Liz Putnam


A photographer since the 90s, in business since 2015.

A social introvert, I love learning about my clients and their families during my sessions! Minecraft, engineering, schools, gardening, favorite restaurants, we cover it all. I might treasure my downtime and quiet in my garden/on the trail/knitting, but I also enjoy meeting new faces and putting them at ease!

(Secret fact: I get nervous when having my photo taken, so my last set of family photos is from 2019! My goal is to change that in 2024, but…famous last words.)

My Signature Style

Beautiful Light

Always on the lookout for pretty light, I will schedule your session for the perfect time for your family.

Texture and Layers

Texture and layers are my favorite, and I have my favorite spots that will deliver every time.


While I promise I’ll tell you what to do with your hands, my sessions aren’t forced or overly posed.

Liz is just magic. She is so warm and easy-going and immediately makes the whole family feel at ease. My husband *hates* getting his photos taken, and he has said, “wow that was so much fun!”… if you’re looking for not only someone who will provide you with gorgeous, timeless photos but also someone who will warm your heart – look no further!”

Family laughing and hugging at Curt Gowdy State Park.

“Liz was PHENOMENAL!! Not only did she take amazing portraits and candid photos of our family of four, she really knew how to have fun with us and our two young kids. The moments that were captured are stunning!!”

“He wants to gift this [extended family session] to his mom for her birthday. A man who hates photos, but you impressed him this fall with your work and quickness this fall! Not an easy task, but we really appreciated you.”

More Facts about Me

We have three daughters! My oldest is headed to high school, and my twins will be in 6th grade this fall.

I’m married to the wildland firefighter on the left, and this photo is from our first summer working together (2005). Public lands forever!

Cats. Always cats. I’m totally fine and happy with dogs (even the jumpy ones!), but cats are really what makes my heart go pitter patter.
