About Leah

I was in middle school when I asked my parents to buy me my very first camera. Photography has always been a passion of mine so you'll hardly find me without a camera. Growing up on the South Shore of Massachusetts, I enjoyed photographing scenic beaches, nature, my family, and friends. Four years attending Syracuse University offered me a world of possibilities, and while I probably enjoyed my Black & White Film Photography class the most, I ultimately graduated with a B.S. in Biology and double minors in Neuroscience and Psychology.

I graduated during the economic crisis of 2009, and had realized that I wouldn't be happy working in a lab, so I got a job in customer service, fortunately in the tourism industry. This job afforded me tremendous travel opportunities, exploring - and photographing - more of the world than I ever imagined I would see. During my tenure there I took night classes at the New England School of Photography to pursue my lifelong passion. After a few years, I began to photograph professionally and have been doing so ever since.
