If someone had asked me several years ago what my life would be like now. I had no idea then ,what direction my life would take or how it would end up. I especially would not have guessed that I would be a photographer!

I have an associates degree in Occupational Therapy and practiced as a full time COTA at a local nursing home for 4 1/2 years, and enjoyed my job. After the birth of my beautiful daughter, I became a stay at home mom. I absolutely LOVED my new job. After her birth, I began taking alot of pictures. I eventually got my first "real" camera in 2008. Shortly after that, my love for photography grew. I signed up for several photography classes and learned valuable techniques and information. I applied that with my passion & my "eye" for photography and in September 2009, I started Candid Xpressions By Leisa.

My passion has grown into a business that is built around connecting with people, making new friends and capturing the beauty of their lives. I hear over and over how I had "captured" the true essence of that child. How did I do that? 1. The children knew me or were comfortable enough to be themselves around me. 2. They were in their own environment, not in an unfamiliar studio setting.

I am so grateful to say that I love what I do!
