Read What Others are Saying: “Can I just say WOW! Our photos turned out nothing short of amazing! And Leah was so kind and patient and made our 4 year old son smile and want to participate in the photoshoot. I loved that she sends you an information pamphlet that discusses what to expect, dos/don’ts of what to wear and do (like not having cracked nail polish for example or wearing certain colors/patterns). Leah was professional and didn’t miss a beat. She captured some beautiful pictures of our family. I can certainly say her photography skills are well worth the price and we will be using her again in the future for more family pictures. I would definitely recommend Leah Valentine Photography to anyone, she is professional, knows her way around a camera, how to get the kids to participate, makes you feel comfortable, has props, and the pictures come out fantastic. I really can’t say enough good things!” – Melodie Blakemore 2022
