I first met Rose during my summer in Portland last year and I’m so happy that I did! Last summer we did a session at The Pittock Mansion with some adorable outfits of hers for her fashion blog, The Haute Looks! It is still one of my favorite sessions to date! We’ve kept in touch […]

I feel like Janelle is basically the spokesmodel for Leah Hope Photography… if there was such a thing as that? Haha. I’ve taken photos of this girl SO many times because she is so gorgeous, natural in front of the camera and because we happen to always have an amazingly, fun time together too! :) […]

I’ve known Monika since I was in 2nd grade… that’s over 16 years!! We were the best of friends in elementary school and I met her husband Grant before they were even together through Fine Arts with a church I use to attend. I love doing shoots with people that I’ve known for a while […]

I met Davia and Ross a couple weeks ago while visiting a friend in Tehachapi, a town a little Northeast of LA. Their town is pretty adorable but when they asked about doing photos for their 5 year anniversary, the beach in Santa Monica seemed a little more enticing to us both! I had never […]

I met Krysten and Jeff a few years ago in Phoenix! They are friends of my sisters, which is how I met them! I hung out with them a couple time while in LA this summer and they wanted to get a shoot in as well! I took engagement photos for them a couple years ago when […]

The more I do individual portraits, the more I love it! I always knew it was one of my favorite things to shoot, but now I definitely know it is! I feel most free and able to be completely creative when photographing a single subject (couples too)! I had an amazing time taking photos of […]

I have been talking with Erika since the the beginning of this year over email. No, we haven’t been planning this shoot for that long, she is actually an amazing web designer who is completely revamping my blog and turning it into a beautifully designed website/blog! I am so excited for the final product that […]
