HELLO - I’m Liz. Mabel made me a mama when I was 41. I worked in television in Los Angeles, worked as a photographer, traveled the world, traveled some more, and came home. I’ve learned so much and forgotten most of it these four years. I love being a mom but oh it’s hard. I’m a producer and video editor, and now behind the camera.
We live in Ojai, CA - just a few hours north of Los Angeles.
Little Movie Family Sessions
Little movies are effortless, designed to spend time with you in a way that is relaxed and authentic. I spend around 90 minutes with you, at your home and/or somewhere else. I’ll deliver a small series of photos, a 2-3 minute movie with natural audio of your family, and a shorter version for sharing.
You’ll receive a private link to your video, and a personal keepsake.
You begin this way:
this is your hand,
this is your eye,
that is a fish, blue and flat
on the paper, almost
the shape of an eye.
This is your mouth, this is an O
or a moon, whichever
you like. This is yellow.
Outside the window
is the rain, green
because it is summer, and beyond that
the trees and then the world,
which is round and has only
the colors of these nine crayons.
This is the world, which is fuller
and more difficult to learn than I have said.
You are right to smudge it that way
with the red and then
the orange: the world burns.
Once you have learned these words
you will learn that there are more
words than you can ever learn.
The word hand floats above your hand
like a small cloud over a lake.
The word hand anchors
your hand to this table,
your hand is a warm stone
I hold between two words.
This is your hand, these are my hands, this is the world,
which is round but not flat and has more colors
than we can see.
It begins, it has an end,
this is what you will
come back to, this is your hand.
