Happy Valentine’s Day!  It is the one day of the year that love is front and center and in your face—hearts and candy and flowers—but today we’re going to talk about all kinds of love, and how this amazing woman captures them with her camera and very intuitive photographer’s eye.  On her first flight with us LeShayne talked about the businesses she photographs and those stories she tells, but today it’s the love she captures in many ways that we’re going to discuss with her.  Welcome back, LeShayne!

1. Tell us in a few sentences what you do. And why you do it.

Love: Captured. It makes a good tag line, a great Valentine’s saying too…but more than that it is what we do here! We celebrate and capture love.

⁠We capture couples making a commitment to a lifetime of partnership. We celebrate moms and dads who haven’t even met their little yet planning for the little life ahead. We freeze moments that feel long but are really fleeting for exhausted parents of teenagers and toddlers alike. We capture students graduating high school and college – embracing memories made and the futures they are just now envisioning. It is celebrating 5th and 50th anniversaries, first and hundredth birthdays. It is cancer survivors showing off battles won, retirees celebrating hard earned financial freedom. It is celebrating change, joy, overcoming. It is story after story of your hearts, your loves, your lives – captured.
