I am LeeAnn Idell, named after my foremothers, Edna Lee Grimball, Ann Henderson Thornton & Idell Chisolm, a legacy I cherish and continue to walk into.

​I'm a documentarian and storyteller. I treat my art as an act of devotion.

As a photographer and content creator, I work with lovers, creatives, nonprofits, and wellness brands. Being selective with the projects I do allows me to show up fully and passionately for the individuals and companies that align with my life's work. I specialize in natural light photography and filmmaking that is poetic and invokes your senses using Mother Nature as my guide.

Whether I’m shooting an intimate lifestyle and portrait session for a pair of lovers or working with an eco-conscious brand on a visual campaign, I want to capture your story authentically and dynamically.

When I'm not telling stories for clients, I'm telling my own as a filmmaker and writer. You can check out my latest work here. Or you might find me sharing my love and practice of yoga (200 RYT) within my community. I also freelance as a contributing writer for various digital platforms. Themes I explore are freedom – liberation from our own ideas and others’ – and healing – healing our planet as well as ancestral, internal, and systemic wounds.

I love to hike, dance, cook and share space with other intentional artists, creators, and mothers. I'm in the process of buying a school bus to convert into a tiny home and always invite conversation about conscious living!

Splitting time between Atlanta, GA & Charleston, SC.
