Cover photographer for Monterey Bay Parent Magazine
Carmel storyteller

Documenting your love journey since 2012


Hello! I am a Mexico City native, mom of two boys, and I have been married to the love of my life (with whom I eloped) for 15 years.

Photography has been a part of my life since 2008, when I debuted professionally with a series of photojournalistic pieces that were featured in a Hispanic publication. (See my underwater and traveling photography from the time, here). 

In 2012, my husband and I settled down to start a family in Santa Cruz CA, where Tatiana Scher Photography, formerly known as Little Darling Photo was born…

What makes my work stand out?

To me, a camera is only one of the tools available to capture a story.

All my work inspired by my clients’ needs. I provide a thorough location guide for the Monterey Bay (from Moss Landing to Big Sur) and Santa Cruz areas and I am constantly in the look for more unique spots.

Ellen Scher is a New York native who traveled to CA in a VW bus with her husband and daughter in 1979 … and never left. She enjoys all the things Monterey Bay offers her: spending time with her kids and grandkids, gardening, and relaxing on the beach. But she still prefers east coast pizza and bagels. Ellen is a romantic at heart who loves officiating weddings to make sure the new chapter of her couple’s love stories start off perfect.
