About Me

My name is Lea. I'm an army wife, mom and former professional photographer who realized that running my own business wasn't compatible with my life - at least, not the way I wanted to live it. So, I ditched the "professional" part and while I do still take on freelance work that piques my interest, my focus is on shooting for myself.

I truly believe that anyone can take good pictures if they're willing to put in the time and effort to learn. I do my best to help with that by putting my decade+ of experience and knowledge to good use educating and encouraging other photographers (both pro & amateur) for The Pretty Forum.

While I have spent years curating a professional portfolio, the images that have always meant the most to me are the ones that stem from my own life and family. That’s what I hope to share with you here.

Below, you’ll see links to a selection of places my work has been published. If you really want to see what that curated portfolio looks like, you can click on any one of them to get a little peek. Or view my now dormant business Instagram account.
