Photography by Betty Elaine Leave Schedule


This winter I will be taking maternity leave. My baby boy, Wilder, surprised us by arrived 7 weeks early. After spending some time in the NICU, we are now happily at home. As always, I think it’s best to over communicate and keep you in the loop! For those of you interested in my maternity leave plans here are some of the details.

Office hours starting end of November will be a bit unusual, so I will have an email auto-responder up but will still be responding to emails when I'm in the office. I am taking a complete break from photographing sessions and weddings from December to March.

If you would like me to photograph your wedding:

I am still booking and responding to 2017 inquires! So let’s chat! Email me at I will be checking my email inbox a few days a week, and I’d love to chat with you. I will not be taking leave from bookings. I will find a time to email and talk with you so we can get your wedding date on the books. I will be scheduling 2017 engagement and anniversary sessions as early as April, and 2017 elopements and weddings as early as May.

While I am joyfully spending time with my first baby, and taking off time to adjust to parenthood this winter, I am also so very excited for the 2017 wedding season.
