I'm the Author and Influencer of Poppet Patch. Leigh has been doing all my professional shoots for quite some time now. This morning I received the pictures for my Father's Day concept, they brought me to tears. Leigh's talent is absolutely amazing. She is able to capture the true emotion and the beauty of the present moment in family relationships. Furthermore, she is a delight to work with, her turn around time is what she promises, every time without fail. She is professional and a listener. She delivers what I ask for and not only her own fine art interpretation of the shoot. I highly recommend Leigh! More...


I am a romantic at heart so being able to capture all the emotion of a wedding day is 100% the highlight for me. There is something incredibly rewarding to be able to freeze moments in time so that they are remembered forever.

When I was growing up, having family portraits taken wasn't popular, and I have almost no photos with my Dad. I wish we had more memories to look back on as a family. I fell in love with family portraits and I started my business to encourage other families to exist in photographs. I wanted to create beautiful artwork that would be passed down from generation to generation.

I don't believe that photography is just about clicking a button. It's about so much more. Every one of my clients has a story to tell, and I want to tell that story with photography that is honest, documentary, and a true reflection of the relationship in front of my lens.
