Kia Ora - hello! I'm Liz, a documentary wedding and family photographer based in beautiful Christchurch, New Zealand. I grew up in sunny Sydney, Australia, and all of my extended family are there, but my husband and I, along with our 4 kids, have called New Zealand home for the past decade. I have loved photography for as long as I can remember, receiving my first film camera as an 8-year old I grew up behind the lens, but my greatest love is people. People are simply fascinating! Being a sociology student also helped to foster my love for the uniqueness of the human spirit and to hone my observation skills. I am passionate about telling personal stories through photography as a medium, there is so much depth that can be seen and felt through a simple gesture or a facial expression that words alone could never express. I love working with all types of kids and families, having been a parent since 2005, there's nothing I haven't seen before! I also love to work with special needs families to tell your beautiful stories too. In 2019 I was showcased at the Elevate and Grow photography exhibition in Austin, Texas. I love to travel so please get in touch even if you are outside New Zealand. I visit Australia frequently and I have family and friends in all states so I'm happy to travel anywhere. I'm so looking forward to connecting with you, let's grab a virtual (or real) coffee and chat.
I can communicate in French and NZSL (New Zealand Sign Language) also - which shares similarities with BSL and Auslan. If you are deaf and interested in booking with me I would love to connect with you via Glide or Zoom.
