Sophie is a 36 year old mum of three (Fox, Lotus & Magnolia), married to Brent for 11 years. Born in Orange and now lives in Sydney's Hills District where she also grew up.
She studied photography full time for 1 year before taking a job in a studio in Bondi where she worked for the following 4 years, then moving to a natural light studio which she managed for 4 years, and onto one final studio for 3 years before falling pregnant.
Sophie had her first child at 29, after three miscarriages, her rainbow baby Fox arrived in 2013. From this point her priorities shifted and was cemented by the opening of her own business - Sophie Lea Photography, which is a lifelong passion and she has never looked back.
Sophie Lea Photography was born from a dream of serving clients in a way that really reflected her core values. Honesty, dignity and respect. Sophie wanted, above all, to encourage mothers to be photographed with their kids, and find a way to strongly support this. Through wardrobe, styling, instilling confidence and educating clients of the 'why' we do photographs. She wanted to photograph them with their kids in ways that made them feel beautiful and connected to their families.
That is her mission. For the history to be made, and to include the main character of their child's life - their mother.
