Happy Meet Our Members on Mondays! It’s time for us to feature another one of the incredible photographers in our Two Bright Lights community, Leaha Bourgeois from POPography!

Leaha by Edwin-36edit

Leaha Bourgeois is a wedding and lifestyle photographer with a passion for people, born and raised in the great state of Texas. She and her family recently moved to New Jersey. She’s spunky, loves Jesus, enjoys fashion and trips to New York City on the weekends. She has enjoyed bringing her southern charm to the big city. Together, she and her husband craft beautiful and authentic stories for fun couples. Leaha believes love is one of the greatest gifts we are given and she and her husband strive to create unique images for their clients. Whether in Texas, New Jersey, New York or other places around the world, they are passionate about serving fabulous couples.

Leaha’s Top Pro Tips

  1. Educate yourself. In an all-digital world, it is easy to educate yourself right from the comfort of your home. We personally love creativeLIVE! You can’t beat free education from leaders in the industry!

  2. Connecting with people in your community who share in your passions is key to success. We learned this firsthand when we moved ourselves across the country not knowing a single person. We immediately connected online with positive photographers that were in the same area. Together we can put our minds together to better serve our community.

  3. Being a service-based photographer means that I focus on the clients’ experience and not on product-based sales. We know that our clients are living in a digital world and expect a top-notch experience. We create custom websites and do all transactions digitally, using Show it Fast and PASS application 

  4. Don’t compare yourself to others. We often have a tendency to compare ourselves to other people and it can leave us feeling less than perfect. Take pride in your work and learn from the work of others that you admire.

Leaha gathered an amazing group of vendors to help her pull off this beautiful styled shoot. She was especially excited about the white horse and the gorgeous grass fields of Sunset, Texas. The resulting photos showcase a vision she had always wanted to bring to life.

Leaha really enjoyed being able to shoot just about anywhere she wanted in the small town of Chico. The inspiration for this senior shoot with Hunter came from his love of sports. She played with lighting to make him pop against the different backgrounds.

Family is everything to Leaha, who particularly enjoyed this photo shoot because she happened to begin her career shooting this couple’s wedding, several years before. She was thrilled to be asked to do their family portraits. We think her use of props in the session really made the family’s unique character shine through.

This family session on the beach is a reminder to Leaha of the many precious moments in life. She enjoyed spending the day with these returning clients because she loves to look back on the old photos and witness how the children grow over the years. We think the beach is the perfect compliment to this beautiful family of four.
