"Photographs can speak stories the way words cannot, to help us remember those life moments or smiles that we treasure within us. Looking at an old photograph becomes a treasure for our soul and mind. I feel bless to have the opportunity to give families that gift. That old picture helps us to reflect about what we live for." -Liz

Capturing the connections with loved ones

Capturing the connections with loved ones

Hi there! I’m Liz…

Background and Career Journey:

I was raised in Greeley, CO, and have since lived in several different regions, including Mexico, Maryland, and California. I attended at the College of Maryland to become a cardiologist technician, when I moved to California  that's where I found my true calling in photography.

I’m a mom, wife, sister, friend and a natural light photographer who has a passion for photography! I started my photography busniess in my hometown of Greeley, CO. I would have never guessed that following my passion would lead me to start my own photography business, but I cannot express how happy and excited I am to be here.

I am a freelancer that from the moment I picked up my first DSLR, I felt excited and I was eager to learn and develop my skills. So, for a while there I slept and breathed photography until I got the guts to actually go out and find me some models to help me practice (my beautiful nieces and cousin). That is when the fire kicked in and I decided it was time to turn my intense love and passion for photography into a career.


In the beginning of the shoot I will have poses for you. Once I see that everyone has warmed up with each other or me shooting them. I’ll just simply guide you and prompt you to interact with each other so I can capture you being your true selves. I will have you cuddle, kiss, hold hands, laugh and will let your little one run wild! We all want authentic memories. Let’s make it happen. 


Schedule your next photo shoot with Liz.


I’m also involved in the real estate world. My husband and many good friends of ours are Realtors. So, I have invested in equipment for real estate photography. I have been shooting properties since 2015. I have the lens, the lighting the drone. Do you need an actual video walk through of your home? I can do that too! If you are someone you know needs their properties photographed contact me today!
