My name is Eliza Brown and I’m a full-service boutique family portrait photographer.

A former theater set designer, I am interested in telling your story through relaxed and personal photographs.  An important part of what I do is to help you print and hang your photographs, so your memories can be enjoyed for generations.

I’m based in the New York’s Hudson Valley, but I travel to New York City metro area, Philadelphia and Maine and would be happy to meet your family there!

Have a look around and feel free to contact me!

I am a full-service photographer. I do more than just show up, take your pictures, and hand you a disk a week or two later.

You’re hiring a professional because you’d like more than a cell phone snapshot to share on social media.

Together we’ll create images that will last and be treasured for years – even generations. These are photographs to enjoy daily, on the walls in your home or maybe in an heirloom album on your coffee table. Printing your photographs ensures that they will last longer than your hard drive.

About 2 weeks after your session, we will meet again to look at your photographs. Together we’ll figure out what you’d like to do with your favorites. I’ll create virtual mockups of your images on your wall and we’ll look at album samples. You might want to order a gift for a grandparent or holiday cards to send out. Once everything is decided, I’ll take care of your order, design your album and order your framed prints, ensuring that everything is professional, archival and the highest quality.

This family booked me for what would be the peak leaf peeping weekend of fall 2018. (That’s early November, in case you want to reserve a spot for 2019.) We met in Beacon and walked through Dennings Point Park, which abuts the Hudson River. The light was incredible and all of the leaves were super … Read More

More Babies!!

August 25, 2018

I photographed this family back in June, the morning after their son was born. What a pleasure to be there while they got to know their little guy! And – how amazing how quickly these little people change! I visited them just a few weeks later and he was a completely different baby, proof that … Read More

We had a wonderful experience with photographer Eliza Brown of “Eliza’s Eye” when my son N. was about 2 weeks old. Eliza captured photos of our family in natural poses — at times I forgot we were in the middle of a photo shoot! She is understanding, calm and respectful of the baby’s needs.

Eliza has also been accommodating and more than helpful in creating a photo album and picking our canvas and print — I recommend her to those of you looking for a newborn shoot!

These photographs are STUNNING. I don’t even know what to say really. This is art, a very long way away from ordinary family photo stuff. The shots are so alive – you really caught the whole range of H.’s expressions and ways of holding himself, all the aspects if his emerging little personhood…and so much of B.’s and my way of being with him  as well, and our emerging way of being a family. I teared up more than once, seeing such a deep part of ourselves reflected back at us in this work.

Eliza Brown is great for family (including newborn) photography. Eliza photographed our family when my daughter had just turned 3 and my son was 3 months old. Eliza captured the most amazing images of each of my children and of our family interacting together. She was patient with the kids and with me and my many requests for specific things I wanted to do in an attempt to replicate shots another photographer had taken of my daughter when she was a newborn. We ended up with a selection of beautiful staged and natural pictures.
