Hi! I'm Liz catrina.

I became beyond blessed the day a friend saw a few pictures I took of my sister and wanted hers done. That friend posted hers and 14 years later this is still my full time career. Always loving art and receiving a degree in Graphic Design, photography felt instantly natural and quickly became a way to fuse those passions together. Since that fall when I was practically clueless on how to use a camera I have since taken many classes, taught countless seminars and led photography classes at the local Junior College. It's been flattering have pictures published in numerous publications. All the while building relationships and friendships with clients and amazing people I would have never met have been the driving force to my continued pursuit to keep my photographs timeless and of the highest caliber. I am a free-spirited person that loves to capture the relationship, the moment and that unspeakable feeling. I want every single picture you receive from me to be frame worthy and evoke a feeling when you at it. It is an honor and sacred privilege each time you are in front of my lens and I hope to surpass your expectation.

A few other things... I'm crazy about the 5 people in this picture. My 4 kids (adults now) and husband Dan. We got married on 4.16.22. You could also call me a "meathead yogi". I love lifting some weights and my other passion is yoga. I'd choose camping over a Ritz Carlton and a good burger over a fancy steak. I'm a simple gal that loves light, nature and quality connections with good people. Can't wait to connect.

This option is endless and the location can often determine the "feel" of the shoot. Do you want an edgy downtown vibe, boho by the river, classic in San Francisco or an ethereal feel by the ocean? Do you have a ranch or location special to you?
