I know that Christmas is long gone, but in December last year, I had the great pleasure of going to spend a whole day with Elena and her family. Elena is one of the coolest bloggers out there and to be honest, I was a bit nervous meeting her. I am so clueless when it comes to trends or fashion. She doesn’t know this, but it took me forever to pick out what I was going to wear during the shoot. 🙂 In the end I picked what I always do, something super comfortable because when I do a full day shoot I need the comfort more than anything else. She was nice enough to ignore my outfit 🙂
I love doing Day in the Life sessions because it allows me to know new people quite well and learn more abut their life. When it comes to bloggers I think a lot of people have a very unrealistic idea of what they actually do. You probably think of them as these super entitled people who got famous by accident and now they get everything handed out to them.
Well… If some of those exist, that’s fine, but Elena is not in that category. She is a highly intelligent woman, who worked really hard, took risks, showed up constantly, followed her heart and managed to break through. Not because she was lucky, but because she didn’t give up. She is also blessed with a very supportive husband which always helps.
They are now parents to sweet Ema who loves playdough, loves to play hide and seek with her dad, hates most foods and likes to give her parents a run for their money. I love kids!
Anyway, I will let the photos tell you a better story of their family life.
