You know your camera. You know you love photographing families. You know you want to make this really work... and you're not willing to sacrifice your sanity, personal life, or passion to see it come to life.
I’m a lifestyle family photographer and I've been working with families since my days as a teenager in the mall portrait studios - yea, we go waaaaay back. I made a pact to myself - (and the world) while my head was stuffed in an Easter bunny costume standing creepily behind crying kids on a spring-themed backdrop that I would do things differently and make art for families with feeling. I've spent the last 20 years building a business I'm proud of. I love what I do, how I do it, and who I do it for...and that's the gold I want to pass on to you, too.
With a masters degree in education, I’m equally obsessed with helping other photographers cut through the clutter and feel on fire about their work - both behind the camera and behind the desk.
"The mentoring calls I did with Leah were
in gaining clarity and focus for the direction of my business in the last year!"
by far the most helpful thing
> I have 20 years of experience photographing families, including 3 moves, major style pivots, and mega price increases
> I've built and utilize a streamlined virtual sales model that busy families love (and I'm happy to share it!)
> Simplifying systems is my jam - it's how Ive been able to operate a full-time business in part-time hours while growing my family (and not losing my sanity)
> It's totally possible to attract, book, and retain loyal, awesome clients without flashy social media marketing (it's how I fill out my calendar year after year!)
> I believe when you're working in alignment with your heart and your unique vision, you can light up the world.
Leah is authentic, wise, and honest - she holds nothing back when mentoring her clients and deeply cares. When leaving your time with Leah, expect to feel motivated with tangible tasks to move forward on. She is a breath of fresh air and will push you to think
outside the "mainstream" box on business and photography.
