My name is Leesa. I was told I'm supposed to write how awesome I am in this space. Instead, I'd like to write about how awesome YOU are and how I'd like to help you express YOUR awesomeness and capture your memories of your life with you in digital imagery. I'd like to connect with you in a comfortable environment such as a park, a beach at sunset or a special event or time of your life you'd like to remember forever. Keeping loved ones near with photography even if they are far away. This is about you and your story.
Check out some of the work I've done just so you know what to expect. Every person and event is different so I am open to new ideas and options. I would like to tell you a little about my background. Photography is in my bloodline. My Great-Grandfather was a portrait Photographer in the late 1800's. I'm fortunate to have a few of his photographs. My Father often had a little darkroom set up in our family bathroom. I've loved photography since I was a kid. I took photos of my friends, making funny poses and faces. I also was doing journalist photography before I knew what it was. I took photographs of my friends helping me roll the newspapers for my paper route. In junior high, I was a photographer on the yearbook staff. Later down the road of life, I became serious and got into professional photography. I worked in Real Estate Photography, shooting virtual tours in Scottsdale, AZ. When I moved to Maui over ten years ago, I extended my photography skills even more, pointing my lens at everything in sight. This island is mesmerizing!! I worked at a resort as a Portrait Photographer for (accumulated over) 2 years and doing free-lance work such as family portraits, couples/engagement sessions, weddings, maternity/infants and even pageants. I also own www.mauirealestatephotography.com. Photography is my passion and my life's work!
Thank you for taking your time to read this and I look forward to creating magic memories with you!
Mahalo nui loa!
