wife + mom + photographer + coffee lover


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 moody vibe 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 a 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.
