Monkey&Mingo Monkey&Mingo specializes in fine art portrait photography
(9)

Born in 1985 in Norfolk, VA I grew up as a Navy brat and spent time all over the eastern coast of the United States and London, England. I also spent time in Stuttgart, Germany as a Navy wife. I have always loved taking pictures from the time I got my first camera in my hands for a school field trip, to my travels in Europe, to becoming a mother determined to capture every fleeting moment of my girl's childhood. I now live in Florence, Arizona with my husband and our 4 beautiful girls. One day I hope to open my own photography studio, and to teach!

Elizabeth is the award winning photographer and owner/operator of Ginger Snapped Studio which was started in 2013 after the birth of her second daughter, Lorelei. She found a passion for capturing natural moments in a meaningful and artistic way in an effort to showcase the story of life thru her 4 daughter's eyes. Elizabeth specializes in fine art children's portraiture and documentary style family photography. Her fine art style blends rich colors and a painterly style with a whimsical nature and a keen eye for composition that portrays emotion and story. Her family documentary style celebrates the life unposed which creates a fun and unique portrait experience that is interactive, emotive, and yields photographs that have a natural, effortless depth and reflection of the family being photographed. Elizabeth completed her certification in Photography thru Harvard University's Photography Science course on Alison Online in January of 2017 and is committed to always learning, practicing, and utilizing new techniques and skills. She has won several awards for her photography and been featured in a local gallery in Maricopa, Arizona and an International art exhibition for Story Telling in Germany.

"The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold
Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall"
~Nat King Cole

I bought Aure this outfit - hat included at Old Navy earlier this week thanks to some Super Cash rewards! Well - she hasn't taken the hat off, so I figured, since we had a very small short-lived break in the weather today we would take some pictures. She is SUCH a great model! She walked around with me for a solid 20 mins and really didn't want to be DONE taking pictures, but it was time to go make diner...

and yep... in case you are wondering... she's sleeping in the hat, because sometimes as a mom you have to pick your battles.

"in my daughter's eyes, I am a hero,
I am strong and wise, And I know no fear,
But the truth is plain to see, She was sent to rescue me,
I see who I want to be, In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes, Everyone is equal,
Darkness turns to light, And the world is at peace,
This miracle God gave to me, Gives me strength when I am weak,I find reason to believe, In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand around my finger,
How it puts a smile in my heart,
Everything becomes a little clearer,
I realize what life is all about,
It's hanging on when your heart is had enough,
It's giving more when you feel like giving up,
I've seen the light, It's in my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes, I can see the future,
A reflection of who I am and what will be,
And though she'll grow and someday leave,
Maybe raise a family, When I'm gone I hope you'll see,
How happy she made me, For I'll be there,
In my daughter's eyes

~Martina McBride

Spring is more than a season. It's a feeling. It's revival - life returning after a cold lengthy dismal slumber. It is beautiful - those first hints of warmth and sunshine sparkle gold thru the trees and create magic. From bare branches - blossoms, and from cabin fevered sorrow - smiles.

Does anything say spring better than bare piggy toes in the weeds?
