KIND WORDS

An absolute pleasure! Working with Leia was amazing, she created an environment where I felt comfortable and really got me to channel my inner self. She was fun, open to all my suggestions, and overall a joy to have as a photographer. I was looking for professional artist headshots and Leia took them to a whole other level! I love the photos she took because they really feel like me! Every time I use one of the photos I feel so much joy remembering that experience!

Frequently Asked Questions

It's my first time being photographed! What Should I know?

Don't worry, you don't need to be a professional model to look great in pictures. The best photos I can take are ones where you are relaxed and simply being yourself. If there is anything I can do during a shoot to make you feel more comfortable, let me know!

What should I wear for a Photoshoot?

In general, avoid logos! Wear something that reflects your personality and is comfortable. For artists and businesses, consider wearing business-casual attire, studio appropriate clothing, or branded items.

I'm an emerging artist who is kinda broke...

We've all been there! I'm always willing to negotiate with artists or performers with 5 or less years of experience. Email me!

Can I book a shoot outside of Calgary?

Yes, I am willing to travel outside Calgary limits. Please note that any requests for travel will include an extra fee.

How long will it take to get my photos?

Each package/session includes basic editing, which means your photographs will usually be ready in 2 weeks. If you require a faster turn-around for an extra fee, please let me know at the beginning of the shoot.

What does "commerically licensed" images mean?

Business and Artist Packages include commercial licensing, which means the images can be used in ads, social media, websites, and print publications for business use. Photographer credit is expected whenever possible.
