A mentee of world renowned portrait photographer, Sue Bryce, Leandra also sharpened her food photography by taking workshops with skilled talents such as, Jody Horton and Melissa Brisko. Starting her portrait photography business, she understands how important having strong images are to tell stories whether those be stories capturing who we are in this moment or to shine a light on marginalized communities.

Some of Leandra’s images from Jolt’s Quincenera at the Capitol protest have been added to the Mexic-Arte Museum’s permanent collection.
