Meet Your Photographer

Hi Friends!

My name is Rachel Hayden. I am a wife, momma, and photographer based out of Springfield, MO. I specialize in birth photography, newborn lifestyle photography, and family lifestyle photography. I love music, books, antiques, coffee, laughing, and taking pictures. I have always had a great deal of love for photography, and knew I wanted to own my own business one day. I named my business after my grandmother, Leona May, who embodies passion, fearlessness, and zest for life. Three things I wanted my photography work to be about.

I feel so blessed to have a job where I can meet so many remarkable people, explore beautiful places, and find beauty in the every day. Take a look around the website to learn more about me and my style. If you feel like we are a good fit, have questions or are ready to book your session, email me at

I hope to hear from you soon!
