Hi, I'm Eliza!

I photograph babies, kiddos, and the tall people who take care of them. I'm a stay-at-home mama to two little girls and a fluffy wheaten terrier dog who we all adore. Since becoming a mom, my passion for photography has grown into a fun, part-time business! Once my kids are older, I plan to return to work as a marriage and family therapist while continuing photography.

 

Born and raised in the midwest, I met my husband in college in the pacific northwest. We've lived in Illinois, Oregon, Michigan, and now the central coast of California! We're so grateful to put our roots down here and call San Luis Obispo home.

My life motto is "don't sweat the small stuff because it's all small stuff" and my parenthood motto is "but first, coffee."

 

On most days, you can find me exploring the outdoors living an extraordinary, ordinary life.

California's Central Coast Family Photographer

Easy going and fun! I always try to create natural moments that elicit genuine connection and emotion. I love neutral tones, soft color palettes, and golden light.
