I'm Elena Sullivan

Photograher. Creative Adventurer. Online Educator.

Whether I am working or traveling, I love taking photos. Creating visual stories and powerful images is a never-ending creative challenge. 

I flew halfway across the world with a one-way ticket and built a photography business in a country where I didn’t speak a language. Yeah!

“Sharing is caring,” and I apply that in my online education: comprehensive knowledge and practical advice based on my personal experience.

Nice to meet you!

Branding photos can significantly upgrade the visual side of your business and elevate your online presence.

Taking photos since 2007

I’ve been a photographer for fifteen years and specialized in weddings, engagements, and family sessions. Several years ago, I shifted towards underwater, individual portraits, and boudoir photography. That brought me the understanding that I can provide more value by doing individual photo sessions.

Personal journey

From flip-flops to heels

I’d done my search for personal style and had a journey from “flip-flops to heels.” My life-changing year when I traveled halfway around the world with a one-way ticket, one suitcase, a camera and landed in a country where I didn’t know anyone and didn’t speak the language changed my perception of life’s values. There is so much to learn while going through a change and experiencing uncertainty. I love sharing my knowledge & experience. This is one of the reasons I created the “Fine Art Lifestyle” blog, dancing with stories about joy and laughter, tears and frustration, love & hugs, break-ups, and the search for happiness.

How I became a branding photographer?

Let’s make you shine

One of my best friends is a life coach & radio host Alma Gonzalez. The first time we met, she already had a strong brand message but was struggling with the visual side of her business and showing her personality online. I believe what she does is amazing, and I wanted to help her by taking photos that show her beauty and the genuine essence of her coaching program. One day, while we were enjoying coffee & tiramisu, I offered her to do a branding photoshoot.

She was hesitant because she never did one, and it took her several weeks to agree. However, it became an exciting and open-minded experience for her and opened up a whole new way of showing up online. Her positive feedback made me realize that with my photography experience and communication style, I can help other entrepreneurs, business owners, professionals and creatives to have a joyful and effortless photo session experience. With meaningful, creative, and high-end quality photos as a result. And so it began…

I OFFER JOYFUL & EFFORTLESS photosession experience  

I did several branding photoshoots where I was asked to help with styling and image consultation. Every outfit proportionally used with accessories can remix the general vibes and add a necessary character to the image. So, using my knowledge of art, passion for personal style, and experience building an appealing visual picture, I started taking branding photos for everyone looking to grow their business and build a personal brand. 

Throughout the changes I’ve encountered in my adult life, I stay true to my artistic background, adventurous spirit, compassionate communication, and bring elements of art and joy in every photography session.

Positive change is transformation and growth. Branding photos can become a meaningful change that your business needs to expand. Allow yourself to shine in front of the camera, and that light will attract the people who need it to grow.

Life is about an exchange of knowledge, light, and love. We share what we have so others can grow, and we receive it back as a gentle kiss from the Universe.

Your personal branding photos are a soft touch of glamour that invigorates and infuses you with the courage and confidence needed to move forward in your business.
