About Me

Hello, I'm Leah Fillmore! I'm a mom of four, lifelong learner, and photographer located in Richmond, VA who specializes in Motherhood and Family photography.

I love working with joyful families who want to capture peaceful moments in their often chaotic lives (we embrace the chaos here)! When I'm not photographing precious Newborns and families, you can find me chasing my four beautiful children and trying to maintain a clean home!

Five Fun Facts About Me!

  1. I dream of having a luscious garden inside and outside my home, but I have yet to keep my plants alive!
  2. I love to paint and draw (although, I'm very much a beginner)! Watercolors and colored pencil are my favorite!
  3. My favorite food is Spaghetti! It was my go to meal in college, when everyone lived off of Ramen, I was living off of spaghetti! I LOVE all things PASTA and wish I was secretly Italian!
  4. I love yoga, but I still can't touch my toes (thanks, genetics)!
  5. I am a leap year baby! My birthday is February 29th, which means my real birth date only comes around every 4 years!

Books that Helped Me be a Better Person & Parent:


I am a lifelong reader and learner! I love being able to share information to others especially if I think its something that can help change their lives and their relationships! If you are struggling with yourself, your children, your relationships, you are not alone!


When I first became a parent I knew NOTHING about parenting. I thought it would "come naturally". It didn't. I thought I knew how to discipline and be patient. I didn't. I did many things I regret when I first had children and through research and studying I know I've become a better parent (not perfect, always learning! But better.) Here are some books that I've enjoyed reading that have helped me become a better person and parent! I'm sure I will continue to add on to this list the more I find and read!
