Searching for answers. Trying to find someone to help. Feeling lost. Not knowing what my next step should be. Eager to grow. Ready to learn. And overwhelmed by where to start. 

Let me help. I want to get you where you want to go. I want to share my mistakes so you don't have to make them. And there's been a lot of those. My growth has been slow. There's nothing wrong with that. But you can get there faster and I can show you how. 

There's a lot of ways to build a business and I'm excited to share with you what's worked for me!

Where do you want to be in your business next year? I want to help you get there! For years, I have been passionate about my growth as a creative, photographer and business owner. I have actively worked to continuously further my education while pursuing photography. I'll be the first to admit... I don't know it all. But everything that I do know... I want to share with you! I can't promise to teach you the most popular way of doing things, but I promise to teach you my way, and then to guide you through the process of finding your way. There's no "one size fits all" to photography and business. So, let's see what fits for you!

there's no place for secrets here.

She is genuinely focused on helping me succeed and it's clear that she's in this because she truly cares! It's important to me to continue learning, and that's why I chose Leah to teach me!

Ashley lewis

I love how open and honest Leah was about her own process. She wasn't hesitant to answer any of the questions I had and I liked that she didn't hold back any information. She went above and beyond to walk me through everything I wanted to learn. I feel like my experience mattered to her and she really wanted me to learn and grow.

Leah has a genuine, kind and caring personality that makes her the perfect mentor to learn from. She openly shares her knowledge and experience that leads the way toward helping me succeed with my business. I can't thank her enough for everything she taught me and I  can't wait to implement the strategies we talked about it. She is amazing!
