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 a mix of digital and film photography. When I started shooting film, I knew it was the step I was always meant to take in my journey. There is something so special about taking a blank roll of film and exposing to light to create a memory. I still rely on digital technology because it is also a powerful tool for low light and fast moving targets, like toddlers. I am drawn to color, light, and emotion. I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with my husband Will, and my three children.

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.
