A photograph that truly draws you in is one that touches the soul. When you look back at your session we've done, we want it to move you.

We believe is self expression. We believe in being wild and free. We believe in taking a moment of silence to meditate on where you are in life and how truly incredible that is. We believe that is what art is.

We are for those who love the in between moments, who prefer mood over technically correct, who stray from the traditional and like to get a little weird and who aren't afraid to run around or get in water to get a killer shot - just to add a little drama.

We work as hard as we can to create something that is real and that evokes emotion. We want all of those intimate moments that make you who you are!


I'll be the first to say that we aren't for everyone.

I left this session feeling better than I had about myself in YEARS! Molly made me feel instantly relaxed, comfortable and most of all confident. From time to time, I feel pretty... but this was the first time that I can remember feeling like I was sexy. This session turned into so much more for me personally than just a gift to my husband. XOXO!

"I went into this session a little excited, but mostly scared."

-Amber 

Now, having done it, and having seen the beautiful images, it is something that I believe EVERYONE should do. To see yourself and your body captured as they are, to see that yourself and your body can be BEAUTIFUL, just as they are. Not when you lose 50 pounds, not when you find the magic cure for stretch marks, but just as you are.

"THIS WAS NEVER, EVER SOMETHING I BELIEVED I COULD OR SHOULD DO."

-Rey

My experience with ELANEM was phenomenal!  They made me feel confident during the shoot. Their expertise and professionalism is next to none. I would highly recommend ELANEM to anyone who is serious about their images!

"LUKE AND MOLLY WORKED SO WELL TOGETHER AS A TEAM."

-Heidi

I've worked with Molly twice now and have been astounded each time with their professionalism and techniques. You're guaranteed to have a lot of fun and get stunning images that will make you feel gorgeous inside and out! 

"THEY ARE BOTH VERY COMFORTABLE TO BE AROUND AND EXCEPTIONALLY SKILLED IN THEIR WORK."

-Michelle

Bekah did an incredible job on my makeup and hair and Molly did a great job talking me through her vision of what she was envisioning for me and my photos. The finished product was amazing!  As a girl who has never felt confident in my body image, I can't believe how gorgeous I felt after seeing them. 

MOLLY TOOK THE THINGS I LOVED ABOUT MYSELF AND AMPLIFIED THEM.
