You captured our family in the most perfect way! I can't wait to share all the beautiful images. You made it easy for us to show up as ourselves. Thank you for that.

OUR FOUNDER

For over 10 years, Fern Elise has honed her craft in portrait photography, with an emphasis on women, family and children. Jamaica-born and raised, she made her first mark as the official photographer for the Miss Universe Jamaica pageant. Fern now lives and works in the USA, with studios in New York City, Las Vegas and Jamaica.

My first love is outdoor portraits! I am most inspired by the capturing the beauty of our relationships with our loved ones and the natural world around us.

with love,

A DAY IN THE LIFE

CAPTURE ALL THE MOMENTS THAT MEAN THE MOST

 

THE PATIO PROCESS

Your portrait session is only one part of the Patio Portrait Experience. We take pride in guiding you at every step in your portrait journey to ensure that the path to creating your custom artwork brings as much joy as the images themselves.

CONSULTATION

Every Patio Portrait Experience begins with a virtual consultation with your portrait concierge. We will learn about you and your goals for your portrait session and guide you on wardrobe and styling options. 

SHOOT

On your shoot day, we will arrive early to familiarize ourselves with your home and your chosen shoot locations. Though your Patio Portrait session can be scheduled at any time of day, we particularly love shooting in the late afternoon for gorgeous sunset light.

PRINT

After your premiere and ordering appointment, your custom artwork will be delivered to your home. We generally have your wall art to you within 3-4 weeks after your portrait session.

 

Going to Jamaica was a dream for my husband and I. As we were celebrating our 20th anniversary of engagement with this trip, I thought this could be a great souvenir. We combined a memorable moment at Bob Marley's childhood home with beautiful pictures. Chapeau!
