So, if you know me, you know that winter is not my jam. I much prefer to snuggle up inside next to the fireplace with my book, my pup, and my cup of hot, yummy coffee than do *anything* outside in the winter. I was not build for the cold and I have accepted that […]

One of the most frequent client requests I get is for garden maternity photos. It makes total sense, too. What better way to show off a body in bloom than surrounded by a garden in bloom (I’m sorry, I know it’s punny, I had to). But truly, I can always tell when spring is around […]

I’m going to talk about the gorgeous Christmas tree maternity photos I shot a week ago but first I need to get this off my chest. I went to Target today. Target used to be my place. It was a place I could count on to have what I needed every time I went. I […]

I adore in-home maternity photos and it’s a type of session that I’m doing more and more, especially considering that we’re going into the long, cold days of winter. Who wants to traipse around outside in a gorgeous, flowing dress while simultaneously freezing your bits to pieces?? Not me…even considering the fact that I get […]

Everyone likes a deal…I bet you can’t find one person who would rather pay full price for something when they could get a price break on it. And I know I’d rather establish a longer-term relationship with a client than photograph someone once and never see them again. So I took the knowledge that people […]

I love taking photos at Woodlawn Manor. I’m always guaranteed the trifecta of photography must-haves when I do a session there: great light, variety of locations, interesting textures that make the photos fun to look at. I’ve shot SO many sessions at Woodlawn that I know exactly when to go to which location on the […]

I’ve mentioned this before but did you know you can give a Liz Viernes Photography photo session as a gift? I’ve had people gift newborn sessions, baby sitter sessions, maternity sessions and engagement sessions! It really is the best way to bless someone because you are giving much more than a one hour or three […]

I CANNOT BELIEVE I HAVEN’T BLOGGED MY FRIEND CHRISSY’S MATERNITY SESSION FROM *LAST AUGUST*. Sorry for the screaming. It’s just that I was looking for her blog post to show a prospective client not only what to wear but also how beautiful Woodlawn Manor is…and I couldn’t find it. That’s when I realized I hadn’t […]

This message is for all the daddies out there. I’m a newborn photographer so I spend my fair share of time with brand new families who are experiencing all the highs (and, yes, the lows too) of bringing home a newborn. Some daddies are complete naturals – this is what they were born to do. […]

It’s a pretty perfect day, I gotta be honest. After a loooong, rainy April in a spring characterized by the Covid-19 quarantine and stay-at-home orders across the land, May has come in exactly how I prayed it would. I’m sitting on my bed with my laptop, windows wide open with my sheer curtains billowing in […]
