PHOTOGRAPHY SHOULDN'T BE EITHER.

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

welcome!

Hey you, I'm so glad you're here! Whether you've come here because you're planning a wedding, celebrating a milestone, looking for fun family photos, or some rad headshots, I'm pumped to give you a little peek into what I'm all about. I live in Indianapolis and serve clients all over Indiana and beyond. My goal is to make you feel comfortable and have fun, and get those rad photos that tell your story well.

I've spent a lot of time working with the most amazing clients, and I've learned over and over that your rad story matters.

Not what I think matters.
Not what anyone else thinks matters.
What YOU want matters.

You deserve the kind of photos that will make you so happy and reflect exactly who you are, your story, and what you're about.

And I promise you this: we'll have so much fun along the way!

I'm Leah!

HI THERE,

You know how couples want stunning wedding images,
but they don't want to feel posed and forced into a look?
Well that's where I come in.

And family sessions - you know how parents literally just want some nice photos of their bunch without the stress?
Yep, that's where I come in too.

Listen, the human experience isn’t one-size-fits-all, and I believe photography shouldn’t be either. You deserve rad images in locations that reflect who you are and your own amazing story, and someone photographing you well who knows what you want and in a way that helps you feel comfortable to be yourself.
Oh, and you should have FUN too!

This is where I come in, friend.

My images are natural, vibrant, and relaxed, and the way I photograph is the same. I work to make it a fun experience where you end up with photos that are exactly what you were hoping for, without any stress, without feeling forced.

Tell me, what do you want out of your photos? How do you want to feel as you look at the photographs of some of the most important parts of your day?
  
Get to know me a little bit more, friend!

natural.
vibrant. relaxed.

my photography

Ok, pretend we're sitting across from each other and we're having a drink or coffee. I want you to have amazing photos, but I also want us to work really well together! Heck, maybe even become friends! I pour all of my heart into my work, and the people I photograph tend to be the kind of people I get along with super great with in real life.

I'm a wife, a mama, a business owner, so I understand a lot of different perspectives about life and bring it all to the table when I work. I know what it's like to have wedding photos that I continue to treasure. I get how it is trying to wrangle two wild and precious boys during our own family photo shoots, and I know what it's like to get in front of the camera for rad headshots and sometimes even I think "what the heck do I do with my hands!" I'm relatable and real, and that meshes really well into my work.

The Office is my forever favorite show, I'm always down for tacos, iced coffee makes me happy and tequila shots go well with life celebrations in my book. The best vacations I've had consisted of sitting beachside with my loved ones, a drink in hand, and a good book. At the end of the day, a well-savored life is what I want.

I can't wait to get to know you more, and I'm so glad you're here! Feel free to explore around and check out my work!

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 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.
