We did a shoot at the park and Leah captured my sweet girl running around like a crazy person. Leah is GREAT with kids and an absolute pleasure to work with. This shoot was one of my favorites because she really captured our real life beautifully instead of posed photos. Can not recommend her more highly!

Leah captured my daughters first year of life so beautifully (maternity-one year). She always made us feel comfortable and natural in whatever environment we were working in. I’m so glad we invested in Firefly’s one year package, as her photos are truly my greatest treasures!

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; usually they can’t wait to be finished with taking photos. I was nervous about being in the photos myself but Leah did a great job of flattering me, too!
— Kerry
Leah was extremely accessible, friendly, and helpful - planning was like talking to someone I’d known for a really long time! 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. I would hire her again in a heartbeat! 
She made our session with little tots fun, comfortable, and captured sweet moments we will cherish forever on our walls.
