Who Are You?
After Leilani was asked to photograph the birth of her niece 6 years ago, she knew she had found her calling. She immediately started transitioning her existing portrait business to one that specializes in birth and breastfeeding photography. Since that moment of clarity, her work has gained rapid attention across the world. In 2013, Leilani was named Best Birth Photographer in Austin, Texas (a title she still holds) and in 2014 she won the IAPBP's International People's Choice Award for her rare image of a baby born in the caul. Leilani's images are described as emotive, touching, and genuine. Leilani is the founder of the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project (PBAP), an initiative that has attracted the talent of 65 breastfeeding photographers from around the globe. Since appearing on ABC News Nightline, Leilani has been commissioned to provide photography for health clinics, art shows and documentaries. In her recent foray into teaching and speaking, Leilani has discovered a love for inspiring other photographers to find and connect with their unique selves, allowing them to find their voice in the photography world. Leilani and her husband Andrew live in Austin, Texas with their four children. She credits her own experiences in motherhood for her unique ability to connect with her clients, and tell their birth story with dedication and grace.
