I'm Ellen, your photographer-friend slash cheerleader. 

I'm a big believer in community over competition.
I wouldn't have the knowledge that I have today without the kindness of others sharing what has worked in their business.

Here, I'll link some of my favorite resources, business management tools, and photographer education.

Some links are affiliate links, which means I receive a small commission or store credit for sharing with you. I value authenticity, and only share things I love! 

Hey there!

Favorite Resources

Develope Academy, In the Glow, &  The Glowup Library

Beautifully documenting parenthood, and particularly motherhood, is my passion. The team at TMA has a wealth of both free and paid  content for motherhood photographers looking to get started or level up their existing business. 

I have been using Refined Co editing tools for years.Marta has built a top notch community and editing suite for photographers looking for a film-inspired look.

I am *obsessed* with how down-to-earth and generous the team at Develope Academy is. Jenn and Charla are not only phenomenal photographers, but have a unique style of teaching that really makes things click for me!

 Their In The Glow Membership is well worth it! 

Highly Recommended
