family life - January 2018

January is always a crazy month for our family. not only are we coming down from the Holidays but we are also going into both Andrew + i's birthdays. it's really fun to look forward to each of us planning a day for the other person, but plans definitely get pricey + busy.

i've known for quite some time that i wanted to capture real couples, in their real element. to harness true + pure emotion between two people who cannot get enough of each other; not because love is blind, but because love is so much more than feelings. having known Caedon + Brianne for quite a while i was so honored that they wanted me to photograph them, + especially since they were newly married i couldn't wait to capture this season of life they were in!

when Tabitha reached out to me about photographing her labor + delivery i was beyond excited! this was a family i had known since i was a little girl, they are my honorary family + i LOVE getting to be a part of capturing the emotion of the people that are near + dear to my heart. 

i’m so honored to get to share her beautiful birth story with you.

i met Kendra through a breastfeeding group on facebook, + instantly connected with her mama heart. she shared an incredibly vulnerable post about some of the things we face as women + mothers, + i knew i wanted to meet her + get to see part of her story.

Why It's Important That I Charge What I Do

Why It's Important That I Charge What I Do

as a creative it’s so easy to second guess yourself + your work; as Leah i struggle so much with it. one of the biggest ways that i second guess myself is when i’m told “you’re too expensive” or “i know someone else who will give me more for less money”, so i wanted to break down why i charge what i do.
