Two full service photography studios!

The Liz by Design studio sits in the heart of historic Powder Springs. Studio 270 resides inside of The Threadmill from the 1930’s boasting its 20 foot windows in Austell.


I decorate clients homes with their photos! We provide wall art options, leather bound heirloom albums, matted prints, and digital images. Our art comes from professional print labs who cater to professional photographers so you know you receive the best of quality and color correct art.

At our Liz by Design studio we are fully newborn stocked!

We have designed this studio around the needs of our smallest of clients which includes newborn wraps, backdrops, newborn outfits, newborn props, baby headbands, sleepy caps and bonnets. At this studio we can easily control the temperature and light of the space so your newborn is the most comfortable at all times.

Maternity and moms client closet!

At both studios we have lots of maternity outfits and toss fabrics so you don’t have to invest in a dress you’ll only wear once! Allow us to dress you for your pregnancy photoshoot so you feel extra pretty. You can even borrow more than one and use them for your newborn session too!

Unique and private outdoor location options!

Here at Liz by Design we do what’s called “scouting”. This means we find private and unique locations for our clients, often times being the only photographer allowed to shoot so you receive a unique outdoor space for your photoshoot! We are happy to share photo examples of our outdoor shoot space options

Photography permits and licensing.

Liz by Design is fully licensed and insurances. We also hold special photography permits to shoot in outdoor locations in our surrounding cities and counties! Most do not hold these permits and may be tempted to shoot in spaces illegally.


We strive to give you the best of the best! We take continued education throughout the year to bring you the most unique and timeless photographs possible.


Liz by Design Photography has been published on the cover of and inside countless magazines, news articles, publishing’s, and has been on the news twice for our viral Be Kind photoshoot. What an honor!

Award winning!

We have won “Best Of” for photography since 2018-present.

About Our Studios

Each one of our studios offers something unique for our clients. During your consultation, we will get to know your personal wants and needs to help you decide which studio is more ideal for your vision. Both studios are full service and fully stocked for any session need.

The Liz by Design studio is a beautiful, standalone building that sits in the heart of historic downtown Powder springs. We have been located here since 2018.

Studio 270 is our 2000sf open concept studio located inside of the Threadmill Complex in beautiful Austell, just 20ish minutes from Atlanta. Our office is located here where all reveals take place.

Liz is great to work with. She somehow always manages to get great images of my family which is not an easy task with 2 children under the age of 4 and a dog. Whether in her studio, in your home, on-site, or the diverse mini-sessions, Liz always provides exceptional customer service, listens to your needs, and produces a final product with a quick turnaround. I can not recommend her enough!

Elizabeth Williams I just want to say you are PHENOMENAL at what you do. You’ve captured some of the best milestones in my little ladies life and I’ll have these memories forever. I’m so thankful for your care, kindness, and all out badass brilliance.

– Yashika Rogers

I highly recommend Liz! We couldn’t have asked for anything more. She is so talented and experienced with handling newborns – we were beyond impressed! The photos turned out amazing! I can’t believe how easy and stress-free this experience was. We enjoyed it – and she made it effortless for us. We look forward to our next session! Stellar photographer!

– Clara Sorrells

I just want to say thank you. Not everyone who works as hard as you, also puts forth such great quality. These pictures are amazing. You made her smile shine so bright my heart hurt. It was difficult not to choose all of them. Your work is outstanding. The warmth, and level of care each of the images showed, was truly touching. Thank you so very much.

-LBDP Client


These sessions are for those who wish to have an inviting, meaningful experience with me while I capture in time the authentic moments that make your family who they are. Whether you are looking for portraits of your newborn, toddler, family, or even a more intimate boudoir session, trust that my expertise in the photography industry is elevated even further by the comfort and ease which my service promises.

Along with the satisfaction of having beautiful new photos to share and decorate with, your time in my care will include all of the cherished details of a mother’s touch, such as a thorough walk-through of what to expect during your session as well as every tip that I have learned throughout my ten years as a photographer that make it that much easier to transform your time with me from a fun photoshoot into a work of art.

Allow me to create your next lasting memory, both through and around the camera.

Liz was absolutely wonderful. My daughter had a newborn session with her after I delivered and we also had a studio family session here recently! Each time the pictures I received afterwards were nothing short of amazing! She was great with my caught images that will last us a lifetime! Liz comes highly recommended. She is AN AWESOME photographer and a great friend! I do plan on using her again in the near future!
