J. Elizabeth Portraiture is a specialty portrait studio that uses hand detailed fine artistry to turn your family portraits into exquisite works of art. All portraits start with a photograph taken in-studio and is then rendered entirely as a painting in a digital format. Utilizing museum grade canvas, we handcraft your portrait into a multi-generational lasting heirloom. We provide your family with a superior experience that is unlike any other because this is more than just photography, it's fine art that you will treasure forever! 

Jodi Elizabeth Jacobs is the owner and photographer of J. Elizabeth Portraiture. She has an extensive background in film production and directing. Her love of photography is grounded in storytelling, which hails from her studies at the University of Southern California's intense producing and directing program. At USC Jodi learned the art of cinematography and storytelling, enabling her to combine the two, bringing your unique story to picture where photography is just the beginning. While she will pose you to appear natural, she has a knack for emphasizing candid moments. Jodi is also the in-house photographer for the distinguished Jonathan Club.

“Jodi photographed my family and I couldn't have been happier. My kids can be a handful and she was able to go with the flow which helped me to relax and enjoy the session. The end result was better than I could have expected. The photos truly captured my kids' personalities. I would highly recommend Jodi for family photos.”
