She turned her can'ts into cans

I'm Elena.



oh hey there!

I photograph with my heart and not with eyes. 

I'm a Chicago based photographer who is notorious for making target runs at least three times a week & ordering Chinese food a minimum of two Friday's a month.  I'm a bookworm who will easily devour a whole book in a day if given the time.  I cherish family, love laughter, and dream about romance, but most importantly I photograph with my heart and not with my eyes. 

“Elena was so professional and such a light spirit; her patience is what makes her a wonderful photographer. I loved the direction she gave during the shoot and her words of encouragement to give me all the confidence I needed to slay. "
