Leah wants you to step inside her romper room...
An excerpt from "L'AUTRE FEMME" with Leah Barlow.

Shot at the CRAFTY studio for Elliot.
Michelle Nacar is a hairstylist and makeup artist from San Francisco who needed to update her head shots for her website. I LOVE doing headshots for Hairstylists and Makeup Artists and other service oriented practitioners. Those who serve in the beauty & health industries are so used to pampering others they often forget to pamper themselves! This gets me extra pumped to really take care of them. Also, stylists understand the importance of having photography that presents you at your best and represents your brand. I love capturing people at their most beautiful... in glowing natural light... Made up to their liking. I loved seeing Michelle light up as she relaxed into the chair. Teresa Song gave her a beautiful makeover and we had a really fun, easy shoot! Thank You Michelle & Teresa!! xoxoxo
This was a very special shoot. Sierra is a longtime friend and when she asked me to document this special time I was thrilled and honored. I wanted to capture the radiance & tenderness of expecting parents. With a helpful hand from her husband, Waylon, I was so excited to create pictures with them that someday their baby will have! I am so proud this child will get to see it's beautiful mama in the full GLOW of pregnancy... frolicking on the beach with such a proud papa. Sigh... These photos make me a very happy photographer!! Life feels pregnant, and lunar, and fertile, and full- Such fitting symbolism since my portrait studio (my baby!) is new too... and I'm having so much fun nurturing it to life.
Thank you Sierra & Waylon for this gift to create together. And thank you Teresa Song for such a beautiful makeover! I love how our photos capture the moment! I can't wait to meet and welcome this little one into the world!!

This shoot was a blast! Rachel is adventurous and playful and always willing to experiment- my kinda gal! Our makeup artist, Brie is an expert in natural beauty and did this gorgeous makeover with all natural and healthy cosmetics! I love these images and knowing that I can get a high fashion look without using a bunch of harmful chemicals! If you would like an organic makeover request Brie for your session!
What is the CRAFTY Studio?
The CRAFTY Studio is the most exotic place on Earth. No, just kidding- but that’s the vibe I’m going for! -I made it eclectic and colorful because I want it to feel like a journey to a special place- an invitation to step into a world where you are a work of Art...
It’s a Boutique Portrait destination for Photoshoots & Makeovers.
I love to play with different kinds of light, but for portraiture natural light is my favorite. I love the way it glows & flatters skin- plus it streams through the studio beautifully and abundantly!
There’s a boudoir dressing room (also with natural light) for hair and makeup and an upper loft with another set and more light! There’s dressers full of lingerie and wardrobe racks that house a decade’s worth of treasure hunting at flea markets. It’s basically a boudoir playground.
I’m always working in the studio so if you ever want to pop by for a visit please do! I love showing friends the garden and studio, and if you’re interested in a session it’s the best way to get a sense of what I do and what we can create together! xoxo, CRAFTY.
Iya brought this luminous confection by Calvin Klein to our session. She's a musician and this dress is special to her because she wore it to the Grammy's. I bet she felt like a million bucks and looked like a swan :) Love how it glows in this backlit shot! So Heavenly.
