let's get to know each other

Hello, I'm Liza.

I am a Newborn, Baby, and Family Photographer in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Since before I can remember, I've always loved the arts- music, watercolors, theater, ballet. After my first baby was born almost a decade ago, photography took center stage in my heart. I love that with an artist's eye and a drive to find the good in any situation, my camera and I are a team that takes ordinary moments and elevates them into special memories.

I believe that a good photograph distills and simplifies- it celebrates and magnifies life's many blessings and beauties. It finds- and sometimes it creates- the flower in the weeds, the diamond in the rough. 

I hold a Master's Degree in Special Education, and my background as an elementary school teacher helped me to develop a level of calm, peaceful patience that's needed when working with sweet newborn babes. 


As a proud mother to three beautiful children of my own, you can feel comfortable trusting your most precious one in my gentle and experienced arms. 

My photography style is clean and timeless, with true-to-life colors and simple, classic compositions. 

My home is decorated with many beautiful portraits of my own family. These frames, albums, and keepsake boxes contain my most precious memories, and they bring me joy every day. I love decorating for the seasons, and my favorite part of that is moving my favorite pictures around, switching out what I display and remembering favorite family moments. 

I want that for you, too.

When you choose to work with me, we will plan your perfect session together. I'll listen to what you want, and guide you where you need help. Your session will be easy and stress-free.  In addition to creating beautiful photographs, together we can design keepsakes that complement your home and your unique style. 


I love what I do, and I'm looking forward to meeting you and serving your family well. 



my life verse

Whatever is true,

whatever is noble,

whatever is right,

whatever is pure,

whatever is lovely,

whatever is admirable—

if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—

think about such things.

Love Notes From My Clients
1 / 3


We had a fantastic experience with Liza. My newborn was fussy and uncooperative throughout much of the shoot but she was incredibly patient, kind, and professional. She has quite a few tricks up her sleeve when dealing with babies! She somehow managed to get some amazing shots that far surpassed my expectations! I highly recommend her to anyone.

Your wedding is all about you, your family and dear friends. Be your true self. Show your fun, quirky personality. Do the things that make you happy. Laugh loudly. Kiss slowly. Hug tightly.

I'll be there to capture it all and help you save these beautiful memories for a lifetime.
