Meet Lisa, Owner and Lead Photographer
(See her work through-out the Captured by the Lens website!)

Lisa is one of the owners and the lead photographer for Captured by the Lens Photography. Lisa lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia. She began taking photographs at the age of 4
and received her first manual-focus camera as a gift from her aunt at the age of 10. From that point on you couldn’t catch her without a camera in her hands.

Much of Lisa’s talent flows from a heart’s desire that God has placed within her to capture the moments and perspectives she observes through the camera. The experience she gained from the thousands of photographs she took over the years, her freelance photography, and her continued training and positions with several newspapers helped fine-tune the hobby she fell in love with as a child. The rest is history, as photography is now a passion and a full-time occupation for Lisa.

Although Lisa enjoys all types of photography, she especially loves to photograph people-- in all stages of life: engagements, weddings, pregnancies, children and families through the generations. A photo session with Lisa is usually held in a natural, outdoor setting that combines a mixture of posed, natural shots as well as those candid moments she loves to capture during each of her sessions.

Lisa loves seeing her clientsthrough the camera lens and capturing the true spirit of each person, a moment or an event so it can be preserved.

Lisa's goal is to reflect in her work (as well as in the work of any photographer who captures memoires with her) the love…laughter…life….beauty and individuality she sees when she is behind the camera, and to share that image with those around her. Lisa is inspired by the knowledge that God also desires for us to see ourselves through HIS eyes, rather through our own, so that we can recognize the beauty and wonder in what He has created. Her prayer over each client is that she will capture what God sees in each unique person she works with! What an amazing legacy to leave our families for generations to come.

Unfortunately people often look at having their pictures taken as a chore, an embarrassment or a posed ritual that doesn’t reflect the real person. Photographs of people should be ABOUT the person. With Lisa, all clients are at ease and enjoy their photo session.

Lisa believes that photographs should preserve, enhance, remind and enlighten people about this life we are living while here on earth. Capturing those moments is what Captured by the Lens Photography is all about. Isn't it time you had your special moments captured by the lens? www.capturedbythelens.com
