Meet Ellie in Florence

I am Texas born and raised, though my heart and life is in Florence, Italy. I am passionate about embracing life wholeheartedly, finding reasons to laugh, and pursuing creativity and authenticity. From street photography in Brooklyn to documenting quarantine time in Florence, I enjoy becoming immersed in an environment and capturing life. With a studio art background, I love seeking out color palettes, interesting lighting/textures/compositions and finding the beauty within the mundane. I love allowing a shoot to transform into what it needs to be, letting the moment be fluid and genuine, and truly capturing a moment in time. My hope is to convey the essence of the people I am photographing and use my camera to translate their unique qualities and aspects of their relationships that make them, them!

    Languages Spoken: English and conversational Italian

    Favourite Place to Shoot: The Oltrarno tends to be less crowded, and more "off the beaten path" (plus it has some of my favorite cafes and gelaterias, so I am never opposed to a pit stop).

Three Things

  1. I love to explore the city and its surrounding jewels. Almost nothing brings me more joy than spending a Saturday going to a local market and seeing the work and produce of local artisans/vendors. Whether it’s a vintage store, flea market, or antique shop, I also love hunting for unique pieces of clothing and decor, just waiting to live another life. And of course, being in the epicenter of the Renaissance, I am never opposed to going to a museum or wandering into a historic church or garden. If I’m feeling more adventurous, I love exploring the outdoors, biking, rock climbing, etc. If it’s more of a rainy day, you’ll find me working with my hands, sewing, drawing or painting. On a Friday evening, I love any outdoor live music and sharing an aperitivo followed by a long dinner with my friends. Enjoying the daily joys of life!
  2. I cannot live without my morning coffee (admittedly also usually my afternoon macchiato).
  3. I once decided to do stand up comedy in Austin, TX. In case you were wondering, yes - it was a disaster. I haven’t decided if I did this to make a fool of myself or simply to have a fun fact, but, hey, look now!
