a self portrait series from September 2018
Breathe in. Breathe out. Every session holds that moment; where you breathe in + then out, + you recognize that something good is happening in your life. Not every session is during our most beautiful seasons of insurmountable joy, or the most peaceful season of life, but each session holds the beauty of the good things happening in your life.
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 Sarah through an online creatives group on facebook, + have always loved seeing her amazing work with Seniors(seriously, check her out!) her + Elek were so much fun to hang out with, + it was so great to put a voice to the person when i finally got to meet them in person! i'm forever grateful to them for welcoming me into their home during such a sweet, + special, time of being engaged.
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.
