Hi! I'm Liz.
These days my life consists of the balancing act that is running my own business, raising girls, and spending quality time with my husband -- and I LOVE it! I’m inspired by new experiences: meeting new people, traveling to new destinations, and even the changing of the seasons. To compliment my love of change, I value simplicity and am constantly striving to reduce the "stuff" in my life.
When I'm not knee deep in running a business, I can be found on getaway weekend trips with my family (we love the beach in the off-season!), at the playground with my girls, meeting friends for coffee dates, and enjoying date nights with my husband. I still have moments when I can't believe I make a living by taking pictures of happy, beautiful people. I have one of the best jobs in the world and I’m so grateful.
I am an Artist and Professional Photographer with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design. I have a love for natural emotion and connection that can be seen and felt through my work. My passion is photographing love and the intimate connections found in relationships; between couples, parents and babies, and the family as a whole.
I began wedding photography in 2007 and later added birth and baby photography in 2013. I have photographed hundreds of weddings and over 50 births. I've studied photography through online and in person workshops throughout my career. My work has been published and featured in numerous professional publications and photography blogs. My brand speaks for itself in the pure, natural and organic style portrayed, as well as the custom experience I deliver to my clients.
