PHOTOGRAPHER . DESIGNER . ART LOVER
I’m ELLE, photographic artist, fashion enthusiast & former model
Throughout my 15 years of modeling, I worked with dozens of amazing photographers, MUAs, and retouchers who have helped me with my posing, my editing, and most importantly, my attention to detail. I’ve developed a unique understanding of what goes on in front of the camera…the nerves, the awkwardness, the self-consciousnesses, I’ve definitely felt it all too! I’m proud to say that I have mastered ways to coach even my shyest of clients to achieve stunning portraits during their sessions.
After working with 70 plus companies as a commercial photographer, I learned to love my camera and be creative with it. I find it easier to work with products, but I fell more in love with portraiture and I wanted to offer an experience far better than anything I’ve encountered before. I’ve built my entire boutique brand with luxury and elegance in mind and sought out the best suppliers in the world to bring my ideas to life. I’m so honored to be able to share this amazing experience with my amazing clients!
MY CLIENTS HAVE BEEN FEATURED IN
HAWAI’I BASED PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
I wanted to be able to offer my clients an experience that they could look back on and tell their grandchildren about. When I’m working with a client they get my undivided attention as I aim to meet every need and desire for their dream shoot. They are pampered and celebrated, which is important for me when I am working with people who’ve brought themselves to where they are against all odds. I can relate and I treat everyone who steps in the studio as royalty, deserving of a truly one-of-a-kind luxury experience!
I spend most of my days perfecting my photography style, designing beautiful gowns and sets for my clients, and building up my studio…I honestly love every minute of it! For me, what I do is so much more than just a job, it’s something I picture myself doing for years to come because it allows me to show my clients their beautiful selves through timeless photographs they can cherish forever and pass down through their generations. It fills me withs much joy and purpose, I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

GET TO KNOW ME
Just a few of the things that are prominently featured in my life
LOVE TO EAT:
I have Pizza, Mexican, and Korean food oozing through my pores. I love Mediterranean food as well, but Hawai’i is limited on options.
IF I WASN'T A PHOTOGRAPHER..
I’d be working for NASA. I did my time in the United States Space Force and I am still a huge space/sci-fi nerd. And yes, I’d volunteer for a space flight without hesitation.
MY FAVE MUSICIANS
I have always loved music since I was a baby. My current favorites are Jessie Ware, Billie Eilish, Doja Cat & Lana Del Rey…my aesthetic is a mashup of them all.
I'M MOST THANKFUL FOR:
My family, friends, and clients! They are absolutely everything to me. Their unwavering support has kept me going down this road towards my passion!
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST THING I'VE DONE FOR MYSELF IN A LONG TIME. I ACTUALLY PLAN TO BOOK ANOTHER SESSION SOON BECAUSE THIS IS JUST LIKE THERAPY FOR ME! ELLE IS SO PROFESSIONAL AND SO FUN AT THE SAME TIME. SHE WILL FEEL LIKE YOUR BEST FRIEND THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS!
