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 just went back to photographing for me. This site is a collection of personal projects and favorite images that most speak to me. I hope they speak to you too. 

Ten years ago I picked up a camera as a way to cope with single motherhood during my husband's frequent deployments - I just needed something for me. And somehow, that initial spark got lost along the way.

I have since rediscovered my love of photography and hope to help others to do the same by putting my years of experience and knowledge to good use educating other photographers (both pro & amateur) for The Pretty Forum and through local workshops.

Happy shooting!
