About the Photographer
My name is Julie Elizabeth Scarpace. I am the owner and photographer for Elizabeth Ann Photography. I started this business in the fall of 2002, however my love for photography goes back even further than that. I am a very visual person and have always enjoyed studying images in photography books and magazines. The emotion that a single image can evoke is wonderful!
When my first daughter was born, I didn't want to take her to a confined photo studio with fake backgrounds and perfect poses. I wanted to get outdoors with her where we were most relaxed and the lighting was beautiful. I wanted to remember her smile, those tiny fingers and her chubby legs & feet by capturing all of those details with my camera. I took classes, read books and articles, and shot lots of film. At that time, I was not only a new mommy, but also a first grade teacher. After my first daughter was born, a parent of one of my students saw pictures I had taken of her displayed on my desk, and she wanted to hire me to take pictures of her children. And so the new journey began. That mother passed my name on to more families and friends and soon I was turning people away because I didn't have the time to teach full-time, do photography part-time and also be a new mother. Although I enjoyed my teaching career, I was grateful for the rapid growth of my business. After much thought and prayer, in 2004 I resigned from my teaching position. Since then, I have been blessed to stay home with my two daughters while I pursue my passion of photography. Hence, the birth of Elizabeth Ann Photography. My business is named after the middle names of myself & each of my daughters...Elizabeth and Ann.
I love capturing images of people of all ages and what’s even more exciting is sharing those images with my clients. I take mostly outdoor pictures because it makes for a beautiful and natural setting which allows you and your family to feel more comfortable and relaxed. My goal is to capture the spirit and personality of those special to you, which will result in beautiful memories captured in the images you will treasure.
I specialize in outdoor photography for high school seniors, babies and children of all ages, and families. My area of Commercial Photography is also growing. I am located in O'Fallon, MO but service St. Charles and St. Louis areas and can be available to travel as well.
