I am a photographer who believes that everybody needs great pictures.
My name is Elena Makarova and I am a portrait photographer. I launched my portrait and family photography business in 2009 in Moscow, Russia and after moving to the US in 2010 I continue to develop my business in Northern Virginia and DC Metropolitan area.
My goal is to make your portrait session enjoyable and to capture the unique personality of your family. I will use my expertise, knowledge of lighting, and photo editing skills to make you satisfied with the way everyone looks in their portraits.
In my personal life I love to travel with my family and enjoy street photography that helps me expand my boundaries and bring a fresh perspective to my work.
I work in Reston, Herndon, Ashburn, Sterling, Chantilly, and DC Metropolitan area.
