In case you were wondering about who The Whimsy Tree is… well it’s me, Elicia… and my husband Nathan (not pictured – someone has to be behind the lens!)… We’re a Christian couple who live in North Judson, Indiana, but offer photography and graphic design services anywhere!

When I was little I had a “thinking tree”. It was a poplar in the backyard that I could always run to when I was upset, and more often, a place to play and daydream. Now, I have The Whimsy Tree – a place where all my daydreaming comes to fruition. I’ve claimed Psalm 1:3 as my business verse because I want to be productive with the gifts God has given me.

I have an education in graphic design, and art, but have also always had a love for photography. After 4 years working as a designer and retoucher for another photographer – I felt that I had learned enough to start my own business. I offer design services for my photography clients, business owners and other photographers. In addition to design and photography, I am a self taught seamstress. I currently enjoy making baby clothes in an effort to prepare for my 6 children (someday). My husband, who frequently assists me, also has an education in graphic design but is aspiring to become a cinematographer. You can learn more about what we offer, including pricing, by clicking the links for design, photography and handmade, above.

I want to offer something different in photography. I want the ethereally bathed images we help create to have a feeling of curiosity, whimsy, purity and enchantment. I am a childhood and family photographer. Childhood is in my opinion that absolute best period in life to photograph. My favorite images are one’s that are captured in a moment of play. I love creating whimsical places to play, where little one’s can explore and show their true personalities. I also love creating those timeless family portraits. My favorite location for sessions is in nature and are timed according to light. Most clients have me select a location because the’ve come to respect my eye for enchanting locations. Most of all, I want to tell a story, a story about you and your family.  I know that life is brief, and how important it can be to take the opportunity to capture a moment in time with your family. I promise you won’t regret it. You can contact me at to schedule your one of a kind session.
