About Liz & Michael
Husband and wife team, Liz and Michael Ostendorp, have been photographers for 15 years, the past four professionally. They specialize in portraits using natural light and newborn lifestyle sessions. Liz and Michael met at a photography meet-up, doing what they love most: taking pictures! Their approach to everything they shoot is simple: capture real moments that people cherish. The joke that someone tells that causes everyone to laugh, the smiles in between poses, or something as simple as a child picking up a leaf while walking – these are the things that make life beautiful. These are the moments you will look back on and remember, and that Liz and Michael aim to capture.
Liz and Michael's photos have been featured in Millburn Short-Hills Magazine, Montclair Magazine, and The Daily Record.

She has taught art for over 15 years, including summer camps and programs for children with Autism. She has a great rapport with children of all ages and specializes in portraits. In her spare time, she likes wine tasting and visiting the many vineyards in NJ. Liz also enjoys cooking, cross fit and spending time with her one and a half year old daughter and two cats.
Michael graduated Franklin Pierce University in 2001 with a BA in English. He has been a graphic designer for over 15 years, most recently designing local magazines in northern New Jersey. His speciality is interior and landscape photography. When not spending time in Adobe Photoshop, or chasing his one and a half year old daughter, Michael likes to read, tend to his backyard gardens and go wine tasting with his wife.
