PHOTOGRAPHY SHOULDN'T BE EITHER.

The human experience isn't one-size-fits-all.

I’m a laid back, midwest photographer, storyteller, wife, mama, taco lover, and professional leggings-wearer. I live in Indianapolis and most days you’ll find me working at home with an iced coffee in hand listening to podcasts or some good Indie rock, or playing with my family which includes my amazing husband and our two wild and beautiful boys.
I know what it's like to want amazing photos, want to feel a connection with my photographer, and have fun along the way. I believe that relationships are important and that getting photos should be fun, and that's why I focus on getting to know my clients well so that I can serve them well. It's my honor to document amazing stories, and my passion to foster an environment that helps my clients relax so they can show up fully in their photos. If this sounds like you, friend, I want to chat!

I'm Leah!

HI THERE,

The human experience isn’t one size fits all, and I believe photography shouldn’t be either. You should have images and locations that reflect who you are and your own amazing story, and it’s my passion to create images that do just that. Oh, and you should have FUN! Your wedding day shouldn't be stressful - it's one of the most important days ever and it's my mission to help you relax so you can enjoy every minute, and leave the documenting of it to someone you trust. I serve people looking for honest photographs that document their unique personalities and stories with a natural, vibrant, and relaxed style. I take a creative lifestyle approach, spending as much time capturing the in-between moments as I do the moments with everyone smiling at the camera. If this is vibing with you right now, let's chat, friend!  Head over to my contact page and fill out the form, and I will be so happy to get back with you and answer any questions you may have!

THE HAVEN WORKSHOP

a workshop for photographers.

Kelly & Danny

"Leah was wonderful on our wedding day—so considerate, flexible, and comfortable to work with. Absolutely would recommend!"

Brynn & Spencer

Leah is amazing!! She is so sweet to her clients and willing to work with them. She has an excellent editing style. She returned our pictures on a timely schedule and they were fantastic! I highly recommend her! She and her second shooter were able to catch everything about our day including the little details that I love!

Lynn & Marcus

Leah was professional, thorough, and kind. She listened to us, asked good questions, & was flexible when unplanned things came up. She was quick to get the finished photos back to us & they were exactly what I wanted for my wedding photography. Her work is gorgeous & she's a real joy to work with.

Galen & Molly

Leah was great! My wife and I new it when we met her for coffee at the interview process when we were choosing our photographer. The day of the wedding was hectic, a lot of things did not go as planned. Everything with Leah went the way we scheduled it. She made a magical day even better.

Paige & Jared

I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Leah! Leah met/talked/planned with me several times before our wedding which made us feel prepared and at ease. She delivered our photos to us in a very timely manner and we adore them. Not only do I love the style and artistic feel of Leah’s photography, but the way Leah operates her business is efficient and organized. We love Leah!!

newborn sessions

Your little one has arrived, and you want to document this milestone with photos, but you’re not into super posed, wrapped, or propped up newborn photos. I got you, friend! As a mama myself, I know what it’s like to welcome a baby into my life, and that’s why I approach newborn sessions from a lifestyle point of view, with gentle posing and a documentary vibe that’s not intrusive or stressful. I’ll come to your home on a weekday morning within 2 weeks of your little one arriving, and we’ll have up to an hour and a half for me to capture all those little details. I keep these sessions relaxed, and allow time for feedings, diaper changes, outfit changes and such because I get it. My approach is natural and honest, and I take time to capture you and your little one authentically and beautifully.
