My name is Elana. I’m a Utah native currently living in Hawaii. I’m a photographer, blogger + educator who recently made the jump across the ocean to pursue a more intentional + inspired life. I have an infinite love for the outdoors, beautiful photographs, interesting conversations + experiencing new places. Most days you can find me with wild hair, camera or laptop in hand, probably talking about something that I’m passionate + opinionated about. I thrive off adventure, fresh cocos, new faces and storytelling. I can rap almost any song from the mid-90s on, have BIG, lofty dreams and find immense joy encouraging others in accomplishing theirs. I decided a few years ago to meld my social nature, love for photography + degree in marketing to pursue a freeing career that I LOVE.
My background in photography + marketing, mixed with my love of being social, turned my career path in the direction of social media consulting, online marketing education and content creation. I work with small businesses to better communicate their mission, value and aesthetic to their ideal clients. It’s my biggest dream come true to get to use my imagination each day, get creative + work alongside vibrant entrepreneurs every single day. My heart lies in making authentic relationships, inspiring genuine connections & learning about this world from varied perspectives.
Here, on elanaloo.com, is where I document it all along the way. I share my heart, my adventures + my travels. From the very beginning, this space has served as an open conversation where I can tangibly use my imagination, share tidbits I learn + love and connect with you. It’s so nice to meet you + I hope to get to you know a bit better!
