About E.L.A.


My name is Elia L. Alamillo and I am a professional portrait and documentary photographer located in Chicago.


Since I was a child, I have had the creativity and passion for photography and have since been able to develop and hone in on my talent and skill. As an independent photographer, I have been able to work with a variety of clients; from families to teenagers, children to adults, shooting both in the studio, live events and on location. I am dependable and reliable, always thinking about the image outcome while putting my clients and my subjects at ease.


When I photograph, I allow for the people to make the photographs and have developed my eye to catch the moment. I love what I do and especially love meeting new people.

I enjoy the process of photography; from planning sessions to editing the photos to delivering the final product to my clients.


As an insured professional photographer with over 10 years experience and BFA in photography from Columbia College Chicago, I have been able to develop my artistic vision while adding my unique style to the the images I capture.


Besides photography as my main profession. I am an after school art teacher. I love teaching my K-2nd graders about painting/drawing and recycled art crafting. 

I also love coffee, wine, doing my nails, doggies and my husband. He's my number one partner and often assists me as second shooter. He is a great photographer himself to check out some of his work is on Instagram @ricochingas
