About Francescon Portraiture
Lisa has been capturing the relationships and personalities of families and children with her camera since 2004. Over the past three years, her focus has changed and her primary client now has fur, a tail and whiskers. Lisa spends her time creating portrait art of family pets, as well as service and therapy animals.
In her studio, she creates a warm and loving environment for pets and works with their owners to create heirlooms that will be treasured in the years to come.
Lisa holds a Master’s Degree in Education from Western Illinois University and taught in the public schools for many years. She continues to teach photography classes in her studio covering a wide range of topics. Her class sizes are small so she can offer her students a hands-on experience and individual attention.
Lisa is a Certified Professional Photographer and has been awarded the Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees through the Professional Photographers of America. She is a member of the American Society of Photographers, one of the most prestigious photographic associations in the world and an association that must be invited into through photographic achievement.
Among her many awards and accolades, Lisa has been recognized as one of the top 10 photographers in Illinois in both 2015 and 2016 from the Associated Professional Photographers of Illinois.
