~  Storytelling photography for modern families ~

Welcome to my website. My name is Ellie and I am photographer behind Dandelion Photography based in Cheshire, UK.

I am known for my family, newborn and commercial photography incorporating the beauty of the British landscape. I love to create soulful and storytelling images and teaching photography to parents - both to capture those moments of childhood that are oh so fleeting. With a marketing background, I can manage your commercial or branding photography and detaiIed look forward to working with you soon, with capturing your family, commercial photography or on one of my photography courses.





I am based in Bollington, Cheshire but work with families all across Cheshire, Manchester and Derbyshire. 

I love to incorporate a sense of place in my photography - both the stunning rugged beauty of the nearby Peak District and many beautiful locations in towns and villages of Northwest England. 

Ellie was so fun and enthusiastic - I couldn’t have asked for a kinder, more professional person. The whole shoot was filled with laughter which was down to Ellie’s wonderful manner, and made our photos all the more special.... Thank you!
