Johnson City, TN
Welcome! My name is Elissa and I have had a camera in my hand for the better part of the past 40 years. I took a leap of faith in 2006 and made a midlife career change to professional photographer. I eventually discovered my passion for styled beauty/editorial photography and boudoir in 2010 and that’s when the magic began to happen!
I love what I do. My goal when working with clients is to not only creative artistic portraits, but also create a transformation in how people see themselves. We all have our hang ups about our age, our size/shape, or some other aspect of ourselves we find imperfect. A lot of us hate how we look in photographs. I want to change that if I possibly can. Everyone should have at least one portrait of themselves they love.

The best part for me is Creating Memories That Last a Life Time
About Wounded Tree Photography
Everyone always asks where I got the name, Wounded Tree. It came from a poem I wrote that means a lot to me. When I was 11 my great grandmother passed away. I couldn’t understand why everyone was laughing and just hanging out at the house like nothing happened. So I ran into the woods and took comfort in an old tree. This poem tells the story of that day and the days of my life to come.
There was a tree that was meant for me, it stood tall and proud
It had a door that was old and worn and grown ups weren’t allowed
I went there everyday and let my thoughts begin to breathe
From the harshness of this world, this tree was my relief
One day I made the trek
down the path to my old friend
My tree had a wound that was impossible to mend
I had to move on and let my tree turn back to earth
I had to grow up and discover my own worth
Now when times get hard and life is crushing down on me
I just close my eyes and picture that old tree
I believe life is about learning and growing. Sometimes you need a little help to make it through and sometimes you learn and grow and push through on your own. That’s why creating memories and capturing them is so important to me and my clients. Because whether its a tree, or a photo printed on paper, you can hold onto those memories for a lifetime.
