I'm Ellen.
I like to embrace the chaos and show you the beauty in your ordinary moments. 

From sunrise to sunset, there are millions of moments that you pour your heart and soul into mothering your children. Your days feel chaotic, joyful, overwhelming, and imperfectly perfect, all at the same time.

As a busy mama to two young girls, I know how important it is to stop and cherish these fleeting moments of parenthood. I also know how HARD it can be to add another 'thing' to your to-do list.

Let me help you. 

I believe in creating family portraits that are filled with real-life moments.

Celebrating motherhood is the reason I picked up my camera again after years of not being creative. Not long after I began intentionally documenting my own motherhood journey, I knew I wanted to use my gifts to serve other mothers. Not just knew...I felt CALLED to serve other mothers in this way. 

You deserve a photographer that authentically and beautifully captures your most precious moments, making magic out of your ordinary moments - and I'm your gal. 

a few more things you should know: 

I'm totally biased, but I've got the best little family in the whole wide world. 

That's my husband Matt and my two angel girls, Abby and Maddy. Love them to pieces. I'll probably talk about them during your session, cause...well, you know how it is! 

This is my family.
They're the best. 

I'm not a good 'influencer', but I do like to keep it real and share things I love. Just another creative outlet for me, with the bonus of getting to work with some pretty cool brands!

I create content on a lifestyle blog. It's fun.
