I'm LeeAnn, named after my foremothers,Edna Lee Grimball & Ann Henderson Thornton, a legacy I cherish and continue to explore and walk into.
While I've been a professional photographer and creative entrepreneur for just over 4 years, I've been a storyteller all of my life. As such, I understand the power of story and have made it my life's work to tell and curate stories that inspire, empower and celebrate who we are.
My background is in film and journalism, both traits that I pull from in my work as a photographer and content creator for nonprofits, lifestyle and wellness brands. I specialize in natural light photography and minimalist filmmaking. My visuals are poetic, cinematic and full-bodied. But no shoot is the same, and I thrive in the adventure of making my client's dreams a reality. 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 fully and authentically.
When I'm not telling stories for clients, I'm telling my own as a filmmaker and creative director. You can check out my latest work here. 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 travel, hike, dance, brew kombucha and share space with other intentional artists, creators, and mothers.
Based in Atlanta, GA. Available for Travel.
