Hi, I'm Liz.
I am a mom, a career gal, and a photographer, living my best life here in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. I spend my 9-5 working as a quality manager, my weeknights with my hubby helping our kiddo with homework and sports, and my weekends looking through a lens. Oh, and I also teach kickboxing!
My journey to photography started when I was a kid. My dad loved film photography, and I grew up with a camera always pointed in my direction (the home videos are proof of my diva-personality as a child, something my sister and I laugh about to this day). Now I prefer to be behind the camera, capturing moments and memories for my beautiful clients. I started on my personal photography journey shooting friends and family. I took the plunge and began my part-time gig back in 2011, and since then have continued growing my skills and cultivating my art.
Let's talk photography style. It is super important to choose a photographer that matches your vision for your session. This way, your photographer is shooting in their element and you will get the images you envisioned. My shooting personality is pretty carefree and sometimes a little messy. I am not a huge believer in overly-posed portraits. There is always a place for the "mom pose", and I will work those into our sessions. However, I prefer movement and emotion in my images, capturing the interaction between my clients, not the interaction between them and my lens. When it comes to editing, my style leans towards clean, filmatic, and warm. I love the tones of browns, oranges, reds, and yellows, and you will see a lot of that in my portfolio. I also shoot both digital and analogue in most sessions (analogue=film). For more of that part of my journey, check out some of my personal work and blog.
So, if we sound like a match, let's get together (over some coffee, of course). I would love to hear how I could make a memory for you!
Photo cred to my 9-year-old son for the photo to the left. I was shooting with my Pentax K1000 and he wanted to take a few pictures. He snapped this one of me, along with some trees and a bird. I was impressed he got a usable shot, considering the camera is completely manual, down to the focus ring on the lens. Good job kid!
