At Strong. Capable. Female., we strive to pour in to women through positivity, encouraging balanced lifestyle, & focusing on overall wellness for mind, body + spirit.
Elisabeth's 'Strong. Capable. Female.' journey began when she created a simple t-shirt through her photography business, little knowing the profound impact it would have. In 2019, while separated from her family for five long months due to military obligations, Elisabeth felt a powerful urge to reevaluate her life. During this challenging time, she discovered a deep passion for cultivating a positive mindset, achieving work-life balance, and embracing genuine self-love and self-care. These newfound passions continue to guide her path today.
Inspired by the transformations she witnessed in her own life, Elisabeth realized that many women around her yearned for similar changes. She saw a collective need for positivity and empowerment, and she was determined to be the beacon of light that women deserved.
Family forms the core of Elisabeth's world: three loving children, a husband who fills their home with laughter, a laid-back Saint Bernard, and a not-so-devoted cat. Her businesses were born from a dream to be fully present with her family, and she emphasizes the importance of work-life balance for both herself and her clients.
Elisabeth passionately pursues her two businesses. Through Elisabeth Ashliegh Photography, she captures the beauty of families and couples, freezing their most precious moments in time. With Oak & Ivy, she curates social media experiences, fostering genuine human connections in an increasingly digital world.
One of her greatest joys is traveling the world with her loved ones. Elisabeth's photography has taken her to distant corners of the globe, from the enchanting landscapes of Europe to the vibrant culture of Mexico. Alongside her husband, they've explored over 30 states and ventured through seven countries together, with plans for even more adventures in the coming year. Additionally, she dedicates special trips each summer to bond with her children and create lasting memories with friends.
Elisabeth's purpose is clear: she's on a mission to infuse light and positivity into the lives of the women she encounters, serving as a stepping stone towards the truly beautiful lives they both need and deserve. Her journey embodies the essence of being Strong, Capable, and Female, inspiring others to embrace their own strength and potential.
