Hi! I’m Leah! I’m so glad you’re here. Let me introduce myself to you! I am a Jesus lover, a wife, a girl-mom, a bonus mom, a golf mom and the proud owner of Leah Hartman Photography!
LHP has been a part of many of your lives for 10 years. But photography has been a part of MY life for well over 40 years! My love for the camera started as a young farm girl involved in our local 4-H chapter. If you have ever been involved in 4-H, you know that the knowledge gained from this amazing program never leaves you! I loved being enrolled in the photography group, but little did I know that, one day, it would become more than just a fun hobby!
After a long career in events and sports marketing, my career took a little detour when I became a full-time mom to my 2 stepchildren in 2008. That's when I decided to turn my hobby into a profession. I have spent the last 14 years photographing nearly everything, including newborns, families, weddings, high school seniors, and couples.
What I have discovered over the past 10 years is that I am most passionate about capturing the moments in the life of teens, seniors and young adults. My goal for the LHP portrait experience is to infuse confidence into these young adults and help them realize how unique and beautiful they are!
It is my greatest honor to be trusted to document this exciting time, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to meet you!
Want more fun facts about me?
I have worked at some pretty unique jobs in my life: driving tractors on the family farm, giving tours at a gold mine, a short stint at Disney World, and working the tracks for a NASCAR team. But my favorite job title has always been "Momma"!
My feet have landed in every state in the country, expect for 4! I need to make a trip to the NE to check out the fall colors and plan a cruise to Alaska to cross those remaining 4 off my list!
I believe that Mexican food, and specifically tacos, chips and salsa are a true gift from God. Throw in a good margarita and all is right with the world.
When I’m not behind the camera, I’m usually at the golf course cheering on my daughter. She has big plans for the future and your session helps support those dreams!
I am a native Colorado girl and love the mountains. But my true heart lives on a little farm in rural northeast Colorado, no matter how many years or miles between. It will always be home but in the meantime, you can find me in sunny South Florida (usually dreaming about cooler days!).
Some of my most favorite words are legacy, heritage and family. I am truly blessed with a deeply rooted Christian heritage that began generations ago and I am most proud of my family and it's rich history. One of my most favorite pastimes is looking back through decades-old photos of my family and imagining who they were and what their life was about. It is my hope that my photos of you today will fill your family with the same feeling, years from now!
To my repeat clients, thank you for trusting me time and again with your memories. And to those I haven't yet had the pleasure of working with, I can't wait to meet you!
