Hey there! My name is Jenna Elliott and I’m the photographer behind One Eleven Photography. I specialize in creative, candid, natural-light family and lifestyle photography.
The first thing you should know about me is there has never been anything that I have ever wanted to do more than be a photographer. I love my job. I love that, since the first day I picked up my first camera at age 13, it has allowed me to meet so many amazing and different people. I love that every photo shoot holds something unexpected and unique. I love that every day is different. I love finding moments of joy and holding them still.
On the subject of what I love, besides taking photos, I am happiest when I’m spending time with my husband, our son, James, and our sweet pup, Stella, sharing a home-cooked meal (and some nice wine!) with family and friends or going on a spontaneous adventure with my crew. When I was a little girl, I dreamt of traveling the world as a National Geographic photographer. (I’m pretty sure I wasn’t alone with that dream.) While I continue to have a constant urge to travel and explore, these days there is nowhere else I’d rather be than at home.
After earning a degree in photojournalism from San Francisco State University and starting my career working for newspapers and producing documentary films, I started One Eleven Photography in 2009--nearly 15 years ago! Since those early days, I have continued to keep my photos as candid as possible and keep posing to a minimum. The relaxed, laid-back nature of my photo sessions very much reflects my own personality. Mix all that together and the result is clients who feel free to be themselves and photographs that capture their precious, fleeting moments in fun and creative way.
If you’re interested in my photography services, I would love to hear from you! You can reach me using this contact form or send an email at hello[at]oneelevenphotography[dot]com. Follow along on Instagram for my recent work and here for my personal adventures.
I am based in Pasadena, CA, frequently travel to San Francisco as well as Portland and I am always happy to adventure further out!
Whether it’s a photo session for your baby-on-the-way, your newborn or the whole crew, Jenna takes a less traditional, more creative approach to her family work. No super posed, old-school photos here. Instead she aims to capture natural, authentic moments that let your personalities shine.
Sessions can be expected to last for about one to two hours and can be done at your home and/or a fun location around town. The best time of day for the session is late afternoon, but we will want to consider the time that is best for your kiddos when scheduling the session.
Please contact us using the “contact us” link above or email us at hello [at] jennaelliottphoto.com if you're interested in booking a family session.
In addition to her family work, Jenna creates high-quality lifestyle, food, interior and product imagery for brands and publications big and small.
Clients include: Target, Solly Baby, True Botanicals, Lou & Grey, Hadley Girl, Mini Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Artifact Uprising, Minted, The Knot, Camille Styles, Studio DIY, Glitter Guide, Cheeks & Co, Domino
