Hi, I’m Leah Shoemaker!

I am an early childhood educator by day and an artist by, well, also by day but sometimes a little bit by night. Or by dusk.

The Triple Threat: Photography, Illustrations, and Hulahooping.

Journalism is the backbone of my photography style and I try to avoid situations where I might have to ask someone to look at the camera. If you are looking for someone to take your family portrait, I am not your girl; but if you are looking for someone to capture moments on a family hike, we should grab a coffee. My walls are covered with printed photos and I think yours should be too.

I am a lover of art and I am so pleased to be able to use digital illustrations to portray my ideas on the silly and the serious. I am available for contract work and have prints available.

Finally, where does hula-hooping fit into all this? Believe it or not, I picked up one of these plastic circles in 2009 and since then it has completely changed my life. I dare you to try it. I dare you so much that I have even created free, online tutorials for beginner hula-hoopers to help get you started.

If you would like to work with me, please don’t hesitate to email me at leahmayshoemaker@gmail.com, or use the contact form below to discuss a quote for your project.
