My name is Elle Shenell. I am a transplant to Southern California. I moved here 5 years ago from my home town of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have always been what you might call a dreamer and a gypsy.  


One day I decided to put 5 different cities in a hat, shook them up and pulled out Los Angeles. I packed up my car, took all the money I had and drove cross country.  It was during that drive that I truly honed in on my passion for photography.  The myriad of landscapes, the changing weather, the different faces. For me, it was truly a life-changing experience. 


I am drawn to photography because I absolutely love being able to capture the beauty in a moment that can be lost in the blink of an eye. Finding beauty in the mundane is the driving force for me.


My portfolio includes portraits, urban landscape, events, and food photography.  When it comes to my photography, whether professional or personal, it is my goal to bring out the beauty and personality of my subjects.
