Ever been cornered by the “talker”?

I absolutely love to share what I know… Many of you can attest to being cornered in a room while I try to tell you about something that I’m really into. In fact I get so excited that sometimes this weird muffled sound comes out and it’s because I need to swallow, and I just ignore it because I’m too passionate about what I’m saying… That is until Taylor gives a gentle pull on my shirt or quietly whispers swallow. I always think it’s just something only I know is happening but apparently it’s a little more obvious! I can’t help it sharing and teaching is a big part of who I am! I’m the happiest when I get to inspire others!

But of course that means that I have to actually know something in order to share it! And so I work endlessly to perfect and hone and master whatever it is I’m into, the most obvious being my photography boutique! It’s all or nothing and I seriously have no clue how else to do things! It’s something I really like about me but at the same times it’s something that drives others crazy (I’m cracking up while I type this little epiphany that I just had). The great news is, I’ve finally channeled my wondrous happy place. It’s a magical land where people actually want to hear what I’m thinking, they listen and learn and sometimes I even get to inspire them… And the best part is that instead of letting their eyes dart around the room for someone to save them from my latest tangent, they actually ask (usually) to hear more! Oh how I love the internet!

Thanks Jenna for snapping this photo of us!

A couple weeks ago I got to take my wondrous happy place and move it out of cyber-town and into Sea-Town where I had the pleasure of mentoring Ajia Luke, an up and coming photographer in the Tacoma area! We had an awesome afternoon working at strategies to build her studio and we finished the day with a shoot! Thank you so much Ajia for spending the day with me and letting me corner you with out swallows to share all I’ve learned!

Our beautiful model, Jenna (my most fabulous sister and best friend in the whole wide world) was absolutely fantastic, as always! These are a few favorites that I snapped while we walked.


  1. I can’t thank you enough, Leah! You are a huge inspiration and get me SO pumped to work my butt of and build an amazing business.

    p.s. Feel free to use that “liquify” tool as liberally as you’d like in the future ;) This is why I’m behind the camera and not in front of it. I thought this was going in your scrapbook! Haha. <3

  2. Awwww, how cute are the two of you! Great shots and good luck Ajia!
