​So here's a little bit of information about me...


I've been doing photography for over 15 years now.  In fact, my mom was a photographer before I ever considered it.  She was amazing!  However, I didn't always know that photography was going to be my "thing."


I actually have two degrees from the University of Alabama (B.A. in English and B.S. in Healthcare Management).  So, you may be wondering how photography became my "thing," so to say.  Well, to put it in a nutshell, I have been blessed with a sweet husband and two wonderful boys, Ashton and Gavin, and I wanted to do something I loved while being a full time mom to my boys.  I always remembered how much fun I had photographing weddings and clients with my mom.  And to be honest, that's when I created Leila Avant Photography and never looked back.  It hasn't always been easy.  I've had to study extra hard, and really develop my skills, but it has been a bigger blessing than I could have ever imagined.


I absolutely love capturing your special moments for you.  My favorite pictures are the ones that really tell a story.  You know...the ones where you feel like you are reliving a moment just at a glance.  Whether it's capturing a mother's love for her child, or a tear from daughter that shares a dance with her father, or the fun love between a young couple, it's my goal to make your moments a treasure that you can hold with you for years to come.  I truly appreciate each and every one of you that have trusted me with your special moments.  Thank you!!!
