My name is Leanne. I specialize in family and portrait photography in the Denver metro area.  My goal is to document real, authentic moments during your session. I will guide you throughout the session so that I can capture a combination of posed images and the beautiful, candid moments in between.

My little boy Henry is full of beans and does NOT like posing for photos. So please do not worry if you have boisterous little ones, they will not be expected to spend an hour posing for photos. I expect children to act like children. I will speak to you before the session to find out some of the things they currently like. The session will be high energy and full of fun, which will enable me to capture beautiful, natural joy.

I currently live in Colorado. Most of my sessions take place in the Denver metro area. But please do reach out to me if you are interested in booking, even if you don't live in Colorado. I love to visit new places so I am also willing to travel out of state!

Leanne is absolutely AMAZING! She is very professional, caring and understanding. She was so patient with my daughter during her photo shoot for her 3rd birthday! The photos came out amazing, we are so happy with the results!! My daughter had fun during the shoot and Leanne was so flexible. Leanne truly understood the toddler mentality and worked around my daughter. The spot that was chosen to take photos was perfect! Thank you so much for all that you have done to make her day special 😊 I highly recommend Sapphire Skies for all photography sessions!

Leanne is so warm and inviting it was easy to feel comfortable and natural during our shoot! Instantly you feel like you’ve always known her.

She gave us great direction so we didn’t feel like we had no idea what to do. She had so many good ideas to keep the kids happy and smiling which can be so challenging with littles during picture taking.

She even asked ahead of time for our wedding song and played it while she took pictures of me and hubs, it brought back all the feels and captured genuine emotions in the photos! I thought that was such a great idea!

Leanne has a natural gift of capturing treasured moments behind her lense, she gave us the priceless gift of memories in time we will always be able to look back on, she’s wonderful! Highly highly recommend!


Leanne did an amazing job with our mommy and me photos! She was so patient and helpful throughout our shoot. My favorite part is none of our photos were staged, it was all just special moments captured. I will forever cherish these photos.


Leanne is such a great person to work with. I gave her my vision and she delivered. She was able to captures moments that my husband and I will cherish forever. Leanne is professional and such a kind person. I hope to work with her in the future!! I would highly recommend!
