St. Louis metro area photographer located in Collinsville, IL - Let my passion for photography capture your unforgettable moment in time!



Welcome to Elite Images!  My name is Michele Cerna - I hope one day to meet you and work with you on capturing some memories you will cherish for a lifetime.  Everyone asks: 'What is your style", and I simply say - 'YOURS'!!!  I love all aspects of photography and whether you are looking for a professional 'posed' portrait or spur of the moment photojournalistic images - I'll be there to capture exactly what you're looking for (and everything in between as well)!!  I have a passion for finding all the little giggles, smiles, and natural moments that occur during a photo session.  I love seeing a person's individual style that makes them unique, so I like my sessions to be fun and easy going with lots of variations.

My Studio is located in my home.  This not only gives me the opportunity to offer more convenient weekend and evening hours to you, but saves me in overhead costs.  This savings allows me to offer the same professional products as other professional photographer, but at a fraction of the cost!! 

My backyard has lots of trees, landscaping, and a pond.  I am also only a few block away from a local park for more options without having to travel far.  For those wanting diversity, I am happy to travel to St. Louis areas and I'm always looking for new 'fresh' places to take photos!
