I began my photography journey in college as I studied it in school and have connected with many amazing souls since.

Photography has allowed me to connect with God on such a deep level and constantly helps me fall back in love with life – and I just want to give other passionate and adventurous women the same opportunity. I believe photos hold so much weight...they tell a story, and I want to tell yours.

hi friends, i'm Liz.


For me, faith comes first. It's what gets me out of bed every morning and fuels me to create a beautiful life, and in turn - the beautiful images I create and capture. I aim to inspire others to

from the every day hustle and bustle to be truly present and connect with this beautiful planet we live on, and the creator of it all.

EMP Values

I want to take the stress and overwhelm that often comes with planning a photoshoot away and instead, give you one of the most memorable experiences you will cherish for the rest of your life.

Trading "photoshoot" for "adventure"


Yes, I'm a Jesus-loving free-spirit. Many people might think that's an oxymoron, but I'm here to show you that real freedom lies at the feet of our savior, and my purpose is to empower you to feel even an ounce of that freedom, love, and alignment.

My purpose is encouraging you to feel free and full of faith


If you're anything like me, then your mind runs a mile a minute ALL.THE.TIME. While it's a blessing to be able to have a visionary mind, it can get exhausting. So my mission is to allow you to truly be present and embrace the moment. 

Helping you embrace the moment

God's creations

remaining grounded


I'm committed to making true connections with fellow adventurous souls who aren't afraid to go after what they love and believe in. I thrive in the outdoors, especially if a hike in a beautiful natural park is involved and I work best with people who aren't afraid to get their feet wet.

I believe my purpose is to build people up to revel in the blessings God has placed in their lives.

I'm not your average photographer
