yes please

you don't have to do it all

Picture this. You're finally able to take that yoga class, try that new recipe, plan a weekend getaway—without your lap top. You have the time you need to commit to an evening routine, a morning routine, a workout routine. Or you finally have the time to dedicate to that business course or workshop you've invested in and haven't finished yet. 

ready for your 

life to change?

It may be time to consider working with a private editor

Here you are
going to state the challenges and frustrations 



Your'e a hustler and you wear all the hats. You have a to-do list a mile long and have trouble prioritizing all the demands on your time. 


You hate editing. It stresses you out, or you struggle with consistency, white balance, or greens and you want to elevate your work with professional editing. 


Your business has growing pains. You're overwhelmed, anxious, or burnt out with another wedding ahead.


You're a digital photographer who loves the look of film, but you just don't know how to achieve it in your own work. 

“You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it.”

You have got to own your days and live them, each one of them, every one of them, or else the years go by and none of them belong to you.


but guess what

I read all the business books, I took all the business courses, I struggled and I hustled. I had the passion, the drive, and the why. But working 80 hour weeks was't serving my clients, it wasn't serving my family, and it wasn't serving me. 

I realized that I wanted more out of my life and my work

That's when I chose to focus on the things I did best and loved the most. 

private editing services

I offer editing for film mentorships. and editing services with a consistent and reliable process, quick onboarding, fast turnaround times, and always free and convenient file transfers.



Here's What You'll Experience

step one


But on your own terms. We can coffee date over zoom, chat, or email. Just tell me about your struggles and your needs, and I'll share how I can help. We'll discuss your business goals, current editing process, and spend a little time getting to know each other better.

step two


Decide how much help you really need. Do you have an editing process that's tried and true, or feel it could use some improvement? Is culling something you prefer to do yourself, or would you like to just hand it all over to a trusted professional? We will work together to decide what solutions suit your business best. 

step three


I'll send you an easy questionnaire to get to know your style and editing process. Share with me everything you'd like to see in your work, from your hallmark style to your images' moods, tones and grain, and I'll create a unique client profile that delivers consistent, beautiful images your clients will absolutely love. 

step four


I pride myself on delivering extraordinary client experiences and a well defined process. My clients enjoy transparency, communication and ongoing collaboration so you feel confident in the quality of the work you create and deliver, giving you the freedom you need to focus on your family, your business and yourself.

How does this sound?

How It works


Complete an editing style questionnaire and review your Client Welcome Guide that tells you everything you need to know about working with me.

file exchange

For each shoot, edit a few anchor photos (1 to 2 for each lighting situation), submit a client order form and transfer your files for editing.


I process your images and check in periodically with samples to make sure you're satisfied with your edits. Once complete, I send your files back.

erika took her business next level:

“From the first contact I had with Elizabeth I could already tell her process was easy, efficient and professional.”


Ariel discovered something missing:

“I appreciate how much time she took to help me refine my style, and I'm beyond thrilled with the results.”


Yes, It Really is a game changer

Kellie tripled her monthly income

“Elizabeth was the solution my business needed and she's an absolute pleasure to work with.”

I was struggling to keep up with my business doing it all alone and delighted when Elizabeth said she could help. Without her, I would never have been able to start off 2022 with a process that has allowed me to triple my monthly income. 

gigi found more me time

“I love that I can hand over my photos and know they are in good hands.”

As a portrait photographer it is difficult to find someone with Elizabeth's ability to retouch photos with so much attention to detail. I used to lose up to thirty minutes alone on a single photo! Working with Elizabeth has given me the time I needed to focus on other areas of my business and myself. 

erika enjoyed a trip to paris

“After one day of working with Elizabeth I was already impressed.”

I cannot say enough good things about Elizabeth. I'm so glad I found her when I did. I was overwhelmed with home renovations, family and work. But, seriously, after just one day of working with Elizabeth I was impressed, she worked to understand my editing style and business goals, and I was able to hand over my projects with confidence before a trip to Paris with my husband. Then I was actually able to enjoy it. Best decision ever.

More clients. Less time editing means more time photographing. And more clients means more profit.

Client relationships. Take them to the next level with outfit consultations, client guides or more time face-to-face,

This "self-care" thing you keep hearing about. You've always wanted to try it.

Your family. Your friends. Your pets. Your Netflix. Whatever's been feeling neglected.

hey there

I'm elizabeth, your new

get-a-grip best friend.

I believe in doing well for yourself by doing well for others, I'm passionate about photography and the importance of living life to its fullest.

more about me 

This business solution is

one of a kind because...

professional editing must be done but not by you

I love it. You don't. And that's okay.

Your images speak for themselves. But having a private editor means working with someone who understands your style, and works as hard as you do to deliver beautiful galleries that your clients are going to absolutely rave about. 

Spend less time editing and more time shooting.

it elevates your work and it elevates your client experience 

Have you ever marveled at the delivery times of other photographers?

Imagine your clients' surprise and delight when their albums and galleries are delivered weeks rather than months after their session or event. That's a client experience that says "luxury".

Suddenly raising prices doesn't seem so out of reach. 

you know you can't buy time, except now you can

Every business owner feels it. Time is money. 

So what is your time really worth? Time to serve more clients, grow your business, market yourself? That's quantifiable. That's profit.

Time to spend with your family, time to reconnect with friends, time for yourself so you can show up as your best self? That's priceless.

Creating one very life-changing partnership.
