For the last couple years, I’ve done family portraits for the Hickey Family- the mom, Emily, put me in touch with her sister in law, who was looking for a wedding photographer. That’s what led me to photograph Sam (Samantha) and Lena’s wedding! They wanted more natural, casual photography, which is my forte! It was […]
I recently got to photograph the Chocolate Madness event at the Cyclorama in the South end of Boston last month. The event is put on by NARAL (National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League). They do work supporting abortion rights and connecting people with resources. I’ve been working with them for a couple years, and […]
Every year, I go to a summer festival called Lughnasadh in Vermont in August. We play games, run workshops for each other, dance around fires, drink homemade mead, and generally have a great time! It’s a wonderful community, and I love photographing them every year! It’s nice to have a place where I can take […]
I don’t do a lot of weddings, but when my friend Betty-Jeanne asked me to photographer hers, I couldn’t say no! I’ve known Betty-Jeanne and her family since I was 2, they’re great people. She’s a Unitarian Universalist lay minister, and generally a conscientious and silly person! The wedding was at the lovely Lyman Estate in […]
Every couple months, I go to a meet up or training with Socializing for Justice (SoJust for short). I’ve learned some great tips about networking, branding, social media, freelancing and more! Check them out: Twitter Facebook Meetup

She’s been facilitating a music series called “Dialogues with the Divine”. The concert I photographed was an exploration of Hindu and Christian music, and it guest starred an […]
I recently had the pleasure of photographing the Asian American and Pacific Islander Mental Health Forum (AAPI) at Umass Lowell. AAPI was the first conference I photographed when I started up Leah C-S Photography. There were some great discussions about improving intergenerational communication to preserve culture and tradition, as well as some fabulous traditional Cambodian […]
I recently photographed an awards ceremony for the Department of Mental Health. Awards were given to members of the community who have severe mental health diagnoses and have found employment, stability and fulfillment. It was wonderful to see people overcoming stigma and acknowledging each other’s successes!
I was asked by the 1199 chapter of SEIU to cover this event last minute, and I’m sure glad they reached out to me! 1199 SEIU brought together home care workers, nursing home workers, hospital employees and more to fight for a $15/hour minimum wage and better healthcare. Attorney General Maura Healy gave a speech at […]
I recently photographed the Mother’s Day event for WAND (Women’s Action for New Directions). It was a great combination of relaxed, productive and inspiring! The speakers include Sayre Shelden, a founding member of WAND and Congresswoman Katherine Clark. I hope to wok with WAND again!
