About Me

My name is Leah McCarley, I'm 25 years old, and I am an upcoming photographer serving the East Alabama area. I am specializing in Newborn Fine Art Photography but I also enjoy Maternity, family, lifestyle and fresh 48 portraits as well.

I have been happily married since August 2012 and we have 2 beautiful little girls (ages 2 and 5) and one handsome little boy (age 4). We also have 2 dogs, one cat, a couple of shrimp and snails. My love for photography blossomed after I had my kids and realized the importance of documenting life as it is and watching our family grow through those images. I knew I loved it and wanted to learn more and make a profession of it so I can offer the same to other families. At the time, my husband was in the air force and we lived in Cheyenne, WY. I knew once we moved home I wanted to pursue my dream of becoming a newborn & family photographer. Once we moved back home (here in Alabama) I began building my portfolio April of 2017 and it has been nothing but fun and successful since.

I love what I do and love that I am able to do it from home so I can be with my kids all while helping my husband support our family.
