I want to capture you and your family as you are. The nitty, gritty, love, laughter, and connection that makes you a family. My job is to make you look natural and organic, not stiff, awkward, and staged. I want to capture the beautiful moments that would happen regardless of whether or not I was there. Photographs of your family should be around for years to come to remind you of who and what your family was at each moment in time.
Dance needs no instrument other than your own body. It's beautiful, powerful, graceful, and lends itself quite well to the art of photography. I can use my own passion and knowledge of dance to help guide, correct, and collaborate to get the most from a session. Whether working with a dance studio on recital photos, getting promotional shots for studios and events, or creating fine art with my Dance Project, I want to capture our mutual love of dance.

Relationships are such an exciting, romantic, and passionate. I want to capture these aspects of you with your partner.
I photograph the emotional, magical, intense moments of your birthing experience (to match your comfort level), your newborn, and your growing baby.
"Liana was so much more than a birthing photographer to us....she was an amazing blessing and support to my family during what turned out to be a very scary birth. Because things took such an unexpected turn that put my life in serious jeopardy, we wouldn't have any pictures at all of the first hours of my sons life, were it not for Liana. And not only did she continue snapping away through the chaos, taking AMAZING photos, she was a rock to my family when they needed it most. It has been so much fun meeting with her again and again through the months to take the milestone photos, and I cherish those photos so very much. My favorite pictures of my son were taken by Liana! She has such an eye for taking just the right shot and I am having so much fun watching my son grow up through Liana's lens! ~ Tara M.
