We connected with Leanne Liakos about her candid and loosely posed work.
I am a boutique photography business working with clients in the greater Vancouver area. I work on location shooting mostly outdoors and in my client’s homes using natural light as much as possible. You know those old family photos you see where everyone is tightly posed and staring into the camera and you can’t get any notion of who they were or what their relationships were to each other? Well, I don’t ever want that for your family! It is my goal to create images that when your children look at them they will see how much they are loved and how they bring their family joy. What a beautiful moment.
What should clients expect, working with you?
That they can relax and know they’re in good hands. I love kids and have been photographing them for over ten years. I’ve worked with kids that have missed their nap or are super shy -don’t worry, I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve and we will have a great time and capture beautiful memories!
How would you describe your photography style?
Bright, joyful and contemporary. I love creating images in both black and white and colour and I use light and texture to bring them to life. I shoot loosely posed and lifestyle candids at all of my sessions.
What’s your favourite place to shoot and why?
I actually have two favorites! It depends on what look the family I’m working with prefers and gets excited about.I love shooting sessions within two hours of sunset to get those dreamy glowing images at local beaches and parks and also urban style sessions in Gastown and Mount Pleasant incorporating funky buildings and murals.
