As I sought support and a way back to myself, photography helped me find joy in the little moments of motherhood. By taking a step back and choosing to see every story and situation through a my lens, it gave me perspective and a way to pause and be present. Since then, I've been able to develop the unique ability to empathize and connect with other moms through my photography. I'm not to just here to take pretty pictures, but to be your cheerleader and biggest admirer. Your family's photos will show you what an amazing mother you are and allow you to relish in the beautiful family you are raising.
ossibly the main thing to know about me is that my motherhood journey has been anything but smooth sailing. When my kids were little (three under 4), I experienced postpartum anxiety and depression and felt extremely overwhelmed and woefully under qualified to be their mom.
Imagine a family photo session where you can let go of the worry and embrace the opportunity to make meaningful memories. Where you have space for you and your family to truly connect and play. Through my lens, I will document the moments of joy, tenderness, and resilience that shine through.
Whether it's the laughter of your children, the tender moments between siblings, or the affectionate bond you share as parents, you’ll look back at your photos and feel the joy and love that radiates from each image, empowering you to see the beauty in your own family’s story.
hen it comes to your family, newborn and maternity photos, It's not about perfection; it's about the real moments, genuine interactions, and the unique dynamics that make your family special.
I have worked over the past 6 years to hone my craft so that I can create both artful and meaningful images for every family I have the honor to photograph. As a mother myself, I bring compassion and understanding to each session and create an environment that feels relaxed and stress-free. That way, you can truly be yourselves, allowing me to capture your family’s authentic love and connection for each other.
ver 10 years ago, as a young mom of three kids under age 4, I was deeply in need of a creative and personally fulfilling art form. I found that and so much more in family and newborn photography. With each family I work with in the Phoenix area, I am blessed with the opportunity to connect, uplift and empower moms and families to embrace the chaos and cherish each other deeply.
Rivkah Leah was great for our family photo shoot. She handles the chaos of young kids during photos very well and is very patient. She helps take the stress off of the mom (let’s face it, moms do most of the work putting these things together) by helping coordinate outfits and including items from her client closet.
She also makes a point to help mom remain relaxed during the shoot. Will definitely book her again!
Riv was such an asset to my birth team. She was so helpful during my labor and captured all of the powerful moments.
My favorite photos she captured though, were the newborn and lifestyle photos about 2 weeks after my daughter was born. I treasure all of the precious closeups of my little newborn.
The details of the moments I will never get back in real life, but now have the photos to relish in that fleeting time forever. So grateful to Riv and her sweetness. 100% recommend to anyone looking for a newborn photographer!
Ahhhh!!!! These are amazing!!! We are seriously all in love with them!! My heart is so full and I can’t thank you enough!! !! 🥰🥰
We had an amazing newborn session with Rivkah! We have three older girls and our newborn so I was expecting for the worst, but Rivkah did such an amazing job keeping the atmosphere very fun and relaxed! When she left I kept telling my husband what a great experience that was! AND our photos were everything! So grateful for Rivkah and these photos!

Rivkah Leah is a super talented photographer. I get very nervous before and during family photo shoots, but her calm demeanor really helped me stay relaxed. From helping our family choose coordinating outfits to holding my 18m old while snapping away to really capturing the personalities of each family member, Rivkah Leah is the full package!
With a photography experience that is relaxed, fun and filled with quality family time, you will be able to be yourselves, genuinely connect and play together. Your final images will be a true representation of your affection for one another, while reminding you of the strength and beauty that is unique to your family's story.
