Photographer

Photographer Ellen Wolffs blog says:

I am a family photographer based in the New York Metro area, specializing in weddings, special events and portraits of childhood, in a natural fine art style.

Whether you have planned the most private, intimate Long Island beach wedding, or the swankiest birthday bash, my photography is intended to document your personal style and preserve the memories you remember and the moments you didn’t know happened.

I was drawn to her work from a whole different place. Like many of us, she has a love for the Rockaways. When Hurricane Sandy hit the Rockaways, people from all walks of life began to take photos of the devastation. Along with her camera and sense of space and time she brings us to the brink of what the storm has done. Through her eye we see clearly what this storms power really was. My family home was on Beach 38th street . The photograph below captures the boardwalk right there.

I got in touch with Ellen and asked her if I might be able to show her photographs on my Blog. She was very gracious and said I could do a post on her work. I was very excited. When I went to her web site and blog, I was so taken back by her work. There is much to see. But I was drawn to the pets for I have many dogs and cats and there is nothing like a photograph that shows your pets personalities.
