lifestyle portrait photographer, Barbara Liszcz

"As a lifestyle portrait photographer, I am continuously seeking out new relationships, and strengthening the established ones.  I believe in the beauty of each individual, and the interactions, the connections they form through their own design, and the design of the ultimate maker.  Your story deserves to be told.  Your history, your lifelong documentation deserves high-quality images that will stand the test of time.  Developing a sense of trust with your photographer is a crucial element in this process.  That's why my mantra is to make and maintain personal connections throughout each and every interaction.  At the end of the day, when you look at your photos, and are reminded of the celebration in front of the lens, of preserving timeless, precious memories with utmost pride and joy than I know I've helped to make the world a better place, one click at a time."  

Photography sessions with Barb are filled with laughter, joyous surprises, some silliness, oodles of warmth and connection, plus, big smiles (no "cheese" required!). A sense of wonder, adventure and fun while maintaining an open heart is what Barbara strives for throughout each session.  She believes that her life experiences, her teaching degree and experience with children, and long-established background in the arts and design help her to best serve her client-friends with lifestyle photography.

Teaching and organizing photography workshops are another area of focus Barbara continually builds upon.  Passing along the basic skills needed in order to empower others to gain confidence in their own photography makes for a kinder, more competent world.  She is a mentor who jumps into all of her projects with a heart wide open to the needs of others.  Barb seeks out collaboration projects and opportunities to work with other creatives.  

Barbara and her husband are the proud parents of 3 beautiful, energetic, creative girls. She adores organic gardening, the great outdoors, hiking, camping, travel, painting, creating art, and her friends and family. She is a life-long learner and a degree-certified teacher. Having a curious nature, she enjoys meeting new people and experiencing new places. She blogs, and is a published writer. She believes firmly in listening to her heart, her intuition and her spiritual relationship with God. Her most inspiring fortune cookie, ever, foretold: 'Be Brave Enough to Live a Creative Life.' And, with each new day, she finds hope to continue to do so...
