We’ll hang out for about 60-90 minutes in your home, backyard, or favorite location around Charlottesville.

These sessions include lots of candid, natural fun, as well as some more directed poses. I'll manage the whole flow of your shoot, but I also won’t be up in your face making your straighten your back and telling you what to do for every second. I create opportunities, you engage in them, I capture what unfolds.

About 2 weeks later, you’ll receive 50+ fully edited images in an online gallery + personalized slideshow to view like a family movie night. You'll have a month to choose your favorites and how you want to enjoy them in print, then place your orders from your PJ's with Friends in the background.

"What is it like being able to make people cry tears of joy at will?? These sweet faces are just the best - we will treasure these photos forever."

   “I’ve had a lot of family photos taken but none as great as the ones Leah took. The girls had so much fun, they wanted to do it again the next day!  I was nervous about being in the photos myself but Leah did a great job of flattering me, too!
- Kerry

"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."
- Rebecca

"We had a fantastic session with Leah! We had a large family photo shoot, and she made sure that we all felt comfortable right from the start, from the kids to the grandparents. Laughter definitely helps create the best pictures!"
