hello there!


Thanks for stopping by!  Let me introduce myself...

Hey there! My name is Leah Villalobos.  I own and operate Photography by Leah.  I am thrilled that you have stopped by my website to check out my work.  

I am a documentary lifestyle photographer based in Vancouver, British Columbia and travel all over the Greater Vancouver area.  My passion is to tell YOUR story, whether it's the loving chaos of a busy family, the passionate food artisan, or the gifted dancer. 

I capture real life as a natural light photographer, using just me and my camera. 

I am very blessed with the life I have and book only a few sessions each month to maintain my work-family balance because, like many of you, my family comes first.

Looking forward to hearing from you!


Natural. Personal. Timeless.



I love capturing the NATURALLY intimate moments.   Essence of the connections between my subjects are what make my images so special.  



Sessions are tailored PERSONALLY for you.  Consultations are done mainly via emails to discuss locations and activities for our time together.  It is important to me that you are comfortable with what will happen with the session so that we can bring out the AUTHENTIC you.We have a good plan of action by the time our session day arrives.



Each photo I deliver are cherished heirlooms. My favourite are the documentary photojournalistic style of my family sessions capturing your little ones as they grow up or those other special milestones.  I capture details so that they are remembered again even after it was thought to be forgotten. TIMELESS.

Leah is a phenomenal photographer, and I absolutely love working with her. Not only does she create breathtaking, meaningful images, but being photographed by her is just so much fun!
