about elizabeth

Hello there!  I am a portrait photographer and truly love what I do – I make art by documenting people.  My style is a mix of photo-journalistic, creative and traditional – I enjoy capturing candid moments along with slowing down to focus on meaningful details and stunning portraits.

I hold an MFA in photography which gave me a formal education in both the technique and history of photography. Some of my photo heroes include  Sally Mann, Francesca Woodman, Nan Goldin, Alec Soth, Tina Barney and more (check out my Fine Art Fridays to learn more about contemporary photographers and other things that inspire me).

In addition to photography, I enjoy jogs around Fresh Pond, indie movies, novels I picked up from Porter Square Books, drinking wine, following the local real estate market, playing tennis (if my back allows it), and spending lots of time with my family.  I’m also a recent Instagram addict!

Please browse through my blog and portfolio to get a sense of my style.  If you like what you see, I encourage you to contact me to set up a consultation.  You can email me or fill out my contact form.  I work out of my studio boutique located in the heart of Huron Village, Cambridge.

Elizabeth, a native of the Boston area, was introduced to photography in high school at Noble and Greenough and immediately caught the “bug” and went on to graduate with a the Bramhall-Bridge Purchase Award in Art.  She graduated Cum Laude with a BA Thesis in Fine Art at Amherst College and completed her MFA at the School of Visual Arts in 2010.  While in graduate school, she began her thesis project, Libert & Company, which documents her own family.  Photographs from Libert & Company have been exhibited in group shows nationally, including at the Michael Foley Gallery in New York City and Boston University’s Photographic Resource Center.  Her first solo show was in 2012 at NESOP (New England School of Photography) in Boston.

Elizabeth was named one of Boston’s Best Family Photographers by CBS Boston, a Photo District News Annual Student Winner, and a Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward Emerging Photographer.  She was recently a guest on NECN’s Morning Show, and her work has been featured in blogs such as the New Yorker Photobooth, Little Bellows, Style Me Pretty, Light Inspired, Hey Hot Shot!, Lenscratch, and LPV Magazine, and will be published in Peter Hay Halbert’s upcoming book, Identities Now – Contemporary Portraiture in Photography.  Elizabeth is a member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP), Boston Mamas, the Magic Hour Foundation and the Tiny Sparrow Foundation.
