My name is Liz and I am so glad you’re here. I am an award winning photographer and educator from Northern California. I love to travel and explore beautiful places and am forever living for those perfect 15 minutes right before and after the sun dips below the horizon. I chase those moments whether I am capturing my own memories with my two little boys or creating magic with my clients. 

"To see people as they are, as they imagine themselves, as they wish to be. To be witness, the friend, the judge, the accomplice. To record their moment."
-Annie Leibovitz

Meet Me

Hello! I am so excited that you are here! Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am addicted to coffee, style and travel, and an artist at heart – a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley with a BA in Fine Art who decided after I had my first baby that I was totally inspired by capturing their sweet faces. It is one of my greatest joys to capture memories of them as they are growing up, and I would love to help you capture meaningful memories for your own family as well. Since memories are often emotional, authentic moments, I strive to create moments with your loved ones, families, and newborns that are both artistically beautiful and memories that you can share for a lifetime. I can’t wait to help you find the beauty and the joy in authentic moments captured with your family the same way that I capture them with mine.

"Editing is where I seek to bring to life the moment that I remember with my mind's eye - it's beauty, it's authenticity, the way it makes me feel."

"Liz’s heart, and her vision of a truly beautiful world, and incredible artistic gifts, shine through every photograph she shares. How she captures the emotion she does, that tell a thousand unspoken stories in the moments she witnesses, is possibly one of the greatest gifts of all."
- Jeni Guth

All of life is a journey. A journey to find the people, things, and moments that inspire you and finding the passion it takes to work hard to prioritize those things that matter the most to you. My desire for you is that you would find the things that bring you joy and pursue them with all your heart. And if that pursuit includes finding the best version of yourself as a photographer and artist, then I will be there to support you through that journey with everything I have!

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
