Bay Area Boudoir, Maternity and Portrait Photographer
Hello! I’m Liza Head, aka Juniper Spring Photography, and I’m a fine art wedding and portrait photographer based in San Jose, California. This is my portrait site, but you can see my wedding website here. My first love of documenting weddings led to my second, though no less sincere, love of photographing women. Photographing women gives me a chance to utilize my creativity and fine art background to really celebrate my clients individually – who they are on the outside as well as the inside. Getting to both document something meaningful and create something beautiful is deeply satisfying to my soul. It’s hard to put into words why photographing women is so meaningful to me, but I’m going to try :). It is in part because I enjoy connecting – I love the camaraderie, the shared experience of womanhood. I enjoy getting to know my clients, learning about who they are and how they want to be photographed. I also enjoy working together with them to create the fantasy photo shoot they’ve always dreamed of, the creative partnership that forms when a client shares their ideas and a photographed brings them to fruition. Finally, I find it deeply meaningful when a woman takes the time out of her busy life to do something for herself; something which will endure the test of time, which will be evidence of who she was at the precise moment when she chose to enter my studio. It takes a leap of faith in herself and in me – she has to make the decision that she is worth it, and to trust me to photograph her. Whether this is a boudoir session, in which a woman can explore her sexier side in the way which feels truest to who she is – or it’s a maternity shoot in which a woman is honoring her body as she grows her family – or it is simply a portrait of a woman to capture her at a moment in time in her life – I am honored to be a part of that.
This website is work in progress – I am always trying to update it as I sometimes create work faster than I can update the website. If you want to see the latest, you can check out my wedding instagram, my portrait instagram, or my blog (which is shared between my wedding and portrait work).
While I’m based in San Jose, I love shooting all over the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, with a particular passion for beautiful outdoor locations. Please take a look around my site, peek at some of my favorite past weddings, check out my popular water portraits, and if you have any questions, don’t be shy and give me a holler :). Thanks so much for visiting!
