Hi, I'm Liz
& I'm so happy to be your custom photography provider! I want to capture your moments in a way that reminds you, years from now, that you are exactly as you are: beautiful, bright, and filled with life. Thank you so much for sharing your lives and your hearts with me!
I love making art, whether it's a photograph, poem, painting, or song. I also love taking care of children, as a professional nanny with over 15 years of childcare experience.
When I'm not behind the lens, you might find me out on the town, or traveling to visit family across North Carolina or friends across the world -- my fiancé Nathen was born & raised in Australia!
I love thrift store shopping, herbal tea, and the local art & music community. I moved to Winston-Salem in 2006, with every intention of it being a stopover to NYC, and fell in love with this city and its charm. It's my New York in North Carolina!
...but what IS custom photography?
In four words: you are worth more. You're worth more than sitting in a crowded waiting room. You're worth more than settling for the cheap special of the month. You're worth more than your name being forgotten, as soon as you walk out of a big company's studio. You're worth more than mass production. You are unique, and amazing, and your memories are worth honoring. I realize your worth, and it's why I strive to provide quality products and service, in a way that makes your life easier.
Custom photography IS that process. It's getting to know you, every step of the way, from our first interaction until the moment you receive your beautiful final product (and beyond). I will listen to your wants and needs, and help you shape your session to meet them. I will help to tell the story of just who you are, at this moment in your life, so that you may retell it over and over for years to come.
Celebrate yourself, your life, your memories. You are completely worth it!
Why I love to photograph...
I bring many years experience in handling newborns, as a nanny, into the studio as a newborn photographer. I'm positively passionate about these new little humans, and love documenting the tiny details during their first ten days of life.
Growing up as part of a very large extended family (I visit 2-4 households on Christmas Eve and Day, every year), I know the value of capturing not just beautiful portraits, but everyday moments between people who love one another.
I truly enjoy children of all ages, and connect with them in a fun, pressure-free way. You'll often find me with my knees in the dirt, talking one-on-one with my young clients about whatever fascinates them (this week).
I love your love, and want to celebrate it alongside you on one of the most memorable days of your life! I use a combination of photographic styles to create the full picture of your wedding day, from your dressing process to the very last dance of the evening.
