About Francescon Portraiture



Photograph in its simplest terms is writing with light.  The light transforms into a pen, and the subject becomes a story which will be told.

As a portrait artist, I seek to reveal relationships and emotions.  As I use the lens to interact with the subject before me, so begins the exploration with light that truly determines the final story.  The light unveils a story through the texture and shape of a flower; by sculpting the lines of a dancer or by reflecting the joy and life in the eyes of a puppy.

Everyone and everything has a story.  Invite Francescon Portraiture to tell yours.


Artist Bio

Lisa opened her photography business in Moline, IL in the Fall of 2004. Her primary focus includes photographing family pets, service and therapy dogs. Lisa also partners with several pet related businesses in the Quad cities to provide various events throughout the year.

In her studio, she creates a warm and loving environment for your pet and partners with you to create heirlooms that you will treasure in the years to come.

Lisa holds a Master’s Degree in Education from Western Illinois University and taught in the public school for ten 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 lots of individual attention.

She is a Certified Professional Photographer and will receive her Master’s in Photography and Craftsman degree through the Professional Photographers of America in January 2017.

Lisa is a member of the Associated Professional Photographers of Illinois (APPI) and a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA).
