Hi, I’m Lea.

I spent nearly a decade as a professional photographer and enjoyed working with a variety of talented individuals and beautiful publications. However, 2020 shifted a lot of our perspectives and I decided to let all of that go in favor of new opportunities.

My previous work can be found online at such sites as HGTV, Domino, Glitter Guide, A Cup Of Jo, Design*Sponge, Jungalow by Justina Blakeney, Front & Main by West Elm, and The Home Depot. I’ve also had my work featured in various print publications including Domino Kids Magazine, Small Space Decorating Magazine, HGTV magazine, The Fayetteville Observer, CityView Magazine, and the best-selling book, Your Creative Work Space: The Sweet Spot Style Guide to Home Office + Studio Decor.

While the majority of my writings will revolve around photography, don’t be surprised if I throw a curve ball in there from time to time. Consistency may be safe, but it can also be boring.

As of 2021, you won’t find me on social media platforms. I keep any content I share local to this blog or my VSCO feed.

I live in North Carolina with my husband of 19 years, our three kids, and our rescue mutt, June.

An ordinary exercise.

It’s a lazy Sunday afternoon. A chilly Sunday afternoon. I thought of taking a photo walk, but to be honest, I’m really a wimp when it comes to the cold. But I am trying to make more of an effort to photograph life outside my own home. The older my kids get, the less they’reContinue reading “An ordinary exercise.”

The beginning of summer.

I’m looking forward to summer days… Not having to set my alarm, not having to worry too much about bedtime, and most of all, not having to help anyone with math. Yes, please! Though it’s only just begun, we plan to make the most of it. Everything from bouncing on the trampoline in our ownContinue reading “The beginning of summer.”

Nostalgia and sentiment.

I recently pulled out an archived hard drive to view some of my older personal work. Maybe I was looking for inspiration, or maybe I was just feeling nostalgic. Either way, I was struck by the sheer volume of photos digitally stored that never see the light of day. I print a family photo bookContinue reading “Nostalgia and sentiment.”
