Photography is so much more than images composed of lines, shape and color. It is a fleeting moment captured in time. A connection to the past. Meaningful, custom art that turns your house into a home.
Photographs are memories, nostalgia, and love captured forever. Growing up, I watched my grandfather use his camera to preserve our family’s favorite memories on film. He passed that passion on to my mother, who I would sit with late into the night as she meticulously labeled the back of every photo she took. She documented our lives. Which she would then gently place into an album, where they would be safe and secure for future generations to appreciate.
This family legacy was passed onto me and took shape in October of 2011 when I gave birth to the most beautiful baby girl (in my unbiased opinion.) Suri, my first child, brought back my instinct to document and share every important milestone. Then, my next model, Mayer, was born and I couldn’t seem to put the camera down for too long. That’s when I realized this was a gift worth sharing.
As a family portrait photographer serving the Cleveland and northeastern Ohio community, I offer portrait sessions with newborns, families, children and seniors. From the moment we start working together, my focus is on bringing your vision to life. It is my mission to create art for your family to cherish and share for years to come through custom albums, high-quality wall art and more.
Ellie is really talented. Not just in the art of photography, but in the art of making people feel comfortable and going with the flow. It’s important to note that this was our very first time taking a professional family photo and that we have more than one camera-shy, introverted personality type in our family. On top of all that, there were there about six additional kids running around underfoot. Somehow with all this Ellie was still able to get really beautiful and warmly evocative shots! You’re a queen, Ellie!
