My Work

SHINES THROUGH INTUITION, CONNECTION & EMOTIONS

Kia Ora, I am Elina

Born in the French Alps, I grew up in the mountains and always spent a lot of time in nature. But my real journey of connection to nature and myself began in 2019 when I chose to solo travel in New Zealand. I got to experience the healing power of nature and the unconditional power of myself and humanhood. Along my path, the whispers of my heart became stronger and stronger – I needed to follow my intuition and so I completed a holistic and intuitive massage training and developed my photography skills.

From this new beginning my diverse experiences slowly guided me towards my heart purpose: I support women and holistic entrepreneur to deeply connect with their heart, to embrace their true self, to express their essence and shine through their sacred feminine-masculine energy.

To make my vision happen, I hold a space surrounded by mother earth where I use movement, body work and photography as transformative tools to support women’s journey. I aim to show how unique, radiant, and powerful all women are beneath our societal layers. My mission is to support women to stand in their power and embrace their bodies but also their multiples energies and archetypes.

“Photo is a powerful healing tool to share emotions, express your deep self  and connect with your energy”

Your sacred words

You don’t work with people like Elina every day. She is very special: one of the most intuitive, flowing, soulful people I have ever met. I’ve worked with many photographers and Elina has been by far the best. She captures my soul like nobody else and the way she blends movement and massage into her work makes gives her a very special, unique package.”

” I felt very honored and happy to put myself in Elina´s hands. What a day. Elina has this power of taking you on a journey within through different practices with such a calm, peacefull and clear energy. I was amazed by her capacity to tune in and speak words that goes straight to the heart. Her very gentle, soft and feminine energy create a safe and sacred bubble. We started with a meditation in the forest, followed by a photoshoot and closed with such a good body massage. Her intention to hold a space for me to reveal myself far from all the inner critical dialogue was so tangible and precious, especially during the photoshoot that was not so easy for me at the beginning. It was a first for me in front of the camera in this context, and what a blessing to feel that I could let go and trust her and her delicate guidance. Thank you Elina for seing me the way you do, for your words, your golden hands, your impressive maturity and wisdom. This day with you was a gift”

” I’ve worked with a lot of photographers over the years in my business, and the experience Elina provides is truly something special. She has an incredibly soft, beautiful spirit and from start to finish is so thoughtful and intentional in her approach both as an artist and as a human co-creating a shared experience. I felt truly seen by her on a core soul level, and was so moved to see how the final pictures really reflected that. I absolutely loved working with Elina and hope this shoot was our first of many!”

” I had the intention to express myself in a new way, show my internal growth on the outside. Elina has the ability make you feel naturally yourself in front of the camera. We connected before the session via a zoom call, and it was so heart-warming. Elina showed me a side I have never seen before, and I am very proud to show myself in such a beautiful sensual and feminine format. Her view on people is different and she catches special moments, different shades, and facets of your personality. I am blown away by the results and crying excited to show the world my new identity. If you are ready to receive raw authentic pictures, Elina is master of intuitive camera shoots. Thank you beautiful one, you really touched me. “

“Dear Elina, thank you so much for the photo shooting and the pictures! I just love them! I am so glad that we did this spontaneous shooting in the wild, it was so full of magic and love. It felt super easy and natural – it was so helpful that you were moving, dancing and breathing along with me to stay connected both with ourselves and to one another. The pictures really reflect this beautiful atmosphere and myself in a very honest way. “

“Elina was a blessing for our Retreat – working with her felt safe, effortless and comfortable. She contacted us via a post on Facebook and kindly offered a cooperation, and her energy perfectly aligned with the purpose of our Women Retreat. She was very open and flexible with our agreement which made it easy to find a way which worked for all of us. During the retreat she brought in a calm and nurturing energy. With a very subtle approach she has captured beautiful moments throughout the days, being in the background and giving a lot of space making sure to keep the right balance between taking photos and letting us be. No doubt Elina has a great eye for the right moments to capture and an eye for detail which I could clearly see in the results. I‘m so happy with her work and her beautiful presence at our Retreat! Opening the folder with the photos was such a beautiful surprise and I can’t recommend working together with Elina enough!”

The experiences can happen in the lushing nature of Monchique but I can also travel to your nature in the Algarve region (Aljezur, Portimao, Lagos, Sagres areas). I have also some dates available in France (Rhone-Alpes region).

I am looking forward to connect with you,
