About Me

Elnaz ellie Shokrollahi

As a child, I had no clue what I wanted to be but I knew it had to be something to do with being happy and help other to be happy too. After years of searching, photography makes me feel alive. It is mostly because photography is about people. It is keeping memories so you go back and say ‘yaaaaa’ I remember this day.

My story doesn’t start with taking photos when I was five years old. I developed the passion for photography in the past few years when I was completing my graduate studies in engineering. In fact, I studied engineering and completed my doctor of philosophy. I kind am a tech girl who is passionate about photography. For me taking pictures is connecting with people, I interact with them and leave a mark that will stay forever.


When I am behind my camera, I am in the moment, focusing to capture as much as possible within the small moments that flash by endlessly. I love documenting the beauty and have put hours to master it. The shutter sound empowers me to be creative and I feel like I am living my purpose.



  • I am so grateful that I have found Eli, both as a friend and a photographer :). We are so very impressed with her work and professionalism and her ability to capture some of the most precious moments of our lives. We worked with her twice so far, for our engagement and maternity shoots and both experiences were nothing but pleasant. The detail and quality of her work is impeccable and simply amazing! I love my pictures – I can’t stop looking at them!. Thank you for paying so much attention to all of those little things that are so important and meaningful to us! You truly caught the emotions of that day and I am so excited about that! I will absolutely recommend you to all of my friends!. Thanks again for helping document our maternity shoot in a professional, artistic manner, we are so proud to display our photos and looking forward to more opportunities to work with you with our family in near future. Excellent work Eli!!!

  • I book a session with Ellie for my real-estate in Downtown Toronto and the results turned out great. I’m so happy with the pics- they are exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to show the simplicity, comfort and accessibility in my unit and condo and her pics are a great way to convey that. Forever thankful for this.

  • Ellie was lovely to work with, very excited and keen to capture beautiful shots at our fundraising gala. She was great with communicating and delivering photos on time. We would love to work with her again!

  • Choosing baby photographer can be super overwhelming and Ellie was the best decision we made when planning for our little guy. It is truly an amazing experience to watch her interact with our son; she is a baby whisperer! She is professional and incredibly experienced and I wouldn't trust anyone else except Ellie!. We received our photos early, the editing was superb (just perfect, not overly done), and the props were exactly what we liked (she has so many to choose from so that you don't have to worry a single thing). I will definitely come back for future photos. Can't wait!

  • My husband and I booked a family photo session with Ellie in Fall of 2018 and were very happy with her work. We have a 2 year old who was bouncing off the walls the entire session, and a 3 month old who was either asleep or crying through the shoot, but Ellie still managed to get some fantastic shots in the limited time she was with us. She even showed up with props and things to bribe our 2YO with to make things more manageable. The whole experience was great, everything from communication and coordination prior to the session, all the way through to the timely provision of the photos and files afterwards. Since then we have booked her for a second session as a gift for a family member.

  • Elnaz is super easy to work with, when you feel awkward, not know how to stand, just trust her! She is so professional and yet so fun to work with. We had an amazing session and enjoyed every second of it. We love you and your pictures Elnaz❤️

  • OMGosh I am at a loss for words. I am a super busy lady and I hired Elnaz to come to my house at 8.30am before an appointment!! She showed up bubbly and ready to rock. We powered through for about an hour and a half and she was super creative, coming up with ideas and really wanted the best for my brand. I felt like my best friend was over, just to have a giggle! It was super fun and relaxing and no pressure, she kept showing me pictures to make sure I was happy as we went along. I was buzzing for the rest of the day after the photoshoot and over the moon at the professional quality of the photos and various options I can use. She really is one of the best photographers out there, I am so happy she's in my life 😍

  • Ellie is truly a beautiful and extremely talented soul and this comes out through her work. I call myself lucky, seeing Ellie's Instagram feed, and was like a miracle finding her, as I have mentioned many times. Ellie is my life saver. Ellie made us feel so relaxed and captured ever emotions so I thank her. Ellie captured sweet 16th birthday of my daughter, Rojene. I thank her for her kindness, generosity and friendship throughout the whole process. We felt so at ease with her, before, during and after the party. Of course we enjoyed every minute being with her and we love her. With all our love.

  • Elnaz is one of the most talented photographer that I have met. The most beautiful pictures that I have from my daughter, during her early years, Elnaz took them. The most amazing and interesting part is that all the pictures she took of my daughter was during a birthday party of our mutual friend without any preparation. My daughter was one year old at the time and Elnaz didn't even as her to look at her. Elnaz just engaged with my daughter and took the best photos of her. This is what an amazing photographer does!! I am thrilled to have found out that she has started photography as her new career and I am sure she will be one of the most successful person in this business.

  • Knowing Elnaz for years, I have seen her grow as a professional photographer. She is very talented and patient. She patiently spend time taking photos of you, guiding you with the poses, and making you laugh so you have more natural photos. Last photoshoot was during my pregnancy which I got great photos. She edited more than what she had promised, and pass the photos to me within a week. I loved every single one of those photos. I highly recommend Elnaz to be your photographer, she is an awesome person and very fun to work with.
