About Me

Hi! I’m Elly, the photographer a.k.a. mamarazzi. I’ve always loved being behind the camera, but photography became a serious passion when my daughter was born. From day one, I was on a mission to capture every detail…things like her baby rolls, silly expressions, and special moments with her dadddy.  I’m also obssessed with creating milestone albums for my children.  I’m creating tangible memories for them to cherish and to pass down to their own children one day. You can’t really do that with iphone photos.  :-)  I have my own selfish reasons too.  My daughter is becoming a beautiful young woman right before my eyes, but I can always relive her earlier years through images I captured… the smell of her newborn hair, her first steps and many other precious milestones of her life that I never want to forget – now as a big sister who adores her brand new baby brother.

My kiddos are my everything. It’s because of them I’ve grown as a photographer and truly can appreciate how fleeting life’s precious moments are. I would love the opportunity to capture these moments for your family, so you can cherish them like I do mine for years to come.
