Kind Words

After seeing some of Ellen’s work online, we asked her to do a newborn session with our son. We were so pleased and impressed that she captured that special time in such a beautiful and graceful way. We’ve received so many compliments on the photos she took. She was so patient and open to our ideas, and took time to incorporate them into the photo shoot. You can tell she puts a lot of thought and care into producing the best shot. We highly recommend her and hope to work with her again some day!

“Ellen have been gifted with an artistic eye. With her camera in hand, she captures life’s most precious moments. Her photographs of our wedding day will be forever admired and cherished”


Ellen Elizabeth photography was just what our large family was looking for. She came to our photo shoot prepared and ready to make our little ones smile. We ended up doing a shoot with my family of 6, my mother and brother and my sisters family of 4. It was a challenge for sure, but Ellen didn’t flinch. Our pictures came out beautiful and she got our edited cd to us in no time at all. We will cherish the memories made while shooting as well as the pictures for a lifetime. I would recommend her to anyone. Prices and service were amazing

Our family has hired Ellen Elizabeth Photography for several different events. We started with her doing shots for graduation pictures which, at the time were cutting edge and outside the box of typical photos I had seen. Each of my children were thrilled with her creativity and unique ideas for each one. All while capturing the personalities of who they are.
Then she did some shots of our grandchildren, which seem to be her favorite thing. The results have been outstanding and everyone has been thrilled. These pics will be treasures for a life time.
So naturally when our daughter was getting married, we contacted Ellen Elizabeth for engagement pictures and her wedding photos. Not only was each shot wonderful but she managed to capture some of the most important events, outside the typical “wedding shots”. And you would have never even known she was there. So many weddings I’ve been to, the photographer seems to make a nuisance of themselves, but rest assured, not Ellen.¬†She comes with my highest recommendation! You will not be disappointed!

We loved the photos Ellen took of our family. I had been looking for a photographer and found her by accident. I knew the instant I saw her work that I wanted her to do our pictures. Her photos are ethereal and stunning and she has a way of making the everyday look extraordinary. The photos she took of us were exactly what I had hoped. The light and color were amazing and the expressions she captured of our son were just precious. She was reasonably priced, fit us in on really short notice, and got the pictures to us quickly. We can’t wait to do another session with her!


Great family photographer and would recommend to anyone! Wonderful with our kids, always on time and polite! Love the work you do and wish you were closer for another session. Thanks for the memories you snapped for us!


I first heard of Ellen and her extraordinary work through mutual friends. I was convinced to have her photograph my firstborn Lydia Marie. She was so delicate and kind when handling my newborn and managed to capture the pure and innocent sweetness of my daughter. Ellen’s photography has a unique style and she is a flexible professional because she allowed me to incorporate a personal touch of a special present that My daughter received. Of course I had to have Ellen photograph my second daughter, Maria Lynn, and it was evident that Ellen’s photography maintained its divine quality. We even were able to incorporate that same special gift my first daughter received, which was a beautiful tutu. Ellen was able to make my second daughter’s photos original as well. My daughters took such a liking to her that we were even able to fit in a few family photos that were fun and in our very own backyard. Her props and accessories were so quaint that I had a hard time picking which ones I liked best! My Family simply enjoyed working with Ellen and if we were ever to have our third child we hope she would travel cross country to capture that joyous moment of our lives as well. Thank you Ellen for giving us the gift of memories we will never forget!


“Ellen is SUCH a talented photographer. The newborn pictures she took of my daughter are time capsules I go back to again and again. Those early moments in my daughter’s life were so precious, and thanks to Ellen I have them captured on film for posterity. Professional and personable, Ellen took the time to make sure each shot was setup perfectly- her attention to detail superb.


Ellen has taken many beautiful pictures of my children since our first newborn session over three years ago. Most precious to me are the photos she took this past summer in Washington Park in Albany, N.Y. During this time my father was terminally ill and in and out of the hospital; I brought him copies of the pictures Ellen took in the park because the children couldn’t visit. Needless to say, in his own words, he was captivated by the images of his grandchildren. During his frequent and long hospital stays, he always had these pictures displayed where he could see them; they brought him comfort during his final days and I am ever so grateful to Ellen for sharing her gift of photography with our family. Ellen’s work undoubtedly comes from her heart, capturing one precious moment in time, that I promise, you will cherish forever, I know I do!

When we were searching for someone to photograph a newborn session for our baby-to-be we did our research, asked for recommendations on social media and spoke to a ton of friends. Ellen Elizabeth came highly recommended and we were able to view her work and were immediately impressed. After speaking with her I knew that she was the perfect fit as she was very personable, accommodating, and laid back. We booked our session based on my due date and she kept in touch as the date got closer. The experience was wonderful and the nerves I had about how everything would go were instantly calmed. Ellen Elizabeth was fantastic with our son, took her time and created beautiful poses and adorable pictures. We will treasure them for years to come!

Ellen had a way of making my teenaged girls feel at ease in front of the camera. The session was fun for them, and the resulting pictures are stunning! Ellen captured, not only their beauty, but their personalities as well. I highly recommend Ellen Elizabeth Photography!

Ellen was a pleasure to work with! 3 children in a cold Christmas photo shoot is not an easy task, however, Ellen made them feel perfectly at ease and did everything she could to make our shoot beautiful and special. She really captured each of my kids individuality and even got my pre-teenage son to smile! The pictures were flawless and turned around in a timely manner. I gave them all as Christmas gifts that year and received so many compliments! A wonderful service and a wonderful woman to work with!
