I'm Elizabeth Dillow.
I can't remember a time in my life where I didn't have access to a camera or art supplies, and I have my parents to thank for that. They never treated cameras or reams of blank paper as too precious to use, but rather as a regular—and essential—part of life's toolbox. I've been making things my whole life.
I live by three creative principles:
1. Design matters.
2. Photographs tell stories.
3. It's worth it to craft the right words.
I manage the majority of client projects individually and take great pride in providing excellent service each step of the way from initial discovery to final product. For large-scale projects with more moving pieces, I collaborate with a trusted network of like-minded creative professionals. I approach my work with a great deal of thought, research, and authenticity; whether I'm working on a branding project for a nonprofit organization or your family's photographs, I never rely on a one-size-fits-all approach. It's important to me to get it right, because who wants to spend their time doing work they aren't proud of? I want you to be proud of the results, too.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
On her website, Elizabeth says:
"I believe everyone (and every organization) deserves to have their stories told well: that means great design, meaningful photography, and well-crafted words. Sometimes, all three at once."
Elizabeth delivered the design, photos, and words for my author website masterfully. But what really made the difference for me was how she did it: with great enthusiasm and humor, and with rapt attention to my vision. She absolutely puts the client first. I also admire how she keeps learning and researching new things as she works. That must be how she stays on top of the ever-changing realm of design.
Elizabeth helped me put the story I wanted to tell into a website that I can be proud of, in a way that feels authentic to me.

Pilot brand. Is there any other kind worth writing with? (The answer is no, no there is not.)
MOUNTAINS OR OCEAN?
I love the ocean, but if forced to pick one or the other for the rest of my life, mountains win, hands down.
Yes please. The prettier the better. I intend to keep the U.S. Postal Service in business as long as I can.
I spread my love of the printed-on-paper-word around between multiple favorite bookstores and the Laramie County Library.
