I'm Leanna, Photographer & Retoucher.
I grew up in Northeast Ohio, braving the snowbelt until my love for visual communication led me to Athens, Ohio, where I'm currently completing my last semester at Ohio University.
During my final year in Athens I've been busy longboarding, reading, taking photos, enjoying nights at Jackie O's Brewery, adding to our home print wall, or hammocking on College Green.
As my graduation approaches, I know my education does not stop here; I am always looking to learn new skills and improve myself. I am excited by the opportunities that will arise for me in a few months and even more excited to join the Bobcat Alumni family soon!

I strive to inspire other artists by creating striking imagery and to cultivate the self-esteem of individuals by capturing their beauty in my photographs.
My love for photography began in 2013 upon discovering photo editing apps on my iPhone 4s. In the past eight years my passion for photography has only grown, and my skillset has developed tremendously due to my love for learning.
I have a developed a record of quality and success, and my work is published and award-winning. In May, I will be graduating from Ohio University with a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communication, Marketing Minor, Social Media Certificate, Technology & Society Certificate, and Specialization in Entrepreneurial Business.
My creative specialty is fashion photography and retouching. I have worked to refine these two skills to be the best that I can be for myself, my clients, and my future employer.
I am currently seeking job opportunities for the Spring of 2021, hoping to join the creative industry upon graduation. Please reach out if you or one of your connections may be able to help me as I begin my job search!
