Meet Leanne

Capturing your memories with passion

Owner / Photographer / Creator

In 2011 Leanne Gundersen Photography was born.  It has been an exciting adventure to meet families in many different locations.  
Born and raised in South Africa, I have an Accounting degree but following the birth of our first son, I found my passion in photography and capturing special moments. I quickly swapped my calculator for my trusty camera and have not looked back since.  It brings me great pleasure to capture moments with your family, while getting to know you as a family.

Early on I decided to specialise in maternity, newborn & family photography.  Through the years I have met so many different families and have had the pleasure to capture wonderful memories for them.  From being pregnant, the birth of their children and then watching as they grow through birthday parties and family photo sessions.  This has blessed me with wonderful friends and the pleasure of being a part of so many families. 

I also enjoy travelling and am grateful to have opportunities to to incorporate photo sessions into my globe trotting adventures.
I am a very proud mom of two young boys and am married to my very best friend.  With our first born arriving in Chile, our second in South Africa and us now living in Norway, I am constantly amused by our mixed cultural and multi-language home (English, Afrikaans, Spanish and Norwegian).  We are happily settled in Lommedalen (Norway) and I have managed to set up a lovely photographic studio even though I offer in-home photo sessions and travel to various destinations.
During the winter season I enjoy snowboarding and am considering skiing this year, in summer I can be found on my mountain bike in the Norwegian forrest and for some crazy reason I picked up running and am due to take part in my second half marathon.  Thankfully my loving husband has joined me in this and will pull me along :).  Otherwise to relax I enjoy knitting (photography props can be found on LG Creations by clicking here), sewing, creating just about anything and watching a good movie.  These obviously happen when I’m not with my family or capturing memories for lovely families.
