My name is Leilani and my interest in photography goes back to watching my Dad with his camera and assisting him in his dark room. Then I went to college, got married and raised 2 beautiful children while caring for patients as a registered nurse. After my kids went away to college my interest in hiking became a common way to keep busy. I began taking my daughters' DSLR camera with me to capture the beauty I saw while on my hikes. Instantly I fell in love with nature photography and upgraded my DSLR. I have since retired from nursing and have studied photography by taking private photography lessons as well as taking classes at the local college. I have submitted a few photos to AZ Highways and have had the enjoyment of having my photos chosen for photo of the day on several occasions. Please enjoy my photos as much as I have enjoyed taking them. You may contact me with any questions or comments you may have. Have an amazing day!
