I think photography is so much more than just clicking the shutter button...it's a feeling of connection and letting people know...I see them...I hear them...
You see, I left the corporate world to find peace and true happiness and I knew I would through my photography. My wish is for every person I connect with to realize they are meant for something special in this world, no matter how small or big. I meet so many unique individuals and I love every one of their stories and pulling their personality out through my lens is what I'm most passionate about.
It is why I love shooting senior portraits the most. They are just beginning their journey, some know exactly what they want and others cannot decide, but to be able to listen to their struggles and ideas during our session is what I find so gratifying.
How Leanna Slater Photography Gives Back to her Community...
Honoring our Veterans, First Responders and Teachers
ALL TEACHERS, FIRST RESPONDERS and U.S. MILITARY SERVICE MEN and WOMEN (individual must participate in the shoot), RECEIVE A 25% DISCOUNT ON ALL DIGITAL COLLECTIONS...WITH AN OPTION TO USE THE DISCOUNT $$ TOWARDS ADDITIONAL DIGITAL PHOTOS.
So far this year, I have enjoyed volunteering as the "TEAM PHOTOGRAPHER" for the MS WALK-DENVER at City Park. The day couldn't have been more beautiful as colorful Colorado showcased it's best. I met so many courageous folks, young and old! I honestly do not think my heart has been more full.
Donating to local High Schools...
One of my very favorites things to do is to donate my older equipment to the local high schools. It gives me the "warm and fuzzies" to walk in and go through all the equipment with the teachers. I know they are beyond grateful and that is why I do it.
Words I live by...
"I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver."
"When you learn, TEACH, when you get, GIVE."
"Success is loving life and daring to live it."
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
