Well, hello there! I am Elena. If you are here it is likely because you have connected to my work, so thank you!
Photography has become as much a part of my life as the air I breathe. Family photography is my absolute passion. Capturing the raw connection present in every family has become my life's work. I will show you how insanely beautiful your family is. A session with me is laid back and fun. It is an opportunity for you to spend quality time together as a family.
I have educated thousands of photographers both online and in person. I love helping other photographers find depth and meaning in their work and business.
I am a major people person. I love getting to know new people and value all of the important relationships in my life.
I am fiercely loyal. I am the youngest of six kids and have the best parents on the planet. I was born and raised in New Mexico but moved to Seattle 18 years ago to attend Seattle University.
I have a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and am a registered nurse. Over the past ten years I have worked in both newborn intensive care and labor and delivery units, however I hung up my nurse hat about four years ago to puruse photography full time.
I have three amazing, creative, beautiful, children.
We live in Seattle and love everything about this beautiful city. We love hanging out in all the amazing neighborhoods here and are very active; we rock climb, run, ski, bike, hike, and love being outdoors. However we can veg out with the best of them, too. My kids are kick ass travelers and I enjoy taking them all around the world as often as I can!
I'm excited to meet you and your tribe!
