Hi, I am Elizabeth Dekker.
I am a photographer from Northwest Iowa. I have lived in the area my entire life and currently live just outside of Estherville (about 20 miles from the Iowa Great Lakes). I also have a studio in Estherville!! I have been a photographer for 9 years, but have only been full time for the past 6 years.
I have a passion for freezing sentimental moments in time. I love birth and fresh 48 photography because of the emotions you feel when you look back on those moments that you may not remember. A few years ago, I lost one of my favorite people, my grandma. She passed away at the age of 90. I am so thankful I spent a lot of time photographing my grandparents with their children, grand children and great grand children. I see the importance of saving those family memories in photos. Any chance you have to capture the love between family members is so special!
I have won awards such as the SRG People's Choice Best Photographer for 2019, and 2020. I was runner up in 2021.
“Lizz made the session seem effortless, even with our hot-and-cold toddler. She had infinite ideas to keep her amused, but also to actually get amazing pictures!! My daughter, who is quite slow to warm up, trusted her and interacted with her pretty quickly!! And after all of these, we got AMAZING, breathtaking image”
