I'm A Mom...
who found a love for photography after relentless attempts to find a local photographer who fit my needs. I wanted something affordable, yet modern and unique. I wanted a package that outlined all costs upfront, to eliminate surprise at check out, and I wanted someone who would stick to deadlines and dates, as promised.
In reviewing my own standards, I developed Ellie Mellie and a business foundation that centers around flexibility and my clients.
is named after my late grandparents, Eleanor (nicknamed Ellie) and her husband Melvin (Mel). When you put Mel and Ellie together, you get Mellie! It was only fitting that a photography company built on love, family and laughter, be named after these two, whos lives were also built on love, family and laughter.
It's So Much More...
then just photography, it's creation! Having lived most my life in a fairy tale; creativity, imagination and artistry just come natural. I love testing my own personal comfort zones, creating a storyline or illusion, and hatching up ideas. There is just something magical about being able to freeze time, and in bringing dreams to life. Just a touch of whimsy... a bit of sparkle (or maybe a lot of that!)...a dash of fancy...that's what Ellie Mellie is made of.
A Little Note...
When I first started this business, I never imagined it to grow the way that it has. I always knew I wanted to be a business owner, but also wanted to be a mentor, an investor and a guide to other people to make their dreams come true. This is where my team comes in.
I couldn't possibly run this company without them, and I certainly would not have anyone behind Ellie Mellie that didn't have a special talent, an excellent personality or a passion for art and what we do. We each bring something to the table, and because we only shoot and do what we are good at, I am confident that our clients are getting the very best of each of us.
I hope you are able to develop your own personal relationship with the team here at Ellie Mellie and we so look forward to providing you with amazing images of your family!
