Hello!  I am Leah, the photographer behind Kid Friendly Photo!  Thank you for stopping by and checking out my work! My style is fresh, natural portraits. Photography has always been a huge part of my life.  I started taking pictures in the first grade with my 110mm fisher price film camera.  I quickly upgraded to a Canon AE1 and eventually fell in love with medium format, shooting with Mamiyas.  I have photographed 1000's of babies, kids, families, events & weddings.  I have taken many classes and have extensive training in posing and portraiture.  My passion for photography was put on the back burner while my children were babies.  During this time, the photography industry was quickly changing from film to digital.  I was hesitant about digital photography (I really LOVE film), but luckily I have 4 adorable little kiddos who let me chase them around with my camera while I got the hang the technical side of digital photography.  While I primarily use digital photography now, I still try to shoot like I am using an old manual film camera.   I do not heavily process/edit the images.  I believe true photography is getting it "right" when the image is taken, not relying on post processing in the computer.  I am a full time photographer, fully insured, with high quality, professional equipment (and back-up too).  I have a lovely, little natural light studio in downtown Skowhegan and have found some pretty gorgeous outdoor locations in the area to shoot at as well.  I LOVE my job and have enjoyed capturing so many special milestones for families in Central Maine for the last 2+ years.  I am always trying to grow my photography and love trying new locations, techniques and props in the studio.  I also enjoy networking with other photographers and sharing my knowledge of photography for those looking to improve their skills.  I often hold workshops at my studio, private lessons and in the early stages of starting a community darkroom!  

You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
