My real, big girl website! I know I talked about it earlier, but it is now complete with contact section, and flash. Oooooo, flash...so pretty. Please visit it at www.elyfairphotos.com! I'm still working out some kinks, and have no music because I want to be legit and not just use music I'm no licenced to use, but haven't been able to find stock music that isn't ultra cheesy. So if anyone knows any great local artists that might let me use a song or two of theirs on my website, I would give them a shout out, or link on my site!!
So, yep, that was the big announcement. Sorry to disappoint all of you who though that there was a baby fair on the way. No, no little alien being growing in my tummy.


  1. I can't believe you're from Oklahoma! I'm from around Ada. I found your photo site on bludomain. I'm looking for a template and I looked at yours first.

  2. haha, yep, I'm here in the OK :) Did you find a template you liked?? Where did you find it on bludomain, I didn't know it was there? :)

  3. Hey Elise! It's stephanie (hersley) george, Kristine's friend from High School. She told me you had started your own photography website and then after looking at it, I ventured to your blog. You are doing some great work girl! In fact, I'm a bit envious. I'd love to start a small photography business, but I honestly don't have the photo skills yet. Did you take some photography classes in college when you were doing graphic design, or is your work self-taught? I'll be keeping up with your blog. I'm sooo excited for you! Lots of luck (and happiness and wealth in your business in the future!)

  4. Hi Stephanie, great to hear from you! I'm a little bit of class, and a little bit of self taught. In high school, I took film photography classes that helped me to learn composition and the basics of shutter speed and aperture, but when everything switched to digital, I was really intimidated, so I kind of quit photography for a while. Two years ago, I finally decided I was going to have to learn, so I bought a camera, and read the manual, and that taught me about how to use the digital settings, and then I enrolled in an online class taught by Sheye Rosemeyer called eye candy.She's actually doing another class in October, here's the link: http://www.eyecandyactions.com/index2.php?v=v1#/info3/ I found it really helpful, and gave me the push of confidence that I needed to start doing photography as a business.

    Whew, that was quite a long reply, but I hope it helps! Keep in touch, I want to hear what you are up to, and how this all progresses for you! xoxoely
