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 meaningful and timeless.

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. 

a few more things you should know: 

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

This is my family. They're the best.

I create content on a lifestyle blog.

My offerings are structured around physical products instead of digital images. You don't need more digital files. You need to be able to hold your memories in your hands.
