Hello and welcome!
My name is Leah Parks and I am a full-time photographer located in Hamilton County, Indiana. I am passionate about helping people feel empowered through imagery and art. I thoroughly enjoy being able to document the years with my camera and being able to use my love for that to help others. I studied studio art & photography at the University of Indianapolis. I am married to the love of my life and we have a beautiful four-year-old daughter.
I started this business in February of 2019 after being told that my daughter had Autism. I was working full time and had a good career but I was trying to balance a second job, weekly occupational and speech therapy sessions, and spending months trying to schedule an IEP so she could get into a developmental preschool. My full-time job was anything but flexible and I was being forced to put it before the well-being of my one and only daughter.
It was then that I decided to do something and a month later Nightingale + Willow was established. I can now be a mom of a special needs kiddo and schedule my life and career around her needs and the needs of my family.
