DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Elaine curates the photography and videography seen throughout our site and woven through our childbirth education materials.
She is driven by her memories; above everything else her photos and keepsakes are her most valuable possessions. She can see a photo from my childhood and immediately remember the way the air smelled or how she felt when it was taken. The preservation of these memories is what led her to photography and what drives her to capture life’s most precious moments for her clients.
Elaine has an eye for seeing the little moments that would’ve otherwise been forgotten—the way a mother rubs her cheek against her new baby’s hair, the loving gaze of a father watching his children play in the grass, the look of relief when parents hear their baby’s first cry. These fleeting moments are what make each story, each relationship, so unique and personal.
Relationships are everything to Elaine. As the daughter of an Air Force chaplain, she grew up all around the U.S. which meant “home” was wherever they were stationed. Moving around the country, Elaine learned the importance of close family relationships which plays a huge role in how she photograph families and couples.
