Elizabeth Kraft started taking photos in 4-H as a kid. Her love for photography continued to evolve in college where she learned how to use a dark room to develop film. She got her first digital SLR camera used from a friend in 2008 and started transitioning over to the digital world.
Elizabeth and her husband moved around for a few years while he was finishing college and residency. They settled in Central California before moving back to put their roots down in Chippewa Falls, WI. The varied jobs over the years allowed her to practice photography with a hockey team in North Dakota while doing advertising/marketing; outdoor buildings while working remotely for a concrete plant; and of nature preserves while acting as a project manager for a land trust in California.
In 2011 the first of the Krafts’ three children was born. More time with little ones meant less time for nature photography and a chance to work more on portrait photography.
Now Elizabeth enjoys both nature and portrait photography and gets out to take pictures whenever she gets the chance. You can find more information about Elizabeth at https://lavendergreenphotography.pixieset.com/ or on Facebook at Lavender Green Photo.

I started Bob’s Burnings in 2019, mainly making hand made framed wood burnings featuring portraits, wildlife, pets and memorials. I then started making hand routered signs from live edge boards. Last year I started putting those skills into custom epoxy resin finished cribbage boards. This year I’m focusing on chainsaw carving and bringing all those elements into truly unique pieces. Custom orders are always welcome and encouraged!
