Elizabeth Dillow is a professional photographer, author, scrapbooker, and blogger living in Louisiana, with her husband, three daughters, and 7-year-old Australian Kelpie rescue dog. She's had a camera in her hand since 1974—there is photographic proof, even though she was holding the camera upside down—and can't remember a time where she wasn't documenting family, friends, and daily life. She takes a camera with her everywhere—right side up these days, fortunately—secretly believing it to be just as important as any attached appendage.
Elizabeth is a frequent instructor at Big Picture Classes, the author of the print book The Scrapbooker's Almanac, and most recently the author of the eBook Meaningful Minis: How to make little scrapbook albums with lots of heart.
