Hi, I’m Ellie Kay, and I’m here to help you change the way you see yourself.

People and their stories are my passion.


I’m a photographer, set designer, and artist who’s experienced the impact of negative body image. I know what it’s like to feel like you’re not at home in your own skin. I fully believe that a big part of radical self love is overcoming preconceived notions we have about ourselves.


So frequently, when we see ourselves, we see a warped vision. Our perception of self is distorted when one of our only vantage points is a poorly lit bathroom mirror.


I love helping people see themselves the way the people who love them do.


As a child I loved playing dress up and that didn’t change as I got older. Now, I love recapturing that fun with the people I photograph. My favorite part of the experience is the image reveal. It’s beyond magical to watch someone, sometimes for the first time, fall in love with themselves. Seeing yourself the way other people do can change the way you move through life. 


Let’s change your perspective.


XOXO Ellie Kay

"It’s a surreal experience to be able to see yourself as pretty or as beautiful as others see you. These wonderful ladies know what will make you look and feel your best. They’ll consult with each other (and you) to make sure that things are looking perf. Allow yourself to see yourself through another’s eyes because oftentimes they are kinder to you than you are to yourself. This is truly just a wonderful and wholesome experience."

"I have struggled with body dysmorphia most of my life, mainly about my arms, stomach, and legs. I was nervous, but it was a more relaxed and comfortable environment than I expected! My advice: DO IT. You deserve to be celebrated for your creative vision and adore your body! You are your own limits, whatever your desired theme and vision is what you can do! No one will judge you or make you do anything you aren’t comfortable with"

"I wanted to celebrate my last year in my 30s and celebrate who I am. I loved every moment of it. Ellie is a whole vibe and she made it an amazing experience. I was surprised by how easy it was for Ellie to make the vision I had come alive. It’s the most amazing and beautiful experience. You walk away with so much love and appreciation for your body."
