Leila, a short note to thank you for all the family moments that you’ve captured in pictures over the years, beginning in 2006. We love to reflect on and enjoy all the photos. It's amazing to see how the kids have grown and changed! From start to finish, our experiences with you have always been wonderful! You have a creative eye. Your pleasant demeanor puts us all at ease and you are able to capture some amazing, genuine moments.
The gift of a “Leila photo shoot” has also proven to be the most cherished present we give. My sister-in-law still raves about the family photos that you took at their home! Once again, you captured the essence of the property and their personalities and even got my brother-in-law to smile!
My parents have the fantastic photos that you took at their 50th wedding anniversary celebration and enjoy reflecting back on the occasion surrounded with love, family and friends!
I recommend you and your work to anyone looking for a professional photographer that stands out from the others for the way that you approach your work and make everyone feel so comfortable.
I read a quote by Eve Arnold that I believe fits perfectly: “If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.”
Thanks again Leila – until next time,
-- Sue, Eddy and Family
Leila was a delight to work with during my portrait session. She was professional but fun, meticulous, creative and adventurous. She was able to capture the essence of “me” in my many incarnations – the serious, the pensive, the fun, the mischievous. I enthusiastically recommend her for her portrait work.Thanks, Leila!

I have hired Leila to capture some special moments on quite a few different occasions. She has always made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera, getting some amazing shots of my 4-year-old daughter, which we know can be a task on its own. Leila always has great photo ideas, which makes the session so much fun to do. I would definitely recommend her for any photo opportunity!

Leila captured the love of my family in our 4-generation photos and we will treasure them forever. She came prepared for every possible scenario, not a small feat considering there were many variables given our outdoor backdrop and a small toddler. Leila has great timing, is creative, and has a way with people that makes them feel at ease. I would definitely use her again!

Leila took on the great responsibility of photographing our wedding. She did a wonderful job and we received a large number of fantastic pictures from which to choose. Leila was quiet and unobtrusive and gentile in manner. We were very happy with the entire process.
