Hope and Memory Photography bio picture
  • I help clients capture their child’s personality. Oh, and I’m really good at acting (I used to be a performer in a former life), terrific at eating dessert (my fat jeans would definitely agree), and my Russian accent is stellar (Russians have confused me for an actual Russian until I give them a blank face when my Russian vocabulary runs out). Clients love my creative whimsical photos and are always commenting on how I’ve captured them in such a unique and beautiful way. Personally, I think my ability to return emails faster than Superman’s flight speed is pretty impressive. My Momma thinks I’m determined and that I have great hair and beautiful eyes. My friends envy my ability to balance everything on my overly full plate (they should be envying my husband because I certainly couldn’t do it without him). My clients love that I effectively capture their family and bottle moments in time for them to savor for years to come; I help them hold on to their memories.

Pin It to Win It 2014 | WINNER!

Follow Jill Zelizer’s board Pin It to Win It 2014 – Hope and Memory Photography on Pinterest.

I am a huge Wes Anderson fan.  When I need inspiration, his movies are one of my go-to remedies.  I love his unique and whimsical style, the worlds he creates, and the fact that every single frame of his films could stand on its own as a stunning photograph.  Moonrise Kingdom is one of my favorites.  While I love all the entries and would love to do any one of these sessions, it’s no wonder that this Pinterest board won my heart!
