Elaine McKellips-7.jpg


a humanitarian + travel photographer

I’m passionate about working with nonprofits, NGOs, and social impact businesses and brands. I want my work to inspire people to love harder, travel often, give back, and lead more intentional lives.

My home base is in Houston, Texas. I love to read, I’m obsessed with my chocolate lab pup, Lincoln, and my husband David and I love to travel together.



I have a heart for capturing the good in the world & sharing it with others. I know firsthand how hard, but rewarding & important humanitarian work can be. It's my honor to capture the work your organization is doing. Whether you're empowering women, building orphanages, or working with artisans, if you have a heart for humanity, I'm your girl.

I want your donors + supporters to connect on a visual level so they can truly understand your impact & the impact they have when they support you.


Brand content, product, styled shoots — let’s get creative together & bring that vision you have for your brand to life.

I won’t just be your photographer. I’ll help dream up ideas, plan the shoot, style it, and even give you tips on how to present the content in a way that best represents your brand’s identity.

I also love shooting for brands when I’m traveling and curating content that you can use for your marketing purposes.
