Malissa Lea

Owner and Photographer at Lea Photography & Design

Since 2011 I have been working with family, friends, pets and clubs to provide custom portrait services. I work with all aspects of photography from taking portraits to editing and even restoring old worn treasures.

Fun Facts

Outside of portrait and fine art photography, I enjoy photo editing and restoration, and other photo projects, as well as a variety of fine art, including Acrylic painting, pastel pencil drawing, woodburning and black powder art. Like many others I enjoy traveling, being outdoors and spending time with my family.


My Mission

It is my mission to create custom portraiture for you and your family to treasure for years to come.

Capturing natural and spontaneous photographs of your children blowing a dandelion, or climbing a tree. Moments of couples enjoying each other walking in a park, sitting on a bench, embracing each other. Families playing, doing activities, doing silly things together.  

Along with spontaneous pictures we also take some modern traditional posed photos. Something to share as gifts with parents and grandparents.

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
— Aaron Siskind
