Hello, my name is Eleanor and I take pictures of people.  Most of the time I take pictures of small people, but from time to time I take pictures of big people as well.  I live outside of Baltimore, Maryland with one husband, two daughters, and one dog.  I do a lot of things, but I like doing photography the most.  Screen shot 2015-10-31 at 9.56.28 PM

Here are a few things I like to brag about have done:

  • Exhibited the collection Mother/Daughter’ life at the US Air Force Academy’s Permanent Professors Art Gallery (2014)
  • Received an Individual Artist Award for photography from the Maryland State Arts Council
  • Founded the website and online community PhotoGrief
  • Photographed a wide range of people, places, events, and occasions

I’ll be honest, I don’t like to photograph…

  • Babies in baskets
  • Props
  • Forced smiles
  • Manufactured moments

But I do like to photograph…

  • Kids being kids
  • Babies being babies
  • Families being family
  • Crazy faces
  • Weird hairdos
  • Mismatched outfits
  • Mess
  • Creativity
  • Imagination
  • Coffee table leaps
  • Real emotion (all kinds)
  • Milestones
  • The thing that makes you unlike any other person on earth          
  • The beauty of the everyday
  • Friends
  • Community
  • Love
