mama bear,
small town girl,
beach lover

My name is Cynthia Leota and I am a photographer from the beautiful waterfront town of Port Orchard, WA specializing in wedding and portrait photography.

As a homeschooling and stay at home mom to five children, I am constantly behind the camera trying to capture as many precious moments as I can. 

While I take posed pictures, my favorites to take are those in between shots, the ones where my subject is relaxed, comfortable, and vulnerable. Emotion jumps out at the viewer and it’s breathtaking. 

Hey there friends!

I can’t help myself. I love LOVE!

I'm a romantic.

Laughing out loud is definitely my thing.

I'm energetic.

Can you tell?

I love candid moments.

The beach is my happy place.

Beach obsessed.

They are my WHY.

I LOVE my babies.
