Your Photographer Hi! I’m Leigha! I am a natural light wedding and portrait photographer based in Lake Charles, LA. When I’m not photographing my flawless clients, you can find me busy in a classroom as a high school history teacher. I am completely confident that God gave me two jobs better than anything I could have ever dreamed for myself. I began photography during my freshman year of college in 2013. (If you’re doing the math, that means I’m in my early-twenties!) It didn't take long for me to become obsessed with learning more about lighting, posing, and making my clients feel loved! I laugh a lot and love the Lord. Your session is an opportunity for me to serve you and make you feel as beautiful as you are!

I will ask you to show me 2-3 photos of yourself that you feel GREAT in so we can mimic your best angles. Have them easy to reach on your phone.
Relax! Once your session begins I will guide you through posing that is most flattering for you! Don’t be nervous about this, I know just what to do to make you look your best.

What to Wear
If you’re in need of outfit inspiration, follow the direction of any of the gorgeous ladies in this guide! I am also happy to send you a link to my Pinterest board with inspiration. Try to avoid bright neon colors such as orange/red, hot pink, or bright purple. These colors will reflect onto your skin in a way that is nearly impossible to edit. The best color for nearly any skin tone is BLUE! This magic color photographs well in any shade. Neutrals (white, black, tan, brown, olive green) are always flattering as well. Accessories are always helpful! Bring along layers like a jacket /kimono, hats, sunglasses, scarves, and jewelry. They can add variety to your posing and change your look! A pair of heels can dress up any outfit.

MAKE IT YOUR
Would you choose a green, urban, or rustic location for your shoot? Would you rather your locations reflect your personality and goals? Check the examples on the next page for inspiration in choosing a location that reflects YOU.
Your senior photos are a representation of your high school experience. If you were on the dance team, a cheerleader, band member, athlete, or any other involved student, I want to incorporate that into your session! Bring along your uniform or memorabilia to include in your session.
Props make a session so much fun! Some cute suggestions include chairs or furniture, flowers, cotton candy, a bicycle, books, a picnic basket, a cute car, balloons, American flags, and SO much more!

Frequently Asked Questions HOW SOON AFTER OUR SESSION WILL OUR IMAGES BE AVAILABLE? My typical turnaround time for a session is 2-3 weeks. At this point your photos will be available via digital download. If you choose to order prints from within the gallery, they will take an additional week for processing and delivery. WHEN IS PAYMENT DUE? The session fee is due at the start of the session. WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS ON THE DAY OF MY OUTDOOR SESSION? In the unfortunate event of rain during a scheduled outdoor session, we will reschedule for another day. WHAT FORM OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT? Cash or check payments can be accepted. WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE? Our locations will be based on your clothing choice and personal preference. Reference images you see in this welcome guide to help determine the best locations for your session. My favorite locations are ones that are personal to YOU. I can recommend session locations- but they will never be as special as your family’s barn or favorite café! CAN I BRING MY PET TO OUR SESSION? That would be great- but we will have to double check with our location first. Please be sure to keep your pet on a leash and bring a friend to your session who can watch you pet while we take picture of you alone.
