Game Changer | Name Changer

Well, the cat is finally out of the bag! Proceeded by much deliberation and hype, I’ve followed my heart and pursued a business name change. Much like when I originally traded up in taking on the last name of Fontaine, in marrying my beloved Tony, this photography business is surely trading up in casting off Leah Maria Photography.

I understand that this is a very personal choice and to be honest, more than a few have commented that it seems unnecessary, almost reckless. This business is my passion though and I felt disconnected from it, all due to a silly name.

Can I share a secret? I never loved the name Leah Maria Photography. I only chose it because I was scared of weddings. It was almost a shield to not do them, because it was naturally geared towards family photography due to it’s light, sing songy feel. But then I started shooting weddings and I.was.hooked. I have never been able to proudly share my business name. I’ve been embarrassed of it and have always thought that if I can’t take it seriously, who else could?

You guys didn’t think there’d be this much angst involved in changing just one word, did you?

All this to say, join me in saying hello to Leah Fontaine! With this change I hope to connect with my clients friends on a more personal level!

I know it’s a little to get used to, but I’d appreciate your spreading the word that Leah Maria Photography is now Leah Fontaine!

So many thanks to Gina Zeidler and Breanna Rose Design for your unrelenting pursuit to project my desires. This site would be but a shell without your heart.
