The Firefly Experience

And guess what? To get photos like that, we don't need fancy clothes, epic scenery, or even a single prop. 

That's where I come in.

What if you could hear his laugh through a photo?
Feel the tenderness of baby skin again?
Be transported to joy, warmth, compassion, silliness... simply by looking at a photograph?

It's not just pretty pictures.

You just need to be all in with your people and I'll handle the rest.

What to expect from
working with me

Experience + confidence

I've been photographing families for over 10 years, everywhere from Hawaii to Virginia, in dark homes and scenic mountaintops, with stoic teens and crying babies.

Basically nothing surprises me. I'm here for it.

Simple + fun

You're busy and decisions are hard. I walk you through every step. I encourage tickling, snacks, comfortable clothing, and bubbles.

You don't have to impress me - I already think you're a rockstar. 

Care + connection

I want to know what makes your heart gooey, that song that always starts a kitchen dance party, and where you like to travel. I want to cheer you on through your pregnancies and celebrate your birthdays.

When we can truly connect, I'll be better able to create more meaningful photos for your family.

Qualtiy + Service

I use top industry tools throughout my workflow, including professional labs for your keepsakes that will hold up against all the times your kids grab them off the coffee table. It's not your job to mess with software and design tools - it's mine and I love it, so I'll take care of all the leg-work.

What to expect

"These are absolutely INCREDIBLE. I am so blown away and so excited to share these!!! Thank you for capturing my family and freezing that day in time so beautifully!!! I am so impressed with how you somehow made our house look like a good backdrop for family photos, too. It’s tiny and old and our couch desperately needs a shampoo (or to be replaced entirely) and you can’t tell at all! Thank you!!!
—Veronica

"I am so blown away"

I'll handle the design, assembly, and packaging of any keepsakes you choose and get them in your hands asap!

The final reward of the whole experience is that it truly keeps on giving.

Within 2 weeks, you’ll receive a link to your digital gallery and custom slideshow. This is the part when you get to see the actual love of you family on display through new eyes. I’ll let you know when they’re going to be ready so you can schedule your viewing like a fun family movie. Choose your favorites to hold, hang, and share right from your gallery.

Break it down

how does this work?

Leah’s easy-going and professional personality set us at ease during the shoot (even with a very wild dog and 1 year old)! The slideshow she sent was so wonderful that I must have watched it through 15 times! We know we will treasure these photos for a long time, and it was so worthwhile working with her.
