Ellen Senisi

Author Bio

Ellen Senisi is an author and photographer of children’s photo-essay picture books. Ellen has great fun creating media about children — books, apps, photos, multimedia video — for kids and for education publishers. She published her first book with Scholastic in 1993, Brothers and Sisters— and it is still in print! Since then, she has used words and photographs to create photo-essay books that introduce children to everything from nature, to disabilities, to Chinese culture, to the Apollo Theater.

Ellen enjoys sharing her work with children in school visits. Her most requested programs include teaching photography, character education, and how a book is created.
