This album was a gift to my son's godparents who live in Texas and visited us twice this year. The album is extra special since Leah combined photos she took of us altogether plus our own candids and snapshots from their visits. In my fantasy world where time is limitless, I would have loved to make this myself, but in the real world as Thanksgiving approached, I knew there was no way I'd have it done for Christmas.   

If you've ever wondered about the easiest way to get all your favorite photos off your phone and into a beautiful album, this is it! Leah created a keepsake my son's godparents will always treasure. Highly, highly recommend collaborating with Leah on a personal photo album!

Purchase a yearbook

You could scroll blindly through thousands of photos on your phone...

...or savor 100 of the photos that mean the most. 

You could huddle around your facebook page...

...or gather around an heirloom

You could spend 20 minutes searching through hard drives for the photo of that one time...

...or walk over to the shelf and pull out exactly that photo that marked your heart. 

Pull the photos you want for your book into a folder on your iphone or google drive + share it with me 

I'll do the leg work of organizing and playing with the design elements to get it just right while you keep on livin' your life. In a few days, you'll get a digital proof where you make any final requests/changes or simply hit 'approve'

Approve the design

Cue the warm-fuzzy feelings

Relive the joy, the stories, the memories at your fingertips. Repeat every time you pull it off the shelf.

Gather your images




how it works

I’m a lifestyle family photographer , equal parts obsessed with nostalgia and building a legacy. Family photo books help you do both.

I'm well aware that you won't have a professional photographer with you for every precious moment, but you also have some really special photos of your own just sitting around in file-land.

I'm on a mission to help you hold your memories close, and in doing so, hold your people close, too. 

I've been designing simple, timeless albums for over 10 years and I love doing it. Albums bring people together, spark stories, and keep traditions alive.

But they're not always simple to make and easily get pushed down on the priority list - so I'm thrilled to take the hard part off your plate so you can get to the good part that lasts forever. 

hi, i'm leah

photographer and your yearbook designer!

Questions? Just reach out!

Leah! This book was everything I dreamt of and more! The way you put it together was so so perfect and I love the spreads you did for all of them. What an amazing keepsake and something we will forever cherish to have a snapshot of our year. Can't wait to do more!

"Something we will forever cherish"

  • thick pages that lie flat when open

  • premium binding and durability suited little fingers to flip through

  • timeless designs suitable for honoring your family moments, big and small

+ the time and stress you'll save.

the book you'll treasure 


Yearbooks are for any photos you have that'd you're rather enjoy in a keepsake book than on your screen, personal or professional. In the past, I've made books for special family trips, weddings, engagement sessions, baby's first year, highlighting a certain person over several years, or just favorite random images from one year!

Absolutely! Purchase your yearbook now so we can get started and reserve your design slot - but if you want to make a yearbook that includes photos from the whole year, including December, I'll be in touch for your folder of images in January instead!

100%! If your wedding photos are still sitting on a CD or USB drive only, hate to break it, but those will probably be obsolete in a few years. Albums are the only timeless, true keepsake to enjoy the wedding photos you paid so much for and are barely seeing. Let's get those babies into an album! 

Yes! Yearbooks can be any combination of phone photos and/or professional photos if you have them. 

No, editing isn't part of this service. However you share your images with me is how they'll look in your book.
