Leigh was absolutely amazing, making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. With a professional like Leigh, everything was perfect.

Families are special, each with their own unique dynamics, traditions and quirks. It's why I'm not a "cookie-cutter" photographer - because you aren't a "cookie-cutter" family.

When it comes to something as important as your photographs, it's not just about the investment. It's looking back on your most special moments and remembering how those moments felt, not just how they looked.

It's my mission to tell adventurous couple and family stories with sincerity and authenticity - this is a photographic experience as individual as you are.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful work. And it’s an absolute bonus that you are such a beautiful soul!! What an awesome combo! Thank you for everything, I will never forget it.

Leigh did a couple shoot for me and my boyfriend and we instantly connected with her warm, kind, welcoming personality. Her knowledge and experience of photography is incredible and the passion she has is admirable. We had such a blast doing the shoot and can’t wait to work with her again in the near future.

First, let's get to know each other.

I know how scary it can be to choose the right photographer (Dean and I were there ourselves not too long ago!) and I want to give you a great experience as well as awesome photographs.

You want a photographer who you will feel comfortable with, and I'm proud to say that many of my past clients have become my present friends.

So, let's chat via email to  see if we're a good fit.

Say Hello

Planning a photo shoot should be fun, but if you've never done one before it can also be pretty daunting. And of course the same is true for weddings.

I've compiled a quick-access list of useful blog posts and additional resources that will help take the stress out of planning your session.

These include styling guides, location guides and suggested timelines.

If you have questions at any time, I'm just an email away.


I'll be popping in to your inbox before shoot day to make sure everything is on track and finalise all the necessary time and location details.

If you're a wedding client, consider scheduling an Engagement Shoot. Brides, this is the perfect opportunity for you to trial your hair and make-up and receive an awesome set of images for save-the-dates, invites and wedding website. I'll be guiding you through the session to help you feel more comfortable with posing before the big day.

Keep in Touch

Everything is prepped and ready to go.

Take the time to breathe, and take in everything that's going on around you. Your wedding day will fly by, and your family shoot will be over before you know it.

Enjoy this time spent with your family (and friends) and know that I'm here to guide you and be right by your side to capture all the moments that matter.

Shoot Day - Yay!

I know you are super excited to see your images after the shoot and I can't wait to share them with you! I send a sneak peek of 2-4 images from your shoot within 24 hours so you can share with family and friends on social media (and because I'm as excited as you are!).

I take the time on my editing process to give you the best possible results. Timelines for image delivery depend on the session you have booked with me: 8 weeks for weddings and 2 weeks for engagement shoots, family shoots and portraits.
