Studio Elizabeth Photography
Photographer Elizabeth Monge has yet to meet the portrait subject from whom she can’t coax a relaxed, natural smile. Monge's friendly, jokey demeanor has a lot to do with it. So does her laid-back, unhurried approach to conducting a portrait session. She thinks of the first 15 minutes of any shoot as just a warm-up, a chance to let the subject start to feel comfortable in front of the camera. This sense of ease and comfort is key to Monge's work, which has a candid quality that captures each sitter's personality without stiff, forced posing.
In the 13 years since she graduated with a degree in photography from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Monge has developed a signature style rich with vibrant colors and a sense of whimsy. She feeds her passion for edgy photos and haute couture with a commercial career as a fashion photographer. In turn, her eye for editorial photography informs her portraiture, from the artistic composition of each frame to the inclusion of a Karl Lagerfeld cutout in every photo.
