thanks for visiting my homepage! My name is Elena and I am a family, newborn and maternity photographer currently based in Raleigh, NC,USA.
I was born in Russia and I studied Political Science and Economics in Germany where I have lived and worked for many years in the area of Executive Education. I always loved photography but I preferred to be a silent observer and not a photography maker.
My real passion for photography started when I moved to Brazil and had my first child. Becoming a mother made me see and feel many things differently. I suddenly realized how fast the time goes by and how important is it to keep our memories. This was the moment when I took the camera in my hands.
I am happy that after many years of hard studying and practicing I consider photography as my profession. I specialize on fine art portraits, family and newborn photography. I am constantly working on my skills, regularly attend workshops of the leading international photographers and try to follow in my work the newest trends of the photography world. Working with me you can be sure to receive high quality products that your children one day will thank you for.
I look forward to having the pleasure to capture those precious moments of and for your family,
