A picture is worth a thousand words!
Elena Felton was raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She was fascinated by photography at a young age. Her parents introduced her to a camera at 10 years old and from that moment, her world changed. Her father was her first client, she took pictures of him whenever he wasn’t paying attention, she also took pictures of her toys, flowers, and relatives. She admired everything about her camera, especially the clicking noise! After graduating from undergrad, she purchased her first camera, a Nikon D3200 which was two years ago, after she turned her passion for photography into a career. Her photos are elegant and vibrant with a touch of soft colors and amazing details. She’s work with clients around the DMV area and recently collaborated with local vendors in Baltimore to host her work. Elena’s is the founder of Belle Imagery Portraits, an up and coming business in the Baltimore area. She is my May Inspirational Woman of the Month!
