Leah did a phenomenal job with our daughter's newborn shoot. She really knows how to work with newborns. The pictures all came out lovely. I also love Leah's professionalism and her brand. When we purchased all of our digital prints, she was able to put us on a payment plan and when we completed the payments she handed me a wood engraved USB with her brand on it. I just thought that was so great.

As a new parent, I didn't know to set up newborn photos in advance, so by the time I realized I wanted them my son was 21 days old! Leah got us in the studio right away and spent 4 hours with us capturing the most amazing images of our little man! Her props, patience and positive demeanor make for a fantastic experience all around! The massage during the shoot and cookie option during the premiere are excellent bonuses as well! Wonderful experience!

We were thrilled to have Leah do newborn photos of our twins. I was astounded by her knowledge, patience, and skill! The photos were incredibly beautiful and we got our print quickly. I highly, highly recommend Leah as a photographer.

Leah is AMAZING!!! From the moment I met her she was very professional and easy to work with. She stayed in constant communication with us from beginning to end. Prior to booking with JTL I shopped around and Leah ' s prices are very very competitive AND include many more perks compared to the competition. She handled our little one during his newborn shoot very diligently; making this first time mommy not nervous at all! The turn around time was very quick and during the viewing we were BLOWN away from Leah's work!!!! We are beyond satisfied with our photos....and will only be working with JTL in in the future for our family portraits due to the quality and professionalism we received! Thank you Leah for making it so easy and fun to do business with you!

We used Leah for our newborn photos and couldn't be happier. She did an amazing job capturing this happy time in our lives. Additionally she is so accommodating and easy to work with. She came to us and even let us include our dog in the shoot. We are grateful to have these wonderful pictures of our family to cherish.

We had a great experience with Journey Through Life Photography. Leah did a great job capturing our large family photos with ages ranging from 1 - 61 years. She took charge in a friendly manner, entertained to bring our true smiles, and put herself in awkward positions to get the perfect angle. She is the right combination of professional and personal, and I highly recommend her for your photo needs.


Our family decided to use JTL photography for our fall family photos. From scheduling right down to the "premiere night," It was a wonderful experience. Leah is a true professional. She met us at the designated location (which she suggested) with props already in place. We have three children and Leah was very patient with each of them. The photos were beautiful and it took us over an hour to narrow down our selections. Thanks for capturing our family so perfectly!

Leah did a wonderful job with our family for our yearly photo. She has great patience and is very professional and fun to work with. We will be sure to utilize her skills in the future!

Although we no longer live in Virginia Beach we make it a point to schedule a photo session with Leah each time we are in town. Most recently in June she took some beach shots of my son and infant nephew (plus a couple with the mommies too). It can't be easy getting such memorable shots of a very active four year old and an infant but her patience and creativity made it stress free for everyone. We cannot wait to have more photographs done next time we are in town.

Leah did a tremendous job with our newborn photos! We are so impressed. Not only does she use her own amazing eye to capture these precious memories but she is also willing to ask for your input and ideas as well. She genuinely wants to create something special for each family she photographs. As the mother of newborns, I was so appreciative of how at ease she made me feel. I had to bring my two older, elementary aged kids with me and she made them feel completely welcome. I was so comfortable with her that I even nursed in her studio. She is an awesome person to work with, plus she provides snacks!

Leah took beach shots of my husband and I for our anniversary. The variety of pics was exceptional and the quality was beautiful.

Leah took newborn shots of our newest baby girl in June and I have been so pleased with the outcome! The pics are better than I could have imagined and captured so beautifully the sweetness and innocence of those first couple of weeks of life. I'm thrilled and so very thankful that I have these pics as a memory.
