About Photos + Words

It can be a challenge

…to find the right tools, inspiration, and time to turn your experiences into stories—even when you’re a seasoned storyteller. Plus, it takes courage to step up and be seen through your visual stories.

It’s also incredible how your stories can help you discover, celebrate, and calibrate your life. Revisiting your stories gives you an opportunity to make sure you’re as engaged in life as you want and focused on what matters to you. It’s awesome what your visual stories can do for you (and others in your life).

Here at Photos + Words, I help story-telling-creatives like you build photography, writing, and graphic design skills, using a workflow that fits your time and creative appetite.

I can’t wait to learn about you and your story.

Who is Liz?
Liz Ness is the geeky engineer-turned-photographer-turned-visual-storyteller behind Photos + Words. She lives in the Pacific Northwest and is often flummoxed by fashion and what to have for dinner, but finds it easy to beat the 1 in 10,000 odds of finding four-leaf clovers (and is beginning to wonder if that’s a made-up statistic). Also, she digs photography, writing, and graphic design.
