My name is Elaine Gray and I am a photographer based in West Michigan. My love for photography started in my childhood and I have the wonderful opportunity to continue my passion now as a portrait photographer. I am educated in posing and lighting and I use this knowledge to assist in making every client look their best. I would love to have the opportunity to assist you with your photography needs and help you bring your vision to life. If you would like to know a little bit about my personality, here are some fun random facts about me:
-My favorite things (besides photography) in order of importance are God, family, dogs (specifically Havanese), Jane Austen, food, technology and Netflix.
-I almost always cry when photographing births and weddings.
-I’m a recovering awkward person/introvert and will just apologize right now for the awkward silence and/or conversation you and I might have.
-I love laughing and probably laugh 200% more than the average person per day. It’s what keeps me sane and I find so much joy in being silly and laughing with my family and friends.
-I HATE exercise and the only reason I do it is to maintain my status as a foodie and to reach my goal of climbing to the top of Machu Picchu someday.
-As of right now, my favorite scents in the whole world are Chinatown in NYC, puppy breath, lavender, rose, southern magnolias and a ribeye steak on a flaming hot grill.
-Other aspirations include volunteering at a baby rescue somewhere in the world, becoming a beach bum, getting a part in any musical and eating my way around the globe.
I hope this gives you a better sense of my personality and helps you in making your decision to hire me for your photography needs.
