Hi I'm Leanne!
How can I ask you to be real and raw with me if I don’t do the same? If I’m being honest, I spend almost all the money I make on things I don’t need at target. I listen to an embarrassing amount of 90s love music, and the “ are you still watching this” shows up on my Netflix more times than I would like to admit. I’m a terrible driver and even worse dancer but that’s okay because I can make a mean wedding day timeline and take an okay picture. My dog is basically the love of my life and everything I do is to give her the best doggy life. Ive got a husband too, he’s alright :p
If it looks like I travel a lot its because I do. Somehow I’ve managed to photograph couples in nineteen countries so far. There’s something so magical about falling asleep and waking up in a new time zone, I crave that feeling. Currently I split up my time between sunny Seattle, Washington and my small hometown in Upstate New York.
The reason why I choose to do this day in and day out is because I understand the power of just one picture and what it can mean to someone. My husband is in the Army and we have spent more time apart than together. I know the worth of a photograph and how it can bring back feelings of someone who isn’t physically there. At one point we were spending 9 months apart at a time and the only thing I had to remind myself that I wasn’t in a relationship with an idea or my phone was photographs we had together and a promise of a future. Photographs of us mean everything to me. I want to provide my clients that same feeling.
I honestly don’t know what else I would be doing with my life if I wasn’t a photographer. I’ve been doing this far before I could even legally drink and I’m pretty sure being a photographer just runs in my blood now ( guys I’m almost 30 now, its been a hell of a ride.) Doing this is just second nature to me and truthfully it’s a pretty sweet gig.
