"It started with the love of a little dog."

A little about me...

South Somerset-based and AOP accredited photographer Shanie Leanne found inspiration from the beauty of nature which forged her passion for photography.

It started with the love of a little dog, Hugo. From hiking buddy to photo subject over the years.

Shanie feels most at home in nature, having grown up a tomboy-country-bumpkin in the spectacular wilds of the South Downs. A natural creative following a heart has led her to the performing arts, video games and music industries.

Photography is more than a picture, more than immortalising a fraction of a moment, even, more than art!
It is about capturing something that cannot be held, elevating the essences that a memory cannot recreate.

"I had one of my first photo shoots with Shanie, so I was nervous at the thought of being in front of a camera but she made me feel super relaxed. She was very professional and showcased her skills using natural lighting. She straight away made me feel at ease with conversation, making me totally forgot I even had a camera pointing at me. Shanie was suggesting casual positions so it felt very natural. When I saw the quality of the photos after the shoot, I was amazed! The lighting and angles were incredible. Every photo looked very professional and flattering and I couldn't have been more grateful. Would definitely recommend!"

Alison Berrisford // Hampshire

"Shanie came to take photos of my doggos doing their own thing. She really captured their silly nature and wasn't shy of a little mud. The photos are gorgeous and I'm going to blow them up and put them on my wall! Will be booking Shanie again for some more pet photos. Thank you so much Shanie! Badger says Hi!"

Thomas Rowland // Hampshire

"I had high expectations from the evidence I'd seen, however working with Shanie went beyond them - for me it's more than just about the pictures there is a beautiful soul behind that camera."

Sam Lewis // Hampshire

"Shanie is a brilliant photographer! I think we were the first family photos she took and they came out amazing! She captured my children’s characters completely. She was lovely to the kids - as most of the shots were natural there was no constant “look at the camera!” She will go very far in her photography career I’m sure of it. I will definitely be going to her in the future for more beautiful photos 🙂"
