Hi, I'm LA.

My name is Leigh Ann Cobb. Grand Rapids resident, hat & glasses enthusiast. Documenting intimate, genuine moments has always been an interest of mine; starting in my undergrad thesis as a printmaking & drawing major in 2011. Since then I have grown a strong liking to the more portable means of capturing a moment, and have been strengthening my photographic skills ever since.

This website is dedicated to my technical growth and the transition from hobbyist to archivist. If you go far enough back on the blog, you'll know what I mean! Feel free to take a look around and do not hesitate to contact me with comments or inquiries about pricing & session packages.

A little bit about my Process

I am (for the majority) a natural light photographer. I feel it helps to keep my images as-true-to-life as possible. Light is both the biggest obstacle and best friend when it comes to getting cool captures. If shooting indoors I am going to turn off all the overhead lights and open the windows wide. If shooting at noon on a sunny day I'm going to tuck you into the shadows to snag all the soft, ambient light I can find. If it's sunset... great! Sunset and dusk are the BEST. If you have any friends who dabble in photography, you probably already know this because it's something we just can't shut up about.

Disclaimer: I attempt to make the best image in-camera as possible. Aside from a few minor touch ups on blemishes or skin redness, I do not photoshop noses, wrinkes or any other body parts. I like how you look, I won't alter you digitally. Everything you love about your images you can be proud to know is 100% YOU. This doesn't mean you have to to flaunt those individual quirks if you don't want to. Talk to me. Tell me your favorite assets &  your possibly least favorite assets & I will tailor our session to capturing the best sides of you possible.
