Good day! I'm Ellen and I'm the proud mum of a 2 year old, based in Sassafras.
With 16 years experience in the photography industry, I've been trained in all areas of portraiture, including weddings, all events, newborns, family, maternity and fashion photography, and have won several AIPP awards.
Having trained with the multi-award winning wedding photographer Rocco Ancora for two years, I have obtained a wealth of knowledge in taking memorable wedding portraits and capturing the true essence and intimacy of such a special day. It may help that I am also a hopeless romantic.
I helped create and run the Edinburgh photography studio and worked as head photographer for leading photographic company Jessops in the UK, predominantly photographing families, couples, children and infants.

People tell me what they notice first about my work, is how bright and colourful it is, and how I'm great at sneakily getting 'that moment' without overly posing people. Since I was in primary school I've enjoyed making people laugh (my poor teachers!) so I like to do and say whatever I need to, to get those smiles.
Over the years I've collected a double garage full of props to use for unique one-off portraits and love customising my sessions to suit exactly what you want. I will always avoid the 'cookie cutter' style and try my best to bring all my creativity to the table for our portrait session.
I have a great knowledge of the Dandenong Ranges for photoshoot locations, and my packages start at $300.
I can offer printing, digital files, canvases, wooden prints and photo albums.
I love bright colours (I painted my house rainbow), op shops, waterfalls, bush walks and face-painting.
Looking forward to hearing from you! Ellen x
