Elle photography

by Shawni

Elle has been busy doing photography lately.

After she did Claire’s baptism pictures back here, a few friends have asked for her services.

And I know I’m a little bit biased, but I sure think she does a great job.

She takes these all by herself, edits them beautifully and burns them on a CD for the families.  
…a great way to earn a little extra summer cash and develop a skill at the same time.
I couldn’t resist snapping a couple of her while we were looking for good lighting at a new place she was shooting.
 Love this girl.

Gotta get the mom in there too…

And she practices a little on her sisters.

…who don’t seem to mind too much 🙂

She is amazing. And I love that she has such an amazing summer job! I loved getting paid 10-15 dollars per hour to teach tennis lessons when the rest of my friends were working for minimum wage. 🙂

Kynslie is 4 weeks old, I have tried my self to take pics but I can never get good ones of my own kids and I dont have an editing program yet. How much would she charge.

Wow, Elle! You are a fantastic photographer! Shawni, I have a question for you: you mentioned a couple posts back that you were determined to turn our kids into bookworms this summer – do you have a plan in mind? We need some help!

I don't think you're biased at all, I'd hire her! Send her up to Canada!

Rekehl May 29, 2012 - 11:00 pm

Those are beautiful. I have tried forever to take good photos and can't seem to get the knack of it. Do you mind me asking what settings Elle used on her photos?

Gina May 30, 2012 - 9:09 am

Good question! I'll love to know about the settings too. I'm a french woman living in France and who has decided to give portraits a try this summer. Love your job Elle!

Holy crap! She's like a pro already! I'm sure you've answered this is some post somewhere, but what lens is she using?

Lindsey May 30, 2012 - 1:45 pm

I love the baptism photoshoot! My twin boys are getting baptized on Saturday. I would love to hire Elle to do a similar photo shoot for them (even if it's after their baptism). Please send me an email if she'd be willing. lindseyann_nelson@yahoo.com

Hi there. Loving her work! My son has recently started his own "business" with portrait work. We are having a hard time figuring out how to show people the pics without uploading all of them to a website. Also, how does Elle charge? Fixed rates, donation, etc. Does she spend time editing as well?

Thank you very much!

That is such a fantastic thing that she is doing. What does she use for editing? Photoshop? actions? something else?
