I am so glad you stopped by! I am the owner and photographer behind LeeKay Photography. My business is named for my two girls, Liora Elizabeth and Emmeline Kay. LEEKay. They are my inspiration and the reason I got into photography. I have been obsessed with everything photography since Liora was 6 weeks old. After a lot of encouragement from family and friends, I decided to start taking photos for others. I didn’t realize how passionate I would be until I did it a few times. The best part is getting to know clients, while also having a great time capturing their special moments. I shoot with a Nikon, Fuji, and recently I have been trying out film photography. I am drawn to color, light, and emotion. I also work PRN as a sonographer for Pediatric Cardiology. This means I have over a decade of experience working with kids and getting them comfortable for pictures. I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with my husband Will, and my three children. I am originally from Houma, and my husband is from Lake Charles. I am available for travel throughout south Louisiana.

When I am not photographing clients, I love documenting my family's life. 

With my children I get to experiment and push the limits of my creativity. This helps me to become better for my clients as well.
