Whitney was such a great model. I don’t do high school senior portraits that often, but they’re always fun, even when we have to endure very chilly winds for some outdoor photos.


Congrats to Whitney on almost being a high school graduate!

In my mind, a year doesn’t make that much of a difference in older kids – but looking back at Spencer and Morgan‘s photos from last summer, they really have grown up! We met up again for more back-to-school photos, and as usual, these two were fun (even though Spencer in particular is not a huge fan of photo shoots – but who can blame him?). We had some close encounters with angry geese, but we lucked out on a beautiful day!

Stay away from Morgan, geese! 🙂

I love photographing children, love it. But teenagers are in their own category, and I have so much fun on shoots with them (even though they usually make me feel old; when did that happen??). Teenagers/high school students have the right blend of confidence and, at least for the one hour they’re with me, discipline. They will do what I tell them and look great doing it, but they also come up with their own ideas, which are usually pretty awesome…

For example, Blaise picked our location, and it was perfect. Go Blaise!

Check him out:


And I love this close-up:


One last shot, one of my favorites:


We also included Blaise’s 13-year-old sister, Mia, in the shoot – photos of her and the two of them to come.

Thanks for the great shoot and awesome location, Blaise!

I love this family. In May, I had a session with 6-year-old McKenzie, and she was just too sweet. Her grandparents (they look way too young for me to be able to say that), Lisa and John, came along for the shoot, but this time, I got to photograph them with their super-handsome son Charlie, who just started his senior year of high school.

One thing I love about working so much with kids is that they are truly themselves (most of the time) when I’m photographing them. It’s usually much harder for adults to be natural in front of the camera. Charlie and his parents threw that concept out the window. Good looks, photogenic subjects, great personalities, and a fun location all made for an awesome shoot. 🙂

Check out the gorgeous trio:

Lisa, Charlie, and John

And again… Can you tell they were having fun? I love it!

John, Charlie, and Lisa

Now here’s Charlie testing out his modeling skills (so handsome, right?! and the camera does not hate him):


One more of Charlie:


And now for a couple of the lovebirds:

Ellie P. Campbell Photography 2009-2010It’s my one-year anniversary as Ellie P. Campbell Photography. 🙂

(Well, yesterday was, but I didn’t have time to post about it.) Although I did photography well before August 2009, this is celebrating one official year on my own. As with most things all-consuming yet wonderful, it feels like this past year has flown by but also as if I’ve been doing this for years and years. I absolutely love what I do and am very happy to be where I am.

Here’s a very long photo-year-in-review…

A shot from my first official shoot on August 1, 2009 of beautiful Eva and her gorgeous little guy Julian:

Julian and Eva

Followed by E’s birth just a couple of weeks later (and thus began my camera’s love affair with my very edible nephew):

Newborn E

And then I photographed the marriage of our great friends Larry and Erin (i.e. Larin) – full blog post here:


Then there were many fall little-ones shoots in Cleveland, like for the amazing Lily:


And December babies, like Anabella:


With the holiday season came photographing E for their New Year‘s card… (don’t you want to ring in the New Year with this scrumptious little barkeep?):

Ethan New Year

During our lovely Floridian winter, Talia and I shot the campaign for her company, Green Apple Accessories:

Talia - Green Apple Accessories

Then in February, there was a snowy trip to Cleveland, filled with lots of fun wintry shoots, like with E’s cousin Nathan (here with his mama Jill):

Nathan and Jill

…and of course some shoots indoors to defrost, like with this awesome crew – Brad, baby Alexander (so many baby boys!), and Christina:

Brad, Alexander, and Christina

There was this super-fun family session… Here are the adoring grandparents Marcia and Richard with three of their lucky grandkids, Cadence, Brian, and Cadence’s little brother JT:

Cadence, Marcia, Brian, Richard, and JT

Then we had an incredible family trip to Israel, visiting family, touring the country, and putting E in fun antique chairs at the Yafo flea market:

E in Yaffo

A few hours after getting off the plane from Israel, my work with the Sarasota Film Festival started – This was the first (and hopefully not the last) year I was a staff photographer. There were a bunch of events that week, including the In Conversation with… series with people such as Patricia Clarkson and Vincent D’Onofrio:

Vincent D'Onofrio

And incredible hooping performance outside the premiere of The Hooping Life:

Hoola Monsters

And more fun stars like Stanley Tucci and Steve Buscemi:

Beautiful Ava was born in the spring…

Ava and Holli

Also in the spring, my super-smart brother-in-law Jonah received his MD and PhD simultaneously and then became published in JAMA:


Babies I’d met and photographed as newborns (both friends and clients) began walking and having birthdays, like little Sydney:


There were also some “older” clients during May’s Cleveland trip, like the beautiful 6-year-old McKenzie:


Later in May in Boston, this striking and happy duo, Lucy and Chase, were engaged:


Also in Boston, I photographed the gorgeous bffs, Danielle and Abigail:

Danielle and Abigail

Back in FL, this summer started off with a bunch of newborns, like the precious tiny Gia:


And also one really touching 50th anniversary shoot for Ron and Sonia:

Ron and Sonia

To round out the summer of babies and anniversaries and to top off an amazing first year as Ellie P. Campbell Photography, there was Molly and Lou‘s beautiful beach wedding on Islamorada, FL in July:

Molly and Lou

I am so, so grateful for and excited about how this past year has turned out. I’m lucky to have a husband, family, and friends who have encouraged me to go for it as well as to have incredible clients who let me share in so many intimate, special moments and events in their lives and who have made my job fun and inspiring. I am looking forward to what unfolds over the next year! Thank you, everyone!

Last week, I posted some photos of the beautiful Abigail (my sister-in-law) and Danielle. As promised, here are some photos of just Danielle (these are for you, Debbie!)…

Look at those eyes (and they match her hair!):


And a few others:


I absolutely loved photographing Danielle and Abby. I’m flashing forward to 2014 when they’re graduating high school, doing this again… Wild.

This shoot was so much fun. Danielle’s mom asked me to photograph her for her 8th grade graduation, but she was totally okay with Abigail, Danielle’s best friend – who happens to also be my gorgeous sister-in-law, coming along. Photographing friends together is great – who wouldn’t be more comfortable in front of the camera with their best friend around?

And I love these two girls. They’re sweet, beautiful, hilarious, and fun. We had perfect weather and a great time. They make me feel old and 14 again at the same time.

Since this session was intended for Danielle, she’ll get another post with just her photos, but here are several of the two together. Get ready for lots of photos…


Danielle and Abigail

These two don’t stop giggling. I love it. Reminds me of sitting around with my best friend growing up, laughing just because of a look the other one gave or a word she said.

Love this setting (thanks, Lou!):

So cute (and both of them with their mile-long legs – jeez!):

A big squeeze…

I hope they can look back in 20 years and remember how much fun they’ve always had together. I get the feeling these two will be close forever.
