A little about me

Hey there! I'm Elaina... I am just a Jesus lovin' Yankee turned Southern Belle. Most days you can find me sipping a honey vanilla latté or chasing down a sunset, camera in hand. I love all things creative and try to constantly surround myself with nature and beauty. People know me as a busy baker, picture taker, and music maker. I've been blessed to travel all across the globe from Mozambique to Malaysia and now to settle in a place with such stunning views as Coastal Virginia. My husband Spencer and I tied the knot in October 2016 with a beautiful Southern wedding!


I am seeking to serve the world with joy, celebrate the beauty of life, and capture, graceful, airy images for every client. My passion is to highlight the personalities and love that your family has been blessed with. I not only love the art of photography, but also believe that each of us are made wonderfully unique by God and that should be celebrated in an authentic way during your session.


My professional career has been largely child and family focused, serving as a teacher and children's minister. I am very comfortable with kids of all ages and am just a big kid at heart! I would love the opportunity to capture the memories and milestones in your life which will be cherished forever and always.

We are so happy to be located in one of the most beautiful parts of the entire country! Coastal Virginia offers a wide variety of backdrops, from rural countryside, historic mansions, lighthouses, urban settings, and of course... the beach! It is a photographer's dream come true and with an incredible ocean surf and blue sky background, you can create incredible memories that you will cherish for years to come!

We also travel to other states and are willing to travel internationally to provide quality service to our clients wherever the journey (and camera) may take us!
