Vice President, Leah Jordan, our Featured Photographer this month, shares her story and some sample photographs.
Leah Jordan Photography was begun in late 2013 after I became a certified, professional photographer. I opened my business by giving 50% of my profits back to the church because I always wanted Christ to be at the center of my love for photography. He inspires me by His light and the surroundings He creates; I just use my camera to capture the beauty of His creations. Several years ago I almost lost my vision in my left eye due to a detached retina. I was almost completely blind in that eye and had to have multiple surgeries to correct my vision. There was a time when doctors were not sure whether I would ever be able to see out of that eye again, and I now truly appreciate my ability to see everything around me. That was a scary time when I couldn't see with both eyes, and that was when my perspective of my surroundings changed.
I actually began as a nature and landscape photographer, but I was gradually pulled to photographing people. Growing up, I was always the family photographer, and I think that is why I enjoy photographing other families so much. Therefore, I now specialize in family and newborn photography, and I use my spare time to photograph nature and animals.
Note: We can not post original full-size, high-quality photographs on this blog. These photographs are small, blog-quality reproductions to highlight the talented eye of our Photographer of the Month.
