What started out as a hobby in high school has turned into a passion for Elisha Huizenga, owner of Seesha Photography, in Fort Payne.
Her business name is a result of her niece and nephew calling her ‘Seesha’ instead of Elisha. The name stuck, and so did her love for photography. In fact, Elisha recently opened a studio at 909 Gault Ave. N. and is turning her passion into a career.
While photo shoots can be stressful for parents, Elisha tries to make every shoot a fun experience.
To Elisha, taking photos links her with families. She has taken photos of children and, years later, their wedding photos. She truly feels like she is part of their family.
Some of the types of photo shoots Elisha offers are: newborn, wedding, children, Dudeoir, Boudoir, banquets and really any event or individual shoot you can imagine.
Her favorite shoots are, by far, boudoir shoots. It brings a smile to Elisha’s face to see women who have experienced sad times and are perhaps down on themselves view their photos for the first time—truly rewarding. Elisha expresses concern about women tearing each other down instead of building each other up. Boudoir shoots, she feels, is a way to show women just how beautiful they really are. Boudoir isn’t your typical shoot that everyone likes to talk about, clothing is worn, and Elisha ensures the shots taken are classy and appropriate.
Who is ready to talk newborn? Well, after a Boudoir shoot, it could happen. Newborn shoots are precious, and Elisha has an eye for capturing those most precious moments to last a lifetime. She can be with you during your delivery and/or available for those first newborn moments. Let’s not forget special family shoots and weddings. Your imagination is the limit for the moments Elisha can capture through photography.
