Meet Elena

Elena is a mother, wife, photographer, designer, business coach and mentor living in Maui, Hawaii.

She specializes in organic light filled naturally posed portraiture and loves documenting real moments between people. In addition to running a portrait and wedding photography business she is also the owner of Modern Market; the marketplace for professional photographers as well as a business coach for other creatives in the industry.

For Elena, work and life are inextricably bound together. Her business success which is wrapped around her creative passions has allowed her to work from anywhere in the world and has granted her the financial freedom to spend more time with her husband and young children creating beautiful sessions for her clients. 

When it comes to her photography, her passion lies in documenting real moments for people by taking a lifestyle approach to direct her clients. She loves styling sessions and helping her clients get their dream sessions by working closely with them in the entire process. 

She has been married to her love for almost 10 years. Together they have a very creative 8-year-old daughter who loves to paint and a thrill-seeking boy who loves to go on adventures. 

Visiting Maui?

Your time on Maui deserves to be remembered with professional portraits. A Portrait or Elopement session is the perfect way to document your time on the island. I offer special sessions for those on vacation and custom made packages for those who are eloping on the island.
