Auburn, Alabama
Motherhood & Family

I am passionate about creating a fun, relaxed photography experience that the whole family will enjoy. Like, the kids will literally ask "when do we get to take pictures again?"

I can't wait to show you how magical your family moments are. The beauty in the chaos of your everyday life with little ones. The sweet, snuggly moments in the midst of mayhem. The unique dynamic that makes your family one-of-a-kind. 

The life you've built is so special, and I'm here to make sure you remember it.  

Hey, I'm Ellen.

"Ellen is a breath of fresh air for family photos. From the moment she walked in, I immediately felt comfortable and at ease with her, like I had known her forever."
