Harris Family

Word of mouth is my main form of advertising. I don't have a big budget for advertising so I am always delighted when I receive a new client, who have been referred. It's flattery at it's finest. This was the case when The Harris family asked if I would photograph their children. I had never photographed this family before.

One never knows what the outcome of a portrait will be when you are dealing with children. Let's be are just that...honest. If they don't feel like posing, you cannot make them. The Harris children , however, came with good genes and good attitudes on their side. Little Andrew made it his mission to try and make me laugh and smile, doing his best silly faces and jokes.

And his sister, she could not be any more beautiful. Her little feminine features, so dainty and delicate.

She was like a little pixie fairy! All she is missing are wings!

It was my pleasure to photograph the Harris children and my hope to have future sessions with them.

You are so talented! I didn't know you were also a photographer! This is my first time here to this site! I love the little pixie's pouty and cute! You really captured her well. What kind of camera do you use if you don't mind me asking? I have a Cannon EOS Digital that I've had for a couple of years but I do need to get a macro lens. Well done my creative friend! Luanne

Leigh, they are great! Thanks so much! I posted some of the pictures you sent us earlier this week on our blog, and got lots of favorable feedback from friends. They, of course, asked for your name, so I sent them your website. I hope you get some good business out of this - if not just our repeat business in the future!

"Hey Fam,
We had the best photoshoot ever last weekend with the kids. We used a local photographer (Leigh B) and went to the Helena Amphitheatre. The kids were so relaxed and natural and the pictures turned out amazing. -Meredith"

We LOVED the photo's!
