We love making the process of getting your portrait or headshot done easy and stress-free! If you’ve never had professional photography done before and feel nervous – don’t! Many of our clients are first timers. We provide all the directions necessary when you arrive and walk you through the experience. Here is a basic summary of our work flow together:

1. You book your appointment online or via phone.

2. You show up at the studio or location of your choice.

3. You pick your favorite images the same day from your private gallery provided.

4. You receive your final retouched images the very next day via email.

5. Your edited finals are delivered via email in two sizes: for print and web.

When you book your appointment we will discuss what your needs are for the images. What is your industry, what are the standards, how will you use the images, etc. We will also discuss wardrobe, background color choices, and makeup. We can also assist with wardrobe choices if needed. Making sure you get the images you need and love, is our primary goal.

bio leea 2 Professional Headshot Photography in Asheville

Camera shy? I’ve photographed hundreds of people who have never had a professional headshot before. My job is to take a great image of you, and also make you feel comfortable during the process. When you enter the studio, you will find an easygoing and artistic atmosphere. Upon arriving I will ask you a few questions that will help us take the perfect image for your needs. My goal is to make your photo shoot experience easy and enjoyable.

When people come to be photographed they are usually starting out on a new journey or going through some kind of change. I’ve been photographing people for nearly twenty years, while living all around the globe, and have seen many big life changes along the way. With a background in beauty and editorial photography, I have a knack for making my clients feel confident and at ease. I started Asheville Headshots eight years ago to help the people of Asheville be seen. Running a photo studio in the River Arts District is a lot of fun. I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and hearing colorful life stories.

Whether I am working with a big company or an individual, I always aspire to show people in their very best light. It makes me happy to deliver high quality, professional results that help my clients improve their lives.

p.s Even if you are extremely camera shy, I will still get a good picture of you. 😉 I look forward to working with you!

A few of my favorite client testimonials..


“Asheville Headshots, and Leea particularly, is amazing! She made a person who does not like getting their photo taken feel very comfortable. She was quick and professional, and her studio is very relaxing. The photos turned out amazing, too, and I would NEVER say that about photos of myself! Highly recommend!”

– Mallory, Paralegal

“Leea is a true professional. There’s an attention to craft that’s unlike any photographer I’ve seen. She’s got all the tools and gadgets of a photographer that loves what she does. The studio is homey feeling and her preparation to capture you is uncanny. The prices are reasonable and even her shots unedited are beautiful. Her retouching is one of a kind. Getting headshots is indeed an investment of oneself, and Leea makes that a perfect investment. When I win an Oscar it’s going to be off one of Leea’s headshots hands down.

– Esmond, Actor

“Wow! Leea did it again! Six months ago, on a whim, I decided to get headshots taken at Asheville Headshots. I was over the top pleased with the results and the entire experience. Turned out to be one of my best decisions. So of course I went back to Leea when I needed more photos. She remembered me and treated me like a dear friend! Her photography skills are so fabulous….somehow she makes me look 15 years younger! Her camera skills are like a secret superpower! I’ll be back for more, you got me hooked!”

– Renee, Counselor

“In an area drowning in wedding and family photographers, finding someone who does quality portrait photography is incredibly difficult. Leea is an absolute storyteller with a camera. Her abilities in composition, timing, expression, and movement are unmatched in this area. If you’re looking for balanced, striking portraits that capture your personality, Leea has a keen eye for just that.”

– Stephen, IT Specialist
