WELCOME

Good stuff is waiting.

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.

These days, photography is my pleasure rather than my profession and I like to photograph whatever interests me. That’s pretty much how I approach blogging as well. 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.

“It’s just a snapshot.” And other crap I’ve said.

The other day, as I was critiquing a photo on a photographer website I’m part of (solicited criticism, I might add), I found myself looking at the image and thinking, “It’s really just a standard snapshot.” And in that moment, a “snapshot” wasn’t good, wasn’t worthy. A “snapshot” was something your mom took during aContinue reading ““It’s just a snapshot.” And other crap I’ve said.”

Black and white vs. color.

I love black and white photographs. Color can be a large distraction to me and so my first inclination is to shoot black and white or convert to black and white in post. However, I’ve really challenged myself to shoot more color work over the past year. The dilemma comes when I can’t choose betweenContinue reading “Black and white vs. color.”
