From the small twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago to the sandy, sun soaked shores of Fort Lauderdale, the career of photographer and educator Lena Isely has led her on assignment to many wonderful places including Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Vail, Toronto, Barbados, Grenada, Puerto Rico and Trinidad and Tobago. Lena believes in simple, heartfelt and powerful images. Her easy, unstudied style produces photographs that reflect a love and passion for what she does. Lena’s “at ease” approach, vibrant energy and love of life allows her to reach inside her subjects to find what makes each person unique and interesting. She recognizes the essential beauty in everything she sees and effortlessly captures those special moments that take our breath away. The result is great portraits and delightful candids that go straight to the heart. Lena has what you can’t teach. The warmth of her island upbringing has lent itself to an open affect that makes you want to be her friend and her reassuring demeanor makes you feel like you already are. Her love and empathy for people makes her a powerful visual storyteller, creating imagery that is timeless, soulful and heartfelt. Lena remarks “Photography is the perfect blend of science and art that allows me to capture images with my heart. My imagery is shaped by the power of human connections, of love, of passion, and of family. Images aren’t anything unless they are real, organic, truthful and natural. Capturing people being themselves, doing what they love best with those they cherish most…now that’s powerful.” There is great honor in being chosen to be the timekeeper and guardian of someone’s memories…a task not taken lightly. Based in South Florida and traveling to all destinations, Lena specializes in people and lifestyle photography with a focus on all special events including Weddings, Bat Mitzvahs, Quinces, Corporate and Executive PR, Head Shots, Portraits, Architecture, Food and more.
