photographer + shampoo dealer + blogger


welcome to the studio


Hi! I'm LeVera {LA-VEER-AH} if that helps with pronunciation. If not, don't worry, this fabulous name of mine gets butchered everyday. Welcome to my space. This is where I post my most recent work, hustle shampoo and attempt to blog {because I'm learning the skill}. The images of the cute humans above are my world. Kayleigh is going on 12 {well really 25, insert eye roll} and Levi just turned six. Kayleigh is my competitive gymnast and lover of art. Levi is my imaginer and doesn't know a stranger. The hunk you don't see pictured, but I promise to get one up soon, is my husband of almost 8 years and my number one fan. He brings me the coffee {and wine} late at night when I'm knee deep in editing. 


They all have formed me into the type of photographer I am today.

While I've had a camera in my hand since I was 10, it's taken me 20 years to build my style and create the editorial type images that I love. Having children, you want to capture the raw daily life stuff, and this has drastically changed my direction of photography. 

I love photographing in homes with lots of natural light, but I also love deep overcast, dramatic days. The details of my sessions are one of my favorite things to photograph. Whether its the cracked skin on a newborn, the long lashes of your 3 year old, the toes of a new walker,  the arms wrapped around daddy, the crumbs of a cake, or favorite blankie... I love all those moments and more. 

Your session is about you and the ones you love, and I want to capture just that. I want to bring out the best in you and your family, for the world to see. Together I hope to create a piece of art for your family to cherish for many years to come.

Below you will see another love of mine; anti-aging, natural hair and skin care. I started using Monat as a VIP in 2018 and in 2019 I loved it so much, I decided to become a Market Partner and share it with all of you! I've never used a single line of products consistently before. Monat has been a game changer in my locks and in my everyday skin routine. You can take the quiz in my link to see what you may need to transform your hair and skin. Even if you don't have hair or skin concerns, consider fresh all natural manageability. It goes a long way. 



Tell me about Monat. How do you manage everything PLUS Monat?

Monat is a family owned, debt free company based out of Miami, FL. Their haircare and skincare is award winning in the beauty industry and linked to social marketing. Before Monat I was the woman that jumped from product to product because my hair was always lacking something. I could never stick to the same over the counter products. Monat entered my life in 2018 and I haven't looked back. I first became a VIP and then moved into the fun phase of becoming a Market Partner. Monat has never asked me to change anything in my daily routine. I can Monat from the gym, from my home, in the car to gmynastics meets, in my bed, on my couch, while cooking dinner... It's been the most convenient side hustle. But with all of that, I've gained so many wonderful mentors and girlfriends. I don't make every "meet and greet" or "content shoot", but the invite is always there and the supprt is HUGE. I've NEVER seen a family owned company care so much about "their people". The company's moto on graditude and giving back is one that makes me super proud to be a part of. It's win-win for our family, financianlly, flexibliltiy-wise, and ethically.

What type of sessions do you book?

My specialty is a bold, editorial approach. I love capturing the fine detials of little ones in the hospital, just hours after they become earthside. Sweet feet, cheeks, and butterfly kisses are always precious moments to document, at any age. In home sessions are a favorite of mine, but I am certainly not picky about outdoor adventures. While littles, families and intimate couples sessions are my focus, I welcome all types of sessions!

Dunkin' or Starbucks?

I seriously should have stock in Dunkin'. I'll forever be their biggest advocate and loyal customer. I like my HOT coffee with vanilla swirl, pumpkin swirl when it's in season, with no cream or sugar. I'm pretty basic. I also think cold coffee is weird.

All of your sessions look so stylish, is there a secret to picking out outfits?

Ah! I love this question! My secret is @style_and_select. It's a membership for photographers to help their clients coordinate bold, stylish oufits without the hassel of running from store to store. When you book with me, you not only get access to my in house outfit selection, but you also will receive a private access code to Style & Select that allows you to pick out color combos for you session and then delivers you TONS of outfit ideas that you can order on the spot!

How can I get more information about your sessions or Monat?

I would love to hear from you! Just fill out the contact information with your questions!
