The WHO, The WHAT & The WHY

The WHO:

Hey there!

I'm Leanne!  Born and raised in the bread basket of Manitoba.  I love the open sky, sunsets, and like every good prairie girl I love the smell of freshly tilled dirt on a spring day.  My roots are deeply planted!

I've always needed a creative outlet in my life to fuel me.  Photography was something I explored out of curiosity but very quickly I became engulfed with it.

My style is honest, clean, and fresh.  I'm an observer of life and find joy and beauty in the little things that might normally be overlooked.  I strive to always find beauty in every space, person, and situation I encounter.

Other things that fuel and feed me: good music, I'm partial to anything that tells a good story.  I need one good strong cup of coffee in the morning to start my day.  I love to travel... my favourite vac ay's are with people I love, hiking and a camera.  My best conversations with my husband happen while we're walking.  I enjoy some... or lot's of chocolate and love doing crafty things with my daughter (glue, glitter and construction paper are the bee's knee's).

The WHAT:

People have asked me what I prefer to take pictures of. I honestly can say that at this point in time I am loving many different genres... wedding, family, newborn, grads they all have a special place in my life and I enjoy them all very much.  As time goes on I'm realizing that my photography interests have grown with me and my life experiences.

The WHY:

Because I LOVE it!  And I love people... it's an incredible honour to be asked to walk beside people capturing their deepest most important memories.  I feel like my job is a celebration of all that's lovely good and beautiful in the world.

My four children are also "the why".  I feel strongly in teaching my children by example that doing what you love takes dedication and hard work.  I want them to find something they love to do in life and do it with all there might.  Maybe (and hopefully) making the world a tiny bit more beautiful, peaceful and lovely while doing it.

I couldn't pursue this passion at all without my rock... my husband.  He is strong and steady and keeps me grounded.  He makes me laugh and reminds me not to take life so seriously all the time.

So that's a bit about me.  Thanks for stopping by and getting to know me a bit better!  I'm looking forward to meeting you and hearing your story!
