I love shooting in home newborn photos. I have traveled as far north as Harford County, MD, as far south as Loudoun County, VA, and as far east as Wicomico County, MD. (Disclaimer: I far prefer to stay within about 25 miles of Burtonsville, MD – these far-flung destinations aren’t my norm). I’ve been in […]

When a client says “I trust you”, it can be both a blessing and a curse – which sounds weird, I get it. This past week, a client said those very words to me: “I trust you.” Full, honest transparency? In this case it was a curse. I’ll talk about the blessings a little bit, […]

It’s very sobering when real life kicks in, especially when you’ve worked so hard to prevent it from getting the upper hand. Covid has been part of our lives for almost two years now and I’ve felt invincible against it for practically that whole time. When Covid hit our house the week before Thanksgiving, it […]

So, you’ve decided to book a photo session with Liz Viernes Photography and one of the questions you have for me is “What are your favorite photoshoot locations?” Well, I’m glad you asked! One of the decisions we have to make before your session date is where we’re going to meet and it’s a really […]

I did these beautiful at home newborn photos just a few short weeks after meeting Jackie and Ryan for the first time. Jackie had arranged maternity photos with another photographer but those had fallen through. She found me and we quickly pulled together an in-home maternity session because their home is stunning, light-filled and just […]

I love my job as one of Maryland’s maternity and newborn photographers. I take pride in being able to offer posed (in my studio) and lifestyle (in your home) newborn photos. Offering both options allows parents to choose the style that best fits the memories they want to have of their newborn baby. It is […]

The beautiful thing about having been in business for almost 4 years and having lots of content to share on my blog and social media is that, when people seek me out for photography, they generally know what they’re going to get. I’m a light and airy photographer so I strive to produce images that […]

I’m sitting here on a rainy afternoon thinking about baby Hadley and her parents, who I met at the beginning of December. This story actually began this past fall when Cameron, a labor and delivery nurse in Virginia, was considering learning newborn photography. As a night shift worker, the hours can loom long and unforgiving […]

Ok. Let’s all address the elephant in the room. Photos with a toddler can be challenging. Let me list the reasons: Toddlers are opinionated. Toddlers require a LOT for their own happiness (and also nothing – see toddler ignoring the expensive toy in favor of the box…but I digress) Toddlers need an endless supply of […]

Isn’t it interesting how things come about? Since starting my photography business in 2017 and then deciding to specialize in maternity, newborn and first year milestones last year, I have worked very hard on honing my style and putting out into the world what I want to attract back. If I wanted to photograph vibrant […]
