Leah is absolutely amazing. Her bubbly and high energy persona puts you at ease and creates real excitement during the shoot. The portraits of my daughter Hannah are absolutely stunning yet still age appropriate. We will treasure these forever. Leah is incredibly talented. Thank you Leah for all your time and effort during our shoot. Hannah looked and felt amazing and had the most incredible experience.

My daughter Jess had a shoot with Leah at Hoffa studios and can I just say the attention to detail, the commitment to her work, the team work the girls have, the amazing ability and eye for technique and to capture that amazing shot. We felt so welcomed from the moment the door opened and we sat down. From hair, make up and photography they have the complete package. Definitely give them a go you will not be disappointed and will come away feeling so special and even better memories captured in time x


Never have worked with such an incredibly talented photographer... could not recommend anyone better to help capture and produce amazing work


We loved our photo shoot with Leah at Hoffa Studios. This was our first photo shoot and she made us feel so welcome and so comfortable being in front of the camera. The quality of the photos are just stunning and we feel in love with all the shots she took. Leah is friendly and fun and just made the whole experience such a special event. We would highly recommend Leah if you are looking for a dance photographer. We can’t wait to book another shoot with Leah in the future.


Leah is absolutely incredible. She is such a talented and creative artist. She manages to get that perfect angle at the right time. Her photos are pieces of art. My daughter had the most incredible experience and will treasure that forever. Thank you Leah for your patience and encouragement.


Leah is one of the most talented photographers we have ever had the opportunity to work with. We are so ridiculously happy with how they turned out and will treasure them always!


I cannot speak highly enough of Leah (Hoffa Studios). She is warm, funny, engaging and has a calming presence. My daughter felt at ease with her from the moment they met. Leah is extremely creative and has a unique ability to bring out the best in each dancer in her photo shoots and highlight their individuality. She ensures that each image captures the model at their best. The products and packaging are divine. The photos are magical, treasured art pieces in and of themselves. If you are looking for someone to capture your treasured humans, whether it be dance, portrait or anything in between, I couldn’t recommend Leah highly enough. My daughter is her biggest fan.


My two daughters absolutely loved their photo shoot with Leah! They had such a wonderful day and still talk about the experience. Leah made them both feel very special and was so warm and fun. Leah captured both my girls personality’s perfectly in every shot. The photos are absolutely stunning and are something we will always treasure. Thank you for an amazing experience Leah!


After losing care of a child, I treasure my photographs taken by Leah every single day. Thank you for helping capture the most precious thing to me.
