Liz Hartzman Photography | About
Based in New Rochelle, NY and New York City Liz has been shooting professionally for over 20 years, but only recently began focusing on children's photography specifically, since 2005 after giving birth to her first child, Lela Ruth. Needless to say, photos of Lela are in no shortage.
