This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, `I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'
`What do you mean by that?' said the Caterpillar sternly. `Explain yourself!'
`I can't explain MYSELF, I'm afraid, sir' said Alice, `because I'm not myself, you see.'
`I don't see,' said the Caterpillar.
`I'm afraid I can't put it more clearly,' Alice replied very politely, `for I can't understand it myself to begin with; and being so many different sizes in a day is very confusing.'
`It isn't,' said the Caterpillar.
`Well, perhaps you haven't found it so yet,' said Alice; `but when you have to turn into a chrysalis--you will some day, you know--and then after that into a butterfly, I should think you'll feel it a little queer, won't you?'
`Not a bit,' said the Caterpillar.
`Well, perhaps your feelings may be different,' said Alice; `all I know is, it would feel very queer to ME.'
Alice in Wonderland may not seem like a professional way to introduce myself, but I see it this way. I am constantly evolving, changing to better myself and growing into a more determined woman, stronger and more confident every day.
I don't have a specific genre I shoot, I am simply a photographer, I will capture the image the way I see it. I love shooting portraits. I adore children and babies and even the hectic chaos of weddings. I prefer natural laid back poses and relaxed atmosphere. Photo booths are very fun and popular and I have so much fun shooting them! I am edging my way into real estate, commercial, groups, events and products.
Check out the gallery, fall in love and then call me.
I work around some amazing people that generally catch me working!!!!
My very dear friend David Lovelady of 5aliveproductions put this amazing video together for a Fashion/Art modeling session I did!
My name is LeeAnn and I've been shooting since I was a kid. My interest peaked in my senior year of high school... 1996, shhh. My mom got a basic point and shoot 35mm film camera for my graduation gift. I shot a few things but then sand got in it.... that wasn't me. When I moved to Kansas City in 2000 and started a film photography class I really found my calling, but still wasn't any good. I spent a year and a half listening and following instructions and still love darkroom work to this day. (Wish I had access). I had a natural knack for picking the right shot, but it was never what he 'asked' for the assignment. Always pushing the line and stretching the rules where I think they should go.
I've had my share of point and shoot digital cameras and hybrids, but in 2008 I got my first digital SLR. Fell in love and have been hooked ever since. First day I had the camera I shot an engagement session, they aren't together anymore but me and my camera are. In August 2008 my first paid gig was for my cousin's senior pics. I mainly shot landscapes and what I could secretly after that, but in Jan of 2011 I began shooting portraits, pinups actually. I've been shooting more and more as I got brave enough to ask people.
I have taken thousands of photos and still know that I am learning, but valuable. It's a fine line to walk.
This is an art, I have a natural talent for getting a good shot, with a few amazing ones in there, been doing it for almost 20 years, the discipline to save the money for good equipment and to continue to take care of and upgrade that 'really nice camera', the struggle to learn lighting, posing, shooting what I want and not just editing everything later for the last 4 years through trial and error.
I'm an artist that is growing and learning with each and every shutter release.
