These are one of my favorite types of sessions, and really are at the heart of what I do. These sessions focus on the bond between mom and baby in a beautiful, natural, and raw way. They highlight the beauty of what your body has gone through, the home baby held for 9 months, and the beauty of being a women. Modest, yet honest and real, these sessions can be curated to fit your personality and home. They can include breastfeeding, bottle feeding, stretch marks, messy mom hair, ect. The goal is to capture you, just as you are, and to bring honor to what you have done. YOU and your child are amazing and deserve to celebrate that. Typically done in your home. 50+ images professionally edited and delivered via digital link.
Milk bath Session
Milk bath sessions are a great way to highlight the bond between you and your baby in a simple and elegant way. Milk bath sessions can be done during pregnancy or with any age child from newborn to toddler. All natural, a pretty top and bottom set, or a full on fancy gown- the style and theme is completely customizable and only limited by your imagination. I will provide the milk bath recipe, and flowers (or sprinkles, leaves, etc) of your choice. Session can be done in my home or yours if you have a tub that will work for this type of session. 40+ photos professionally edited and delivered via digital link. This session can be added on to a newborn or maternity session at a discounted rate.
Your tired, your plate is full, and you are not sure if your up for a maternity session, but take the leap of faith because its worth it! You will not regret booking a session with me, or capturing this fleeting time in your life. It's time to cherish the work that your body is doing mama. Come with me and we can create a space in which you feel relaxed, cherished, and more beautiful then you could imagine.
Maternity sessions can be customized to fit your style. Beautiful location options with easy comfortable poses and plenty of time for rest. Maternity session prices may change based on number of locations, outfits, and additional family members. Limited number of dresses available for rent. 40+ photos professionally edited and delivered via digital link.
Newborn Lifestyle Session
Newborn Lifestyle sessions include a storytelling type of gallery highlighting your families personality. These sessions can include parents, siblings, grandparents, etc. I prefer to capture newborn photos in this style because babies love to be held, touched, snuggled. I believe that there is more beauty to be found in tender moments and connections then in studio style posing and portraits. Done in home, or outside. 50+ photos professionally edited and delivered via digital link.
Leann Allen is amazing! We had Leann do our birth photos. Not only did I get the sweetest pictures, I also gained a true friend. Birth is a very intimate thing and she honored that. Leann has a good intuition of knowing when you may need a word of encouragement and when you may need a little space during the birth process. My family is so grateful to her and the sweet gift of photos we will cherish forever. I hope Leann can be present for all my babies coming into the world.
-Mattie, birthed at Women's Hospital Greensboro
Leann photographed my son's birth this summer and I 100% suggest anyone thinking of hiring a birth photographer to just meet Leann once and you'll see why she is so highly rated. I'm a very private person in general and especially in labor and only wanted my fiancee and doula in the room to minimize noise and distractions. When I decided to look into birth photography I knew it would take a special person who could capture the moments and memories I wanted without stepping into my birth space. Leann blended into my birth team seamlessly, she was there but she wasn't. I never once felt like I was being photographed or distracted by her quiet and unassuming presence in the room. When I saw the photos from my birth I was blown away by the raw emotions captured as well as her talent for photography. If you hire Leann to do your birth or any other event you will not be disappointed!
-Serena, birthed in Statesville
Leann is absolutely amazing! Not only was she my photographer but an amazing support person and friend during my labor and after! Her presence put my mind at ease. Her heart truly goes into her work and It’s so evident in her passion and love for labor and birth! I am looking forward to working with her again for nursing and post partum photos! I will never forget my birth experience and Leann’s kind and encouraging words! ❤️❤️ She will always hold a special place in my heart!
-Tiffany, birthed at Forsyth Medical Center Winston Salem
I highly reccomend her as your photographer. She is very unbelievably easy to work with, both in staying in contact during labor, the day of your birth, and when she delivered the images. She is super responsive over text and facebook and provided our photos way ahead of schedule. She even sent some gorgeous sneak peek prints the day after with a birth announcement. In person, she is really kind and friendly and we were comfortable around her, we couldn't even tell she was in the room. End-to-end, we couldn’t have had a better experience with her or our photos. I couldn’t recommend her more!” you can truly see how much she loves what she does through her photos!
-Mindy, Birthed at Women's Hospital Greensboro
She is the best photographer! She was so easy to get along with and fit right in with my family. I highly recommend her. I mentioned a few things I wanted her to focus on and she was very accommodating. Her work is amazing and I am beyond thrilled with her. If you are looking for a photographer you have came to the right place. She also made our birth announcement and had it ready very quick.
-Ashley, birthed at Women's Hospital Greensboro
Leann was my labor and birth photographer as well as my Newborn photographer. She was so kind and captured the experience marvelously. She felt like a doula, helping me through tough moments of labor. She was kind and patient. I would use her again for any of my photography needs.
-Crystal, home birth
Such a wonderful photographer & person. I was amazed at how beautiful our birth photos are! God has given her a special gift, to capture perfect images for families. Would definitely use her again!
-Janie, birthed at Women's Hospital Greensboro
Leann is amazing, she was kind, patient & very caring. She took gorgeous pictures, exactly what I wanted! I will be using her for my future photography needs!
-Patricia, birthed at Women's Hospital Greensboro
Leann did an amazing job and showed a lot of care. The hospital was not very accommodating but she still caught some beautiful moments and was great company when my husband had to leave.
