Inga Bilaisyte

“I purchased a photo session for my daughter-in-law as a baby shower gift, to be used for maternity or newborn photos (she chose maternity). The photos are magical - they perfectly capture their love story. Leah is a talented photographer who brings out the very best, and is so easy to work with. Both my son and daughter-in-law thoroughly enjoyed their session. If you're looking for a photographer, look no further. You won't be disappointed.”

“Leah was awesome to work with. I went in with a little vision of what I wanted my shoot to look like and she used all the natural elements in my favor. The outcome of the photo shoot gave me several awesome options to choose from for my song release. I highly recommend Salt Drifter Photography for your photo needs in Kona.”
