Greetings from Portland, Oregon

Hello! I’m Elayna, a visual journalist curious about stories that explore culture, connection to community, relationships, and social issues.

My passion for learning about and working with people from diverse backgrounds has led me to pursue educational and professional opportunities around the world – from Tanzania to Turkey to Haiti to Bolivia. I love working with organizations and individuals to tell meaningful stories that evoke empathy and inspire change.

I am available for photography and multimedia assignments or collaborations in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
