My name is Bonita Elias and I am a member of PPA and IFPO American News Press. But to me credentials mean nothing unless you enjoy what you do when it comes to creating. I love creating a beautiful photography experience for women who wish to feel pampered and cherished. I do this thru my camera lens and shoot luxury glamour portraits, lifestyle portraits, weddings and boudoir. Since I shoot photography for women, I know how important creating beautiful images can be for that important day. Photography has always provided a creative outlet for me to help see the world and capture that moment in time that truly matters. I will often do creative sessions that have nothing to do with my specialties. Look out Food Recipe World! I love being a Cleveland Glamour & Boudoir Photographer and also shoot Glamour & Boudoir in Washington DC DMV, Tampa Bay, Buffalo and Pittsburgh for customized Glamour & Boudoir Photography.
I meet amazing women from all different backgrounds and we have a wonderful time during the photography session. We enjoy music, refreshments, makeup, conversations, laughter and fun. At the end of the session, I want the women who spend time with me to feel as if they have had the time of their life and that they were treated like a Goddess for the day and spent time with new friends. I call my boudoir experience the Goddess Empowerment.
I became very interested in photography at a very young age, but didn't really focus my creative energies into photography until I discovered I did not have a lot of photographic memories of my wonderful Mom & Dad who have passed on. I now create in the hopes that I am providing generations of memories for friends and families for their loved ones.
I have a quirky sense of humor, love fashion, make-up and perfume and I love to travel too. BTW, I have a motto! When God gives you lemons, make lemon drop martinis!
