drumlin farm has a volunteer program that put our studio to work weeding the cabbage crops and harvesting red gold potatoes earlier this week. our guides, calyb & alex enjoyed the enthusiasm our team brought, perhaps not fully appreciating how digging in the field when the sun is out and the soil is soft is a welcome break from day-to-day desk-work. thanks to the stellar team here at liz linder photography; mary flatley, anna saraceno, rob lorino, bethany krevat and, of course the iphone camera; all y’all rock. xxoo liz
just when the time’s ripe to pull ‘reach the beach‘ off the record shelf and slap it down for a spin, the fixx (‘red skies at night’, ’saved by zero‘, and ‘one thing leads to another’) has kept going strong and matured since their days topping the billboard charts. these blokes rather enjoyed getting caught between thunder, lightning and downpours, passing the time with the same smart, thought-provoking banter found in their lyrics. thanks to rainmaker media group for the connection and quoting p.t. barnum (“without publicity, a terrible thing happens… NOTHING!”), and the helpful vision of a fellow fixx fan james f. kraus.
ps… check out the huffington post article featuring their new music video, ‘anyone else’.
melissa and peter are foodies with an eye for strong visuals. when they approached us with their intimate restaurant wedding (with a portrait party twist!) we were thrilled. enter the tag-team of liz and mary. liz used her years of portrait prowess to capture the key players in a cozy gathering the night before the ceremony, and mary shot their epicurean event at oleana in cambridge the next day. the resulting images are as playful, warm and unique as the couple themselves.
the heart gallery is a traveling photographic and audio exhibit created to find forever families for children in foster care. many of these children are considered ‘hard to place’ due to being an older child, a teen or being part of a sibling group. we’ve been shooting for MARE (the local chapter) since it started close to a decade ago. the shoots are consistently among the most heartfelt assignments that the studio takes on. this year we were also lucky to shoot david & glenn (of the incredible sweet tooth bakery) and their son joshua – a MARE success story. shots by liz linder and mary flatley.
a recommendation from our friend (and stellar interior gal), abbey k, led to one of our favorite mitzvah families, period. it was a special treat to photograph these young ladies on the lawn and on the bimah. keeping track of who’s who between triplets and a look-alike little sister was a fun challenge at a lively, down-to-earth event that celebrated family, close friends, coming of age, and… a birthday!
sometimes you just fall in love with the details: take a bride with vision, a groom with visual savvy, a warm collection of family & friends, and an exquisite event stylist. if the whole is indeed greater than then sum of its parts, the result is a happy couple at a remarkably visual wedding late in the season.
we were recently commissioned by v.a. shiva to create an image that stands out and communicates his story. for those of you in the dark, shiva is famous – and perhaps infamous – for inventing email as we know it. and this august 30th, email as we know it is celebrating it’s 30th birthday, according to US copyright issue. set your calendars to send a card or birthday greeting through… that’s right… email.
a great piece of jewelry completes an outfit, and can be a token of many things, including admiration and longing. lauren harkness recently invested in her first big catalogue shoot with us in miami. we moved through setups of her new collections effortlessly thanks to the styling and savvy of rising star model-on-the-side kristin burnett. and for the record, shooting lauren’s work is almost as much fun as wearing it!
adding a little spice to valentine’s day was a cinch for the women that celebrated their sassy chic selves in a tandem shoot with allison evans. we brought in a makeup artist and stylist to add to the transformation. art is one of the best beauty treatments in the book – and becomes more valuable over time. and speaking of books, we are now offering press printed books to our portrait clients (of all sorts).

our studio shot the wbur gala in boston again this year, thanks to our friends at altieri events. tag team duo rob lorino and bethany krevat enjoyed capturing the luminaries they listen to in the studio, and matching faces to voices of some of our favorite npr personalities.
