I've been dreaming about beautiful pictures of my family. All dreams should come true!!! It is hard to express how greatful I am to Elly! She was the first photographer who didn't simply made pictures of my kids and myself. Those were pictures of our emotions, feelings, relationships, love and happiness!!!

...Not only my headshot photo experience was fun, but Elly was able to capture a balance, so that the pictures both look like me and I am proud to display them to clients. I now have a "social" head shot, a "friendly therapist" head shot and "hired by big corporation" head shot. I did not know that it was possible to have so many "looks" that I liked!..
