Meet Your Photographer

Leah Parente


Hello and welcome to the Magnolia + Pine Photography Family! I'm Leah - the face behind the lens! I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart. At the end of the day, the most valuable thing we have is time. Time following our passions, pursuing our dreams, and making memories with our loved ones. This precious time can move so fast, its hard to live in the moment. And that is exactly what I am here for - to capture all those little moments for you to hold onto forever! This is what called me to create Magnolia + Pine Photography!


In addition to providing you with beautiful photos for you to cherish over the years to come, I also strive to give each and every one of my clients the best experience possible. Taking photos shouldn't feel like a chore - it should be a fun, positive experience! You have your own story, and it is my job to express it for you through timeless imagery. I highly encourage you to check out my blog articles (below) so you can learn more about the Magnolia + Pine Experience and me, your future photographer!
