Momento Studios

My love affair with photography began at a very young age. When I was a child, my parents gave me a Polaroid camera for my 9th birthday. I would pose and capture images of the neighbor-kids my mom babysat, delivering the finished “product” to their parents proudly (if you look around the studio, some of those early Polaroids decorate the walls). In high school I dabbled in film photography and would get lost in the darkroom for hours, watching the magic of my portraits come to life before my eyes.

I loved photography so much that I minored in photojournalism from Arizona State University, while working for both a children’s portrait studio and as an apprentice wedding photographer. In total, I spent 3 years in the children’s portrait studio, earning the Certified Professional Children’s Photographer distinction, and 5 years as an associate wedding photographer.

I completed my Masters degree in Small Business Administration in 2011, and am a Certified Professional Photographer through the Professional Photographers of America. I am currently the only Certified Professional Photographer in Arizona that specializes in Maternity and Newborn photography.

When the brides I had photographed began to start their families, I found my true calling: capturing the beauty of motherhood and creating newborn art.

Since 2003, I have dedicated myself to perfecting the art of newborn and maternity photography. In addition to photographing over 1200 newborns, I have invested in education to study posing, lighting and proper safety techniques across the country with some of the nation’s best newborn instructors.

After practicing the art of newborn photography for 12 years and running a successful retail studio in the Downtown Mesa area, I now travel around the country speaking and hosting educational workshops for new photographers. I have spoken professionally for Professional Photographers of America, and as a premier instructor at the Belly Baby and Beyond Conference.

In 2017, Momento Studios was recognized as the Premier Photography Business Award for the City of Mesa, Arizona, as well as the Best of the Best Maternity Photographer in Mesa, Arizona awards.

My work has been published and shared in Cosmopolitan, Parents Magazine, CountryLiving, Women’s Day, PopSugar, PopSugar Moms, and the Huffington Post.

Over the years, my clients have given me the hard-earned moniker: The Newborn Whisperer™. Along my journey, I began specializing in the photography of newborn multiples, and gained a second moniker: The Multiples Whisperer™. I have the most extensive experience and portfolio in Arizona of photographing twins, triplets, quadruplets and quintuplets.

I am dedicated to documenting your family history by creating heirloom quality art, while executing strict safety practices. As a mother of three children, I know all too well how fleeting the moments of childhood are. I absolutely love snuggling new babies, and feel so blessed to be living my dream job. It is an honor and privilege to be able to freeze time to preserve those moments for my clients.

What others are saying…

If sacred, sentimental moments could come to life with brush strokes, never would there be a painting that held a candle to the vivid memories captured by Lizzy McMillan with Momento Studios!

Between Lizzy’s warm demeanor, decorated portfolio, diverse vision, and conduct of professionalism, her passion for photography is full-spectrum. But what really sets Momento Studios apart for me is the personalized experience I continue to have when sharing and capturing the essence of our family.

We are forever blessed and grateful to have found Lizzy to document the moments and memories of our family!
