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. 

I give you a photography experience with your family that turns your ordinary moments into magical artwork that you'll hang on your walls for years to come. 

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

Why I'm passionate about

"Take the pictures with Ellen! The end product will be beautiful, and the shoot itself will be fun, quick, and painless, even with reluctant toddlers." 

"We felt totally relaxed and comfortable during our session"

- Lindsey 

"I loved that you had props on deck for the family to play with. [Ellen] can get all the pictures even if you have a zoo with you! Trust the process because it is worth it in the end to   have all the memories!"

"I loved your calm, go-with-the-flow vibe."
