About Me


I am an adventure loving outdoor enthusiast. I am here to help you capture the adventure that is life! I love playing in the outdoors and finding sweet nooks and crannies in nature to take photos. Want to climb a mountain? Scale a wall? Hike through a wooded forest? I'm here to help guide you and document the experience.


I specialize in natural light lifestyle photography that incorporates nature and focuses on not only the guided photographs, but on the storytelling ones.


I have over ten years of experience behind the camera and over 20 years leading outdoor adventure trips for all ages. My sessions focus on fun, safety and of course capturing the sweet moments in between.

I am very pleased to highly recommend Yelena’s photography services! We recently met with Yelena at an outdoor location near our house and that is dear to our hearts for a family photo shoot with our six month old daughter. Yelena comes prepared with props, blankets, creative ideas for compositions and silly headbands to make the kids laugh! I also really enjoyed how Yelena wanted to get to know us prior to the photo shoot to be able to best capture the moments she has with you.

"Yelena was not only professional, but personable. Her caring demeanor made both me and my high school senior feel comfortable during his photo shoot. This is not your ordinary photo session.. it was actually filled with laughter and quite enjoyable... Even for our introverted kid who is not comfortable in front of a camera lens. I highly recommend Yelena, for not only did we have a fun session, we now have a multitude of wonderful, joyful photos from that cold, bright morning!"
