influence for young girls around the world, starting here in my hometown; to show them that there is no one general standard for beauty. We are all beautiful and we can all be models. We all ARE models.
Elizabeth has a former background in the theater as well. When not working with Joyful Visions, Elizabeth enjoys time with her family, enjoys substitute teaching for local schools, and is involved in many other community volunteer opportunities.
