more about me!

I also go by professional hair + dress fluffer, adventure partner, bodyguard, lover for sweater weather, pups, tacos and margaritas. 

Hi, I’m Elena!

Professional 📷 + HYpe woman to all 🙌🏽



I firmly believe that teamwork creates the best results. Trust comes from working as a team & knowing that by working together the best will happen. And the more trust there is between us the more creative we become! Regardless of how we work together. 

I believe in community over competition. Selflessness over selfishness. So from the moment you book a session, become one of mentees, or attend one of my classes - we are a team. This life and entrepreneur journey isn't meant to be a solo trip but...TOGETHER!

Thank you again for capturing us! This means more to us than you know! It was a highlight of our week and gave us some alone time with each other. Haven't had it in a while since baby girl 🥰 You made us feel super comfy because we had NO idea what we were doing! So excited to work with you and build this brand girlfriend!!

Elena! We're speechless. Literally! These photos are more than we expected or imagined !!!

A Cozy Winter Session

You made me feel so comfortable; within the first 20 minutes, we captured some of the best poses and angles in front of the Dior store. Some of the best pictures came from you literally kneeling on the wet concrete to capture the motion in my walk. As the shoot went on, you showed me what she captured and I was so impressed. Elena , you have a great eye and is versatile in how you take photos. I can honestly say this was one of the best photo shoot experiences I've had. Thank you!

Since getting my photos back, two local campaign managers have reached out to me in need of a male model for a client.

I absolutely loved your communication throughout the entire process, it was very clear & concise! The quality of my images are impeccable, hands down some of the best photography work that I’ve received so far and I can’t wait to visit Chicago again & book another session!”

Not only did you make me feel comfortable; you provided so much guidance to me during the photoshoot which is a level of service that you rarely receive from some photographers.
