Photography is the art of capturing expressions and telling stories in an image. It is the perfect medium for a naturally curious, high-energy individual. Mary Liz embraces photography as an extension of that personality and that outlook on life. “I have been walking around with a camera since high school telling my stories. The camera has been a perfect medium for me to express myself and to capture the light and beauty that surrounds us”. It has allowed me the freedom to quickly evaluate and assess my surroundings for the moment that speaks to me and allows me to capture that image. I am constantly composing images of the world around me and improving my skills as a visual storyteller. My goal is to transmit you to my world through my photos.
