Hello fellow BEC artists!
I am Letha, a fine art lifestyle family photographer based in Clearwater, FL.
I first used a camera when I was in middle school as a story telling device to capture memories with my friends and moments with my family. I continued my love of documenting life throughout high school and college. Interesting enough, my college major was in Educational Psychology and not photography.
My true love and understanding of the world of photography came when I worked developing 35 mm film in a processing lab.
For 13 years I put my psychology skills to work as an art teacher for LD students. In my 11th year, I was told that I was “meant for that job” – that was my pivotal moment telling my heart it was time to move on.
Adding a fine art aspect into my family sessions; they became more than simply recording my subject. It became more about capturing what I see as an artist while staying true to the emotions that were there. My camera became my main tool for creating pieces of art. Allowing my work to deeply express feelings while adding a cinematic twist.
I’m always climbing my way towards being my very best, learning new things and I take on every project with a fresh perspective, deep curiosity, and a willingness to test, explore and to “dive” into emotion (pun intended). I enjoy delighting clients with artistic and emotive images that tell their story.
In all my work, I seek the moments when ordinary people are at their most extraordinary, when they are the most special and most purely themselves. To distill the essence of who they are in a single image.
No matter where we are in life, we can all relate to average moments of magic and grace.
