Hello! My name is Izabel Saville.
But friends call me Izzy.
Storytelling has been an integral part of humanity since this world was spoken into existence. Narratives that speak to our human experience remind us of the perpetual unfolding moments that fill our lives. The moments that pass by in the flicker of an eyelid, the moments we often miss yet always wish we had more of, these are the moments I aim to document.
I stumbled into photography in 2011 when I was headed to India and Nepal on a long-term missions trip. To document my travels, my father lent me his point and shoot camera. The images I brought back with me represented a profound metamorphic period of my life that awakened in me a deep love for capturing and telling the story of others. The human life in all its glory, in all it's complexities, in all it’s variances, captivated me. Many of the faces I have captured since then I have ended up befriending. I truly am still amazed at the privilege and honor I have with every session to enter and share the intimacy of capturing someones life (can you tell I love my job?)
As a mother, wife, daughter, and friend I find my hands and my heart are often full. The shutter of my camera struggles to keep up with the ever quickening moments of life. I swipe moments before time does. When I’m not photographing super awesome people, I am thoroughly rocking the messy bun and casual-athletic-even-though-I’m-not-really-working-out “mom” look. My ideal date night is a good beer and some board games. My husband and I love to travel and are always dreaming of our next adventure. I thoroughly believe it’s the people you have in your life - not the stuff you have - that make life worth wild. I’m always itching for a new story. Say hello, call me Izzy, let me tell your story.
