Oh, hey! I'm Leah.

I'm a hopeless nostalgic who's obsessed with telling, capturing, and experiencing stories big and small. I eat cereal, do yoga, and make sarcastic comments every single day. I share my charming Charlottesville home with 1 handsome hero, a 2 year old explosion of giggles, and a canine tornado. 

Why I do what I do: 

Yes, I'm your photographer, but I'm also your champion.

I'm one of the first to meet your day-old baby, the one who captures that mischievous grin your toddler makes when she's trying to steal cookies from the pantry, and the one who freezes the look of love in your husband's eyes as he sees you two kids and 10 years after 'I do.'  

I put my soul into this work because I believe in a bigger picture - the one that tells an authentic story, that builds a heritage for future generations, and makes all ages feel beautiful and valued from the inside out. Photos allow us to hold on to the moments and people in our lives and truly feel something that can shape us. Every time you walk by an image from your session on a wall or shelf, my goal is that it will make your heart smile and say "that's US."

Leah!  These are fantastic!!! I get a little teary eyed when I look through our gallery--  you captured us just right!  I can't wait to go through and pick out what to print!

 


"My favorite part of the experience though was how comfortable Leah made us feel, especially managing two squirmy and non-compliant toddlers -

she was 100% un-phased by the chaos and still managed to get amazing photos.

- Denise


 

"I was nervous scheduling a session based on labor, but Leah was fantastic and flexible, arriving at the hospital at the perfect time to catch our boys meeting their baby sister for the first time! We absolutely love the photos capturing our new family of 5 for the first time and will cherish them forever.

Leah takes beautiful photos, but more importantly, her sweet spirit is one that you WANT to have present at the special moments she captures."  

- Bana


Leah has a natural ability to connect with the children and bring out their best.

From the pre-session planning, to the relaxed photo shoot, and fun ordering session, the experience was delightful from start to finish and the results are true treasures for our family.

"Usually my girls can’t wait to be finished with taking photos, but they had so much fun, they wanted to do it again the next day! 

- Kerry M.
