13 Years of experience

I’m Elena, San Jose California based freelance photographer.  

If I would have to sum up what I do in one sentence, this would be it:

I'm trying to portray, to embody the elusive moment on the canvas, to give the opportunity to see and experience the touching moments and happy events again; be found in them a strength for living, an energy for creative, an inspiration for thinking.

I love the quote by Satsuki Shibuya: “By doing what you love you inspire and awaken the hearts of others,” and that’s exactly what I want to do, because honestly I believe life is too short and too valuable to NOT follow our dreams.

A fun fact about me

I love life in all its diversity and originality; I'm sincerely interested in people, society and infinitely fleeting time. Photography was a dream for me that became a reality. I love to capture the subtle facets of beauty, genuine moments and relationships that are meaningful, sometimes wild, untraditional and crazy, at time adventurous, intentional, gloriously exciting, and completely yours. I love the little details and the epic moments because that’s what makes life so special.
