    "Hi Leah...I've a shoot going on tomorrow so thought I'd spend an hour this morning looking for inspiration - so I turned to your photostream - from the beginning!
    Had some lovely music on in the background - and have smiled, laughed and cried my way through this collection of precious treasures...your eye for composition is outstanding but coupled with your sensitivity to seeing "the moment" - its nothing short of Cartier Bresson magic - add to this your processing skills which you possess in such abundance and use with such delicacy and style - as we'd say here on the northside of Dublin - You're a legend Mrs! And its to my enormous joy that we've crossed paths.

    Thought it was very necessary to tell you this xo"

Such an inspiration to me and so many others....thank you Leah for sharing your vision through the lens with us!"

    "Leah is the reason I have become a photographer.
    I rave about her work to friends and family, totally excited about the processing on that one, or the new shot with the flare that is totally amazing.
    She is my photographic inspiration, expecially when it comes to children's portraits, including my own son's photos."

    "Leah is most certainly my favorite photographer! Looking back in her stream and seeing how much she has grown is such a huge inspiration! Her children are so beautiful and the way she captures them and others just blows me away. She doesn't just take a picture, she captures the soul and it takes a REAL photographer and artist to be able to pull that off. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us, Leah. You are amazing!"

    "Leah was one of my first flickr discoveries, and one of my all time favorites. Her eye for portraiture is unparalleled (and the bar is pretty high 'round these parts - so that's saying something) and her rich processing is distinctive and utterly perfect for her shots. I once spent a several hours just browsing her website and photostream, just trying to take it all in. Leah is a class act, through and through - as kind and helpful as she is talented.

    Thanks for sharing your images with us Leah, you are a constant source of inspiration!"

I've been going slowly through her stream, admiring every single photo, seeing her art, her beautiful kids and family grow, I don't wanna miss even 1's just unbelievable! One of the very best kids photographers ever! And there are thousands of them, loads of good ones but Leah is Leah....

    "i've seen so many child photographers, but leah is definitely one that stands out most to me. she is amazing. photographing children, is in my opinion, one of the most difficult kind of photography. it requires a keen eye and special talent to capture their raw and pure innocence, to be able to freeze those special moments that you never want to forget. leah can do this, and she seems to do it effortlessly but also beautifully. she is very gifted and continues to inspire me every single day. :-)"

Her approach is outside the box; real, fresh, and modern, but with a decided twist of timeless nostalgia. Without a doubt, she is one of my all-time favourite and most inspirational artists."

    " When viewing Leah's work, you feel a sense of peace, warmth, and joy. Her images sing sweet melodies that make your heart soar with emotion. You not only "see" her images you "feel" them. That's what a true artist's one who awakens your senses. I truly enjoy her black and white images as much as her color images and I do not find that with many artists that I adore, but she does both equally well. She gracefully executes masterpiece after masterpiece. She is an artist in every sense of the word. A true inspiration."

    "Anyone who has ever photographed children knows how hard a job it is. They never stay still for very long so if you want to get images that are both spontaneous and technically good you have to be fast and know exactly what you are doing. Yet, to capture the essence of a given moment is something only a few people can do and that Leah is truly gifted at.

    Simple, tasteful and oh so full of wonder - her gallery is a treasure and will never fail to make you smile."

    "Leah changed my life! We met at the park one morning and I loved her instantly. I ran home from that first meeting so anxious to check out this mysterious site she raved about called "Flickr". Leah remembered my email address (THANK YOU!!) and invited me to see her pictures - wow! I was completely in awe of her talent, her ability to capture the exact moment and her fabulous eye for color and design. Not only are her children absolutely beautiful, but the way she captures their spirit and personality is simply beautiful too. Her pictures are pure works of art that her family will treasure forever. She is a very dear friend, she helps me and shares her expertise with me and is the coolest neighbor I ever had!!! Thanks Leah for EVERYTHING!!"

    "OK, how do I start without making this sound too cheesy and fan-girlish...Ah for gods sake...people don´t need to read this to know how much talent and love there is in you, Miss Leah :)
    From the VERY first moment I saw an image of Leah´s, I was completely and totally hooked to her stream. There´s not a single day when I don´t come online and take a peek to see what´s new - that´s how ADDICTED I became to see her work ;)
    It´s not only those AMAZING inspirations she gives me, it´s also her beautiful character and her endless love for her (beyond GORGEOUS, I may add) children that make me love her even more ♥ You´re a true talent girl and I´m truly hoping you´re never gonna stop sharing your art with us *hugs tight*"

She's got a distinct style, she's seems to know exactly when to *click*, she chooses great angles, the best light, great composition and her postprocessing is so creative and amazing. Her stream is a true inspiration and I am looking forward to everything new she posts. I'm honored that I am her Flickr-friend."

    "The first night I came to flickr I found {leah}. I was hooked immediately. Her children are gorgeous, her home is gorgeous, her icon hints that she is gorgeous as well. But that's not enough to make a great photographer, is it? Well, her background in graphic arts is so evident firstly in her storyboards, her combinations of text with images but secondly, in her ability to look at an image and see the individual treatment that would suit it best. She doesn't just do one thing well. She does bold and vibrant, dark and moody, light and dreamy, soft and tender. And her experimental nature will mean that she will continue to master even more aspects of the capture and processing. Finally, as a member of the flickr community, she is generous with her knowledge and encouragement. The first night I joined, she invited me to a group! What's not to love about {leah}?"

    "Viewing Leahs stream is like stepping foot in a dream, her photos are out-of-this-world-gorgeous, she is such an inspiration. From her unique soft dreamy colour to rich bw, she really can excell in anything she attempts. Her eye is just so unique and creative, and one can tell a "Leah" photo from a mile away.
    Not only is Leah an incredibly talented individual, she is one of the sweetest people I've had the pleasure to 'meet' online. She always has something nice to say and in absolutely no way does her talent make her big-headed, she is just lovely. This is obviously just as true in person, as she has such a strong connection with her subjects and the love for her three little darlings is palpable. She is a star that will shine bright for many years to come!"
